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.

KeefOz (833) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2014
BB 08 2105. Poured a cloudy amber colour with a thick off-white foamy head that retained very well. Laced well. Carbonation moderate with small bubbles. Aroma subtly of citrus. Taste had strong malt, sweet orange, moderate hops flavour and a citric tartness. Medium body. Long tartness which is a bit biting but overall more subtle flavours than other APAs.

Bottle in Italy. Clear orange pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, resin, biscuits and some pine. Flavor is fruity bitter hops and heavy malts in a nice balance. Somewhat harsh, but very full and thick. Nice brew.

beerfest5 (1125) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 24, 2014
Nice blend of variations to the pale ale style. American hop signature in the aroma and flavor combined with an European affection for the bready caramel malts. Overall a very well balanced interpretation.
