3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
300ml borwn bottle. Dark gold pour, hazy. Creamy white cap, a few fingers thick. Some good clingy lines of lacing in the glass. Sweet nose, big malt, tropical fruitiness. Taste, sweet malts, fruity hops with notes of tropical fruit and grape. Ends with grapefruit and tangerines. Alcohol is not well hidden. Medium bitter. Big thick body, mild carbonation. Pretty heavy handed and sweet, yet enough hoppy enough to keep me drinking it.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Clamorosa IPA fruttata, caramellata e luppolata all’inverosimile. Unisce alla perfezione le tre caratteristiche emblematiche dello stile in un fantastico abbraccio dolce (zucchero caramellato e albicocche) e amaro (luppolo, luppolo, luppolo!). Corposa, liquorosa, clamorosa. Epica!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Hazy amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with caramel, treacle-toffee, crisp-bread, citrus, orange peel, lychee, grapefruit and some boozy aromas. Malty, fruity, vinous taste with notes of caramel, crisp-bread, orange peel, grapefruit, burnt rubber, dried apricots and a heavy citric, resiny bitterness in a finish with a certain alcohol glow. Full body, fairly sweet. Some of the hops get lost in the heavy malt character, but it’s still quite bitter. Quite sweet and boozy, so it’s not really in perfect balance, but quite enjoyable in moderate doses. Nice one.

Into a teku showing half a finger of clean white foam and dark honey. Low filtration.
The nose shows a lot of sweet caramel malts with some faint hints of mango and pineapple.
The palate is full bodied and lightly carbonated. Mostly malt on the attack. Some tropical hops on the finish but faint.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Sensoric glass. Deep amber, hazy with medium, white, semi-densed head. Medicore lacing and head retention. Strong malty, mainly caramle aroma with some booze in the background. Medium to high piney and resinous aroma, light tropical fruits notes. Taste is medium bitter in the beginning, but after a while it opens and becomes quite strong. It’s countepunched with sweet caramel flavours. Medium to full body, sticky texture, medium carbonation, finish is semi-sweet with bitter hoppy accents. In general not my best type od IIPA - heavy malty beer with strong hoppy bitterness. But still good and balanced IIPA.
