3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours quite a cloudy gold with a moderate, frothy off-white foam head. Aroma holds toasted pine, ripe orange, lightly toasted grainy bread. Medium sweet flavor, some sticky pine, pectin, ripe orange and grapefruit, hints of alcohol and mango. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming and resinous to finish, some tangy citrus notes, bitter earth and pine, some citrus rind. I suppose some of the tang present springs from the rye. Nice APA.

Bottle from Corks of Cotham, Bristol. Hazy amber with a tight, off-white head and plenty of carbonation. Pine, tangerine and yeasty stone fruit aroma. Sweetish flavours upfront, with some caramel, slightly earthy malts, tropical fruit and green herbs. Finish was dry and resinous. Excellent.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber in color with whitish head. Tropical fruits leading into cats pee in aroma. Flavor has similar indications, a bit of that tropical fruitiness but also that grassy bitterness is in there. lots of wild red berries in finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl. bottle sampled courtesy of Kraddel. Thx! An American Pale Ale brewed by what I hear is the most popular Italian craft brewery within italy itself, partially along with Extraomnes. It is because they mike fine beers & more importantly because they are the cheapest ones compared to other Italian craft breweries where you frequently have to pay a pretty penny. Pour a clear orange with white bubbles for a head. Smells of spices, grapefruit, musty with herbs & quite a bit of pine. Taste is bitter herbs & caramel malts, light signs of age, herbs & lots of spices, little pine resin & toffee. Medium bodied, agreeable that is for sure, not bad at all.

Facile da bere e accattivante alla vista, con un buon amaro finale. Forse poca schiuma

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Orange hazy. Nose is really hoppy in a raw, crafty, manner; a lot of green tones together with sharp (grapefruit) citrus, green berries and currants. Some caramel and pale malts, but the hops dominate. Body is lightish, medium dry with a strong bitter back. Very flavourly hoppy, almost like drinking a hop soup. Some yeasty, dried bread, notes in the finish. A nice raw, homebrew- like hoppy ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
03/01/2013 La Tana (tap). Ambrata, un po’ spenta, lievemente torbida, schiuma bianca abbondante e persistente. Aroma intensissimo, davvero spettacolare, di luppolo, con note fruttate, di pompelmo e pesca. In bocca è amara decisa ma non eccessiva, con una buona base di malto, molto bilanciata e anche facile da bere. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. APA di ottima fattura.
