3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle from Wild Hops served in a snifter. Pours a dark hazy orange with a small non-persistent off white head. Powerful aroma of tropical fruits, grapefuit, mango, light caramel malts and pine needles. Mild alchool perception. Strong bitterness and resiny presence, but not at all overwhelming. The alchool is well hidden. Long bitter aftertaste. Medium body, medium carbonation and creamy texture. Textbook example of a DIPA, very nice!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como; bb 310514 L2013
Cloudy light amber color with medium sized creamy head. The aroma is only partially fruity, it’s mostly earthy, animal; there are also some soft hop resins. Good body strength; the malt flavor has accents of caramel and toffee, and it’s moderately sweet; strong bitterness, nothing close to the theoretical 409 IBU, but the hop is tired, not able to propose freshness; there is some orange jam; the hop resins tickle the tongue in the long final.
A good beer overall, but it seems an exercise that didn’t get to the highest result.
