One of the best Czech beer I´ve ever have. Great taste, smell, color and I just hope that there will be more czech IPAs in a near future!

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 8, 2011
Bottle. Hazy golden, frothy and quite durable head. Aroma is strong citrusy hops with a lingering graininess that resembles that of a Czech pilsener, plus some hay. Also a bit flowery and some faint strawberries. Great, fresh and rustical aroma. Carbonation slightly above moderate. Taste is lightly estery-malty at the front with a heavy and broad citrusy-grapefruity bitterness at the back, accompanied by that rustical grain-hay collage. Fantastic!

Majek (384) - 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

Tap. Heavy creamy lasting head. Hazy golden colour. aroma of citrus fruits, heavy hops. Initially medium to heavy bitter taste,that eventually evolves into heavy bitter kick. Full body. Long dry bitter finish, wonderful hops aroma present all the time.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2012
On tap in Plzen. A great beer. Lots of hops and citrus fruits in the aroma, orangey-yellow colour, bitter and slightly sweet in taste with nice citrus notes and a little pine.

Szép, masszív habbal indít, ami elég hamar leül. Szűretlen, kellemesen homályos borostyán színben pompázik. Íze jellegzetes IPA kellőképpen keserű, ami végig tart, percekkel később is marad a számban az erős keserű íz. Hozza az elvárt Kocour minőséget, személy szerint nagyon kedvelem ezt a kis főzdét.

Pepefromdale (10) - 6963 Dale i Sunnfjord, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2011
Citrusy aroma, hay. Light orange, small white head, cloudy. Taste is mosty bitter as to be expected from an IPA. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter and longslastning finish. This beer can be recommended.

InPivoVeritas (291) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - FEB 27, 2013
Color - fine, pale orange. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon and grass. Very rich citrus taste. Strong, long lasting bitterness. Carbonation a bit too high. Very good IPA.

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.
