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.

Birra ambrata, decisamente luppolata, ma estremamente squilibrata. Banale, e non particolarmente gradevole.

Juggernaut84 (197) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2015
Bernsteinrot wenig Schaum. Aroma ist Maracuja und Etwas Harzig, nussig auch und leicht krautig. Der Antrunk ist würzig leicht pfeffrig, trotzdem ist es weich und fruchtig und vor allem sehr nussig würzig. Der Abgang ist süß-holzig.

Alengrin (4247) - BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2015
Borgo’s well-known APA, at Gollem. Loose, irregular, off-white, moussy head, hazy orange blonde robe, cloudy with deposit and a bit murky. Aroma of red apple, animalistic horse sweat, mouldy orange, overripe peach, mango, acacia honey, biscuit. Fruity, crisp onset, peachy, hint banana, orange freshness, light green olive-like umami touch, soft carbo, light bready malts with a subtle toasted edge, long dry finish of aromatic citrus peel hoppiness, gentle and not too earthy, but there is quite a lot of yeastiness in the end as well, mildly bittering. Notably less clean than the Extra version I hugely enjoyed, probably not fresh enough for this style either, but still a very pleasant Italian craft beer, from, it must be said, a very elegant bottle again.

Bottle. Pours a hazy pinkish red with a fading white lacy head. Aroma of red fruits, cherries, oranges, grassy. Taste is of blood orange, bubblegum, really fruity, caramel, red fruits. Smooth foamy, oily mouthfeel. Lovely.

Kosmokrator (813) - ITALY - NOV 17, 2015
Ambrata e limpida con massiccia schiuma bianca. Deboluccia al naso e al palato, fruttata, delicatamente luppolata, ben bilanciata tra dolciastro e amarognolo ma non convince del tutto.
