4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottiglia comprata alla Torre del Luppolo (Pisa, Italy), Imperial IPA in pieno stile, al naso molto erbacea e resinosa, in bocca un corpo importante e ben equilibrato, maltoso che chiude con una importante amaro dato dall’abbondanz adel luppolo. Nonostante la gradazione si beve benissimo!!!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Head: white and thick, as all as clouds if the temperature is right.
Aroma: vresh pine, fresh grass, fresh hops,
Colour: pale golden, slightly hazy
Taste: sweet at first, then slowly creeping towards bitter pine...very good balance
Palate: medium body, medium carbonation, nice slowly developing bitterness, a bit silky texture and a spectacular bitter finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a murky, yellow amber, with noticeable tiny bits floating in the glass. Very thin, rapidly dissipating white head.
Aromas are explosive, featuring sour grapefruit, lemon drops, and grass.
Palate is fairly crisp and clean and yet still leaning towards a medium body.
Tastes are in a word, delicious. Citrus, lemon, grapefruit, and a slight sweetness.
Overall, don’t let the light colouring fool you. This is a beer full of powerful aromas, and powerful tastes. And at 7.4% abv it’s just plain powerful. A highly quaffable beer that you will have to force yourself to sip. Would not hesitate to purchase this one again.

500ml bottle served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a pale yellow color, forming a big and bubbled white head. Great retention and tons of lingering and soapy lacings left in the glass
S: Great notes of tropical fruits and pine. Watermelon, grapefruit, pine, sweet pale grains and earthy yeasts
T: Follows the nose. Slightly sweet upfront. Notes of watermelon, grapefruits, pine. Quite smooth with a medium but very pleasant bitterness in the end. A bit earthy and bready. Pale Ale style yeasts. Very light to a 7.4% ABV, no sign of alcohol
M: Medium and creamy body. Medium carbonation. Sweet pale malts + pine and citrus fruits in the aftertaste. However, its bitterness is not persistent
O: Excellent drinkability. Great British IPA with some American character

Pours light orange a bit cloudy with a minimal head. Fruity aroma. Bitter ending. Surprisingly full body for the light colour. Tilted towards caramel. Fresh for an imperial IPA. Decent Imperial.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2014 Couleur jaune trouble, beaucoup de résidus en suspension, bonne mousse blanche. Super nez houbloné fruité, malté sucré, franchement j’ai l’impression d’avoir une bonne creme aux oeufs, cremeuse, beurrée, maltée, nappée de fruits jaunes bien murs et fruits exotiques, super! Gout houblonné fruité avec une palette, fruits jaunes, resine, litchee, agrumes, exotique, mangue, abricots, pin... bien complexe mais bien ronde en bouche, légère et buvable. Super!
Personellement c’est le type que j’adore dans une IPA

Bottled 50cl. Purchased in Drinks of the World in Zürich. Remarkably pale appearance. Biscuity pale malts and resinous hops throughout. My type of IPA.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle. BBE 13.08.15 Aroma of pines, iron, brie cheese and old socks. Looks like a premum lager - golden with a thick, creamy head and load os carbonation. Sweet and hoppy, yet bitter. Sweetness prevails. Slightly off-puting taste of alcohol and poridge. Fruity and with a loads of citrus fruit. Malt is also strong in aroma and taste. Smooth texture. Medium body. Mixed feelings with this one - parts of it I love, and parts of it I really do not like. I doubt that I will go for another bottle. If on tap - maybe.
