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.

jredmond (5553) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Draft at Alla Spina with Mr. PJs. Pours a clear amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is weird hoppy dishwater. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with notes of bitter hop, maybe some pine but very faint. Ok, tastes closer to a pilsner.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle. Hazy golden body, light copper highlights. Frothy white head, diminishing. Hop aroma of flowers, perfume, citrus. Notes of toasted grain, herbs. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. More delicate and flavorful than American IPAs. And more complex. Restrained bitterness allows tastes of toasted grain, apricot, pineapple and tropical fruit stay on the tongue into the finish. Clean malts. Taste of bitter tropical fruit lingers.

Prufrockstar (1089) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle. Aroma is floral, perfume, a little earthy. Pours hazy amber, minimal head. Taste is surprisingly sweet, with stale hops, caramel, and a lot of flower and ripe fruit. Appropriate level of bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Marstonlad (452) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2013
Draught at Viisi Penniä, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a little white head. Aroma has strong exotic, tropical fruitiness, peach and apricot more than citrus. Taste is light sweet at first, then moderately bitter, crisp and fruity. Exotic fruity notes dominate and are actually pretty strong for an IPA. No cat’s piss or alcohol. Palate is smooth, medium to full bodied and sticky. Very enjoyable, richly fruity IPA.

jhamp9 (1110) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Slightly hazy golden orange with a giant white head that eventually fades down to a film. Nice lacing and a lot of tiny bubbles in the glass. Really nice sweet citrusy aroma with a lot of grapefruit and orange. There’s also an earthy character to it. Taste is mostly citrus rind, a little herbal and earthy. Bitterness lasts. Dry on the palate. Crisp.

Draught @ Viisi Penniä, Helsinki

Pours golden orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of zesty fruits, citrus, lemon and grassy hops. Taste is juicy and fruity with some citrusy notes. Finish is fruity and slightly bitter with some juicy notes. Quite juicy, not that bitter IPA.

Draught at the Viisi Penniä, Helsinki, Finland. Cloudy amber colour with a tiny white head. Nice hoppy aroma with some piney and fruity notes, moderate bitterness and some caramel sweetness.

On tap. Yellowish hazy. Very new world hoppy nose- grapefruit, exotics, pine. Body is light medium, very bitter. Caramel flavours and grassy hops, yeasty residue. Nice nose, but a bit too bitter and grassy body for my palate.
