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.

Hoppy aroma of biscuity malt, caramel, apricot, grapefruit, more tropical fruits, flowery notes. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a moderate to medium bitter finish. Body is full. Extremely well-balanced, this is a beautiful beer. I didn’t expect to be floored by this one, but it happened!

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2014 750ml bottle served in a chalice. A: Absolutely beautiful presentation. Nice bottle art with the brewery logo stamped in the glass. Nice label and format too. The beer itself is also very charming. It pours a dark orange color forming a medium beige head. Medium retention and lots of lingering lacings formed and left in the glass. Some particles make it a little bit cloudy: Some thin bubbles can be seen being formed in the bottom of the glass. S: Great hops perfume in the nose. Classic mix of caramel malts and flowery and hops. Citrus notes of grapefruit and orange zest. T: Follows the nose. Strong notes of caramel and crystal malts. Slightly sweet upfront. Notes of grapefruit. Orange zest. Strong and delicious hop citrus bitterness. M: Light body I would dare to say. Considerable carbonation O: Great drinkability. Puro piacere! Troppo buona birra! :) [ BA Review @ 10/31/2010 ]
