Moderate amber color, fraught and with a resistant head. Nice bubbly aspcet. Vinous and malty notes, little cereals and alcoholic tip. Round and lively taste, much equilibrate bitter content with a little acidulous tip on the end. Unusual IPA

Pours an orange colour with a frothy white head. Aroma is orange, caramel, fruit and hops. Taste is also fruity with caramel and orange notes leading to a moderate bitey bitter finish. Nice soft mouthfeel. Pretty decent but not spectacular.

Clear gold with a tight stable head. Light aroma of hops and caramel, but not very distinct. Soft bitterness developing into some sweetness later on. "hot" palate

Hazy gold beer with a lot of trapped carbonation swirling around. Little white head. Light soft and dry palate. Light malt - a little creamy. A hint of saison character. Sweet orange and then bitter hops. Finishes soft with light creamy malt. Like a light saison/ipa hybrid! Typically Italian eclectic!

Free sample served at a beer tasting session at the Stratfort shopping mole. A deep golden body with a decent white head. Aroma is nice and light fruity with spices. Flavor is fruity, delicate spicy, grainy, yeast and very refreshing. There is a delicate bitterness here, but not IPA type, more like a hoppy Saison. Medium body and a spicy aftertaste. A bit unusually and definitively very nice.

Bottle at Beer Bistro. Comes on like an IPA, and then resolves into malt and a yeasty finish. More like a Belgian IPA. Orange flavours-Simcoe hops is a guess. Good drinkability, though not exceptional nor worth $35 plus tax and tip for 250 ml.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Awesome inscribed 25cl bottle from Le Langhe, York. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. A Belgian tripel aroma of candy sugar, caramel and alcohol with a fruity, berry character also. Quite an astringent and bitter flavour upfront of juniper berries, grass, alcohol and an earthy mushroom finish. Some biscuity malt also. Moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Definitely not what I was expecting from an IPA. I agree with Dan, this drinks more like a hoppy Belgian ale. I like it.

Bottle 25cl, a cloudy amber beer. Nose is spicy, aroma is astringent, near a triple beer, fruity and hopy, very yeasty and ester notes, unbalanced and not so drinkable, grapefruit notes, quite sweet. Is that an IPA ??

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
100ml, draught at Open Baladin. Nice white tophead, slowly fading over an amber coloured body. Malt-fruity nose, with hints of lactose. Fruity hops in flavour again with hints lactose and added by grainy malts. Distant bitter ending. Medium bodied. Pleasing, however, a rather unusual IPA (Roma, 31.03.2012).
