3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewpub. A hazy amber beer with an yellowish head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, and spicy hops, leading to a bitter finish. A boring IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Cam. Pours golden with white head. Aroma is quite funky and spicy, peppery, earthy, bretty. Similar taste, funky, earthy and peppery. Quite bitter with a tang. Judging by other reviews, looks like there might be quite a big difference between batches.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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.

Draft, brewery. English style with rounded soft fruitiness, floral hops are subdued. Body has some heft, matching the overall weightiness of the flavor.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
