A - hazy orange with nice stiff and crusty head
S - nice hoppy smell mixed with hops, pine, cranberries and slightly mixed with citrus tones. Simply lovely to smell this one again and again.
T - the body goes with citrus, pine, pretty fresh withhoppy finish, but very well-balanced and with semi-dry finish.
M - medium body with high carbonation
D - very drinkable, fresh

Notes from the brewery:

26 EBC, 55 IBU, Hopps: czech (sládek + žatecký poloraný červeňák), american (Cascade, Amarillo). Malt: pilsner, bavarian, caramel, karapils. Yeast: American Ale Yeast.

So it is not an Indian Pale Ale, but as brewery says - Intercontinental Pale Ale.

Another one on tap at Prague Beer Museum during my last trip there, from my notes.

Nice creamy large 2.5 finger head fades slwoly with nice soapy lacing, hazy golden straw orange color.

Nose brings amazing fresh tropical fruits, citrus, grapefruit, melon, tangerine, juicy fruit and fluffy hint of malt, also a bit floral and grassy hop note.

Taste again nice tropical fruit, papaya, melon, light tangerine citrus, light zest, but fo sweet malt base, but lighter to med bitterness with that. Finish is a little sticky, nice grapefruit and bitterness coming through,.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

Overall again surprised how good a Czech made "American IPA" can be. They must get fresh American hops, and probably cost them a lot, but still the beer is cheap. I'm really starting to love this city.

From notes.

Bright yellow gold, slightly cloudy. Excellent lacing from a rocky, one finger head.

Beautiful nose. Lemongrass, citrus, delicate floral hoppiness. Not too assertively bitter, but very complex.

Just like the nose. Quite an American hop profile. Citrus and stone fruit, floral, pine and resin. Slightly subdued bitterness. It's there but it doesn't dominate the flavors.

Good body. Very drinkable, not heavy. Oily and slick from the hops, with a lot of lingering bitterness. Sticks to the back of your mouth.

This is one of the best European IPAs I have tried so far.

I gave the beer straight 5s since it's probably the best beer I ever had in my life.

The color was golden, slightly brownish. Very full bodied, taste was full, citrusy, I tasted some peach undertones. It stayed remarkably consistent all through the mug. About a finger and a half of foam, that lingered for some time. Some lacing.

Wonderful, wonderful aftertaste, that invited you to drink more and more. Very tricky since it's pretty strong.

I had it on tap in Zly Casy, Prague, poured into an unmarked ale glass.
