3fourths (8239) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2011
draft at prague beer museum. fruity apple and grassy American hop nose; strong pear and fruit cocktail character. high bitterness, pasty and rough everywhere, over-estery, waxy and fruity, and comes across like an American-stye pale ale with citrus rind and kiwi lingering. medium body, moderately chewy, and a bit too sweet.

Quack-Duck (8230) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2010
bottle from Zly Casy. Clear, perhaps slightly hazy golden colour, mid-sized white head. Hoppy nose. Medium-bodied with a solid malty base, but the emphasis of course is on the delicious Centennial hops. Slightly citrusy with a herbal-resiny touch. A pleasure! Superb quality from a very reliable brewery.

MartinT (8135) - 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.

First off, awesome name for the brewery. Second this was my first IPA in months so it gets a bias, but I LOVED it. Nice mango in the smell and taste.

Had this on draught at GBBF, Olympia, London, Tuesday 12th August 2014 Pours gold, light haze with a slight white head. Refreshing hoppy beer, quite lagery, bit of dusty furniture on nose, bitter aftertaste. Good. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.7

Scopey (7455) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2011
Keg at 6% at the Euston Tap. It pours hazy light straw yellow, with a very thin off-white head and high carbonation. The nose is sweet orange, hay, bread and straw. The taste is lemon, lime, sweet orange, metal, hay, grass, sweaty socks and cardboard. it starts out quite sweet and finishes with a citrusy, moderate bitter taste. Too much metal coming through from the carbonation. I agree with the previous suggestions that this is more like a hoppy lager.

motelpogo (7054) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 6, 2012
on tap at klub malych pivovaru on numerous occasions. enticing shade of golden, light haze and indefatigable head; aroma of pine forest after rain; juicy texture with wrigley juicy fruit chewiness, menthol and plenty of citric bitterness. somehow i get the feeling this beer has become a little toned down recently with a less boisterous aroma but it’s still a delight

KyotoLefty (6739) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2013
Keg at GBBF. golden, cloudy, with a low head. Lemony hopp and pilsner malt nose. Rich and tasty Czech malt flavor, bready, good american hops. Nice stuff. More like an APA. Czech malt profile comes across nicely.

DSG (6352) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 11, 2012
Plastic bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Hazy golden. Aroma of "green", floral and citric hops and light skunky notes. Bitter hoppy flavor with very light maltiness and some grapefruit. Medium-bodied. OK.
