The aroma for this beer is truly a unique one. The predominant notes are the pink peppercorns, which present as an aroma reminiscent of a well made dinner. It pours a hazy straw yellow with a full white head. The hops come through in the flavor, with the spicy notes blending well with the pink peppercorns. Light and easy drinking on the palate. The biggest complaint I have is the price, at $11 a bottle, this can get a bit pricey.

33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Rome.
Pours cloudy yellow color with a large head. Herbal aroma, some peppery notes, citric fruit notes and some faint toffee. Spicy peppery flavor, not very strong though, lots of sweet fruits and some hops. Nice spicy brew.

33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Rome. Batch #50, 08/2016
Aroma has soapy apricot and mild spicy tones. Feels musty. Flavour has some peppery spices, mild chili burn, apricot and minerals. A bit messy but decent. Like a Belgian ale with spices.

lello4ever (196) - 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.

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 (7501) - 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 (328) - 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.

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.
