IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAY 2, 2012
Ottima!! Aroma luppolato e un pÚ speziato ( ma va cíŤ il pepe!!). Il gusto Ť dominato dai luppoli e da un sentore di pompelmo rosa che scompare nellí "intermezzo" caratterizzato da un pÚ di pepe pungente per poi ricomparire successivamente. Resta comunque estremamente bilanciata, mai troppo amara. A sorso gia deglutito compare un taglio un pÚ teutonico. (Hallertau??).

Bottle sample at a tasting at Daganís place. Thanks troubles. Cloudy pale golden with a frothy white head. Raspberry and pepper nose, nice and aromatic. Bitter taste, a little dry with pepper finish. Light body and fun.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Daganís place. Thanks troubles. Hazy golden with a white head. Hoppy aroma, floral and a bit fruity. Hoppy flavor with some flowers, fruits, a bit of yeast, light sweetness and a bitter and somewhat spicy finish. Enjoyable.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2012
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como
Cloudy blond color, with very large head, and nice lace. Aroma of common beer, maybe boring, with light pepper touch, evident, soapy too; later, some noble hop appears. Dry mouthfeel, spicy malt flavor, coriander, with a nice peppery note. Unfortunately itís not fruity, but the pink pepper is a good idea.

sepia5 (237) - Connecticut, USA - APR 19, 2012
Pours a vibrant orange with a fair, fizzy white head. The nose is nice--mostly--hops and grapefruit. The flavor initially strikes me as somewhat floral or even herbal, but this beer seems to have a slightly off aftertaste. The flavor profile is just too thin for my taste. There is definitely something different about this beer that I just canít put my finger on, presumably from the peppercorn. I like this beer (is it truly an IPA, or a pale ale labeled as an IPA that uses a play on words ("Italian Pale Ale")), but Iím not awestruck.

PhillyCraft (3309) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2012
Bottle with Mike, poured a glowing golden color, mountain sized head, thick bright white lacing. Aromas of spicy yeast, flowers, biscuity malts, nelson hops, peppers. Taste is woody, filled with delicious peppers, grains, rye malts, spicy yeast, christmas tree, and cedar in the finish. Full flavored, long lasting in the mouth. I loved this ipa from paisanoís at Almond.

CaribouBill (3) - caribou, Maine, USA - APR 5, 2012 does not count
Another excellent beer from Italy. The peppercorns give it just enough íheatí to be different without overpowering it. Hoppy and crisp with a floral quality that improves as it warms in the glass.

Bottle. Pours orange with a white head.Peppery and flowery hoppy aroma. The flavor has some definite zing, with pepper, flowery hops, and some light fruity sweetness. Pretty good.
