New discovery.. italian beers :) Got this at Moeder Lambic’s Italian beer festival. Pours orange, white foam, slightly cloudy, with a great IPA smell. A nice bitterness and a great taste. Ace!

Look: Huge, fizzy, off-white (light yellow hue) head with medium sized bubbles that breakdown into big ones, leaving a sticky finish. Slow, unequal retention, sticky lacing throughout. Cloudy, dark orange, some particles floating around, can see through tho.

Smell: Ripe is the word. Ripe tropical fruits, ripe lemons. Light honey, hay, green figs and some piss like notes. Yeasty and sharp spicy part. Has this synthetic jelly beans like character, a bit of ripe pineapple and pepper - belgian yeast-like character? Dandelion.

Taste: Light ripe start, light orange, lemon. Continues into light middle, grainy, very light honey and a bit watery middle sweetness. And ends with medium bitterness, old dandelion, hay and light grapefruit. Some sharpness stays in the after.

Mouthfeel: Medium light heavy body, suiting carbonation.

Overall: A strange one, maybe a bad series or just weird. Could argue that it’s a interesting take on an IPA style but it’s not my cup of tea. The light piss side note and watered down taste aren’t what will draw me to buy another one.

Solid IPA. Smooth body, almost like they used some wheat as well. Soft taste of fruits and hops, quite balanced. Very Italian.

dexcansino (446) - Andalucía, SPAIN - AUG 11, 2014
Buena ipa italiana. Un potente olor lupulado, floral, cítrico. Sabor a pomelo, naranja amarga y romero. Bastante amargo y lupulada. Muy repetible.

mansquito (3349) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC 11.2 ounce ($4.50): Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is resin, bits of pine, some malts. For a West Coast style IPA, I really didn’t get that much citrus. Taste is bitter, but not brutally so in any sense. Hops are sharp and a bit on the dry side. Feels almost light given the weight.

Bitter en ruikt naar druiven. Prima als het warm is en wel vrij bitter. Zoete geur zit niet in het bier.

On tap at the BeerTemple. Hazy gold pour with white head, light lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pepper, grapefruit hop, light pine, dank tropical mango - minty notes. Taste is bitter, really hoppy and resinous, well hopped. Palate is med-light bodied with light-med carbonation. Tasty.

Ialy. The first rating from this country. Good reaction about a country that has not his fir up on beer. Brewfist is a good brewing with a welknown owner about beer. The spaceman is not the object that could move you from earth into space world but it is a good product with some basic ale (y) elements. Spicy, grassy and herby enough. Good to taste.
