4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

750ml dark olive-green nicely designed bottle with an embossed logo and a foil sealed top, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is slightly hazy amber with a medium sized beige frothy head, that reduced quickly leaving some lacing on the glass. Aroma of orange peels, pineapple, grapefruit and mango. Flavours of orange peels, pineapple, grapefruit, caramel and mango. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Overall a great balanced IPA, that is well presented in a premium looking bottle.

Draught @ Bir & Fud, Roma. Hazy orange beer with a huge foamy white head. Strong hoppy aroma has pine and fruits. Flavour is surprisingly malty with fruits and orange peel. Could have been served a lot colder as now it was not so drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fruity but a bit tired hop aroma, some resin and some caramel. Sweet caramelly taste rounded of with a bitterness that could have been a bit greater. All in all though the maltiness is nice resulting in a pretty nice taste. An ok IPA but as for many italian beers a bit to sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer was on tap in Williamsburg, orangish light amber color with a modest head. Fragrant and citrusy with a marshmellow softness. Quite unique but just OK.
