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!

Fatehunter (1526) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Into a tall glass. Three fingers of head, big and frothy. A hazy, dark straw colored body. Smells like lemon and pine, and a floral note. Which was a nice surprise. A solid malty taste, toned down pine bitterness. Tasty. Silky texture, moderate carbonation with a fizz. This is a good beer. For an American IPA it does not have the characteristic bitterness, or maybe I’m used to higher IBU for IPAs. In any case, it’s still enjoyable.

Good beer, but nothing of special. Not so flavored, but with a good mouthfeel. Good bitterness not so long at the end. Nice drink.

lello4ever (196) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Avevo già provato la re ale e ne ero stato molto soddisfatto. questa extra di Birra del Borgo è davvero un piccolo capolavoro. Una ipa da bere a litri. Bionda con un deciso aroma floreale ed erbaceo. Frizzantina e luppolata senza strafare.

Saeglopur (714) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 5, 2015
330 ml bottle from Ammersin Centerstore, Vienna.
Amber, hazy body, with a big, creamy, lacing, white head.
Aroma of citrus, sweet berries, peach, tropical fruits, biscuit.
Tastes of grapefruit, peach, orange, pine, some tropical fruits, biscuit, some candy.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes bitter, with lemon zest, pine, sweet malts.

Very nice. Pretty sweet, with lots of sweet fruits and malts, but also well balanced, so that it is very drinkable. Nothing outstanding overall, but a tasty, classic example of a modern IPA nonetheless.

Aroma has grapefruit, gooseberry bush, orange and minerals. Flavour has caramel, gluey tones, grapefruit, orange and minerals. A bit odd but somewhat refreshing.

Calisky (1424) - ALSACE, FRANCE - APR 1, 2015
Couleur orangée trouble, forte mousse blanche. Nez fort de houblon fruité (fruits jaunes), note de pin et fortes levures . Gout pareil, fruits jaunes notes de pin et resine puis fortes levures. Bon corps. Fin assez longue amère fruitée. Pour moi, c’est un peu trop levuré pour une ipa.

deepeary (263) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle from Eataly Roma. Nose is dominated by fruity hops. Easy drinking and flavorful, tropical fruit with a balance bitterness. Nice IPA, but rather tame.
