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!

DrnkMcDermott (2879) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Draft at Bavarian Lodge. Always excited to get a taste of the Italian craft beer action. In its tulip, this is a cloudy, lighter bodied pale ale, with a thin layer of foam and some lace at the edges. Smell does not have the hoppy slap in the face of an APA. Rather, there’s a note of fresh cherries, then some citrus hop. I should rate it higher for being understated, perhaps, but this is what it is. Instead, i say the taste is very unusual and delicious. I’m thinking, wrongly no doubt, of the newer hop varieties with kiwi or more tropical fruit notes. Malt is crystal with some aromatics, likely into a Belgian mix, or more likely what you get when an Italian brewer stops trying to imitate Heineken. yes, clearly a warm ale ferment, with fruity esters and lovely tasty malts, just a little bit thick. Touch of black pepper at the finish. Cheers, I say again cheers to growing craft beer scenes in new countries. This one’s a keeper, though it may be too delicate to have in a bottle.

blackisle (1077) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Clear medium amber, good two finger frothy white head, diminishes slowly, good lacing; aroma of citrus, grapefruit, yeast, pine, floral notes; taste medium bitter, light sweet, citrusy; medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, finish medium bitter, light sweet fruity notes; of course not an APA but a nice example of a smooth and mellow IPA.

BLADT (680) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2015
From bottle at Eataly Milan. Pours opaque orange. Solid head with consistent lacing. Nose is white bread, apples. Hops kick in some resin. Pleasant and subtle. Flavor builds on these notes, layering in pine and orange zest. A bit oily. Tends towards the hoppy-sweet end of the spectrum, but never approaches cloying. Very good.

theisti (3414) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAY 5, 2015
~14 oz Teku glass draft at Birreria @ Eataly in New York. The pour is hazed orange golden with a smallish white head. Nice lace left on the glass. The aroma is a nice blend of fresh cracker biscuit malt and fruit citrus hoppiness. Very present nose. The taste matches the nose, blend of biscuit malt with fresh fruit and citrus hops. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation and a dry clean finish. Tasty beer.

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 (210) - 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 (814) - 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.
