3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep honey brown with some orange hints, with a massive, massive tall soft fluffy ca. Giant bubble creators are forming on top as I wait forever for the cap to settle down. The aroma is SOFT!! lemon, diluted fresh cut pine, mild spice and other stuff round out the aroma. Nice beer, easy to drink not to intense, nothing wacky, just a clean by the books IPA. Lemon, sweet malts, lingering bitter, soft spice.......Why does this bottle look so small. Lots of dirt in the aftertaste. I like this completely average IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml brown bottle. Amber-deep gold colour, light haze. Creamy and airy beige foam that sticks around for a long time, lacing everywhere. Nose has grapefruit and oranges, zesty. Some nice contrasting caramel malt behind. In the mouth the beer has light citrus up front, some grains, a little caramel. Decent grapefruit aftertaste, some light earth sneaks in there as well. Mild carbonation, lightish body, goes down easily, overall a nicely hopped amber.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Somehow this bottle actually contained 330ml. Poured out a very dark amber brew, hazy to boot. I had to pour it in 3 parts as the crown created is neverending. It also stays forever. Solid yellow thinking citrus aroma backed by a mellow and sweet caramel. now that it’s opened up there’s some peach, mild evergreen that on that warner side can almost go unnoticed. There is also a small fragrant perfumey note tied into a faint spice. This game 3 of the flyers/pens rules. Best entertaining hockey in a while. Good fruity citrus flavour, pine, weird something that owns the middle, peach, grapefruit + bitterness, caramel, something else but I ran out of beer. Early on the carbonation was too high. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle pours a hazy amber color with a huge off-white head that settles slowly to reveal a nice array of lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus with hints of caramel and light toasted grains. Taste is citrus and earthy hop bitterness with an underlying malty sweetness. Medium bodied with some decent carbonation and decently balanced flavors. Overall, quite a decent IPA which I enjoyed sampling.

2013-06-24, draught at La Bossette, Lausanne, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Dark amber color, hazy, with small head. Nice, mild aroma of caramel and hop. Good caramel flavor, very moderate sweetness, quite good hopping, some resins and some fruits; balanced.
2012-04-04, bottle at Lortica, Bologna, bb 2012-10-15, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Hazy dark amber color, with creamy head, beige. Aroma of malt, hop, puke, yeast. Caramel flavor, with decent hopping level, mild hop resins, very light piney touch, and long final.
Now labeled as IPA, this is still an hopped Amber Ale, drinkable but not exciting.

Buona birra, forse un pò canonica, non colpisce ma non si può certe dire che non sia fatta a dovere.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Selezione Birra 2012, Rimini. Pours amber with a nice white head. Aroma is hoppy with peach and pineapple, lots of it. Taste is fruity again with a nice amount of bitterness. Very similar to an IPA in style. Good carbonation. Never had so much pineapple note, not even in IPAs. This one was delicious.

.Equilibrata, luppolata in bocca, leggermente fruttata, finale amaro. Ipa molto classica e pulita ma manca il colpo di genio. Comunque gradevole.
