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

lello4ever (112) - ITALY - MAR 5, 2015
Arancio chiaro, opaca e torbida. Schiuma leggera, splendido aroma floreale. Al palato molto equilibrata tra luppolo, poco forte, e malto. Molto amabile e per niente invasivo il sapore floreale. Molto leggera consistenza acquosa, beverina.

BOSSbrewer (2255) - Arkansas, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle at 28 Springs. Pours a very hazy yellow gold with two fingers of white head. Aroma has lots of peppercorns and some maltiness. Some citrus also. Body is full and creamy. Really nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (7363) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle, shared at game night with phantomhennes and heavylaevy and TvM. Cloudy medium gold with a huge white head that laces thickly. Pronounced floral peppercorn aroma, very aromatic! Yeasty, floral notes up front, cereal malts, bold peppercorn note in the finish with only a little heat. Medium bitterness. I don’t think this was meant to be classified as an IPA-- in this case, "IPA" stands for "Italian Pale Ale" as stated on the label. This beer is much closer to a saison in character. It was lovely, but very peppercorny!

sblsimone85 (327) - USA - DEC 9, 2014
Otima ipa dai sentori sapori pepati e molto floreali con note al naso mielose e luppolose, al gusto invece sempre risale il floreale e alcune note frutatte di frutti tropiucali.buona beverinità e un ottimo equilibrio.

Bill Becker (464) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 8, 2014
The pour is a hazy gold with an inch of foam. I get an interesting range of aromas. A kind of tropical fruitiness with mango being the most notable. Some pineapple as well. Pepper? I don’t exactly what pink pepper brings to the table. It doesn’t taste like it smells for the most part. The hop bitterness is on the harsh side. I get wee bits of the fruit and yes, there’s a peppery thing going on but the hop flavours need smoothing out. Mouthfeel is okay. Wow, if this tasted like it smelled, it would drink like a champion.

bigguns22 (720) - Maryland, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Pour is a hazy amber with a tall white head. Aroma is lite and fruity mostly tropical fruit. Medium body beer with lite citrus flavors and almost no bitterness.

SG111 (378) - New York, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottled. Appearance is hazy golden color. Aroma is hoppy and malty. Flavor is hoppy up front with a malty backbone. Distinct caramel sweetness. Not overpoweringly hoppy by any means. Maybe the pink peppercorn is adding a slight spice character but its subtle. Nice mouthfeel as well.

shrubber85 (8323) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle. Caramel malt, pepper, and orange peel aroma. Murky orange-brown with small head. LIghtly sweet caramel malt, moderately strong pepper and herbal flavor. Pretty funky.

Patrickctenchi (4449) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy, light orange/amber with a thick beige head. Apple, citrus aroma. Taste is floral/citris hop bitter over light fruit and yeast....a bit bready. Slight peppery spicing.....saison-like.
