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.

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle 750 ml at home, poured into a big tulip glass. ABV 6.4% dark orange colour on the body, almost amber. quite transparent but with lots of yeast bits floating around in the body. Two fingers of off-white head, medium thick, with good retention and medium lacing left on the glass. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel malts, lots of mandarines. Taste has yeast, grapefruit, more caramel malts, a bit of orange peel, mandarines, with a good bitterness on the aftertaste, lingering for quite a long time. Medium body, low carbonated but quite enough, nice dryness on the palate. Overall: Great beer, I bet fresh would be even more better.

Un classico di birra del Borgo. Reinterpretazione personale di una IPA. Bel colore ambrato, bella schiuma pannosa e persistente. Profumi erbacei e caramellati. Buon corpo, bassa carbonatazione, ottimo equilibrio malti/luppoli. Buon amaro finale. Buona.

Red/gold pour with a fluffy off-white head.Malty, toasty, caramel aroma, a little citrus. Sweet, malty taste, a nice amount of bitterness cuts through at the end, citrus and spicy fruit.

Maris (956) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 From a 750ml bottle on 3/3/2014. Pours a very dark golden/light amber with a medium head. Has a light spicy, fruity, yeasty aroma. In the mouth, it’s much more intense - you lot’s of caramel and bready malt, sweet citrus and stone fruit (orange, apricot), and a lovely tangy, spicy, hoppy bitterness. Has a thick, almost creamy palate with medium to lively carbonation. It is a bit hard to pigeon hole style wise, but a hoppy APA wouldn’t be far off the mark. Another damn fine beer from this brewer.

Bottle. Dark reddish amber with a small, frothy, mostly lasting white to off-white head. Aroma is malt, citrus, grapefruit, caramel, grass, yeast. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter, yeasty, malty, caramel, light herbal with fruity hints. Long lasting salty bitter finish. Nice balance.

IPAgutten79 (452) - Skui, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2014
Flott mørk gylden farge, medium høyde på skummet. Fin aroma av karamell, humle og vagt av frukt (grapefrukt?). Smaken er meget god. Her er karamell, frukt og humle. Jeg får først karamell, før det kommer en fin bitterhet snikende. Fin, men ganske mild bitterhet i ettersmaken. Medium konsistens på denne.

ciaranc (784) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 11, 2014
Draught at Against The Grain. Clear pale amber tinted gold, decent foamy white head, lasting. Nose has a lovely floral note, perfume, pineapple and tropical fruits. Gorgeous. Aroma flows into the flavour, fruity, edible flower flavours, toasted malts. Big robust body, soft carbonation. Finish is long, malty and fruity. Really good.
