3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 10A, slightly adapted). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L338 12. AROMA: hop aromas with citric notes mixed with caramelized malt and some esters (orange). it also has a port like quality. APPEARANCE: amber color and very hazy with material in suspension. medium ivory head with good retention. TASTE: flavours similar to the aromas but much more restrained. floral hop notes with a nice malty balance. low bitterness with a medium-sweet finish. PALATE: thin body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a different interpretation of an APA with more mild flavours and bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A gushing bottle, pours a fairly dark amber-orange, hazy, with a large off-white head. Aroma is sweet, toasted malts, noble hops and some grapefruit and peach. Flavour is sweet, spicy, toffee, hops. Grapefruit. A light body with lively carbonation. Interesting and different but not amazing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, exactly on the "best before" day.
Nice amber/orange color, hazy, with very big head. Smell is fruity, peach, apricot, something exotic, and also some caramel malt. Taste is instead very lemonish, citric, even tart.
The low carbonation doesn’t help, it reminds to me also the tea. I would like some more gas.
Not bad, ok beer, but not my favourite.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ il molo, Ranco. Ambrato carico, quasi ramato, opalescente. Schiuma beige fine poco persistente. aroma intenso, fruttato, agrumato (scorza di pompelmo) e resinoso. sicuramente dry hopped. Note secodnarie di caramello, malto e frutta secca/tostata. Gusto secco, amaro, poi maltato che ricorda il caramello, lievissimo retrogusto tostato. Corpo medio, carbonatazione alta, spigolosa senza eccessi, poco calda, astringente. equilibrata ed armonica.
