3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 750 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.4%
Orange colour on the body, a nit hazy, white coloured head, tall and thick, with very good retention and heavy lacing lefft on the glass.
Aroma of hops, caramel malts, some sugar, peaches, a bit lactic as well, lots of mandarines.
Taste has citrus, again lots of mandarines, some malty sweetness that lasts for a while before the hoppy bitterness kicks in. Not extremely bitter but the bitterness has a good duration.
Medium body, good carbonation, mildly dry palate.
Overall quite good, highly drinkable beer and an easy one too.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle from ArtigianBeer served in a pint glass. Light sunrise orange, pretty clear when carefully poured, with a nice and fluffy dirty white head. Good lacing retention. Powerful aroma of blood orange, citrusy hops, a nice bouquet of tropical fruits, resin and pine needles. The taste follow suit, nice explosion of bitterness, without being overwhelming, dry and citrusy forward aftertaste, quite long and satisfying. The malt backbone is there, in a tiny amount just as a support in balancing the different elements. Average carbonation, medium body and creamy texture. I’m sure a very fresh bottle (or even better a nice pint on tap/cask) could be mind blowing, but this is already very, very good!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 330ml bottle on 23/2/2014. Pours a murky dark golden with virtually no head. Has a very pleasant slightly spicy, fruity aroma. In the mouth, you get rye bread, citrus and stone fruit, caramel, nuts and spices. The bitterness is firm but not over the top. Has a medium body and quite lively carbonation. It’s by no means a typical IPA, but it’s a really lovely drop.

Extra luppolata e extra gustosa. Le note floreali e di frutta tropicale dei luppoli avvolgono la bocca, preparandola ad un incontro amaro inenso e appassionante che sfuma in sentori citrici. Mi inchino alla reale birra!
