3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
6.4% from Rakuten. 750ml bottle. A nice golden brown color with a good one inch head of off-white foam. It has a lovely fruity aroma! The flavor is biscuity & caramel malt notes then sweet fruits before finishing with crisp bitter hops. Very nice the perfect beer to celebrate my wife’s nice TOIEC score.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from 75 cl. bottle, B.B. 2007 - So I guess that this beer is of the first to have left the brewery. Light amber/orange with golden hues. Fruity aroma with oranges, grapefruits - however the hops seems to have faded somewhat. Taste is sweet. Medium body, still some carbonation left. Finishes fruity with faint citrus hops. Probably better when fresh, still flavourful.

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.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Hazy orange pour with ample cream-white head. A lovely flowery IPA with perfumy aromas of oranges, apricots, floral hops plus caramel malts. Lovely smooth mouthfeel with lowish carbonation and easy drinkability. Flavours are well integrated with decent hop bitterness. I would call this an English style IPA (rather than stated APA) for which this is a fine example.
