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.

Niestety drogie to piwo, ale całkiem smaczne. Fajne brzoskwinki w zapachu i smaku, ładnie komponują się z przyjemną goryczką. Miałem ochotę na drugie, ale budżet mnie ogranicza.

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.

Karmel, żywica, cytrusy w zapachu. Trochę zbyt ciemny kolor,piękna piana. Żywiczno cytrusowe smaki przełamane sporą goryczką i karmelowymi posmakami. Są lepsze IPA,niemniej pije sie bardzo przyjemnie.

esox (1029) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Bottled. Slightly hazy amber color, creamy and lacy head. Ripe fruity hop upfront, mango citrusfruits, other sweet fruit nectars and floral notes. Really nice, strudy but dry malt flavor, minor biscuit notes and medium dark caramel. Lots of fruity hop flavors. Soft hop bite at first, intensifying towards the finish. Sticky resins and citrus peel flavors. Creamy caramel and well balanced bitterness in the late finish. Medium body, smooth and velvety texture. Really nice IPA.

beer_est_deus (638) - örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2014
Lätt dimmig, bärnstens färgad med ett stort orange skum. Doft: Humle, barr, honung. Smak: Humle, barr, grape, starkt svart te. Mycket färsk humle smak med bra beska, saknar dock lite kropp.

It’s so fruity and hoppy in aroma. Has lots of red grapefruit, tropical fruits like mango and hops in aroma. It’s hazy, amber color with great head and massive lacing. In taste it has awesome bitterness perfectly moderated by fruity sweetness. Great beer!

Arczir (124) - POLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Huge citrus aroma combined with red fruits, hoppiness and sweet, sweet caramel. Remembers me of overly ripe strawberries, has some citrus freshness beforehand though.
Appears reddish, unclear amber with good head, oily and slick. Tastes sweet. Really sweet, then comes the good, very solid bitterness and fruity flavour mildly suggested by the aroma. Palate is pretty smooth with pleasant bitterness and long, sweet aftertaste. Sweetness implies it’s rather east-coast AIPA and it’s definitely good. I really enjoyed it.
