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 (2934) - 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.

Bottle. Pours a deep gold with a large-grained, fast-disappearing, off-white head. Nose is intensely candied orange, muscat grapes, violets, and a little rosemary. Sweet and savory up front; there’s kind of a cheese and marmalade thing going on at the beginning. The bitterness kicks in on the midpalate with an ashy, dry, herbal punch, and never goes away after that; the beer seems to be all about the contrast between the sweetness and fruitiness and the abrupt dryness, and in that it works. Sparse, parched finish with a bit more savory, biscuity notes. Interesting take on the style, and somehow very Italian.

6.4%ABV. IPA Tapped out a nice amber. 14ºSRM. Nose is full of bright peppery flavors. There is also a pronounced aroma of unripe star fruits, which for the uninitiated is an aroma that combines pineapple, grapefruit and grass. Mouthfeel is soapy. Carbonation is adequate to carry the nicely malted body that has water biscuit, wheat toast and rice. The hop finish is peppery and light with a slight lean towards being a little aggressive. Interesting.
