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).

DSG (5634) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Alexey and Refaela’s place. Thanks Alexey and Refaela. Clear golden with a white head. Wonderful hoppy aroma full of tropical fruits, citrus and some "green" notes. Flavor has faint sweetness, lots of fruity and "green" hops and a moderately bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Really good and extremely refreshing.

McNeillR (1092) - SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Pale slightly hazy golden, decent white contrast cover of head. Piney, floral and sweaty weed. Tinny clean lemon, fair dunt of carbonation - light lemon, creamy sweet throughout. Very passable for the ABV. Finishes slightly soapy, lingers a bit dry lemon - nice work.

Bottle, Alps Game Tasting, Cheers Camertron!

wolfcarnival (56) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 19, 2014
Drunk 16/05/14 at geek sesh with cam, rach, garth, lucia. garth sorted us out with this. pours hazy golden with a big a head. aroma is less tropical and more hoppy grassy pine and cirtus. garth said it smelled like weed and i got that. taste is apricots, mango, grapefruit. feels light and sweet with a balanced bitter finish. delicious and quenching. i enjoyed this more than the raptor, and im lookin forward to giving the cali and raketa a go. hopefully they keep getter better and better

CanCrusher (600) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle 0,75L. Clear, dark golden, almost bronze colour with large, white, frothy head. Aroma of orange, lemon, pine, peach, a bit of honey. Taste starts light sweet and fruity and became medium bitter and hoppy at the end of the sip, with long lasting aftertaste. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Another good beer from Matuška...

On tap in prague.. Nice looking pale ale with aroma og hoppy goodness.. Lots and lots of citrussy and exotic fruits. Dangerously drinkable, perfect balance with dry and nicely bitter finnish... Its all about the hops and it seems these guys really know their thing when it comes to hoppyness.. Truely world class stuff here... Was really not expectin such an awesome hoppy stuff here in czech.. Well done!
