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.

pivnizub (9900) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2010
Lahev ( z pivoteky): Golden, unclear, big stable fluffy to rocky white head; distinctive dry herbal-hoppy nose (Centennial) with some sweet pale malt underneath; soft and medium bodied, solid dry bitter-sweet flavour, creamy MF; lingering - hops stick to the palate - dry herbal-hoppy finish with a good pale-malty balance. Pretty czech hop-bomb.......

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

MoritzF (9156) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2010
(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

Quack-Duck (9079) - 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.

3fourths (8988) - 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.

MartinT (8987) - 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.

KyotoLefty (8858) - 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.
