Bottle at home. Has a hazy dark amber colour with a big light beige bumpy head. Malty aroma of hay, grassy hops and pine. Well-balanced. The malty flavour reflects the aroma with the addition of rye bread and spices. Nice. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. Balanced and rich IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color arancio carico e lievemente torbido con un cappello di saponosa schiuma bianca. Aroma luppolato e fruttato, sentori di mango, mela verde e pompelmo rosa; gusto fruttato e luppolatissimo, amaro deciso, rotondo e persistente. Corpo ed effervescenza abbondanti per una IPA classica, me la ricordo ottima e sono curiosissimo di riprovarla!
