Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - AUG 9, 2012
Quasi scura, tanta schiuma, fine ma poco persistente! Aroma esplosivo di agrumi e luppolo! I bocca tanto luppolo e poco malto! Amara, secca, amara amara e ancora secca per chiudere! Rinfrescante con un retrogusto secco e amaro e con una persistente secchezza! Buonissima!!!

fiulijn (14551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle from Birratrovo, como
Hazy dark amber color; medium-sized creamy head. Wonderful perfumed aroma, fruity hops (Cascade, Amarillo?), light cheese. Medium body structure, dark caramel and toffee flavor, with strong bitterness, moderately resiny, lightly fruity; there is an evident yeast presence, as noted in the aroma, adding some pleasant complexity and creating a rather harsh palate. Long final. It reminds me some Swedish (good) IPA. Very pleasant.

77ships (3771) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2012
25 cl. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas: a very dark amber fox red with a huge & very creamy head, smell is mellow fruity grapefruit & berries, definitely hops but no regular hop bitterness here that you would expect from an IPA, taste is sweet with fruity grapefruit & berries, once again definitely hops but very mellowed out, aftertaste carries like the mellowest hop bitterness ever, hint mango, strong dominating presence of creamy thick malts, slight caramel, sweet herbs, very creamy & sessionable but an IPA without the harsh edge seems a bit weird to me now

Quack-Duck (7911) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2010
bottle from bierkompass. Hazy amber-golden colour, large off-white head. Lovely aromatic hoppy nose. Rather shy malty base, making way for loads of aromatic hops with a slightly citrusy, buit mainly resiny character, slightly grassy. The hop flavours have a big impact because there is only a shy malty base to complement and balance off this delicious hoppy bitterness. A pleasure, a really delicious beer.

DrStrangelove (75) - ITALY - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle. Hazy amber reddish with an average, frothy, mostly lasting off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, flowers, stonefruits, hops, raspberry, liquorice, resin, grapefruit. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter, aromatic and herbal. Well balanced. Finish is moderate hoppy bitter. Nice!

mkel07 (3387) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2013
750ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Great label on the bottle and equally good beer inside the bottle. The flavour is not as good as the aroma or appearance but it is still good.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - FEB 3, 2010
Ottima IPA del nuovo Toccalmatto, consigliata da Roberto del Duca, bevuta insieme a petto di pollo al curry con funghi e parmigiano, serata bellissima. Splendido aroma di luppoli freschi; nonostante il tipico resinoso dei luppoli USA non strina con l’amaro anzi è piuttosto aromatica, suggestiva, delicata, uno splendore.

Bottle from Decanter, Milan. Shared at Slothez’s gaff. Dark amber pour with a slight haze and a good sized and lingering off white head. Nice fragrant hoppy nose. Caramel malts, summer fruit and grassy hops in the flavour. Hoppage relatively understated. A really pleasant and drinkable IPA. Love the label too.
