It was a hop explosion, an experience heightening my senses. Imagining all I desired from my beer but never dared to ask for. Some people thought it wasn’t for everyone. Ultimately, most of those who tried it ended up falling in love with her.

Hop is this beer’s undoubted star.
Being our reoccurring dream, our addiction, our cure, cause and resolution of many heartaches, we always come back to this beer, we want to fill ourselves with it. We want it to touch our hearts and souls while diving deep in its inebriant scents. We want to merge with it. It has aromas of mango, tropical fruit, grapefruit and bitter orange with balsamic notes and subtle malty nuances. Light amber almost orange with a very persistent white head, rich in refined West Coast hop resins, it is liquid poetry, wisdom and satisfaction lasting till the last drop. Just like love awakens the heart making the longing for the beloved source of torment, so our hop craving will find redemption every time we will near our lips to this beer.

Thanks to Beerlover_Ben. 330 ml. HUGE GUSHER. Also BBF 09/2013 if I understand correctly the Italian text. Pours a hazy golden with a huge collapsing white head. Nose is weird lactic thick yeast with some soap & reasonably share of floral mint, very weird & obviously not normal. Taste is same weird lactic yeast / dough, mint, soap, fizzy, mineral, sweetish taste,…. Very fizzy body. Oddly somewhat interesting but obv. not normal. I am fairly certain that there is no way either that fresh this bottle would have tasted entirely okay. Very odd flavor profile.

Backlog rating. 33cl bottle from Grand Cru, Rimini. It pours a hazy apricot color with a medium white head. Aroma is rich of fruity juicy hops, citrus peel, ripe peaches, pine cones. Taste is medium sweet and finishes lightly bitter and citric, with notes of ripe mango, grapefruit, grass and lemon leaves. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, really good IPA

Petit souvenir de Rome.... Une IPA qui ce défend bien! Au nez comme au goût nous avons droit aux classiques fruits exotique avec une pointe de citron. Une amertume qui perdure... A Noi!
