Imbarazzante IPA!

E’ una double I.P.A. ambrata da 7,5% alc.vol. e 90 IBU di amaro!, ma con un bel equilibrio fra malto, luppolo e alcool. La luppolatura abbondante, con una miscela di luppoli americani (usati sia in cottura che in dry-hopping), dona alla birra aromi floreali, fruttati e balsamici. Più nessuna ignoranza ammessa in fatto di luppolo!

22 è la posizione in cui si classificò questa birra anni fa in un concorso per homebrewers (su 23 iscritti!): vergogna! :-)

Disponibile da ottobre a maggio. Nei mesi estivi è sostituita da Verguenza Summer.

Ottima double IPA, dall’odore intenso, schiuma compatta e di buona persistenza, gusto gradevolissimo nonostante lo stile, al gusto sprigiona un’armonia equilibrata dei vari luppoli impiegati con sapienza. Persistenza prolungata ma non eccessiva. un difetto è impresa ardua trovarlo. Al momento dietro solo alla Crooked Moon di Mikkeller. E scusate se è poco!

Bottle at Ma Che Siete Venuti A Fa. Hazy orange with an average white head. Toasted malt and peachy aroma. Peachy flavour with some pineapple and citrus also. Cleaner than a lot of Italian IPA’s, nice.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - JUL 20, 2014
Very continental take on the DIPA. More balanced and less hop centtric. Still pretty big IBUs but a lack of nuance and panache hurts this. Solid, but could be any number of beers on the wall.

shoulderbroken (2179) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is tropical, mango, hops. Taste is good, easily drinkable. Fruity with a bit of a kick. Nice maltiness.

TimE (3333) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 13, 2014
Hazy golden color. Very clean malty nose with moderate hoppiness. Decent malty backbone, but hop character isn’t so prevelant. Decent rounded beer, but not uber interesting.
