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.

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.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

Apple, citrus aroma.
Taste is floral/citris hop bitter over light fruit and yeast....a bit bready.
Slight peppery spicing.....saison-like.
