Summer version of the classic "La Verguenza 22", a normal IPA less in ABV.

Radiosa IPA!
E’ un’american I.P.A. dorata da 6,0% alc.vol. e 60 IBU di amaro! Versione estiva della 22 La Verguenza, ugualmente vergognosa in fatto di luppolo, impiega però gli estrosi luppoli americani per farli incontrare con quelli nobili europei, creando un fresco mix erbaceo ed esotico. Un’onda di refrigerio in un mare di luppolo!

Dopo le fatiche dell’anno scolastico, finalmente l’estate! Anche per un asino birraio… :-)

Disponibile da giugno a settembre.

Stupenda versione della rinomata "Verguenza" un po meno alcolica ma ugualmente acattivante. Colore dorato con schiuma pannosa consistente. Al naso tanto luppolo agrumato e resinoso con note erbacee. In bocca molto ben equilibrata tra amaro ed alcool con un corpo medio leggero. Nel palato si percepiscono sapori di frutta tropicale ed erba fresca con un finale amaro molto lungo e piacebole. Una signora birra contro il caldo!!!

My Bottom Line:
Citrusy fruitiness lies on flowers before resinous bitterness seals in this quenching IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam laces around the hazy pale yellow.
-The citrusy character is remisnicent of starfruit, white grapes and sweetened lemons.
-Malts don’t offer much in the way of flavour, but still build just enough body for the hops to ride on.
-For Quebec, this would be a cousin to Castor Yakima or Trou du Diable Apocalypso. For Italy, this is very similar to the new Vento Forte IPA range.

On tap at Ma Che Siete, Roma.

I love IPA, but this is really amazing! Easy to drink, refreshing, bitter with a soft citrus taste. I really like it. Great!

330 ml bottle from Birra +. Pale orange, quite hazy, with a small, creamy and moderately persistent white head. Fresh and powerful aroma, big citrus and tropical fruits notes, lots of pine, fresh resin, slightly dank and peppery. A hint of flowers and white bread as well. Perfect level of bitterness, long and lingering, very clean hoppy component, some berries like sweetness in the aftertaste. Herbal, slightly spicy and resinous close. Average carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. So so good, it took me less than 2 minutes to kill the bottle.

Hazy blonde ale, thick head. Big mango and orange AmHop aroma. Very rich, piney bitterness, the pale malts only getting a little bit doughy, lingering citrus and resins, and there’s a touch of yeastiness that lends it a little rusticity.

Limpida, di color giallo dorato e con una bella schiuma. Al naso si sente subito un immenso profumo di luppoli americani, in bocca non è neanche troppo amara per i 60 ibu dichiarati. Si beve molto bene e non stanca, l’intento del birraio con l’appellativo "versione summer" credo sia stato proprio questo e, personalmente, l?ho bevuta molto volentieri.

Wolfbass (891) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 22, 2014
Color dorato opalescente con schiuma compatta. Al naso un flebile agrumato. In bocca non mi convince, manca di mordente e lascia il palato quasi senza lasciare traccia, solo un leggero retrogusto amarognolo. Appena sufficiente...

Draught at The Rover, Göteborg. Pale yellow/golden beer with a decent white head. Yeasty floral aroma, rubber notes, herbal, sourish. Hoppy yeasty floral flavor, spicy, sourish, some perfume. Not that good.
