COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oblíbené pivo v kalifornských minipivovarech. Kalifornie to je slunce, nápady, energie, optimismus, a to jsme chtěli vtisknout i do naší Californie. Doufáme, že to tam najdete až ji ochutnáte.

33cl bottle at Bella Vida café, Prague. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, tropical fruits, pale malt and hints of yeast. Moderate sweet with moderate flavour intensity and medium bitterness. Tasty and easy to drink APA, fits well on a sunny afternoon.

Barav: oranžově zaltá, pěmna bohatá, držící. Vůně nádherná nasládle citrusová. Chuť: ostřejší chmelový nástup,v pozadí lehká grepová chuť, výrazná chmelová hořkost, příjemný říz. Parádni pivo...

bartlebier (2537) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2015
33cl bb04/2015 courtesy of motelpogo and mowbeer in joint haulage, na zdravi! Good radiant grainy pour. Some citrus rind, lime leaf, fresh grains in aroma. Taste is a revelation of what Bohemian lager can bring to US hops: a grainsponge so rich and textured as to soak up fresh, floral tealeafy hops and citrus rind, releasing them more slowly than crisper standard malt bills, it seems. Drying, well composed, memorable crossover Bohemian PA that would lose a lot in character being more on US-style.

Marko (4268) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 6, 2014
0.75l bottle at the 2+KK Restaurant, thanks Filip! Man, I hate not having notes on this one with me (possibly ever again). All in all, it was better, in my opinion than Apollo Galaxy and Raptor. A superb, sublime fruity aroma hop note struck us immediately, remaining in the taste, balanced just right by enough herbal, fine hoppy bitterness. A superb, sublime APA. Hats off to Matuška.

grew (122) - Wrocław, POLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle. Outstanding aroma of fresh hops from dry hopping: citrus, grass, herbs. Looks tasty with rocky head. Medium bitterness, very pleasant. Very good, highly recommended. And drink it fresh, do not wait for best before date.

Spoko, ale spodziewałem się więcej. Fajny aromat, ale czuć "mokrą szmatę" w tle. Piana fajna, szybko opada do cienkiego "korzuszka" i ładnie oblepia szkło. W smaku przyzwoite, lekka goryczka, ale sprawia wrażenie rozwodnionego.
