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 (2997) - 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.

rusos (543) - Stupava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 26, 2016
Bottle, from drinkshop.sk. Hazy orange/golden colour, quickly falling white head. Aroma is very tempting and assertive - fresh hops, tropical and citrus fruits, passionfruit, orange, some pine, malts. Taste is too mostly hops, fresh, citrusy, tropical fruits, lemon, passionfruit, tangerine, orange, sweetish malty backbone. Bitter aftertaste. Refreshing and easily drinkable. Very good.

cagou007 (1004) - FRANCE - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle at Il Birraiuolo, Napoli-- Pours cloudy golden with medium white head. Nose is weed and tropical fruits. Aromas are citrus, tropical fruits. Low carbonation, medium body, smooth mouthful. Medium bitter, sweet and fruity finish. Lacks some bitterness and dryness to be a really good IPA, but great beer anyway! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BenL8 (60) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 16, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2016 Appearance: hazy pale golden colour with beautiful foam that remains for a while. Aroma is very fruity with a distinct estery quality. Spicy and peppery note - that and the esters give it a bit of a Belgian aroma. Flavour is also very fruity and estery and also a little Belgian. Quite spicy and a little peppery, some lemon flavour. Dry and bitter and complex finish, which lasts a long time and is really great. Hops only brings out its herbal qualities in the finish. Delicious Italian IPA!

Muddy copper. Fruity, malty, carmely. This beer has the best frothy head of any beer I’ve ever seen. Bought in SZ, enjoyed in XF. An amazing IPa. I cannot believe it’s Italian.
