Una delle ultime creazioni nate nel Vecchio Birrificio: una birra decisamente bizzarra, che fin dal nome ricorda formule magiche (ricordate il Salagadula magibula bidibi bodibi bu di Cenerentola?) e pozioni... da favola! Caratteristica principale, il massiccio uso di luppoli con un cocktail di diverse varietà che da’ luogo a profumi straordinari e ad una carica di amaro davvero notevole, con ben 100 IBU.

tfredvik (1150) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2014
Cloudy medium amber body with an off-white head that laces the glass very well. Strong aroma of slightly overripe tropical fruits, especially peach and mango, backed up by caramel. So far this looks and smells very much like a double IPA. The flavour and taste however does not have the necessary punch to justify the DIPA classification. I’d say the bitterness is quite moderate, i.e. not as bitter as a powerful DIPA should be, and frankly I doubt that the IBU printed on the label is correct: this does not feel like 120 IBU at all. The sweetness is moderate to light, in other words not sweet enough to be able to mask 120 IBUs that efficiently. It’s a bit watery and the finish is rather short. Still, a very nice IPA that pretends to be a DIPA. And that name? Please? That must be stupid even in Italian.
[Sample from 75 cl bottle, Mystery Beer #3 @ Kaaz’ Ølsmaking på takterrassen]
