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.

Aroma is citrus/orange, yeast, spices and a small hint of sweetness. The flavor is citrus, biscuit malts, fruit/tropical fruit and a mix of earthiness and tartness in the finish. Somewhat had a bitter mixed with IPA profile, pretty good.

Tap. Pours hazy amber with a large off-white head, creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, yeast, caramel, floral, honey. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, lightly bitter. Medium body, creamy, interesting take on the style actually.

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2013
Draft at The Birch. Pretty, dense white head atop a cloudy amber body. Aroma is alive with floral hops, citrus fruit and hints of cat pee. Taste is bitter hops but not overdone. Lots of citrus, tropical fruit, floral hops and sweet malt notes. Body is medium and slightly sticky with a creamy dense carbonation. Ends with more ripe citrus fruit notes, sweet malt, floral hops, pineapple and wet hops.

crazyvin (1900) - New York, USA - MAR 4, 2013
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 (390) - 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.
