Pours hazy yellow with medium stable head. Aroma is weak, but great; citrus and fruity notes. Taste is refreshing, wheat malt brings additional notes to taste, well-balanced bitterness and sweetness. Soft carbonation. Overall, undoubtably drinkable, refreshing, nice.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 AROMA: disappointingly weak, sweet tropical fruits, citrus; APPEARANCE: hazy (unfiltered), golden/ peachy, , beige/ivory rich head, really good lacing; TASTE: fair sweetness, medium bitterness, little sour; PALATE: medium body, low carbonation, nice sweet/sour/bitter finish; OVERALL: not bad, thought-provoking, especially comparing to very high ratings, poor aroma. Beer’s expiration date: 20.05.14

Medium, white head and very nice lacing. Cloudy and orange. Bunch of exotic fruits in aroma: pineapple, citrus, melon, mango well completed by resinous notes. Excellent balance in taste: bitter but well counterparted by its ample sweetness. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Easy to drink, lovely AIPA.

Piana drobna, utrzymująca się. Aromat średni (mam wrażenie że w poprzednich warkach był lepszy), przeważają cytrusy. Jedno z lżejszych w smaku AIPA, smak rewelacyjny, goryczka średnia. Fajnie średnio wysycone, w ustach pozostaje sympatyczny smak. Bardzo dobre piwo, chyba najlepsze AIPA jakie piłem :)

Bottle. Nice dark amber color. Fruity aroma. Full of tropical fruits. Nice stable foam. Good licing. Really hoppy and bitter. Citrus, tropical fruits taste with bitter finish.

Grand Prix jest barwy ciemnozłotej, delikatnie mętnej, posiada trwałą, sztywną, oblepiającą szklankę pianę. Jak na American IPA przystało mocny zapach cytrusów (grejpfruta). Smak piwa słodki przełamany goryczką, którą czujemy do samego finiszu. Na mój gust goryczka by mogła być ciut mocniejsza. Podsumowując Grand Prix jest piwem orzeźwiającym, przyjemnym bardzo pijalnym.

Hazy, light golden colour. Medium head. Intensive hoppy aroma. Citrus, pineapple notes up front, intensive aftertaste of fresh hops. Frothy, bubbly mouthfeel.

Very hazy, maybe because of yeasts and for sure wet hopping. Very drinkable, but not so like Rowing Jack from AleBrowar. Full of aromas.

beholder (44) - Poznań, POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Latest batch: Appearance: hazy orange with a big white lasting head. Superb lacing. Aroma: Lots and lots of tropical fruits. Aroma is very refreshing yet quite intense. Very "summery". This beer will be one of my top choices this summer ;) Taste: malty sweetness and tons of citrus. Very nice, medium to high bitterness. Almost perfect taste for an American style IPA. Mouthfeel: medium bodied, medium carbonation Overall: so far one of the best beers in this style that polish breweries have to offer. It’s awesome that Ciechan decided to keep this beer around, rather than brew it just once. I enjoy this one every single time, and every time I’m amazed how great this beer is.
