3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of citrus and flowers with little bread from malts. Quite dry and bitter beer however not astringent. Refreshing medium bodied good summer drinker. Surprised by how good it is for a Czech ipa.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottled. Very nice golden body with a nice, stable and beautiful head! Aroma is full of very decent hops, very good as usual. Taste is very balanced and rich (although Apollo California is richer and more exotic), full of fruit notes (banana, grapefruit, mango?). Finish is very long, dry, full of hops and nicely balanced between bitterness and sweetness. Awesome, as usual.

Bottle from Cuso - thank you a lot my friend! Beer pours out of the bottle in a light cloudy golden colour with big steady head and medium body. Great aroma of pine, citra hops and spices. Wonderful taste of fresh aromatic hops, pine, citrus, grapefruit, spices and herbs. Dry-medium bitter finish. Delicious beer, refreshing, quaffable and just great.

(tap 0,5l @ OP (Brno))
Hops, grapefruit, citrusy, light sweet aroma. Hazy golden color. Minimal white head. Medium sweet, light bitter, citrusy taste. Medium-full body. Bitter finish. It wasn’t so extra good as I expected, but still it’s good IPA.

Tapped at Richtar Jakub in Bratislava/Slovakia. I have drunk this great beer many times here. Color is golden like. Taste hoppy, floral, some bitter sweetness. Full bodied and not so easy to drink. A sipper for me. Overall very tasty but a heavy beer.
