Aroma more complex than taste (dry hopping), malty, very good, nothing too extravagant, very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle from trade with motelpogo and mowbeer: na zradví, lads! Pretty much chalky-contained aroma, not betraying much of an IPA aroma. In terms of mouthfeel as pleasant and chewy as any nefiltrovano CZ pivo, with dry roast coming in, and a coriander, mint and nettle hop bouquet with a lingering pine & white citrus rind finish. Another interesting CZ-US transatlantic crossover stuck halfway.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Dark amber hazy and cloud body with a creamy white foam, not very stable. Not very flamoyant, but proper aroma, classic for IPA - slight hop tones, some malts, herbs, a bit of fruit and citruses, liked it. Tastes rather bitter (almost heavy bitter) with a slight feeling of sour in the beginning. Oily texture, soft carbonation, long and very hoppy finish. Nice try, but far away of the ideal image of IPA. But not so bad, really.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500 ml. bottle split by 2 @ Delirium Cave. BBF 14/11/2013 (mmm….). Pours a clear amber with a creamy, lasting off-white head (or as well as I can tell in a basement). Nose is pretty hoppy with lots of grass, very floral character, nettles, wild green plants coupled with some caramel malts & candy sugar sweetness. Taste is pretty drying, bitter raw & floral hops, nettles, lots of hops going into mild, toffee, caramel malts & candy sugar sweetness with a lingering bitter finish. Good carb. & easy to drink. Very different from the typical USA profile which is great, easy to drink, lovely beer which every one liked. Expected to see higher scores on here.
