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.

Ungstrup (29528) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2006 [Re-rate in Copenhagen from bottle, brought by the brewer] An undlear orange beer with a nice off-white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of yeast, but also light notes of oranges, while the flavor is sweet with lots of citrusfruit notes: oranges, lemon, and grapefruit, but also notes of caramel. The body is thin. As I expected in London, something must have been wrong over there - it is still nothing special - but it is far from bad.

[At GBBF 2005] An unclear orange beer with a white head. The aroma stings the nose with acidic notes combined with notes of yeast. The flavor is off - acidic with a few fruity notes of peaches. I hope it is the transportation to London that put this beer off. [3/3/2/3/4]

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 <i>2008-12-02, draught at Pig´s Ear Festival 2008, London, 7-4-7-5-15=38</i>
Cloudy amber color. Strange beer: very strong perfumy aroma, like the perfumes in Indian shops, and oranges; then the tangerines and oranges take over, and it gets better. I like the flavor more, with some good malt, medium sweet, and a good hopping with fruity touch &&#35;40;bitter oranges&&#35;41;. Confusingly complex, very good.

<i>2006-05-20, bottle, 7-4-7-5-15=38</i>
Hazy amber color. The aroma has some malt and hop. The flavor has a lot of malt and toffee hop, strong bitterness, well mixed. Strong final. Very good.
