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.

figas (9) - - JAN 23, 2015 does not count
Doskonała piana, drobna i pięknie koronkuje. W pierwszym momencie aromat był super: owoce, mango, pomarańcza, ale po 10 min doszedł zapach sera. Goryczka przyjemna, mocna, ale na pewno nie 120 IBU. Smak podobny jak zapach.

CacheManyHose (600) - HONG KONG - NOV 1, 2014
From Craftissimo. Cloudy (so muddy it's opaque) orange-brown with yeasty sudsy off-white head and legs. Smells of heavy wet malt, some fruitcake/sweet spiced bread, butterscotch, pear and other overripe fruits, quite a concentrated aroma. Tastes of malt but accompanied by a lot of bitterness, a little sour and musty. Has the heavy malt and hop flavour of some New Zealand IPAs but less fresh-tasting and more musty and sweet, esp. in the nose. Body is thin to medium, a little fizzy and frothy, spicy bitter finish. Solid relatively malty IPA that's less creamy/crisp in palate than other Birra del Borgo beers I've tried.

HKdIPA (690) - HONG KONG - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Hazy/opaque dark amber pour. Hoppy - pine and fruit - biscuity aroma. Taste is similar - big bitter hops with healthy malt background. Very bitter finish. Much more traditional flavor profile than other Borgo beers - really good IPA. Big flavor, very bitter, but balanced. Yum.
