3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(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.

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.
