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.

Fresh American pale ale. Despite the high ABV you can drink several bottles on one night.

__Rb81 (266) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle at home (best before 12/2013, batch LS179/11). Pours clear amber with an off-white head for the first glass, later more hazy with yeast. Aroma is floral hoppy fruity, yeast, malts, bit of orange. Taste is sweet, caramel malty, fruity, hoppy, pine, resin, bit herbal with a dry bitter finish. Long bitter aftertaste. Nice, must even be more hoppy when fresh.

Fantastica ipa di stampo inglese anche se con sentori al naso agrumati e un amaro al gusto molto pronunciato ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Drunk 26/08/14 at home. got it from beergeek on friday night. walked in and right away pavster morphed into full salesbeast mode and showed me all the new shit. this was what he recommended. pours dark amber with a creamy head. hoppy herby citrus aroma. bit disappointed with the taste. its less hoppy, more malty. its biscuity, spicy, with orange, grapefruit. i thought it was kinda flat & not worth the pricetag

Ragnampiza (515) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - AUG 15, 2014
330 ml bottle. Dark sunrise orange, quite clear, with a decent, creamy and persistent almost light beige head. Pungent and intense nose, slightly nutty, a hint of caramel malts, but plenty of tropical, dank and citrusy hops. Small astringency upfront, perfectly dry and quite bitter. Too malty perhaps, but you can never tell how a fresh is a Birra del Borgo beer, unfortunately. Fruity, resiny and piney aftertaste. The alchool is there, not 100% well masked. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Good overall.

fkoolen (358) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle @ P1 House, Phitsanulok. Nicely hazy deep orange colour, off-white creamy head. Tropical fruity nose and taste, indeed a bit peppery, nicely sweet and creamy malts, good bitter bite. All tones linger nicely in the aftertaste. Soft mouthfeel, medium-low carbonation, good body.

CacheManyHose (235) - HONG KONG - JUL 26, 2014
From Craftissimo, cup in Peninsula Mall. Inviting hazy amber with off-white creamy head. Smells relatively faint - quite malty, some alcohol and yeast. Taste is slightly spicy, malt, bitter finish. Body is incredibly smooth, starts almost creamy but finishes with fine carbonation. Very balanced, fine, precise. Great palate.
