COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra ispirata allo stile American Style Black Ale (Black IPA), prodotta artigianalmente utilizzando acqua, malto d’orzo, luppolo e lievito. Dal colore nero quasi impenetrabile con qualche riflesso granata, si presenta con un bel cappello di schiuma compatta e persistente. Aromi e sapori si intrecciano nelle componenti maltate e nella generosa luppolatura con varietà americane. Il dry hopping effettuato con l’ “Hoptimator”, strumento progettato dal team del birrificio, dona alla birra un carattere fresco ed intenso di luppolo. Secca e beverina, nonostante i suoi 7,5 gradi alcolici, Castigamatt è il lato oscuro del luppolo.

Ottima questa Black IPA, decisamente + IPA che Black...aroma di pompelmo ben percettibile, aghi di pino e leggero tostato...forse non proprio un esempio dello stile in causa ma sempre un’ottima bevuta

Bottle. Dark brown, almost opaque with medium, long lasting, beige head and nice lacing.Aromas of citrus, hops on malty background, nice but could be stronger. Medium body, alcohol well hidden, right bitterness with little bit sweet finish and very pleasant mouth feel. Good stuff!

Shit! Här gick min kompis mzaar på knockout och drog fram denna fantastiska Svart-IPA. Ska erkännas att jag inte har druckit så många tidigare. Men high five.

Sampled from tap at ’Craft & Draft’. Clear, very dark red with a light brown head. Sweetish, roasty and slightly resiny aroma of dark chocolate, some coffee, mango and pine. Sweetish, fruity-resiny and moderately roasty taste of dark chocolate, some coffee, hazelnut, mango and pine, followed by a short, moderately roasty-bitter, resiny finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Nice!

rikstar (2177) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2016
Van de tap bij hoppy days in Amsterdam zwart met een creme kraag. Zit meer in het zuur dan in het bitter met wat koffie en citrus tonen. Niet verkeerd.

IlGagario (115) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 24, 2016
On tap. Colore nero impenetrabile. Testa color crema di caffè, da soapy a cremosa, piccante. Naso di luppolo pungente. Carbonazione da vivace a intensa, a tratti eccessiva e fastidiosa. Aroma di caffè e orzo tostato un po’ scarico, pompelmo acerbo e scorza di limone. Gusto amaro pungente, qua e là sgradevolmente astringente, con l’alcool nettamente presente ed ingombrante, con il tutto a fare increspare la lingua e rendere difficoltosa la scorrevolezza. Corpo da medio a pieno. Finale lungo e amaro. Una black ipa provocatoria, che vuole essere ruvida e solida ma purtroppo non è ben bilanciata. Un po’ semplicistica e raffazzonata, non è male ma è nettamente inferiore alle sue rivali straniere.
