In this 2011 version we have raised the bittering units to 75 and augmented our traditional use of daidai fruit with additions of Shizuoka-grown dekopon fruit. These fruit additions combine with several citrus-character hop varieties (Columbus, Motueka and NZ Cascade) to yield an uniquely fruity and refreshing India Pale Ale.

Bottle 66 cl bought @ bir&fud bottega (Rome, Italy). Pours an orange-rusty pale colour with almost no head at all. Aroma of citrus, lime, tropical fruits, pink grapefruit, young orange, white peach, a little chemical note and yeasty as well. Itís really particular, Medium carbonation in a little malty body, full of blood orange, orange peel and grapefruit, but nothing more. Good finish, intense citric like the flavor. A little boring and flat for me. Maybe deserve a fresher bottle? If this is the standard, well, doesnít worth the 66 cl format. Anyway, I have to admit, itís really different from classic IPA.

Draught at Q-Brick. Nice nose: citrus, menthol, licorice. Original and inviting. Deep amber with no head. Bitter, bitter flavor with light malt. A bit thin and light in body. Really huge bitterness, some of it obviously from the fruit. Really a bit too astringent.

Pacific Century pours a rich amber gold with a light white head. The aroma is fairly reserved for an IPA, but citrus, pine, and buttery hops make themselves apparent. The taste is bright and lively. The citrus blends in with the hops very well to create a refreshing, sweet, and bitter IPA. The mouthfeel is about as it should be, with light prickly carbonation. And itís not as heavy as Iíd expect for the ABV. Overall, this is a great and unique take on an IPA.
