4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is definitely the best Polish beer Iíve tasted so far, itís a shame itís the only AIPA brewed commercially in Poland at this moment. Brown color with a small yet very durable white head. Smell is pine, resin, citrus, light carmel, strawberries and a tropical mixture with maracuja, plus some creamy vanilla. Taste is expectedly very hopppy and fruity. Tropical fruits and strawberries upfront and piney-resin-citrusy bitterness in the back, quite intensive and long lasting. Some caramel, grain and herbs in the background. Low carbonation. Awesome.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2012 50cl bottle. Filtered, brown liquid with small to medium dirty head. Nose : tart with notes of alcohol, little coffee, strong pine and pomelo notes. Typical IPA for the moment. Nose : low to medium density with fluffy, creamy and a bit oily texture. The carbonation is fair but still carbonates in throat which is a downer. Sweet tart with pronounced pine, citrus zest, grapefruit juice aftertaste. Itís mild compared to some extreme IPA but is delicious and I understand why this is a flag polish modern brewing beer. Well done to my polish folks and extra points for that !

Red/amber in color. Citrus aromas (grapefruit, pineapple + resin). I think the color is one of the biggest advantages. Itís really intense red and looks great in a shaker glass. This is one of the best Polish AIPAís Iíve tried. The flavor could be better, though. I guess it hass to much melanoidin malts and tastes a bit too bready/caramel. Overall itís a very good beer and it looks awesome so if you have the chance - try it!

bottle, many thanks to Schroppfy! Hazy pale golden yellow, large white head. Lovely hoppy aroma, citrusy and resiny. Full-bodied, solid malty base complements the intensive citrus hops flavours with hints of resine and grass. Very well balanced, well crafted, smooth and delicious IPA. Superb stuff.
