COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American IPA – the first association that appears when hearing AIPA is a rich nose of aromas. AIPA bewilders you with hop aromas of citrus origin, flowers, pine forest or tropical fruit. The beer is of copper to amber hue with orange flickering. Due to dry hopping it may be a bit hazy. The beer is covered with a firm, small bubble , thick head. In the flavor similarly to the aroma we find all the awesome accents of the used hops. The distinct and pronounced bitterness and hoppyness is balanced with a malty base backbone. Despite the presence of the malty side the beer is neither caramel dull nor thick and heavy. The hoppy aftertaste should not be acute, but inviting to taking another sip. To sum up we can state that the beer is remarkably drinkable and it makes the most out of American hop varieties.

Ingredients: water, barley malts, wheat malt, hops: Cascade, Chinook, Citra, Centennial, Mosaic, Amarillo, yeast. Hopped seven times. During mashing, added to the primary fermentation wort, 4 times to the brewing cauldron, dry hopping. IBU: 85. Brewing method: traditional, top fermentation, non-filtered, pasteurized, Beer style : AIPA, alc. 6.0% vol., hue: amber, clarity: hazy, shelf life 2.5 month.

Warka do 02/02/2015r. Duza chmielowosc i zywicznosc w smaku. Pierscien piany ladnie zdobi szklo. Do tego drobna koronka W aromacie czuje poza oczywistosciami alkohol. Mimo tego Kormoran IPA, to najbezpieczniejszy zakup 2014r.

Amber to copper, clear body, with a medium, creamy, slightly yellow head.
Fruity, flowery aroma of citrus, passion fruit, pineapple and other tropical fruits, peach, berries, pine, some caramel.
Tastes of citrus, pine, peach, tropical fruits, slight grass, biscuit.
Medium, quite creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes long, bitter, zesty, a bit grassy and slightly sweet malty.

Tasty! Very fruity, with a smooth malt backbone, balanced by a nice, piney and zesty hop bite. Really enjoyable!

Coś temu piwu brakuje, na pewno super dla miłośników stylu, ale przyznam że Atak Chmielu mimo mocniejszej goryczki był dla mnie bardziej przyjemny pod postacią posmaku słodowego która i tak tam była słaba, tutaj trafiłem na piwo nie specjalne, może dobre w stylu ale jakoś nie przekonywujące. W takiej ludzkiej ocenie bez kategorii 7/10.

For starters - it’s good to see for once a good, interesting story on a beer back label, not some pretentious bullshit, so that’s a good beginning. But enough of that. Beer itself is very good as well. Strong pine and flower aroma, intensive, full bitterness in taste, which stays in mouth for just the right amount of time. Heard from some people that it stays for too long, but I wouldn’t agree. For me, this is just fine. Great effort, Kormoran.

Bardzo przyjemne piwo. Pi?kny, cytrusowy aromat, tak?e troch? kwiatowe nuty. W smaku bardzo ciekawe, fajne chmielowe. Zbalansowana, ?rednio intensywna goryczka. Spodziewa?em si?, ?e jak na AIPA b?dzie intensywniejsza. Jedno z moich ulubionych w tym gatunku.

Wojt0k (19) - Łódź, POLAND - NOV 29, 2014
Piwo klarowne, jasnomiedziane. Ładna duża drobnopęcherzykowa piana, oblepia fajnie szkło i pozostaje w trakcie picia. Chmielowy aromat o nie przesadzonej sile (jak na piwo masowo dostępne dla "zwykłych" klientów). Posmak goryczki jak jedzona surowa skórka od cytryny. Dość niskie wysycenie. Najczęściej pijane pirzezemnie AIPA.
