330ml bottle. Nice thick layer of butterscotch coloured foam on top of a deep dark amber beer, looks great. Packed full of big hop aromas and the flavour is the same. This is a great Italian beer.

Bottle from Birratrovo, Como, bb 30.11.12 L 1445
Amber color, bright, with medium sized compact head. The aroma is nice, hoppy and fruity. Smooth mouthfeel, with a good body structure; good toffee flavor, with moderate sweetness, and a real fruity hopping; strong bitterness, without excess; easy to drink; a light DIPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ottima IPA in stile, ottimo equilibrio tra malto e luppolo. Per niente arrogante, piuttosto secca e amara

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 0,33L. Beautifull amber and hazy color, much fraught aspect with a good bubbly presence, discreet foamy head. Incredible and rich nose, pleasant aromas of hop, flowery, daisy, stum, acid white and aged grapes. Round and little smooth body, elevated but altogether equilibrated alcoholic perception, much fresh and perfumed mouth, much hop and cellar, with and arid and realy bittersh long final. Very very good beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clean, brown golden and beige head. Raisins, caramel, cookie and fermented fruit. Rich flavour with enough hops but not only a hop focus. Bit too sweet, maybe. Refreshing still and it suits me well. Quite true to the American origins. Nice. (Sample from 33cl bottle, thanks Menno!)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. Clear, orange/brown liquid with small dirty grey head. Nose : tart malt notes, pine and citrus zest. Orange. Sip ; low to medium density with oily texture. Low carbonation. Sweet tart feeling overpowered with aromatic hops. The aftertaste is mostly bitter grapefruit. It tastes like a grapefruit It’s a decent IPA but I already tasted similar and possibly better. Netherless this is a good brew and I could easily come back to it.

Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Drukket hjemme 5 Aug 12. Gyldenbrun. Høyt kremaktig skum som varer lenge og fester seg til glasset. Herlig fruktig aroma. Ananas & sitrus. Lite kullsyre. Myk munnfølelse. God syrlig fruktig smak. Uklar i siste kvelling. Avslutter tørt & bittert. En utmerket IPA.
