3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Huge two fingers of pure white head, sticky spotty lacing, clearer marigold hue. Hoppy with a little sweetness and a bit of citrus in the aroma. Fairly bland taste at first, but then provides a kick of spice and hop in the finish. Mostly sweet maltiness and the hop in the aroma kinda gets lost in the flavor. OK

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at Open Baladin Rome. Pours a clear gold with fine bubbles and white head. Light to medium body. Soft mouthfeel. Palealtoness flavors evenlyatched to mellow hop flavor and subtle hop bitterness. Late alcohol presence. Clean and nice. Resembles a strong pale ale should such a category exist.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
25cl bottle. Hazy brown with thin head. Nice aroma - tangy fruits and hops. Full body with good carbonation. Flavour malt with peppery spiciness. Plenty of pleasant hoppy bitterness in the long finish. Overall a very solid beer, although it reminds me more of a strong Belgian beer with extra hops, than an IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2010 Bevuta in bottiglietta da 0,25 all’Irish di Quinto; sigh era davvero troppo poca, è buonissima questa IPA con un mix di dolce-speziato tipico delle baladin e un amaro molto forte dovuto anche al dry hopping.
Visto che c’è la ricetta prima o poi provo a farmela a casa

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Poured a murky brown orange with a creamy off white head. Aroma is citrus and wheat. Taste is a bitter hops and wheat, not really a IPA in my mind. More of a wheat or witte.
