Nice beer, obviously an American brewer was behind this one... Nice hop aroma great to see an Italiano who has the balls to dry hop!

- Aroma Floral and hops notes extremely balanced. While in the glass keep changing - Appearance Great white head. Pale gold. - Taste Great work in the balance. The bitter is not overwhelmed and leave a space to the citrus note. I consider this beer one of the best IPA to pairing with food!!

Forcina (52) - Bellinzona, Rome, Brussels, SWITZERLAND - SEP 13, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2010 For the aroma is still the best ipa I’ve ever had by far. The complex flavour is a mix of everything you can image and more. Citrus, grapefruit, pomegranate. An amazing experience.

Una birra perfetta con i formaggi. Perfetta anche per un aperitivo a base di crudo di pesce.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2008
Cask at Ma che siete venuti a fà, Rome. Wow! Cascade, Amarillo, Tomahawk and Columbus are the holy quadrinity of hops used in this gorgeous amber brew which makes for a total American lupulin-fest on the tongue. The nose is like nothing else I’ve ever smelt before; citrus, rose petals, pine, resins, peachy fruit and simply gorgeously inviting. The flavour starts off with a huge blast of bitterness yet this recedes and allows the complexity and character through with sweet maltiness balancing pine needles, citrus, more Turkish delight-like tastes and a whole range of fruity, leafy and lemony hoppiness. The finish is the work of a true craftsman with the substantial bitterness being held in perfect balance by the juicy maltiness and incredible hop character with all the previous tastes coming through - pine, rose, citrus, even some tobacco and lime zest! Anyone can brew a beer with these four hops and make it "extreme", but it takes a lot of skill to make such a beer as excellently balanced as this is; Leonardo the brewer is an artist in beer.

drpimento (2153) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Excellent beer! Poured with a huge, thick, foamy, frothy, sudsy, off white head that lasts a long time and lots of lace. Color is a clear medium amber. Aroma is hops, toffee, fruit, malt, yeast. Flavor’s like nose with perfect sweet - bitter balance for this style. Ditto the body & carbonation. Finish is a little sweet at first with a long tapering bitterness. No hint of alcohol except perhaps a teeny bit at the very end. Session beer for sure if you can afford it.

On tap at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL. Right from the first sniff and subsequent sip, I was blown away here. This has to be the most drinkable ipa I have ever had. Its just truly incredible how velvety smooth and creamy this one is. The aroma is like strolling through a floral garden of hops. Nothing is too over the top, but it very subtly consumes your senses. There’s also some nice fruity esters here in the nose, especially apricot. The malt’s are in the background with a unique mix of biscuits and rice. On the pour, some creamy, milky white head with some wispy lacing, and a lightly hazed, blonde orange color. As previously mentioned, the smoothness to the feel is remarkable, but the hoppy bitter bite that flows in toward the finish makes the palate as close to perfect as it gets. Flavors start off with mixed tangy and sweet fruits, apricots, and pears. Florals galore and rice biscuits come soon after. The finish is then impeccably balanced with mild tropical citrus and caramel malts. Wow. Absolutely incredible!

Birra che crea dipendenza. Luppolata in maniera massiccia,note agrumate,resinose con continui riempimenti di bocca della parte maltosa e del luppolo sul finale. Birra del Borgo si è superata. Bevuta in bottiglia.
