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.

Aroma: orange, citruses, some alcohol, maybe flowers, some floral bits, Appearance: Long lasting head, color between orange and red, hazy Taste: very aggressive bitterness especially in the back of the tongue, just a little bit sweet but almost insensible in that matter. Palate: low carbonated, light-medium body, thin feel, long and very bitter finish (for me too long), warm in throat.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2014 Very aromatic, a little heavy in higher temeratures. Expressive bitternes and great sweet mango finish. Another decent product from the "Podróże Kormorana" collection. It’s good to have it from time to time.

Fruity, citrus and pine aroma. Well balanced taste, nice grapefruit bitterness. Another good beer from Podróże Kormorana series. Very good availabilty on Polish market makes it a good choice when you don’t have any well-stocked beer stores nearby.

Pierwszy plan gra chmiel, nuty żywiczne, kwiatowe, cytrusowe, owoce tropikalne. Kolor rubinowy, lekkie zmętnienie, piana dobra, ładnie oblepia szkło. W smaku niestety wybija się alkohol. Następnie kwiaty, żywica. Goryczka grejpfrutowa, średnia w kierunku dobrej. Wyczuwalne są też owoce, ziemistość. Odczucie w ustach przyjemne, goryczka nie zalega, wysycenie w porządku, pijalne piwo.
