Found this randomly at an Italian restaurant in NYC and was pleasantly surprised. Bottle is very unique and I got a couple of quizzical looks from coworkers...but overall a very good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Non male ma neanche travolgente, buona schiuma e aspetto, ma nulla in più che laschi traccia nella mia memoria sensoriale

VonClausewitz (132) - Italy, ITALY - SEP 10, 2012
una delle migliori IPA italiane.....naso affascinante, con passion fruit, scorza d’arancia, miele..... Secca, medio corpo, giustamente amara........finale lungo e pulitissimo leggermente speziato....buona buona.....

bp (802) - Queens, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle: pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a big frothy white head, aroma is peppery and yeasty, taste is grainy, hoppy, but also very dry which kind of takes away from any real flavor in the finish.

bytemesis (3318) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber-orange with a large foamy creamy head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, peach, citrus, flowery. Flavor is strong caramel and bready malt, medium sweet with notes of flowery and herbal hops, slight peppery notes as well, but very subdued. Finish is lightly bitter and peppery.

Bottle, as pictured. Not sure where it was purchased, I got it as a gift. Wasn’t a bad beer, but nothing great, and unlike most IPAs I’ve had. Poured a golden brown with a slight pink hue. Tasted more like a Belgian of some sort than an IPA that I’m used to. Not a ton of hops in it, pretty sweet, a little bit of fruit.
