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.

mkel07 (5221) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2012
750ml bottle from Archive. Pours a dark coppery red colour with a big rocky foam. Awesome hop aromas are very good, fall and piney. Strong flavour which is very intense. Full body ad strong aftertaste.

drjoeng (935) - SINGAPORE - JAN 10, 2016
7.1%ABV. IPA. Poured out a brown Amber. 16ºSRM. Nose has some nice pine, orange, tangerine sweetness but with a lemon tartness. Mouthfeel is soapy. There are full-bodied roasted malt flavors of caramel, toffee, and a wonderful creme brulee sweet richness, this is accentuated by some nice vanilla hints. There is a beautifully rich sticky date pudding sweetness. There is marmalade palate with bitter, sweet, tangy and even the briefly alcholic tang of a wonderful Orange marmalade that I had made in Tasmania. There is also the palate of a single malt whisky with a slightly cloying mouthfeel, then a subtle smoky sweetness then it’s all in the back of throat and nose.Nutty and sweet like freshly roasted chestnuts. The hop ride is bitter up front with a resinous hyssop like body, then sliding into bitter slightly herbaceous haze. Finish is short medium and has the aftertaste of a macadamia chocolate chip cookie. Goes on Favorites List! All times favorites list!! A real sleeper hit because I came at this one with zero expectations.

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.
