DeliriumT (355) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2012
This beer pours a nice black colour with decent lasting white head. The aroma is fresh and full of resiny hops. The flavour is lightly burnt sugar with citrus bitterness. Very enjoyable Italian black IPA.

18/11/12 - 75cl bottle @ Horecaexpo (Gent) - BB: III/14 (2012-1286)

Clear dark amber to almost brown beer, small off-white irregular head, unstable. Aroma: lots of sweet sugary fruits, syrup, honey, sweet malts. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: some caramel, bit sweet, bitter hops, fruity, ripe peaches. Aftertaste: very bitter, dry, some grapefruit, lemon peel, little spicy, some alcohol coming through. Pretty good beer!

HopRedHead (344) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dark brown with full tan head and heavy lacing. Upfront aroma of citrus, pine needles and fruity Belgian esters. Taste is quite sweet - bready malts, Belgian notes and lots of citrus. Lots of flavour for such a low percentage beer. Lingering citric bitterness. Really solid drop.

Buongiorgio00 (757) - - JAN 6, 2014
Un gusto veramente elegante, con il tostato e l’amaro perfettamente bilanciati che ne fanno un gioiellino tra le black ipa italiane. Risulta piacevole da bere e ad ogni gusto si apprezza la nota erbacea molto particolare del luppolo e l’impatto leggero del caffé.

Maris (983) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 24/6/2014. Pours a clear dark amber with a small head. The nose features a combo of fruity hops with some mild roasty notes. The flavour follows suit with some moderate roasty and chocolate malt set off against some sweet fruit and a firm, satisfying hop kick Has a medium body and fizzy carbonation. A very solid, enjoyable black IPA from a consistently good brewer.

marcot (771) - Campomorone, ITALY - APR 7, 2011
Alla spina a Selezione Birra 2011, Rimini. Non la ricordavo così scura da essere considerata black IPA, ben luppolata e molto resinosa invece si. Il Simcoe è un luppolo molto interessante

# 3047 ersma: auch in einem typischen weinland wie italien macht die kleinbrauerei-bewegung große fortschritte. birra del borgo gehört da schon zu den etablierteren, seit 2005 wird gebraut. „cascadian dark ale“ heißt es im untertitel, was uns einen hinweis auf den verwendeten hopfen geben könnte. oder auf gushing. dunkel rubinfarben bis bräunlich steht es da, gekrönt von einem beigfarbigem schaumberg, der sich sehr stabil gibt. intensiv fruchtig-grasiger geruch mit etwas säure. zitrus, grapefruit und passionsfrucht sind deutlich. der antrunk ist bitter und fruchtig. auch hier grapefruit und passionsfrucht sowie herbe kräuter. dazu aber auch leicht süße akzente, die zur mitte hin klarer hervortreten, obwohl die herbe und bitterkeit noch stärker wird. schmeckt auf jeden fall nach mehr als den angegebenen 55 ibu. der abgang ist leicht abnehmend bitter, die herbe bleibt aber bestehen. hier tritt die süße erwas deutlicher hervor, im späten abgang wirkt sie mit einem hauch karamell schon fast versöhnlich. langer nachhall. die hauseigene 0.75-l-flasche mit reliefprägung ist der hammer. fazit: unglaublich fruchtig. dank der schwebenden süße wirkt es nicht übertrieben ipa-ig sondern kommt sehr ausgewogen rüber, wenngleich auch akzentuiert bitter. unbedingt probierenswert. 14,12,12,12,15,12 12,35 27/4/
