IlGagario (104) - Modena, ITALY - APR 8, 2016
Colore giallo/arancio, da nebuloso a torbido, con copiosi sedimenti sul fondo. Testa abbastanza alta, soapy, fragile e poco persistente. Ottimo olfatto di luppolo fruttato, malto e lievito. Aroma ben luppolato sapido e fruttato, zucchero e note di marmellata, lievito, malto efficiente, crespato da pesanti note di alcool. Carbonazione soffice, attiva e mediamente piccante. Gusto leggermente dolce di malto, poi amaro da medio a pieno, crespo e leggermente croccante. Corpo da medio a pieno, trama oleosa. Finale abbastanza prolungato, amaro erbaceo in crescendo. Una buona imperial ipa italiana, dove si avvertono chiaramente gli elementi di casa Dada (soprattutto sul versante malto), caratterizzata da un seducente ed invitante naso, però nel complesso strabordante d’alcool, che non è così ben bilanciato arrivando a coprire un pelo troppo, sacrificando in parte le prospettive aromatiche.

Diabobale (434) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - FEB 11, 2016
Dal colore arancio abbastanza opalescente con lievi riflessi dorati, con schiuma bianca e a grana grossa, non abbondante e dalla discreta persistenza, questa imperial ipa sprigiona forti note agrumate (pompelmo, arancia e mandarino) con lievi note tropicali (litchi) e fruttati (pesca). In bocca ha un corpo sopra la media, poco carbonata. Tanta arancia amara al palato, con lievi note citriche, con amaro pronunciato fin da subito che vira sul resinoso sul finale. La secchezza non è il suo forte, con residui dolciastri che restano sulle labbra e un leggero tono astringente finale.

Bov (11500) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 17, 2015
courtesy of fiulijn - hazy reddish-orange beer without foam; aroma of ripe fruity, piney hops; vinous; notes of toffee; full-bodied, solid carbonation; some sweetness and hightly bitter; light residual sweetness and long piney, resiney and fruity hoppy tones in the finish - 409 IBU ? I would have guessed only 361 ...

Edorski (6) - Pistoia, ITALY - OCT 6, 2015 does not count
With very big bitter smell in nose, that beer in mouth, is very strong. The 9.4% vol alc. shows up at the end of the beer, but the bitter feeling are in all mouth for long time. Very good job.

Kauge (1321) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 21, 2015
Tap at Luppolo 12 in Rome. Translucent, slightly coppery amber with a big light-light beige, thickly lacing and well retaining head. Super fresh tropical fruits, jam and marmalade, resin on the nose. Tastes full and balanced, not at all veering towards too bitter or too sweet. Fulfilling, thick, marmalady in the midpoint, strong resiny bitter and slightly alcoholic in the finish. Medium body, thin crisp carbonation. Gets a bit too flat too soon but otherwise very-very nice. Wouldn’t guess it to be a whopping 9.3% - more like 7-8.

rlgk (16898) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle at Chris and Ruth’s place in London. Clear golden beer with a small offwhite head. Hoppy floral aroma, fruity, grapes, some caramel. Hoppy citrus flavor, grassy, hay, floral, caramel, some grapes.

harrisoni (16706) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle from GBBF 2015 and drunk at home. Russet hazy colour lasting beige head. Slightly over the top herbal aroma, getting on the way too being just too intense and a little on the Radox shower gel side. So not a great aroma. Biggish sweetish in the mouth. Then harsh hops on the finish. Bits of it are good but there is that pine fresh edge that is just too much for me. I don’t hate it, but that pine fresh flavour is just overpowering.

TEJA (2077) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2015
Sampled at Moeder Lambic, Brussels. No head. Light clowdy golden color. Marvelous complex hop aroma ( simco and ammarillo). Balanced sweet caramell and big hop taste and bitternes is balanced very well by a big body.
