COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We introduce new special guest in our brewery. It is India Pale Ale (IPA). Our IPA is top-fermented beer brewed from Czech ingredients and two kinds of American hops ( Amarillo and Cascade). It combines full malt body with high hop bitterness and hoppy aroma.

Cunningham (4327) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013

Appearance: Cloudy amber color with a fine off white head. Good lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, hoppy and something that felt like Belgian yeast.
Palate: Medium body. Tad sweet and a rich bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Grape hoppy, tropical fruity and yeast.
Overall impression: Unusual yeast taste in this one. A new style: Belgian IPA! I do not know I that was planned or just because of storage. There is no bb time on the label.
Personal stats: Bottle from a trade with Cuso

330 ml bottle. BB? From Cuso. Děkuji moc!
Cloudy golden brown colour with an average sized foamy off-white head. Berries, mild bitterness, rhubarb and some maltiness in the aroma. The flavour is hoppy bitterness, berries and some musty notes. Not very balanced. Would need some freshness. Bitterness in the aftertaste.

MrW (399) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2013
On tap @ Strahov, Prague. Nose of peche, fruits, grains (in the air that day), summerfruits. Orange colour, a lot of sparkling, off-white head, lacing and lasting. Summerfruits in the taste, a bit bitter, not that large taste. Bitter and fruity finish. I like it but IPA is not my style, I guess.

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle shared by Ryan. Thanks. Orange pour with a tall off-white head. Caramel, toast, and sweet potato on the nose. Some pine, a bit of grapefruit peel, and grass. Pretty sweet. The flavor is really malty, too. Caramel, toast, and bread. More sweet potato, light citrus, grass, and some pine bitterness.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Draft, brewery. English style with rounded soft fruitiness, floral hops are subdued. Body has some heft, matching the overall weightiness of the flavor.

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2013
From tap @Richtár Jakub, Bratislava. Two-finger beige foamy head. Foggy orangey amber body. Inviting hop aroma; Gooseberries, oranges and roseship. Light sweetish malt flavor with a little harshness to it. Soft fruity hop flavor. Mild, yet distinct bitterness. Good body. Smooth in the mouth. Balanced malty-bitter end. Drinks very good.

Awesome IPA thanks to RB tasting in Long Beach! Lots of hops with a wonderful palate. Overall pretty light with a nice fruity aroma. I approve.

GT2 (8269) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 30, 2013
330mL thanks to mowbeer. Thanks! Pours clear orange. Soapy lacing. Nose is cheesy, pretty typical stale IPA. Dusty. Taste is nutty, orange candies, palate wrecking tannic/astringent over boiled hops. Disappointing.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 (tap 0,5l @ OP (Brno)) Nice saaz hops, light citrusy aroma. Light hazy, dark golden color. Huge white head. Medium sweet, medium bitter, well balanced, light caramel flavour. Full body. Long bitter finish. Nice soft IPA.
