COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IPA - India Pale Ale, styl, který se zrodil na britských ostrovech, aby uspokojil královské vojáky v daleké Indii. Cesta to tehdy byla dlouhá a rozhodně ne jednoduchá. Reinkarnován byl americkými sládky na konci minulého stoleti. Kocour Quarterback je spojení amerického sportu čislo 1., amerického fotbalu a pivního stylu čislo 1. u amerických "craft breweries", stylu IPA. Svěží, dynamické, intzenzívní. Osvěžení je dlouhé a rozhodně ne jednoduché. Jak se na nejhořčejší české pivo sluší a patří.

Bottle. Brown clear liquid with frothy, stable white head. Aroma is balanced, with malty caramel and roast and hoppy citruses and flowers. Taste has nice bitter basis with candy-floss like sweetness in it. Beer is full bodied with oily texture. Finishing bitter. Nicely brewed IPA, very refreshing.

visionthing (3524) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2015
On tap at Zlý Casy, Prague. Slightly hazy deep amber with an off-white head. Fruity, hoppy and quite caramelly aroma with tropical fruits, pine and hints of citrus. A nice Czech double IPA - that I certainly wouldn’t believe some years ago. Sweet, hoppy, very flavourful, quite bitter, but still somewhat balanced. Certainly decent stuff!

Bamsen78 (4255) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2015
Draught @ Zlý Časy, Prague. Pours slightly hazy amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, malt and fruit, with citric notes. Sweetish, malty and fruity flavour, with bitter notes of hops and needles. Lavendel notes towards the lingering, bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Good, but a little too aromatic.

750ml bottle - thanks VastActiv!
Just at its BB. Rough vegetal hops. Sweet caramel. Not at its best maybe. Sweet and sticky. Messy pungent hops. Very unsophisticated. Very "Craft".

Marduk (3828) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 18, 2015
750ml bottle @Laiti’s, thanks. Viscous amber color full of not sinking or floating floaty bits. Small size, white head, stays. Sour, farty, sweet, fruity aroma. Sourish, sweet, malty taste. Signs of going off. Soft bitterness. Nope.

laiti (7263) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2015
75 cl bottle @ home, BBE 10.06.2015. Thanks VastActiv!
Aroma has vanilla, some fruity tones and biscuits. Also apricot. Flavour has nettles, minerals, some grapefruit, apricot and some harsh biscuity malt. Somewhere between British and American. Too dry, could use more fruits.

VastActiv (3859) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle 0.75l at Laiti’s, Helsinki. Thanks to mmahut! Colour is clear orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, hops and malts. Lots of farmhouse and barnyard elements. Aroma is very bad.

tiong (4643) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2015
750ml bottle

Pours dark orange with a small head. Aroma of stingy grassy hops, ripe fruits, hints of caramely malts and earthy notes. Taste is earthy, ripe fruity and a bit stuffy with some toffee and sweet syrupy hoppiness. Finish is sweet, earthy and ripe fruity with some hints of yeast and hops. A bit stuffy and unbalanced.

WillemsUrenkel (887) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2015
0,3 l bottle bought directly at the brewery. Clear dark amber in the glass, small fast fading head. Full fruity nose, hop malt and sweetness. Starts hopy bitter, resin, malt, pepper sharpness. Alcoholic in the aftertaste. Heavy stuff.

kokos666 (23) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAY 29, 2015
butelka 330ml. Piana ok barwa bursztynowa. Aromat chmielowo ( batdziej las i kwiaty niz owoce) slodowy, ale niezbyt intensywny- przy dipa przydaloby sie wiecej pierdolniecia. Smak za to zdecydowanie lepszy piwo, wytrawne ale bardzo dobrze ukryte alko a nie cale 9% tego jest. Fajne, odbija sie chmielem ale w duza butelk? radze nie inwestowa?.

Clear copper with a thick white head. Nose is caramel, herbs, citruses peel, grapefruits and candy sugar. Carbon is light, body full and texture oily. Taste is bitter. Palate ie dominated by pine, citruses and a bit of caramel. D@Kurniksopa
