A really good beer, but bitterness stays in throat too long. Gonna try it again in month or two - maybe may throat will be in better condition.

Kormoran przyszedł i skopał craftom dupe! Doskonały aromat leśny połączony z tropikalnymi owocami. W smaku dobra słodowość, ale i wysoka goryczka zalegająca długo, w przyjemny sposób. Wysoka pijalność. Całkiem możliwe, że to najlepsze polskie IPA na tą chwilę.

the aroma of the beer is incredible, really. you can smell the whole mixture of citrus with spruce breaking through it as well. unfortunately the taste does not follow the aroma, but still pretty decent.

Butelka 0.5L. Pomaranczowe lekko opalizujace. Piana jasna, bujna, szybko opada. Aromat: slodkie owoce egzotyczne, moze troche cytrusow ale do tego wyczuwalne aromaty mysie, wilgoci, stechle.
Goryczka srednie grejfrutowo-trawiasta.
Jak na polskie IPA jest OK ale sa lepsze.

Tap at PiwPaw, Warsaw. This beer has improved. Recently joined top 5 Polish (IPA’s) in my opinion (together with Rowing Jack, Artezan IPA, Haust Red AIPA and Kuguar). Light amber a bit hazy color. Fruity aroma, citrusy, grapefruit aroma. Quite strong and long bitterness but ballanced by also significant sweetness. Lacking a bit of fruity taste. Overall good IPA.

Beautiful citrus hoppy aroma, hazy dark amber color and great dense frothy head, which doesn’t last long (though it stays on the sides of the glass), but looks great while it’s there. Bitter hops, some citrus and resin in the taste. Leaves nice feeling of bitterness around the mouth in a long finish. Great beer for hop lovers. Not as sweet as Atak Chmielu.

Very good American India Pale Ale, the hop aroma is very clear, american’s hops do their works well. Beer is slightly unclear, but very has very strong gentian.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great fruity aroma (5 different American hops were used). A little bit too much of hops sediment in the bottle - most likely coming from the dry hopping. There is nothing bad abouit it, however Browar Kormoran is not a craft brewery and could easily get rid of those. There is not too much of a yeast sediment though...
The color is great - not too reddish, not too amber, just there I would say (and yes, this is a very subjective matter). The head is short lasting but leaves nice trace over the glass.
In the taste I really lack the balance between the bitterness and malty. The IBU is on an impressively high level and maybe it would be more suitable if the brewere decided to mash in higher temperatures for longer to leave more non-fermentable sugar in the beer.
After taste is hops, hops, hops.
Definitely a beer for hop heads.
