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.

rulas3 (107) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 27, 2012
Apariencia: color anaranjado cobrizo, turbio, traslúcido, con mucho carbónico aparente, corona color hueso muy claro, casi blanco, abundante y constante. Aroma: intensidad media alta, muy floral, ligeros cítricos, destacan las frutas blancas, como la uva. Sabor: es un poco amarga, cuerpo medio, el primer momento en boca es más bien maltoso, caramelo, etc. Pero en seguida da paso a los cítricos, sobre todo pomelo y flores. Nada de pino o resina. Alcohol muy bien integrado. El carbónico se nota, es persistente, pero no exagerado. Es una pale ale muy lupulizada. Por esto y por el aspecto es casi una IPA. Muy bien hecha, una gran cerveza, equilibrada.

Un passo sotto la Extra,perchè le esplosioni al naso della Extra sono qualcosa di eccessivamente buono. Si rimane su note agrumate caratteristiche delle APA,con un bilanciamento in bocca,spettacolare. Bevuta in bottiglia.

Birra ambrata molto luppolata, sia amara che aromatica.Sapore di malto e di frutta, con retrogusto persistente. Carbonazione discreta, giusta per lo stile, non eccessiva. Ottima.

The tap beer in Bir & Fud in Rome. One of the best beers I´ve ever tasted. It´s fresh and perfectly hoppy for me. Something similarity with Huvila beers (24.5.2009).

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2011 meno caratteristica della extra, è una eccellente ipa piuttosto tradizionale e bevibile.

Robusta APA, molto amara e dall’aroma deciso. Rimane a lungo il sapore di luppolo in bocca. La bevuta perfetta accanto a un panino dell’Open.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Pours a perfectly clear deep reddish copper with a perfect 1 finger head that stays for the whole glass. Aroma is gooseberry, blood orange, mild biscuit, deep complex caramel. Taste is an absolutely sublime balance between caramel sweetness, gooseberry, and tangerine notes. Body is medium, medium carbonation, finishes with big caramel sweetness followed by just enough hops to balance. overall, there are very few beers that truly inspire me, but this one was truly something special.

750ml bottle, Rehils, Ncl. Initially an elderflower aroma greets me from the pour, beautifully fresh, that develops into a quite intense hop aroma that is gorgeous. Lovely hazy red-copper appearance, with a clean white head. The taste is a superb rounded concoction of biscuit, orange and spices with a fine warming sensation on the throat and in the chest. Cracking stuff

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2012 Molto buona questa america pele ale! Se non fosse per l’odore ferroso, rivaleggierebbe con le migliori birre americane!! Senza dubbio! 03/03/2012 Riassaggiata e comprate altre 2 bottiglie buonissima!

From the tap came a lovely golden brew with a thin white head. Full bodied with well balanced aromas and flavors of malt and hops with hints of honey and a nice, light hop finish.
