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.

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.

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 (8883) - 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 (4572) - 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!

altonbrownd (3756) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2009
On tap at Wildeman. Really good pale ale from Italy, quite a surprise. Dark amber body with big head. Malty, sweet nose. Taste of malts, some smoked and fruits. Quite spicy and supper yummy.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours as cloudy as can be, completely unfiltered, and dark brownish-amber in color. A thick, frothy head of beige foam is steadfast, and leaves dense sheets of bubbly lacing all the way down the glass. The nose is interesting, showing a candyish caramel malt base with a formidable, floral honey overtone, followed by orange and grapefruit hops. There’s a touch of spice on the back end, reminiscent of finely powdered cinnamon. The flavor is similarly unique in its sweetness, honey-laden with a caramel-toffee backbone. Grassy, citrusy hops are bitter, but not strikingly so, allowing for a nice, flavorful balance. The yeast profile is peppery and a tad bit wild, with more cinnamon spice coming through on the finish. Medium-plus in body, with substantial, lightly prickly carbonation, the palate suits the brew well. Pretty decent stuff. A definite twist on your classic pale ale.

simoneopazz (148) - , ITALY - JUL 17, 2009
una birra di un bellisimo color rosso-ambrato,servita alla temperatura giusta risulta abbastanza amarognola al primo assaggio per poi risultare bella speziata e aromatica al palato.

rae1984 (9) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 14, 2009 does not count
I drink beer on tap. Appearance is amber-red. Aroma is hoppy and malty. Light body. Flavor is fruity. Palate is spicy. This beer good balanced and one of the best italian beer I´ve ever tasted.
