2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In short: An overly sweet fruity IPA. Meh.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed fresh soon after purchase directly at the store of Spanish the importer of this Italian brewery.
The look: Cloudy dark orange body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose blends some slightly-stale fruity hops and malts sweetness which combine to create a candied fruits aroma. In mouth the beer has a medium size body and a medium carbonation, Taste is very much on the sweet side for the style. There is a lot of sweetness and with the strong fruitiness the beer tastes like a caramelized fruit jam. Bitterness is crushed by the sweet dried fruits and canned fruits flavor. I drank this beer one week after I purchased it in a beer store oversea and I think I was sold an old stale IPA, but there’s nothing I could do about it because I was back home, I felt as frustrated and powerless as when I want to reset my wifi router but I’m unable to because it is in my neighbour’s apartment.

Flaska @ Domus Birrae, Rom. Dimmigt guldfärgad med smutsvitt skum. Såväl smaker som dofter av citron, grapefrukt, karamell och tallbarr. Intensiv beska, medel mot liten sötma. Oljig munkänsla.
