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!

Incredible beer. Although the large amount of hops used, it’s balanced and very easy to drink !

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 20, 2011
750 ml bottle. A hazy pale amber beer, with a large, frothy, fully lasting white head. The aroma is lightly malty (cookies), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, pine needles, resin), with perhaps a note of tea. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, very long finish with moderate to heavy bitterness. Above the average in every department, even in the nose, that’s not as powerful as expected. Very juicy, citrusy and drinkable. Definately one of the best European IPAs.

wlajwl (4625) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Citrus, especially orange, yeast and hops with some caramel undertones in the aroma. The flavor is very caramel based mixed with citrus and hops. This ale is sorta of hard to define, its almost as if its a mixture of an IPA and a Belgian-style ale but sort of isn’t at the same time, it was good but not over the top great.

Cipressaia (53) - ITALY - SEP 13, 2011
Gran bel bouquet aromatico, in bocca perde un po’ risultando un po’ pastosa. E’ da un po’ che non la becco in forma come un tempo.

Pours deep gold into a tulip. White head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Resin and pine aromas. Dry with sweet, dry caramel upfront turning grapefruit in the medium length finish.

Chaseman (50) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 2, 2011
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 (981) - 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.
