COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ferris (2946) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle - Flowery, mango hops on the nose. Clear copper with a thick rich head. A bit resinous and bitter up front with a long bitter finish. Hops are muted and tastes are a bit lost in the bitterness. Coming all the way from Italy this may be better fresh, but the nose is still pretty good.

daknole (8867) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Yellow pour with a crazy gigantic white head. This reminds me of a white beer mixed with a pale ale. It didn’t taste bad at all but I would hardly call it an IPA.

Kamol (17) - POLAND - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle. Aroma is full of citrus, a little bit of resin can be smelled too. This beer has very pleasant bitterness and generally is very drinkable due to its lightness. An IPA I’d love to drink everyday.

JDBaker11058 (1205) - Maryland, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Appearance: deep marmalade orange, with one finger of quickly fading bright white soapy head. Aroma: peach, mango, grapefruit, mineral water, fruitcake. Taste: tropical/herbal bitterness up front, with a caramel graham cracker malt base that tries to balance. Finish: very dry, with notes of stone fruit and slightly resinous hops lingering in a slick palate base. Notes: Perfectly acceptable IPA. In color and aroma in particular it reminded me of Bells Two-Hearted IPA, which is of course a good thing. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

Svesse (6042) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2013
(Bottle) Golden amber colour, slightly hazy, with lasting off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with apricots, honey, tropical fruit, marmalade and fresh floral hops. Fruity, malty taste with notes of citrus, apricots, pineapple, honey, grapefruit and fresh floral hops in a finish with a generous bitterness. Medium body, with a balanced sweetness. Fresh hops and a rounded malt character makes this quite tasty and well balanced. Very nice.

wxman (1389) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2013
On tap at Global Brew. Pours a cloudy yellow/gold and a nice white head with lace. Citrus and sour aroma. Sweet pale malt taste with bread dough, citrus and an assertive hop bite. Good.

Silvan7 (636) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 30, 2013
on tap @ La lanterna. Profumo luppolato, su tutti cascade. Di sicuro c’è del dry hopping. Non troppo intenso, ma stuzzicante anche il fruttato dolciastro, ricorda il melone e la frutta caramellata. Color rosso rubino opaca con schiuma bianca ampia e poco persistente. gusto luppolato, fresco e asciutto. qualche spezia che non riesco ad identificare con chiarezza. Molto invitante alla beva. Finale secco improvviso. Non molto corposa.

harrisoni (13217) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle from GBBF 2013 and drunk at home. A very aromatic IPA, distinctive, good mouthfeel definitely. It is like putting your face in a bag full of hop flavours. Having spent the morning shovelling Cascades, this does have that authentic hop flavour aroma. Just a delightful drinkable IPA. Not in your face hops, but not lacking in hop character either, bitter on the finish certainly. Enough malts to backbone the hops but never too sweet either. That’s a pretty tremendous IPA I would say.
