Had this at a beer tasting in Prague and was pleasantly surprised I had to go back a second night to enjoy it again. I'd put it up against one of my favorites - Two Hearted Ale. I wish I could find it locally.

Straw color with white head. Aroma has fresh hops with citrus and grassy notes. Taste starts with sweet citrus fruits and finishes quite bitter and dry. Hoppy, dank, citrusy, really good one.

Wow! Picked this up on a whim in a beer shop in Brno and was blown away. This is a really stunning take on an American IPA, brewed with Amarillo, Columbus and Citra. As could be expected from a fantastic blend of hops, this smells and tastes glorious - uncapping it is like cutting into a mango. It's an exceptionally well-balanced beer - bitter enough to please hopheads, but not to the point where it drowns out everything else - it has a lovely malt backbone, and that oily, stickiness that you associate with really good IPA/DIPAs . To me this is on a par with Pliny - it really is that tasty.

Will definitely be trying the rest of the Matuška line - or at least as many as I can get my hands on! Na zdraví!
