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.

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.

Very dark amber. Caramel, sweet tropical fruits in aroma. Not intensive. In taste rather sweet, a lot of caramel. No biterness. Could be better

Ritzn (314) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2016
Hazy brown with little white head. Aroma is pine cone, a little apple, not very complex. Taste is medium bitterness, medium sweetness, medium sourness. Average I would say, nothing new here. Hoppy finish, overall ok.

SinH4 (2443) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle. Amber-orange color with white head. Aroma is butterscotch, fudge, caramel, grassy hops. Taste is a bit off, more butterscotch and fudge, grassy. Low carbonation. Not excellent, the hops are a bit too old.

Kolor bursztynowy. Drobno pęcherzykowa,szybko opadająca piana. Wyraźnie goryczkowy i cytrusowy smak, niezbyt pijalne i przyjemne dla mnie.

Świetne piwo, ładnie pachnie, ładnie wygląda. Poza tym butelka bardzo ciekawa. Smak jak najbardziej poprawny, tylko... Czegoś w nim brakuje. Owszem, jest owocowość, cytrusy, las... Ale no to jest takie jednostajne. A ja bym chciał, żeby coś więcej się działo. Więc jak najbardziej poprawne, ale... brakuje tego czegoś.
