KoNrRiI (1260) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2016

0.33 bottle.
Hazy, dark gold color and a large, creamy, white head. Aroma of pines, grapes, citruses, mango, and flowers. Taste is maltier than expected with a noticeable amount of hay in the background, though bitter hoppy notes of pines and conifers still play first fiddle without the fruity additions this time. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long but its bitterness does not create that sensation of sucking on the gums know from other IPAs. Overall the beer is quite orthodox, but well-crafted and simply speaking pleasant.

BlazerT (597) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - NOV 4, 2016
Bottle. Deep golden, medium hazy with medium, semi-thick, white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is mainly citrus notes (grapefruit, lime/lemon peel), secondly some piney and lightly flowery. Nicely balanced with medium malty profile (caramel, bread). Taste is medium to high bitter, partly broken by some sweet accents, in the end definitely highly bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is bitter and semi-dry. In general very hopped, aromatic IPA with nice citrus accents.
