COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Festosa IPA!

E’ una double I.P.A. dorata carica da 8,0% alc.vol. e 90 IBU di amaro! Versione natalizia della 22 La Verguenza, amara e profumatissima, con note di agrume, frutta esotica e pesca sciroppata, ha una gradazione alcolica più sostenuta rispetto alla versione “standard”, ma risulta, grazie all’oculata attenuazione, ancora più secca e facile da bere! Hoppy Christmas!

E viene natale a portare un regalo al bravo birraio: l’ennesima pinta!

Kosmokrator (849) - - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2015 Alla spina. Color oro intenso, schiuma bianca persistente. Avvolgenti sentori di agrumi, luppoli e frutta esotica. Gusto amarognolo e luppolato, parzialmente resinoso, accompagnato da più lievi note fruttate; retrogusto asciutto, amaro e soddisfacente. Buon corpo, buona persistenza e retrogusto pulito, una IPA "classica" ma intensa!

Birra bevuto alla spina, di un bel colore ambrato leggermente sullo scuro e sul torbido, all’olfatto buon profumo di spezie, con gusto molto deciso e amarognolo...

brianza_ale (203) - ITALY - JAN 2, 2016
33cl bottle, edition 2015 "Il Solito Regalo! La Verguenza Double IPA XMAS". Pours a very creamy and persistent small to medium head; nice and vivid orange to amber colour, hazy. Smells fresh and fruity, big strawberry, cherries, red fruits, honey, resin hoppy background. Tastes christmas candied fruits, lots of berries again, and citrus going towards the end; medium sweetness and bitterness, awesome overall balance, doesn’t feel as 90 IBUs. Medium bodied, silky and smooth. Really nice xmas/red DIPA, which this year really got a nice recipe (as it changes annually). I actually enjoyed this 2015 Xmas version more than the regular one, awesome brew

TommyFi (109) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 29, 2014
Di color giallo carico/ambrato. Al naso si sentono subito luppoli americani, odori di pompelmo, agrume e frutta a pasta gialla matura ed esotica. In bocca è rotonda, si sente subito un bell?amaro da luppolo che ci accompagna fino alla fine del sorso e oltre. Grande persistenza, bel corpo e ottima gasatura. Non si avvertono gli 8 gradi alcolici e si beve benissimo.

Draught. Copper, slightly hazy. Good caramel, pine needles and loads of peaches, stone fruits on nose. Body is soft, fresh. Nicely bittered, no alc comes through even though the highish percentage. Caramel goodness, US hops. Excellent fresh doublsh ipa.
