COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IBU: 62,5
OG: 1057
Color SRM 12,90

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.

Bottled (thanks Bov!). Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, bready and mildly toffeeish with some herbal notes. Flavour is sweet malts, some toffee and quite strong fruity and floral notes. As it gets warmer it gets a bit dull. (Score given from when it was cold).

Bottled, thanks Bov! Cloudy dark amber, rich lively head. Citric piney yeasty nose. Mid sweet with heavy carbonation. Mediun bodied with clean, spritzy mouthfeel. Caramel and lemon washing up liquid. Some lactic acid in a mildy resiny finish. Fresh sample, probably suffering from a light infection.

Bottle in Genoa, purchased from a small curio shop in the Genoa old town. Light haze on this amber beer. Big creamy pale tan head. Light palate, a little soft. Nice malts here, smooth caramel toffee. Hops seem to have gone walkabout though! Where is the claimed Nelson Sauvin and Amarillo? Just a trace of fruit buried in the semi dry finish. Could easily pass as a Scotch Ale rather than an IPA as claimed on the bottle!

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.
Nice.

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.
