COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 (2894) - 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.

colui72 (173) - HONG KONG - JUN 28, 2015
Colour is golden/orange, hazy. Minimal white head. Aroma of citrus, fruity. The taste enhances the fruit, but it keeps it wonderfully mild and elegant. Smooth til the end. Bitter finish, grapefruit after taste. Beautiful beer.

Bottle - pours a big thick fluffy head that dissipates. It has a cloudy dark amber appearance. Its aroma is vibrant with floral/citrus hops, musty sweet malt and mild funky yeast. Flavors are similar but more intense and complex. Tasty, complex, balanced, European and I wish I had more.

cervmagpt (389) - PORTUGAL - JUN 17, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 18B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch LS18314A. AROMA: nice hop aroma with tropical fruit notes and some resin, balanced with a malty sweet background. APPEARANCE: dark gold color and hazy with material in suspension. medium, light ivory head with below average retention. TASTE: balanced flavour between hops (tropical fruits and some resin) and a moderate sweet malty background. medium bitterness that lingers into a semi-dry and bitter finish. PALATE: medium-light body with moderate carbonation. no astringency. OVERALL: a very nice APA, with a bit more alcohol.

Alengrin (3105) - BELGIUM - MAY 24, 2015
IPA from one of those interesting Italian micros, with a name which is apparently short for "rethinking ale". Comes from a very elegant bottle the shape of which I’d rather associate with something like balsamico or olive oil - Italians know how to be elegant, of course... Creamy, dense, snow white head leaving tooth-shaped lacings on the wall of the glass; colour is a hazy, warm orange blonde with a ’fog’ of minute yeast cells and calm fizz. Appetizing, fresh aroma, most of all citrussy and somewhat less ’dank’ or ’weedy’ than many other IPAs I had; elegance is again the key word here. I get fresh orange juice, fresh mango, lemon zest, vanilla, mandarin peel, moscatel wine, sweet honey, overripe pineapple, spring flowers, freshly cut nettles in spring, minerals too, hint of caramel. Smooth and utterly elegant flavour, extremely fruity at first, a whole basket of exotic fruits with tons of citrus juice and zest, pineapple, orange, papaja, gentle but very refreshing acidic lime juice accent, soft carbonation, supple and subtle caramelly malt backbone, minerals, bitter honey, gradually evolving into a long hop bitter finish, drying and mouth watering, very elegant again, very bitter but in a gracious, gentle kind of way, very citrussy, floral and spicy. Perhaps not the most complex IPA, but certainly one of the most elegant ones I had so far. Delightful, extremely elegant in presentation, aroma and flavour - I almost get a ’feminine’ feeling about this. Viva Italia!
