alex_leit (2013) - Minsk, BELARUS - JUN 10, 2013
Draft at Zly Casy. Citrus and grass aroma, medium bitterness (70 IBU? Where?), not a very balanced IPA, as for me.

Majek (697) - Ząbki, POLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Cloudy yellow color with medium head (nice lacing). Not very intensive aroma of citrus and hay. Taste is fabolous, lots of citrus (grapefruit, mango, orange) and herbal (like czech pilsener). Behind it, there’s also nice malty and bready background. Very bitter, but the bitterness is not sharp. Absolutely phenomenal IPA

Lore (2084) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 25, 2013
cloudy golden colour, moderate white head; aroma of grassy and citrussy hops with some maltyness; taste is dominated by hoppy bitterness with grapefruit notes and some malty sweetness;correct ipa, but not too multi-dimensional

TriggerHappy (55) - Berlin, NORFOLK ISLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Owocowo-żywiczny zapach i niezła goryczka, piana szybko opada, piwo niezłe ale IPA to to nie jest.

Very good beer with nice golden color and soft fruit aroma. If you drink this beer, you have the feeling you can drink hectoliters of it because its not so heavy.

sputnikus (96) - Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 2, 2013
Bottle. Golden colored liquid, very clear with fair white head. Aroma is very citrusy, also some grass and not very good iron note. Taste is bittersweet, like unfiltered orange juice. Medium body with sticky texture and average carbonation. Clean, zesty finish. I expected little bit more from this.

PET-bottle from Zly Casy Pivoteka, Prague. Somewhat hazy pale golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Grapefruit aroma, citrus, peach, grassy hops, iron notes. Quite bitter hoppy grass flavor, citrus, grapefruit, floral notes, pine spes. Hoppy bitter finish with pine apes, pears and grass.

JulienHuxley (5578) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2013
On tap at Toulavy Kocour Pub Brno (03/03/13). Hazy very pale gold pour with frothy pure white head. Aroma is a real citrus bomb, citra/centennial, orange pulp, really perfumy and enticing. Flavor of freshly squeezed orange juice, nice citrusy taste, biscuity malts, really clean, good zesty finish, bitterness is light. Palate is light, nice and dry, medium carbonation. Really good.

Draft at BBF 2013. Hazy golden, medium white head. Aroma of grass and light fruit. Taste is bittersweet and fruity straw.

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Super citrusy and floral hoppiness moves into refined base malts before leaving a trail of resinous bitterness on the palate.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam garnishes the dark golden haze.
-The hop bitterness also has grassy edges.
-Mouthfeel is slender, very drinkable.
-It could be more aromatic, but it is a very friendly, refined hop vehicle.

On tap at U Toulavy Kocour, Brno.
