COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra ambrata di alta fermentazione ispirata alle tradizionali India Pale Ale inglesi, molto luppolata nell’aroma e nell’amaro. Al naso si percepiscono sentori agrumati principalmente di pompelmo e sentori speziati, in bocca il malto fa da padrone, segue poi il fruttato ed infine l’amaro che rimane molto persistente. La gasatura medio bassa tipica dello stile ne consente il servizio con la tradizionale pompa inglese.
A brand-new beer from a brand-new, very promising head-brewer. India Pale Ale following the American Pale Ale style with a fruity aroma (grapefruit), with peppery notes (East Kent Goldings), a rich taste of malts (Maris Otter and Crystal), with a very long bitter and citrus finish typical of Cascade hops.

Suttree (5127) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Downstairs at the Thirsty Monk. Clear-ish orange, loose white head. Herbal, bready aroma. Weird flavor - Candy-ish, then a big medicinal note. Some hoppy notes, too. Really odd beer.

buona birra, con ottimi margini di migliorabilità a partire dall’aspetto, schiuma un po troppo grosolana con un perlage poco raffinato. al gusto un discreto amaro finale che non stona anche se sul finale semra un po troppo "annacquato"...

Keg (Bir&Fud, Rome)
Sweet peachy, even mandariny, aroma. Taste follows that lead - tons of mandarin. Soft and sweet, in particular after it’s let warm to a decent temperature. A touch sticky, as the residual sugars are high, but the rich malts and occasional honey hint are pleasant.

Travlr (10574) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Tap at Churchkey. Greg does have an interesting collection of Italian brews! Golden color, thin white head, massive lacing. Aroma of rye bread and grass. Bitter and dry, with flavors of scallions and black pepper. Interesting.

jannek (42) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 13, 2009
Bottle 75 cl from Eataly Bologna, exp. 9/2010. Not much head, but has lacing. Resembles some ESB’s, perhaps the EKG has survived better than the Cascade. Rather sweet and full-bodied. Sticky bitterness.

fonefan (34595) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle 75cl.
Clear medium to dark orange amber color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, nutty, spicy, moderate hoppy, orange. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and shell bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20090901]

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2009
On tap at Bir & Fud. Pour hazy gold with a big white head (takes a long time to pour at the restaurant). Aroma of grapefruit and other citrus hops. Flavor is sweet for a pale ale, and the hops have almost a tea like quality. Another decent brew.

hopscotch (9064) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Bottle… Hazy caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Honey, fruity nose with an unidentified household spice that neither my wife nor I can place (Nutmeg? Ginger? A blend of the two?). Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. Sweet, fruity, spicy flavor with light tanginess and low bitterness. Tangy, sweet, and then dry finish.

Borresteijn (4620) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2009
On tap at In de Wildeman (cask? no carbonation...) Light hazy golden orange colour, creamy frothy white head. Gentle aroma of grapefruity hops, sweet oranges, mango, some yeast. Flavour is sweet, very fruity, oranges, tangerine, light grapefruity hops in the finish, along with some earthy liquorice notes. Oily mouthfeel, medium bodied. Nice beer!
