UPDATED: JUN 1, 2013 Bottle from Craft Beer Co. Pours bright orange with a small, dense white head lasting for the duration. Nose is very punchy. Loads of orange, lemon, mango, apricot and passionfruit. Very tropical and fruit driven. Taste shows all the sweet, tropical driven fruits with a light creaminess to the palate. Quite a bit of apricot in the taste and almost sticky sweet. Works well with light bitterness on the finish. Good beer indeed

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como; bottled 19.03.2013 bb 19.07.2013, 2 months old
Hazy golden to amber color, with generous head. Very nice aroma, powerful, with citrus fruits, lemon, and hop resins; also a touch of spicy yeast, a bit feety. The mouthfeel is very dry; with some malt flavor, there is a strong hopping, both resiny and fruity (bitter oranges and some lemon); the yeast character is strong too.
Pleasant, but without the fresh character that I would like, and a bit unclean.
