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.

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

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
