COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Un’ambrata in stile India Pale Ale (IPA). I ricercati luppoli le regalano i dolci profumi di frutta esotica.

Le IPA in origine erano destinate alle truppe inglesi di stanza nelle lontane colonie e create per resistere ai lunghi e caldi viaggi prima dell’invenzione del frigorifero. BSA l’ha dedicata al Togo e partecipa donando parte dei ricavati per aiutare la popolazione con la costruzione di pozzi e acquedotti insieme alla associazione TogoToTogo.

Da gustare al ritmo di tamburi selvaggi o leggendo le fantastiche avventure esotiche di Salgari.

sebletitje (6849) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2014
Draft sample @ Birra Expo’14 Piacenza. Ambrée-cuivrée, col épais café au lait. Arôme au bouquet malté grillé et torréfié le tout rappelant la drêche et un rétro houblonné légèrement fleuri sur un fruité discret. Palais IPA au profil plus malté tirant sur un agréable grillé et torréfié avec une pointe pilsner. Léger moka et agrémenté d’un houblonné sec et herbacé mais qui reste néanmoins en retrait par rapport aux malts. Bière passant plus pour une PA que IPA de par les malts. Amertume reste en retrait et se termine sur un fleuri léger.

Countbeer (4647) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle: Thanks Aaltje: Served in a shaker: Meeium to bigger creamy foamy head on top of a hazy orange amber colored beer. Aroma makes it clear it’s past BB but still a very decent aroma! There’s more malts than hops, some herbs, some soap, light fruity and some sticky sweet malts like caramel. Flavours of malts, herbs, bitters, some bitter fruits, caramel, some yeast, light plant tone and some hay. Aftertaste is bitter with malts, herbs, grapefruit and some nettle with a hay touch. Low carbo, creamy foamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy thicker texture.

wyzzywyz22 (1996) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle, Beers of Europe. Amber pour with a lingering white head. Vague citrus and grassy hop in the nose. Flavour was sweet malts and a little citrus. Rather muted bitterness. Nothing special really and a bit lacklustre. Decent enough Ramones reference though.

Benzai (8747) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle @ home shared with Thompson. Hazy dark orange color, full sized rough off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, lightly yeast, but nicely fruit hops as well. Taste malts, fruit hops, moderately bitter. Bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad but a little unbalanced imo.

Flavour is very malt-forward, some caramel, sweet, fruity, some orange and grapefruit, bitter malty and yeasty finish with some hops. Medium-bodied. Nice.
