COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Una variazione della normale ReAle, i luppoli sono diversi soprattutto nella quantità: elevatissima, ma quello che cambia maggiormente è la tecnica di utilizzo del luppolo. Tutto il luppolo viene utilizzato negli ultimi 10 minuti di bollitura, in una quantità 3 volte superiore rispetto alla Re Ale. Il risultato è 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!

On tap. Now THIS is an IPA. All of the flavors that you are expecting from an IPA are here, but represented in a very complex way. The smells are amazing, and the journey from first sip to aftertaste is amazing.

Wolfbass (954) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 29, 2011
Il colore è un bell’ambrato intenso con bel cappello di schiuma aderente e persistente. Aroma decisamente tropicale, avvolgente, lungo che anche dopo le prime sorsate rimane meravigliosamente intatto e invitante. In bocca davvero equilibrata dove affiora leggero un sentore anche di caramello, tra lo splendido fruttato. Si termina con un bel erbaceo, che lascia dopo qualche secondo un bel amarognolo lungo.

Pours slightly hazy golden color with white head. Citrus fruit aroma with some breadiness. Grapefruit and orange flavor with some dough and caramel. Medium body with lively carbonation. Good but pricey.

OldGrowth (2867) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2011
pint at the Publick House Brookline, 07/08/11. Ok aroma, sweet. Little GF bite, but was more malty than I’m use to for an ipa. like a honey wheat bread scent. Clean brownish orange color, ok head and lace. Mild bitter flavor. Medium body, oily smooth mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Ok really mellow for an IPA. aroma marginnaly better than flavor. Just had to have an Italian ipa....

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a frothy off white head. The aroma is like in a west coast IPA, alot of grapefruit, some peach, mango, the sweeter citrus fruits like orange and tangerine and sweet malts. The flavor isn’t as hoppy as the aroma, but I get the grapefruit, tangerine, orange and peach along with a sweet malty backbone and some candy like sweetness. The body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty solid IPA!

DutchDrebus (4598) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
Very wonderfull and very nice IPA. The colour is just like it should be. It looks fresh, orange/gold, summer-like. The smell is very good. Very hoppy and fresh. I think it’s made of American hops. Bitter smell also. Taste is also very good. To me it could use a bit more grapefruit notes and a bit more bitterness.. but still. Great beer.

jcr (2286) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2011 Draft at The Heorot. Deep amber body with an off-white, frothy head. Aroma is sweet and malty with hints of orange and grapefruit. Caramel, citrus and peach. The flavor is moderately sweet and moderately bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture and moderate to lively carbonation. Orange and grapefruit, along with some resin, are more noticeable in the flavor than in the aroma. Smooth IPA, very quaffable. Could have been a bit more flavorful, but overall a nice IPA.

Colore rosso aranciato, nota di agrumi molto intensa, luppolatura decisa . Provata sia in bottiglia che alla spina...buona in entrambe le versioni.

Benzai (9781) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2011
Bottle shared at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Presentation of Italian beers from Borgo, Amarcord and Baladin (many thanks to Benito!). Best beer I had that evening. Great hoppy, grapefuit-like smell with some other fruit. Really good hoppy taste. Nice balance. Palate really good as well.

rodenbach99 (3493) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2011
Bouteille de 750ml bue en fin de soirée avec Patrick. Cette pale ale italienne est dorée, la mousse est très épaisse couvant l’entièreté de la bière, de plus elle est durable. Le nez offre un bel équilibre entre les houblons américains et le malt. La texture en bouche est incroyable, l’amertume est bien présente mais en aucun cas dérangeant. Les goûts de levure sont présents. Surprenante bière italienne.
