COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Una variazione della normale ReAle, i luppoli sono diversi soprattutto nella quantitŕ: elevatissima, ma quello che cambia maggiormente č la tecnica di utilizzo del luppolo. Tutto il luppolo viene utilizzato negli ultimi 10 minuti di bollitura, in una quantitŕ 3 volte superiore rispetto alla Re Ale. Il risultato č un’esplosione di profumi che vanno dall’agrumato al resinoso (resina di pino ed incenso). In bocca secca, immediatamente arriva l’amaro per poi lasciare il passo ad una bellissima nota di mandarino che rimane estremamente persistente. Crea assuefazione!

McWorta (825) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 20, 2015
Clear golden colour at first but becomes opalescent with a smooth pillowy white head and good lacings. Aromas of pine, tropical fruits like passion fruit are dominant but also some notes of caramel, hay and hints of resin are noticeable. Lightly effervescent with a light soft texture and a medium body. Some fruity caramel sweetness hits the palate at first which then builds into a well balanced fruity pine induced bitterness. Medium lasting finish. Harmonic and pretty quaffable.

MarcoDL (2585) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle. Golden color, white head. Aroma of hop, mandarine and passion fruit. Tastes fresh and bitter, with citrus, mandarine and bitter grassy hops. Bit flat unfortunately. High on the carbs. Decent beer.

TET (1938) - FINLAND - MAR 12, 2015
A hazy, slightly orange beer with a dense, medium and blond head. Aroma is strongly citrusfruity and also tropical. Grapefruits, mangos, some papaiyas and sweetness of fruit candies, also generic fruitness. Taste has fruits and mangos, medium bitterness is slightly piney and also slightly herbal in the end. Medium bodied, quite smooth carbonation. Tasteful, aromatic and easy IPA. Good beer.

Marko (4144) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 11, 2015
Thanks to Marin & Hrvoje for sharing this one at O’Hara! Poured a murky golden body with a thick white head. Really citric aroma, marmalade, slightly fishy, sweet, tangy, pungent. Tangerines. Birra del Borgo seems to be consistently very, very good in that aroma. Somewhat thinner, dry, just a tad tangy hoppy taste, lemon candy, light malty sweetness. Some tropical fruit. While not a stunner, this is a damn good IPA. Definitely not an APA, though the lack of immediate flashiness can make me understand why one would change that appellation (though I don’t agree). Good job!

Lore (1357) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 7, 2015
hazy orange colour, minimal off-white head; aroma of tangerine, passion fruit, some citruses, caramel and piney notes; taste of tangerine, passion fruit, pine, caramel notes and significant spiciness; excellent harmony of hops and malt; amazing IPA!

heman (137) - Tychy, POLAND - MAR 3, 2015
nalewa się ze średnią pianą, białą, ładnie zdobiącą szkło. Barwa to ciemne złoto, piwo jest wyraźnie mętne. Piwo sprawia wrażenie jakby tylko czekało na otwarcie i od razu atakuje nas cudownym zapachem. Mocny, intensywny aromat chmielowy obezwładnia. Dominują nuty cytrusów, takich słodkich, przejrzałych - mamy cytrynę, pomarańczę, mandarynki. W tle pojawia się również lekka nuta ananasa. Całość kojarzy się z owocowymi żelkami czy galaretką w cukrowej posypce. Po ogrzaniu pojawiają się subtelne nuty suszonych liści tytoniu. W smaku już od samego początku pojawia się goryczka, ale niska i stonowana, szybko przykrywana wyraźnymi słodami i kontrowana ich delikatną słodyczą. Pojawiają się nuty tytoniowe i żywiczne, a w tle muśnięcie cytrusów. Finisz to wyraźna, ale średnio wysoka goryczka. Piwo pozostawia lekko cierpki i cytrusowy posmak.
