3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nebuloso color arancio carico con uno strato non molto spesso di schiuma biancastra mediamente persistente. Sentori di luppolo e frutti esotici su una base caramellata e leggermente resinosa, quasi burrosa; gusto rotondo, mediamente amaro con deboli note fruttate e zuccherate e un finale forte e deciso in cui spadroneggiano luppoli tipicamente americani. Corpo medio, effervescenza gentile, beverina e con un abv ben celato; perde le sfumature dolciastro-acidule tipiche della Super classica ma guadagna punti con la luppolatura.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml purchased at Open Baladin Roma in Rome, Italy.
Pours a cloudy copper color with dark golden orange edges and a two finger, frothy off-white head. Great retention only slowly fading into a thick, lasting ring. Chunks of soapy lacing left behind.
Slightly earthy aroma with grassy, floral hops, subtle citrus and sweet malt. Some pine and grass along with faint grapefruit before the strong malt presence comes in with caramel, toffee and biscuit.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a balance of dry, earthy hops, sweet malt and boozy heat. Dry bitterness up front with some grassy pine followed by caramel, toffee, nut and biscuit. Boozy heat toward the finish which is pretty dry. Too malt forward and boozy for my liking. Also needs more complex hop flavor. Maybe some sweetness.
