SonOfAnarchy (399) - ST HELENA - APR 30, 2017
Bottle. Pours clear dark golden/pale amber, nice whiteish head. Aroma of exotic fruit and a slightly sour citrus. Taste is sweetish, with average to low bitterness; flavors of pretty intense tropical fruits, citrus, orange pulp, with a touch of malt in the background. Great mouthfeel and drinkability! Medium to full body, slick texture, average carbonation.

MikeBeermaster (727) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - APR 29, 2017
Noble aroma of exotic freshness with notes of ripe citrus - bit of tartness from them with sweety back. Clear orange in the glass with frothy snow-white head. However, very good lacing. Taste is semi sweet with bunch of exotic pulp and some citrusy freshness, bit of herbal hoppines and faint resin. Beer is full bodied, but very fresh and highly drinkable even it has something about 7% ABV. Finish is literally meaty with exotic punch and touch of malts. An excellent IPA.

Iznogud (3626) - CROATIA - APR 27, 2017
Bottle, 750 ml, courtesy of Giggsywiggsy. Shared with Trolleo and JFK10000. Pours golden, white head. Malty, some fruitness, vague bitterness in finish. Quite underwhelming, probably due to the bottling. Will re-rate.

kappldav123 (6069) - GERMANY - APR 18, 2017
Tap at Prague Beer Museum at Namesti Miru. Light golden in the glass, nice head. Mild fruity hoppy aroma. Starts mild, malty, fruity, light salty hints. Reminds me a bit of a gose. Finish still mild, some moldy notes. Interesting.

Biroholik (1179) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - APR 17, 2017
Data ważności: 30.05.2017
Butelka: 750 ml
Kolor: Żółty, wpadający w złoty.
Piana: Obfita, drobnoziarnista, bogata. Wysoko idzie do góry. Powolutku opada w dół do sporego kożuszka. Lacing pierwszorzędny.
Zapach: Złota rakieta pachnie lasem złożonym z drzew iglastych. Tu modrzew, tam sosna, dużo żywicy. Pod nimi intensywna woń owoców egzotycznych: słodka marakuja, mango, papaja. Dalej tylko kapka cytrusów (mandarynki, pomarańcze). W dalekim tle odrobina karmelu, tylko kapka dla równowagi.
Smak: W pierwszym kontakcie piwo wydaje się mocno cytrusowe. Zest z owoców cytrusowych: mandarynki, grejpfruty, pomarańcze, limonki. Posmak przegryzionej skórki grejpfruta i pomarańczy przez długi czas utrzymuje się w ustach. Po pewnym czasie pojawia się ta sama sugestia co w aromacie - las, żywica, sosna. Goryczka w piwie jest długa, intensywna. Finisz wystawny, grejpfrutowy. Tekstura gęsta, zbita. Zbyt wysokie wysycenie jest jedynym minusem. Poza tym cholernie smaczne.
Wysycenie: Wysokie.
Podsumowanie:
Rakieta jest wysoce pijalnym India Pale Ale. Doskonale gasi pragnienie i powoduje uśmiech na twarzy przy każdym łyku. Od samego początku czuć solidne nachmielenie. Widać, że piwowar nie żałował lupoliny ;) Piwo zaskakuje intensywnością akcentów owoców cytrusowych z dodatkiem żywicy i lasu. Matuska po raz kolejny potwierdza swoja wysoka klasę i umacnia swoją pozycję lidera na czeskiej scenie craftowej.

vami (413) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 22, 2017
Strong tropical aroma with hints of pine, golden color, decent bitterness, no caramel notes (good!), could be less carbonated, long bitter finish. Definitely a yes from me :)

pavel_c (3) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 23, 2017 does not count
One of my favorite beers, because of great taste and availability in Prague. Taste: Balanced pleasant taste, slightly flavoured, slightly bitter. Foam and appearance: As expected for unfiltered IPA. Price: Average for handcrafted IPA in our region. Where: bottled version from shops in Prague, draft version in pubs in Prague.
