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!

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 (676) - 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.

Calisky (1397) - 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 (256) - 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.

McWorta (824) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 20, 2015
Clear golden colour at first but becomes opalescent with a smooth pillowy white head and good lacings. Aromas of pine, tropical fruits like passion fruit are dominant but also some notes of caramel, hay and hints of resin are noticeable. Lightly effervescent with a light soft texture and a medium body. Some fruity caramel sweetness hits the palate at first which then builds into a well balanced fruity pine induced bitterness. Medium lasting finish. Harmonic and pretty quaffable.
