It’s an IPA, India Pale Ale, amber colored and with a strong hoppy aroma.

A beer that’s been made for thirsty people, to be drank without too much thinking, to be enjoyed while strolling down the streets on warm evenings.

In brewing Hobo we used a big amount of rye (29 %) and 10 % wheat, plus five different kinds of malted barley. We decided to use hops from America and New Zealand: we used Nelson Sauvin during FWH and in whirlpooling, while in the next two additions we used Amarillo and Cascade.

Lijah (1) - California, USA - MAY 15, 2013 does not count
Bottle pour in tulip glass. Sweet, soft floral aroma. Dark caramel, reddish color, minimal head, cloudy. Not as thick as it looks, rather light body. Very light sweetness at first, and a noticeable but not so powerful hoppy bitterness left behind. Love the label design on the bottle

Bottle. Dark amber. Nose has amber caramel, and a really light fruity hoppyness. Some citrus, green currants, orange marmelade. Body is medium, soft, smooth. Has bitterness, and with the fullish body it feels almost silky. Lots of amber caramel.

Silvan7 (965) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 7, 2013
Bottle @ Jacaré . Profumi marcati, ma non intesni di luppolo. l’aroma piů intenso č erbaceo e lievemente floreale, schiuma poco persistente. colore ambrato di un bel torbido. In bolla la prima sensazione č quella del luppolo che predomina su tutto il resto, poi ci sono sentori di agrumi, un po’ citrici e il finale č estremamente astringente. poi l’impensabile. dopo 2 minuti chene bevi un sorso, senti che il tuo palato te ne chiede un latro sorso... l’ho letteralmente trangugiata.

jaghana (5091) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle 33cl from allen thanks. A cloudy amber red beer with low deep head. Nose is intense on modern hops on exotic fruits and orange. Aroma is on toasted malt, grainy, dry with bitterness and grapefruit, pineapple notes, lemon, grassy, bit astringent, light chocolate hints, finish is a bit malty and not too bitter. Ok beer, anyway a classic modern ipa.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Bottled 33cl. Interesting shape of the bottle. Surprisingly dark amber appearance with practically no head at all. Mango, white wine and caramel throughout. Strong bitterness. Raisins are quite present on the swallow. Very low carbonation. No lacework. Dry finish which is reminiscent of caramel and resiny hops. Not a fan of the malt back.
