1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
From the Rare Beer Club. Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow-golden color with an enormous creamy and fluffy orange-white head that built up a full 2 inches over the top of the glass without spilling over. The aroma was earthy, musty, grassy, lemony and had notes of sweettart candies and sulfur. The flavor was bitter and tart with strong sulfur, egg whites, floral hops and grass with a light bready undertone. The finish was long and bitter with strong sulfur and egg white lingering. Moderately full bodied. Awful!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(750ml bottle thanks to blutt59) clearish medium yellow with soapy bubbles. Nose is EXTREMELY funky, cat urine, funky, cheese that a cat peed on, sulfur and apples. Taste of medium citrus bitterness, oranges, fresh citrus, pine and creamy body. Very weird.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden orange, whitish ring. Aroma is cat pee, light sour twinge, malty sweet. Taste is more sweet, funky fruit, weird hoppy. I enjoyed it in a not so IPA sort of way.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Hazy, pale golden colour with a big and persistent foamy white head. Fruity noble hoppy aroma with notes of lemon and pineapples on a mildly sweet malty background. Moderately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a smooth and pleasant carbonation. Dry malty base with fruity and slightly herbal hoppy taste; dry mildly malty and pronounced fruity and herbal-spicy hoppy finish. Nice IPA-interpretation from the Czech Republic. 20.X.10

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Highly carbonated golden ale with a nice white head. Smell is very earthy and grape like. Taste is bitter with a sweet grape and bread like flavor. It taste like a sour ale a little bit. Not a bad start for a hybrid style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a huge white head. The aroma is pretty wild. I get a strong cat piss aroma along with some citrus and bready malts. The flavor is more of the same with some funky cat piss, citrus, pine, bread and some low bitterness. This is one of the funkier, cattier IPAs that I have tried. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Rare Beer Club bottle: pours a hazy golden. huge fluffy white head. What an interesting nose. FUNK is the word. always wondered what an earthy basement aroma with some yeasty cheese smelled like. simply odd and made you wondering what you’re going to get. Pretty slick in texture. citrus fermenting fruit with a bit of unique hop strain that adds upfront bitterness briefly that quickly fades for a soft finish. Interesting to say the least. Enjoyable.
