COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Původně vychází z GB Pale Ale. Pokusili jsme se vytvořit letní pivo, které skloubí výrazné aroma Zlaté rakety a pitelnost Californie. Zároveň si zachová přiměřenou plnost a sílu, která je vhodná pro teplé letní večery. Použili jsme chmel Galaxy nabitý australským sluncem, který dodává s chmelem Citra výrazné aroma po tropickém ovoci. Pro hořkost piva byl použit americký chmel Apollo (17,7% alpha hořkých kyselin, nejsilnější chmel zatím použitý v našem pivovaře).

Beautiful yellow body and great head. Aroma of fruity hops with many layers. Flavour is a balanced hops delivery with a nice dry finish. It’s a perfect IPA. Found it out on the edge of Prague, then found it again at Field restaurant in the centre of Prague (bring money if you go there).

Garrold (2691) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2015
Tap. Tapped, Leeds. Opaque, orange gold. Swirls of carbonation keep an eggshell of a head alive. Damp, resinous, citric hop. Barley sugar. Some basil like herb. Taste is punchy, pithy bitter. Little in the way of sweetness. Comes over a tad drying. Body feels a bit thin, probably not helped by being too fizzy. Punchy bitter finish. Ok.

Hazy dark blond. Aroma is a bit soapy, lemony. Flavour has some mild apple. Light bodied. Something in the background is a bit earthy and stinky.

Taste fuity sweetish with strong bitter hoppy final. Medium body soft carbonation. Smooth almost sticky finish. Looks like a mild IPA, excellent one.

sebletitje (7896) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2015
Sample @ 6de Gents Bierfestival 2015. Dorée, col fin blanc. Arôme est fruité, frais et vert manquant un peu de donner la complexité du Galaxy. Le tout est frais avec un agréable bouquet d’agrumes. Palais est léger malté, fin amer, houblonné moyen et fruité avec un fleuri trčs plaisant. Retrouve ce profil malté présent dans de nombreuses bičres tchčques, une présence grains de premier ordre. Sachant la teneur du Galaxy en contenu fruité, j’attendais un peu plus de cette version. Reste solide.

Alengrin (3401) - BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2015
At GBF. Czech interpretation of APA, with stable, creamy head and hazy golden blonde colour. Aroma of floral hops, biscuit, peach and stale sweat - the latter not being too pleasant, obviously. Crisp, fruity taste, smooth mouthfeel, bit toasted and caramelly with aromatic, spicy, floral hop bitterness in the end. Conceptually okay, but the ’sweatiness’ in the nose bothered me a bit.

77ships (5535) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2015
(Thx! for sharing) 750 ml. bottle sampled @ Gents Bierfestival 2015. Hazy orange, small white head. Nose is very raw & hoppy, grass, floral, raw barn & hay, tad malts, raw in a good way. Taste is raw, almost a bit wort-like, bitter dry grass, flowers, plants, hay, light cereal + honey malt sweetness in the back,… Body is raw, malty & strongly dry and bitter. Unrefined in a good way, quite nice.

Small, off-white head over hazy amberish orange beer. Citrus, sourish fruit, spices. Bitter flavour; citruspeel, bit of restsugars. Light body, slick, lightly oily MF. Quite OK.
