4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A German IPA? Indeed! And near perfect execution also. Beautiful creamy head sits atop an amber body. Hops is the first thing you smell, and definitely the first thing you taste. Unusual for a German brewer, but it’s excellent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ambrata con poca schiuma. Aroma luppolato, abbastanza aromatico.Note agrumate (in piccola parte) frutta tropicale e luppoli tedeschi. Al palato ingresso dolce, poi vira verso canoni più luppolati ma senza eccedere nell’amarezza estrema. Finale non proprio pulito con un retrogusto che non convince del tutto. L’alcol è nascosto in maniera mirabile. Un birrificio che fa del rapporto qualità/prezzo il suo cavallo di battaglia.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Birratrovo, bb 19.12.16
Hazy amber color with medium sized head, short retention. Mild aroma, some cereals, maybe sweet, light honey and light hops. Lean body; cereals flavor with light residual sweetness; strong bitterness, very light fruity presence, mild resins and not much more hop qualities.
Unimpressive, maybe not fresh enough?
