E’ parecchio strana ma concordo che risulta una delle IPA più bilanciate e tranquille di revelation cat

33cl bottle courtesy of Alex. Slowly gushing upon opening. It pours a clear deep golden / orange colour with a large white head. Surprisingly clear from sediments for being a gusher, good. Aroma evolves over time. Initially fresh and fruity with some citrus notes and loads of apricots. Just a tiny amount of piny hops in there to counter balance the lingering sweetness from the malty backbone, which you can already feel. After few minutes, once warmed up a bit, aroma has turned more towards the malts with notes of nutmeg, pumpkin and a little spiciness (almost clove). Taste follows the same evolution, being extremely refreshing initially, with truckloads of fruity hops on a decent malt backbone to avoid this becoming uber-bitter. Once warmed up for a few minutes, taste as well evolves towards a more rounded and sweet-ish profile, with again pumpkin and spices, and a fresh bouquet of violets and roses. The alcohol is very well hidden and does not factor into your tasting experience at all. Body has a creamy texture to it and carbonation is quite high initially, needs a good swirl! Overall, definitely a very good fresh hop IPA where you can feel the attention that has gone in creating a solid malt backbone to sustain the massive amount of hops. Curious note: when tasted again after almost 2 months (i.e. fresh hops starting to fade) it really resembled a nicely hopped up Belgian blond ale once warmed up. Either way a great beer. It’s just a matter of expectations!

Bottle shared at the Craft Beer Co. - Clerkenwell, London Holiday Tasting - thanks to Steve, I think. Pours hazy gold with a fine, white cream head. Big grassy hop nose, some mango and grapefruit. Light to medium sweet flavor with dry grass, pale malts. Medium bodied with lively, massaging carbonation. Lightly resinous, grassy finish, some dry grapefruit and other citrus, some spicy pine. Not bad.

Bottle at tasting, thanks Mark. Blond/orange colour, white bubbly small head. Aroma is strong, hoppy, bit rough, big astringency. Taste is nice enough, bit fruity, lots of bitterness, bit grainy at the end. Alright, but preferred the others.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle. Hazy orange color with minimal head. This is almost murky looking. Light aroma that doesn’t have much going on. Maybe some lemon. Sweet tasting with a little bit of lemon and grass. The second sip was much better than the first. Not my cup of tea.

TimE (3365) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 13, 2013
Hazy amber golden color. Frothy white head. Almost plastic, cotton candy, creamy nose. Spicy hops, a bit of plastic in the mouth. A bit too phenolic, but OK. Medium body. Moderately bitter. So-so.

Bottle provided by Travlr. Thanks, Gene! Poured a clear yellow color with a wispy white head. Aroma was a touch herbal, with some citrus and sweet malts. Flavor was pretty clean - herbal malts, citrus and some sweetness. Really liked the label design on this one.
