500ml bottle from Pivoteka Za popen’t, Ljubljana (€2.90):
This one was a really enjoyable & pleasantly well-balance IPA that was perhaps a touch sweeter than expected but still remained easy to drink with a nice orange & mango taste that blended well together, going down very easily.

Hazy dark orange, a bit dirty, with a small long-lasting creamy white head.
Smells really good, with pineapple, peach, sweet orange, faint mango, lime, even strawberry (?), light caramel and biscuit.
Lots of citrus up front, juicy pineapple, a bit of sourness tho, not too bad, quite refreshing. Faint tropical fruit, light orchard fruity sweetness. A bit of caramel, some dry grainy malts that aren't too good tho. A bit of sulphur. Lots of bitter peel in the finish, grassy hop.
Aftertaste has citrus hop, a bit of bitterness, with that unattractive bad grainy note diminishing. Medium body, smooth carbonation.
A really nice IPA, but not without its faults. Still a great end result.

This Slovenian craft pours a very hazy content, orange in color with a very weak foam.
There is a very pleasant sweet and citrusy aroma.
The taste following is very bitter with some citruses in the back. There is also a slight metal feel in the back, but not to exaggerated.
A very enjoyable and tasty IPA.
