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.

IPAgutten79 (481) - 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 (802) - 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.

ACD (621) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 2, 2014
33cl bottle. Copper with big fluffy white head. Nice bright pineapple and grapefruit on the nose, some sweet caramel, and earthy peppery notes. Taste gives great sweet fruits: pineapple and orange. Crunchy caramel and biscuit malt in there. Residual pepper, herbs, sweet bready malts and grapefruit. On the sweeter side of APAs, but really good. Impressive use of EKG, lovely stuff.

Niksko (315) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2013
750ml bottle.
Pours a hazy amber with a finger of fine white head.
Nose is classic American pale ale. Lots of grapefruit backed by some orange and lemon notes, a bit of caramel sweetness and a bit of pepper from the EKG.
Once again, a classic APA on the palate. Some caramel sweetness and some orange and grapefruit flavours, followed by a measured grapefruit bitterness with just a hint of pine.
Body is medium and the carbonation was just what I want from an APA. Not too fizzy, but enough so that it doesn’t taste flat.
Those Italians really know what they’re doing. Nothing mind blowing, but a really excellent example of the style from somebody geographically a million miles away.

Jado (495) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2013
From 640 ml bottle. Pours a clear red-amber with a one-finger off-white head that laces well. Fine carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pine needles, flowers, light caramel and a touch of pepper. The taste starts out with some biscuity malt but that quickly gives way to a firm lemon zest bitterness with pine overtones. Slips away to a slightly sweet finish with a really nice peppery aftertaste. Like it a lot.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 6, 2013
Amber body, clean and small head. Simple aroma, foresty hops yet dimmed, dusty. Light caramel malts. Not terribly interesting. Light bitterness. Disappointing. (33cl bottle from Eataly Torino)
