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.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2009 With Chinook, Cascade, Amarillo

2009-03-22, draught at IBF 2009, Milan, 8-5-7-3-15=38
Hazy amber color; huge creamy head. Very nice fruity hop (mango and apricot). Medium body, some sweetness, malt flavor, a bit dry at the end, and light vegetables touch.

2009-03-21, draught at IBF 2009, Milan, 8-5-7-3-15=38
Hazy amber color; big head. Very good hop aroma, with mango and light oranges. Malt and caramel flavor, getting weaker and drier at the end. Good.

2008-03-28, draught at Salone della Birra Artigianale e di Qualità 2008, Milan, 7-5-7-5-15=39
With Chinook and Amarillo hops

Cloudy golden color; big head. It has a very nice hoppy aroma, not fruity, but with leaves and a lot of resins, delicate. The body is average, less strong than expected, with good caramel and toffee flavor, but getting drier at the end, probably for the strong hop resins, giving a late light astringency too. Very long final of American hops. I’m missing some body and malt here, but good hop, almost honeyish. Very pleasant.

harrisoni (13793) - 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.
