2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Buskers Pub. Ambrata, leggermente torbida, schiuma abbondante e discretamente persistente. Al naso manca di freschezza, note di malto e luppolo, terrose ed erbacee. In bocca è un minestrone di malto e luppolo, la classica mappazza che stanca già alla prima sorsata. Corpo medio, carbonazione elevata. Not my cup of tea.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice dark orange color with big fluffy head. Sweet fruits, citrus, orange, tangerine, bready, caramel malts, not so much pines, just a hint. A bit weirdly boozy later. Taste is sweetly fruity, toasty malt body, but not too intense, pines, honey, with a delightful bitter finish. Low carbonation, smooth. A good one, very easily drinkable, but a tad too sweet maybe...

Bought a chilled bomber while out running errands. By the time I got home, it had warmed up a bit. This was a good thing, as it allowed the aroma and taste to develop that I might have missed were I to drink it chilled. Nice bready aroma, with some yeast and citrus. Whatever ratio of hops was used, it was spot on; the taste had a marvelous complexity which hid the alcohol very well. Silky mouthfeel and a pleasant finish.

Bottle. Vibrant cloudy amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly hopped and the flavour is fairly deeply hopped with a great degree of bitterness and yeasty floralness. Overall a nice strongly flavoured IPA.

Pours with a dark orange colour and an average size white foamy head. Herbal and grainy aroma but very subtle. Also herbal and grainy in the taste with a light sweetness and a nice medium-high bitterness. Extraordinary good palate, low carbonation and a long bitter after taste. It’s one if the best IPA’s that I’ve tried in the last years. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Fruity and resinous, hoppy aroma, notes of orange, orange zest, tangerine, grapefruit, passion fruit. Taste is initially bitter hoppy, slightly muggy caramel malty with bitter almond touch, some resin, eventually in the last third more fruity and citrusy hoppy, notes of lemon and passion fruit,; in the finish again slightly muggy, hints of sticking-plaster. Inharmonious, some off-flavours, slightly sugary (sugar powder). Not playing Champions League.

Draft at Eulogy. Hazy bright orange copper pour that started with several tufts of big-bubble off-white foam that disappeared quickly. Fragrant IPA. Juicy amber red fruits and earthy resiny, floral herbal hops. Blood oranges. Plums. Cactus pear. Candy apples. Hoppy spice.

Rusty Bucket, Dayton, draft. Nearly perfect IPA, but missing a head and lacing, maybe due to the pour and glass. Dark orange/yellow and cloudy (as it should be). Moderately bitter, hoppy and grapefruity. Great palate and aftertaste. It's good!
