COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Anglická IPA pochází z 19.století. Byla vyvážena do Indie, kde byly anglické kolonie. Pivo muselo přežít dlouhou lodní cestu v teple ,a proto se vařilo silnější a více chmelené. Chmel totiž chrání pivo proti škodlivým bakteriím. Pro Raptora jsme použili kombinaci českých, anglických, amerických surovin a náš varný postup. Proto naší verzi nazýváme intercontinental. Zajímavost je ta, že Raptora vyvážíme zpět domů, do Anglie. Intercontinental IPA. 15.9°

Bottle at Gents Bierfestival. Tropical fruits, malt, citrus, sweet, little bitterness, very thin and wattery. Unfortunate.

Garrold (2689) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2015
Tap. Tapped, Leeds. Hazy gold. Film of white head. Chewy, fruit salad hoppage. A bit earthy. A bit walk in the woods. Not the hop punch I might have expected, but it’s robust and fresh. Taste is sticky sweet, turning robust, punchy bitter. Full bodied. Quite rich. Makes the glass sticky. Finishes long, punchy, slightly resinous bitter. Grew on me this one. Good one.

sebletitje (7879) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2015
Sample @ 6de Gents Bierfestival 2015. Orangée, col moyen blanc. Arôme offre un bouquet houblonné modéré, fruité léger en agrumes gardant un bouquet américain type C, et tchčque rappelant le Saaz. Le malt reste en retrait avec ce côté plus tchčque niveau grains. Palais reste dans le męme ton avec une petite note agrumes, légčrement épicé sur la fin. Le profil semble ętre un peu ’off’ au niveau finition. Malt au caractčre carapils. Correcte, un peu douce sur la fin.

77ships (5500) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2015
(Thx! for sharing) Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ Gents Bierfestival 2015. Golden, little white head. Nose is oily bitter, herbal, butter, sugar, yeast,… Taste is butter dough, hay, sweetish, candy, yeast, lightly floral. Hop is light. Body is candy, yeast & dough. Acceptable still despite the sweetness plus butter notes. I am starting to suspect that the Czech like the taste of butter in their beer.

Radek Kliber (6691) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 6, 2015
Where and how: b. 750ml, fresh bottle, tasting.
Aroma mild notes of citrus, sugary muted feel behind. Tad too sweet for any kind of IPA. Disappointing.
Appearance :
Top: large, white rocky cap.
Base: hazy gold.
Palate : medium bodied, ok drinkability, lighter carbonation. Average finish.
Taste: dissapointing. Frontal unrefined sugars followed by mild herbal hop feel. Alcohol initially covered by its sweetness shows up as you continue. Hint of Sulphur on walls.

Rotin (230) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle 0,75l. Cloudy, deep gold colored beer. Sweet aroma of tropical fruits, slightly citrus, malt. Semi-sweet flavor, quite bitter, tropical fruit again, floral hops, pale malt, medium bodied.
Another very good IPA from Matuška.

Ascelja (228) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle 0,75l. Hazy golden body, high white head. Aroma of tropical fruits and honey. Taste is bitter, dry, only slightly sweet. Again tropical fruits (mango, honey dew, papaya), touch of wood. Medium to full body, medium carbonation, sourish aftertaste.
Pleasant warming IPA, but I prefer Zlatá raketa from this brewery.

Tap @ beer geek bar. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of crisp hops, orange, pine and straw. Taste is bitter, crisp and refreshing with notes of pine, citrus and weak grass.
