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.

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.

Aromat: cytrusowy, słodkie owoce egzotyczne. Barwa: pomarańczowa, lekko mętne. Piana: średnio-obfita. Wysycenie: średnie. W samku sporo słodyczy podszytej owocami tropikalnymi, na kontrze średnia goryczka. Dobre piwo posiadające fajny aromat, jednak przydałoby się zmniejszyć trochę słodowość i dorzucić więcej chmielu na goryczkę.

Rich aroma of pine and citrus. Nice, attracive appearance with thick head. Colour: amber. Bitter in taste, almost makes you shiver with every sip. If you enjoy IPA, lay your hands on that beer next time you choose your pint.

The smell of feel from a distance meter from the glass. Amber and cloudy. Foam minor. Nicely maintained. Smell of grapefruit, citrus, sweet orange, curacao. The taste is slightly sweetish. Refreshing, bitterness is long but not large. Slightly grapefruit taste but dimly. Saturation average. Good beer with beautiful aroma. Taste is not so great as aroma but this product is quite good for hot summer nights.

Michcio (44) - Gdansk, POLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Barwa bursztynowa, zmętniona. Bardzo dobry aromat tropikalnych owoców, głównie cytrusy, mango, trochę ziołowych akcentów. Goryczka dość wysoka, świetnie zbalansowana słodowością, wysycenie na odpowiednim poziomie. Bardzo miło się pije.

Piana drobno pęcherzykowa, znaczy szkło. Kolor miedziany, nie jest przejrzyste.W piwie można zauważyć jakieś drobinki prawdopodobnie pozostałości po chmieleniu na zimno ale to nie jest duża wada. Aromaty cytrusowe. Goryczka wysoka ale bardzo przyjemna. Wysycenie średnie.

Lebo88 (110) - POLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle 500 ml. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits (mango), some floral notes; very dense and pleasant. The taste is quite strong like the aroma, with high bitterness. Adequate carbonation, some citrus/grapefruit aftertaste, lasts a long time.
