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

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)

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.

Bottle on 06/30/2011 courtesy of Sean. Cloudy orange body with a small frothy white head. Sweet floral and yeasty aroma. Somewhat phenolic clove and floral hop flavor. Medium body with moderately high carbonation.

Personalmente non mi ha colpito molto. Il sentore luppolato tipico dell’ipa è quasi completamente cancellato dalle note di limone e, ovviamente, di pepe che rendono questa india pale ale italiana al pepe rosa un esperimento interessante, ma non del tutto riuscito.

33cl bottle @ Il Pretesto, Bologna. BB 05/2015. Dorée-orangée, col blanc cassé. Arôme offre un bouquet intense et subtil de poivre rose couplé aux effluves des houblons fruités et tropicaux. Malt reste modéré et en retrait. Palais est agrémenté de ce profil poivré qui est du plus belle effet. Je commence à être convaincu que les italiens maîtrisent vraiment cet ajout poivré dans leurs bières. Profil est épais, pâle cara avec pas mal de belles notes venant des houblons. Le Nelson reste en retrait mais le combo , épicé-fruité sur une touche amérisante est parfait. Le poivre contribue à éveiller la fin de bouche en donnant juste cette note chauffante du poivre.

TBone (12440) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Hazy yellow-orange color, steady off-white head. Aroma of pineapple juice. Medium-bodied. Sweet and fruity - yes pineapple - flavor. Can’t trace pepper, just some woody notes. Light lingering bitterness with fruity sweetness in the aftertaste. Drinkable.
