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.

On tap. Cloudy golden with a frothy off white head. Cites, floral and pine. Tastes follow with a lighter sweetness to balance the bitterness.

From a bottle, A nice golden body which was mostly clear but grew cloudy when the yeast was disturbed on the bottom. A nice aroma of bread and grass hops. Some nice bitter hops balanced it out. A nice hop presence, similar in my opinion to an esb. Flavor was well balanced, good malts slightly sweet but mostly bread/cereal. Nice hop bitterness. A nice crisp finish. Would make a great session beer.

Draft at Alla Spina. Pours a cloudy gold with average white head. Aroma of pennies and apples. Taste of apple juice and sunflower seeds, average body. I did not care for this.

DavidWoodruff (387) - Windsor, California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Dark gold with an orange tinge and white head. Aroma is citrus, mostly lemon with a little dusty old attic thrown in. Flavor is a great balance of malt and hops with a bitter finish which is less than aggressive. Overall a very good example of an APA, but a bit pricey.

Maybe old bottle, not a bad price considerign other italian ipas go for the same price but for way less. THsi was a 750. It is decent but not super hoppy.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is citrus, floral hops, bready malts and lightly grassy. The flavor has orange citrus, toasted bread, grassy, and mild earth.

This beer is basically an IPA. If you like Sweetwater IPA this is almost the exact same beer. Slightly darker than sweetwater IPA and hoppier. I am going to try and find this and compare the two because I swear it cam out of the same building. :)

TEJA (1215) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2012
Big pressure. Big fluffy lasting head. Clowdy golden color. Big piny citrus hop aroma. Big hop taste and fine sparkle and smooth maltiness. Big body and firm but not over powering bitterness.
