jcos (1522) - Maryland, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle on November 13, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark maroon with light white head.
Aroma: Aroma of light caramel.
Taste: Nice amount of bitterness, lots of caramel malt, faint pine.
Palate:Medium body, slightly sticky, faint carbonation, lingering aftertaste.

Summary: Almost reads more like a "imperial red" IPA than an IPA. Which is okay, cause I enjoy that.

Ragnampiza (342) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 9, 2014
330 ml bottle from BG Birra, served in a nonic half pint glass. Typical sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with a a nice, creamy, forever lasting white head. Great lacing. Not the cleanest aroma, a hint of dust and yeast, obviously together with a nice bouquet of citrus, tropical fruits, a hint of pine resin and caramel malts. Quite harsh upfront, not because of the bitterness, which is actually kinda moderate, but because of a boozy and warming sensation. Light astringency, solid malt backbone (more biscuit than caramel), slightly sticky, pleasent fruity aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, slightly creamy texture. I had 10+% beers where the alchool was more hidden, so that’s probably the biggest fault in this beer, imho. So so.

Russo (1650) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 10, 2014
Hazy dark amber color with a small off-white head that keeps a nice lacing for long time. Aroma is hoppy and malty, hints of fruits like apple and grapes. Flavor is like aroma but more sweet. Low carbonation and full bodied with a nice bitter hoppy finish.

Bottle. Dark amber body, medium offwhite head. Aroma of caramel and strong grassy hops, pine and malt. Taste is strong bitter with grass, grain, lemon. Quite sweet finish with a syryp and pine aftertaste. Pretty well hidden alcohol.

Firefly54 (228) - - JAN 28, 2014
Cloudy orange colour, small white head. Aroma - mainly dominated by malt sweetness, a little boozy, marmalade, I’m getting a raisin note? Touch of pine and some earthy woodiness. Taste - a little sweet, mostly orange from the amarillo, not getting much chinook in the spicy end of things. Soft bitterness, bordering on being a little too sweet. It’s ok but a little sickly.

mile (2880) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate to full malty and caramel sweetish aroma with light bread, light fruitiness, light grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, caramel and light fruitiness, light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, caramel and faint fruitiness, some grapefruit hoppyness. Caramel sweetish DIPA - lacks the hoppyness.

MarcoDL (2057) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2013
Nice hoppy beer, malty and fruity. Yet, the TRIPA and the IPA from Emelisse are better. This one stands a bit in between.
