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.

Bottle from Birratrovo, Como, batch L12011, bb 2013/09
Hazy light amber color, with creamy head. It’s a straight forward American Pale Ale, with a light malt flavor that lets the hops shine completely, probably Nelson Sauvin, maybe Citra; dry mouthfeel; I would prefer if it were cleaner, with less yeast; the final is very bitter.
Very pleasant. And fresh.

Theydon_Bois (8743) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle, from Johnny’s II split with Yespr on the train to Hostelboro, 28/02/14. Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is orange, leafy hops, sweet tones, fruit loaf. Taste comprises caramel malt, earthy tinge, light mango, bread dough, touch of vanilla. Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Ok but the hops felt a little tired.

MartinT (7860) - 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.

sebletitje (6711) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2014
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.
