massive head on this hazy orange beer. Lots going on in the aroma, citrus, tropical fruit, herbs. Flavor full of sweet fruits and bittering hops. SUprisingly light.

Il fatto che più che a una ipa classica questo prodotto assomiglia a una apa dalla luppolatura decisa e agrumata, non deve distrarre da una considerazione più generale: si tratta di una delle migliori ipa italiane. Quando il palato ha voglia di una ipa, questa è sicuramente la scelta giusta. è la prova che non necessariamente bisogna smerimentare l’intentabile per ottenere una buona birra.

Bottle - hazy orange with huge white head. Aroma of citrus hops, sweet malts and light fruit. Lots of well balanced stuff going on in the taste. Citrus hops, pine, very bitter, fruity, dry, long bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, moderate to high carbonation. Very good.

Beautiful and intensive hoppy aroma of citrus and fruits. Small but durable head with decent lacing. Hazy orange body. Intensive hoppy bitterness in taste combined with delicious fruity sweetness.

7% bottle from Rakuten. It poured a great orange honey gold which is my preferred IPA color with a fruity aroma, mint, citrus, tropical fruit but no head. The taste is ascerbic, bitter but with a fruitiness that creeps up in the finish with some graham notes. Pretty good.

Orange yellowish beer with a ridiculously large head. Lots of cloudberry jam on the nose. Refreshingly sweet and fruity aroma. Lots of bitterness. Grassy, grape fruity and strong hops. Crispy mouth feel. Medium body. This is a great IPA. Very very good. Especially the nose and bitterness.

330 ml bottle from a shop in Shibuya. Bottle look intriguing, I wonder if the beer is as outworldish as is the design. Pours flat, literally no head but only a bit of lacing. Aroma... This is something I was waiting for - rich hop aroma, herbal, floral, citrus, tropical fruits. Nice! Taste comes in in different layers, starting out a bit soft and round, developing into biting bitterness and finally mellowing down to a sweetish-dry bitter finish. Body is surprisingly light and the hop bitterness feels somewhat thin, otherwise - thumbs up!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle. Hazy orange colour, huge frothy head. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus and tropical fruits, and floral hops. The flavour is grapefruity, dryish hoppy, with a little caramel malt in the background along with notes of tropical fruits. A very nice ’hop bomb’.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden orange, frothy head. Floral hoppy aroma with citrus and notes of more fruit. Crisp mouthfeel, a light body, a little lively carbonation, some sharp sweetness suddenly passing into plenty of bitterness in the finish. Okay beer but not out of this world.
