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.

TimE (3092) - 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.

BrunoSanchez (71) - Fermo, ITALY - MAY 13, 2014
Magnifica!!! eccelente Double IPA colore oro con schiuma bianca pannosa e consistente. Al naso intenso aroma di luppolo resinoso molto interessante. In bocca essendo una birra del suo genere risulta molto beverina grazie al magnifico equilibrio tra amaro, dolce e sensazione alcolica. Lunga persistenza retronassale ed un corpo medio molto giusto. In poche parole... un capolavoro imperdibile! I miei complimenti al birrificio Menaresta che a mio parere è uno dei grandi dell’Italia birraia! Bevuta alla spina nella Birroteca Vaffalluppolo di Fermo (Italia)

Profumi intensi e penetranti, erbaceo e malto. Colore ambarto, schima grossolana. Corpo pieno, erbaceo e malto al palato. Alcolicità presente ma non fastidiosa. Amaro deciso.

Ragnampiza (333) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAR 1, 2014
330 ml bottle from ArtigianBeer, served in a nonic pint glass. Sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with a small off-white head. Powerful and balsamic aroma of dank resiny hops, tons of tropical fruits, citrus and lemon peel, pine needles and just a hint of sweet caramel. Gloriously juicy in the mouth, great bitterness and dryness. The alchool is well masked even though it can be "felt", alongside a sticky light sweetness. Resninous and hoppy aftertaste, as expected. Average carbonation, medium body and creamy texture. Dangerous beer, I could easily chug 3 or 4 pints in a row! Easily on of the best DIPA currently made in Italy.
