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.

Silvan7 (852) - 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 (15009) - 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.

derBreslauer (142) - Wroclaw, POLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Nice amber colour. Hazy. Head is pretty and thick, persists very long. Beautiful fruity aroma. A little bit of citrus hops. In taste - strong bitterness is dominant but very enjoyable, which lasts for a long time. Average carbonation. Really great beer, but in a way, one-dimensional and predictable. But on the other hand, perfectly balanced.

bardzo dobre i tresciwe chmielne IPa po wlosku. Region w Toskanii slynie z win, ale to nie przeszkadza im w tworzeniu swietnych piw. To aromatyczne i metne IPA jest szalowe. Z cala masa kwiatowych smakow chmielnych. Piana solidna i mocna. Polecam poznanie Toskanii od tej strony piwnej

TommyFi (109) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 31, 2013
Colore arancio, schiuma ottima e persistente. Profumatissima al naso di pompelmo, buccia di limone. In bocca si ritrovano entrambi i sapori, finale amarognolo ma non troppo, corpo medio. Anche se a qualcuno può sembrare che l’estrema luppolatura copra parecchio il sapore della birra in sé, è comunque ottima.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 Bottle. Huge gusher. Pours burnt orange/mango juice. Dense. Huge fluffy white head. Nose and taste of peach, mango, sugary bread, papaya, sugared pink grapefruit rind and light caramel. Full bodied.

750 ml bottle poured a hazy gold with a small lingering off white head. Aromas of straw, citrus and yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, lemon zest, yeast and light spice with a crisp dry moderatly bitter lingering lemon zest finish.

Orangeish, yellow pour. Heavy on citrus with some floral notes, especially in the taste. A small amount of bitterness and a very unique malt flavor. Not my favorite, but relatively tasty.
