COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Giocosa IPA!

E’ una black I.P.A. nera da 6,8% alc.vol. e 60 IBU di amaro, a tutti gli effetti una India Pale Ale con luppoli americani e aromi balsamici e fruttati, ma con impiego anche di malti scuri torrefatti, che donano alla birra il carattere “black”. L’amaro felice di un due di picche!

Il 2 di picche è quello che ci si è presi da una ragazza il giorno prima di decidere il nome… Due di picche è infondo quello che vale questa birra! :-)
Prodotta tutto l’anno.

Bottled. Pours deep brown with anaverage beige head. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and bitter. Aroma of slightly roasted malt, citrus and chocolate. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice BIPA. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Skinnyviking (8224) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2015
33 cl. bottle at home. Meium high creamy and long lasting light brown head. Black body. Solid roasted malt caramel coffee aroma. Powerful roasted malt caramel coffee flavor with a good deal of hops bitterness. Low carbonation, long dry finish. Alcohol wll hidden. Of course there is a lot of hops in this beer but I like the fact that the malt is equally dominant and that the balance of the beer is not spoiled by too much alcohol . Nice surprise.

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 29.08.15. Ebony. Pale, brown head and lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine and vanilla. Taste of roasted barley, dark chocolate, vanilla and bitter grapefruit. A bit thin mouthfeel.

Holmen1 (4126) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2015
Flaske fra Kihoskh, delt med Ovesen på Holmens aktivitetsdag: brunsvart med fint beige skum. Aroma: furunål, grapefrukt og kaffe/røstet malt. Smaken likeledes, og den er lekkert balansert. Slank, og med avrundet bitterhet i ettersmaken. Raske leker (lekre saker).

TorbenJensen (1408) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2015
Beautiful light brown foam that lasts. Lovely hoppy aroma. The taste is initially very hoppy with pine needles and grapefruit as the main theme. In the aftertaste felt a little dark chocolate, but it’s the hops that have taken over in this beer. Its soft carbonation leads to a delicate, but hoppy ale that tastes great. Conclusion: Tasty, very hoppy, but delicate Black IPA.

mircoas (268) - ITALY - AUG 23, 2015
33cl @ bottle. Ipa scura, aroma ottimo, bell’aspetto. Amaro forse un po’ eccessivo ma alta bevibilità. Da riprovare.

olsvammel (4945) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle from Kihoskh in Copenhagen. Hoppy smell with grapefruit and pine but also dark malts, chocolate and so on. Similar taste. The hops drives the car but there are some dark malts in the backseat.
