Pours an amber orange with a white head and aroma of grapefruit and citrus. Taste is sweet, of hops, grapefruit, citrus, and pine with a heavy bitter, dry, hoppy finish. Very nice IPA, hoppy and bitter throughout.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355 ml can from BG Birra, served in a nonic half pint glass. Classic sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with a small, creamy, off-white head. On the nose old and stale hops, caramel malts, tea leaves, soap. Slightly citric and resiny in the far background. Not better in the mouth, malty, astringent, unpleasent sticky caramel. Moderate bitterness, soapy aftertaste. Very soft carbonation for the style, medium body and creamy texture. I donít even know why Iím reviewing a 17 months old IPA from over the pond. Why would you even sell it ? Damn, I hate how almost nobody care about hoppy beer freshness in Italy. Hope to re-rate it properly in the future.

Tapwerks, OKC. Draft, pours golden orange. Great foamy head that lasts. Aroma of peach apricot, not much pine. First sip refreshingly fruity, full mouth. Slightly bitter, stays. Easy drinking, but not complex.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a hazy light golden yellow body that gives a one finger white foamy head, the head dies after a minute and a half and thereís a fair amount of thick lacing clinging to the sides of the glass.
The smell had grapefruit flavored hops, light malts.
The taste had the grapefruit come back to add a piney punch assaulting my taste buds, no aftertaste, dry finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium, sessionable. Carbonation seems to be smoother than most AIPAís, but still good, not under-carbonated just good.
Overall, this is a pretty good AIPA that I would come back to.

12oz can. Pours a sparkling yellow color with foamy off-white head and average carbonation. Aroma is subtle floral hops. Flavor is completely bitter, no detectable malt presence. Not as good as I expected.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrus hop aroma with undertones of caramel and citrus peels. Somewhat muted. Grapefruit bitterness offset with smooth caramel and molasses. Hints of spices, oranges, toast and lemon peel. A bit grainy but with good balance. Fizzy but refreshing. Mild for an IPA but enjoyable. Definitely a stronger fruit character than expected.

Great West Coast style American IPA, light on malt, good firm bitterness, could use more crystal malt flavor to be perfect, but certainly a fine example.

Excellent IPA. Can't find the distinct hop that gives out the bitterness, but great mash up overall. Will drink again and again
