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.

33 cl (fresh from brewery) and Tap. Pours an average, thick and white head; colour is a hazy golden / yellow. Beautiful feelings from the nose: fresh and pungent, tropical, very fruity, pineapple, zesty aroma; orange and yellow fruits coming from the hops. Tastes fruity, citrusy, grassy, and predominated by the hops notes; initial sweet fruitiness, followed by a medium and persistent bitter presence. Quite lively carbonation (from the bottle), medium bodied, tasty and long finish. Extremly refreshing, awesome aroma, together with the white widow (which derives from this) a really nice IPA from Menaresta

In bottiglia. Colore giallo dorato con schiuma abbast persistente. Aromi intensi di erbaceo e floreale che coprono velocemente un leggero caramello. Al palato scorre veloce e pericolosa lasciando una scia di tropicale intensa e prolungata

Sampled from bottle @ ChrisO after GBBF day 3. Slightly unclear lightly pale yellow color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, lightly hops, lightly grassy, quite bitter. Hmm not really a big fan of this one. It’s decent though.

Good Italian beer. Wouldn't buy this again if it comes down to taste an "old" beer or test a new one.

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!
