Buona ipa, imbottigliata il 25 08 14. Aroma balsamico, con tanto pinoned un po’ di resina. Sapore di caramello,non è freschissima,ma si sente anche il luppolo e gli aghi di pino. Buona bevivilitá, corpo medio, tessitura leggera. Buona ipa

DrunkSanta410 (483) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours clear copper, thin white head, dissipates into a thin white lace. Aroma is piney hops, earthy, a bit of toasted malts. Taste is nice piney hops, grapefruit peel bitterness, faint sweetness and caramel malts. Well balanced, great IPA bitterness that lingers. Medium body, high carbonation. Fantastic IPA, good price point and pretty readily available. What’s not to like?

AndresTM (350) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2015
A burnt orange drink reeking of fruity, citrusy hops, strawberry preserves, apricots, pine, grapefruit, orange peel, and rosemary crackers. Oily mouthfeel, with a medium body and tame but sustained carbonation. The taste is bitter, initially fruit sweet, but leaning dry and salty towards the end. The aftertaste is dry, herbal, and earthy. It commands your attention without being aggressive and runs a nice spectrum of hop flavors. Delightful.

Cloudy light amber color. Fruity and hoppy aroma. A somewhat sweet and tart hoppy taste. Only a little bit of a hoppy aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
