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

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.

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.

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.

Patrickctenchi (3942) - 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.

piacevole sorpresa da questo birrificio,del quale avevo assaggiato solo qualcosa tempo fa e non mi aveva convinto molto..questa birra è davvero una IPA fatta bene! si presenta torbida,bionda e con schiuma a grana media e persistente..,la combinazione di luppoli è veramente uno spettacolo..floreale e resinosa ben bilanciata e comunque non aggressiva..gusto speciale,va giù molto bene e lascia un finale morbido (non secco)..da riprendere assolutamente! (pepe rosa?forse c’era ma non è predominante)

wyzzywyz22 (1996) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle from a random bar/restaurant, Roma. Hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Citrus, yeast and a little peppery spice in the beak. Decent grassy hop bitterness in the flavour in tandem with some spice, grapefruit and malty notes. Didn’t really pick up on the pepper aspect but its a tasty beer.

A drinkable beer. Never heard of Brazilian pink peppers but after drinking this I’m going to guess they are flavorless. This is a drinkable summer beer with not much flavor. Aroma was very weak. Slightly floral with a thin hop smell. Pour was a nice hazy medium gold with a perfect 1 finger white head. Taste was very light and mild. Nice balance between sweet malt and earthy hops. Very subdued flavor and creamy mouth feel. Light carbonation.

good balance, rich and flavorful - not to dominating on the nose - smell had some hints of yeast, very good

Dull tan, fairly rich head. Some citrus and papaya nose. Bitter, but with a touch of phenols, hints of yeast, and a basic character, yeast.
