JaKeAFC (545) - ITALY - DEC 23, 2012
3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl bottle at a local pub, 8€.
Light orange-amber color, hazed, small but fine and incredibly persistent head.
Very perfumed on the nose, lots of orange peel and american hops.
Aroma is pure IPA, quite unexpectedly, lots of grapefruit, bitter orange peel, dried apricots and some caramel, soft malts and a soapy tone, all wrapped by a notable american hop counterpart.
Taste is somewhat fruity but still firmly bitter, tasty, smooth on the palate. Finish is aromatic, long enough.
Body is medium carbonation extremely low.
A very good one, a nice surprise from an Italian product.
