E’ un american pale ale da 4,5 gradi alcolici, di colore paglierino con una leggera torbidezza che ne esalta l’artigianalità, la schiuma è bianca e soffice nel rispetto dello stile, aroma complesso e preponderante risultato dei luppoli americani usati, fra cui spicca il simcoe e il citra, in bocca troviamo una birra leggera ma allo stesso tempo dotata del corpo necessario a sostenerne i profumi, un soffice ma deciso amaro nel finale ne aumenta la bevibilità. Una birra pensata per ogni momento degli amanti del luppolo.

On tap at Hoppy Days. Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of citrus, some pine, grapefruit, light malty. Flavour is light sweet, dry, crisp malts, nice fruity and citrusy hops, firm dry bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied. Very sessionable.

brianza_ale (203) - ITALY - OCT 8, 2014
33cl in teku. Pours a small dense and bubbly head, cloudy golden colour with bubbles attached to glass and going everywhere. Smells very aromatic, orange, zesty, honey, hoppy, that’s a nice aroma. Taste is actually more malty than expexted, intially, then leaves place gradually to a small to medium bitterness; caramel malt, citrus and resinous; herbaceous and quite lasting finish. Medium bodied, quite soft carbonation. Overall a very nice aroma, a bit more lacking in the taste in my opinion

MartinT (9191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed oranges lead to resinous bitterness and a leafy aftertaste in this muddled, dime a dozen Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces around the dull golden.
-This is too sweet for my tastes in the style.
-Hops taste a little musty.
-This may be very hoppy, but it remains an average American brewpub IPA, a brew-by-numbers example.

On tap at Brasserie 4:20.

Hazy amber color. Citrus and herbal aroma, dry with fresh bitterness but too much yeasty.

mzaar (2705) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2014
(Rating nummer 1400). Flaska drucken på Domus Birrae, Rom. Lätt dimmigt orange med smutsvitt skum som snart sjunker undan. Där finns en unkenhet i doften som slår emot en till en början. Denna försvinner till stor del efter ett tag men lämnar kvar spår som drar ner betyget. Övriga, bra, doftinslag är apelsin, malt och tallbarr. Smakinslag av apelsin, grape frukt, kåda, melon, karamell och gräs, och det är väl avvägt sötma/beska. Det är smakmässigt en riktigt bra APA.

Per tractar-se d’una APA està més llupolitzada que algunes IPAs. Por tratarse de una APA está mas lupolizada que algunas IPs.

Bouteille 33cl de Giorgio @ Il Pretesto, grazie a te. BB 07/2014, lotto# 039. Dorée, col blanc. Arôme d’houblons frais, léger fleuri avec un petit rétro de citronnelle. Palais est malté-grains avec un très bon profil houblonné qui balance un peu le tout et ajoute un agréable fleuri avec une impression de feuilles vertes. Simple et légère, sympa. Je trouve le profil houblonné judicieux et complétant parfaitement le malt. Encore une fois, à 4.5%, complexe sans pour cela taper dans des degrés de volume à la belge.

Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has light maltiness, some pines and soapy fruits. Thinnish. Flavour is fruit, sweet malty, piny hoppy. Nice finish.

330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo.Lo 16. 29-03-2014.
In short: a murky grassy ale.
Pours murky orange with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Citrusy, grassy, some subtle sour aromas. Medium body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is citrusy, bitter, grassy, some tart notes, fruity. Dry finish. Enjoyable.
