From Birra Amiata, one of Italy’s most creative craft brewers, comes this marvelous Italian take on the India Pale Ale style. A delicately hopped nose marries perfectly with an assertively hopped malt character to give a beer that is full-bodied with a clean, bright finish. Re-fermened in the bottle.

Bevuta a Roma il colore è arancio medio, ha una schiuma ottima e persistente. Al naso sento pompelmo, limone. In bocca i sapori sono confermati. Il finale amarognolo ma non troppo, corpo medio. Molto buona

Colore giallo chiaro, molto torbida, schiuma pannosa. Aroma agrumato, bene al palato con una discreta pulizia e amarezza. Alcol si percepisce solo dopo qualche sorso.

Bottle. Moderate aromas all around, with roasted for the malt, perfume and orange peel for the hops, soap for the yeast, and pineapple, licorice and medicine in the background. Head is large, frothy, white with some slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is muddy amber/tan. Flavor starts moderately acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a lively to fizzy carbonation. some nice aromas with diverse flavors make this and unusual and interesting IPA.

Mortlach (1454) - Rome, ITALY - APR 3, 2015
On tap @La Tana (Rome). Unclear pale golden with a light white foam. Aroma is fruity, peach, orange, lemon, citrus notes, some malt. Flavour is citrus, malt, fruits, medium bitterness, clean and fresh. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nice one, but nothing special.
