Dark golden, white head. Aroma is intense hops. Sorachi ace dominating. very nice IPA, dry yet balanced. On a critical side l’ve got a light mushroomy-earthy aftertaste which I’m not fond of.

Keg at Borefts beer festival day 1 26/09/2014. Bright golden coloured pour with a nice sticky white head. Aroma is floral citrus lemon, lemon surbert. Flavour is nice sorachi like hop with coconut and floral citrus, and a bit of berry. Lovely. Palate is semi sticky on the tongue with moderate carbonation. Lingering nice tropical fruit pineapple and lychee. Really good stuff.

(Cask) 500 ml at Birra+. Dark gold/light orange, very hazy, with a big, fluffy and persistent off white head. Lovely and fresh hoppy nose, lots of spicy and resinous pine needles. A hint of citrus, white grapes and lemon as well. Very creamy and as expected juicy mouthfeel, zesty and grapefruity taste. The bitterness is not so huge but perfectly integrated. Subtle pale malts and caramel in the end. The aftertaste really lingers forever, I was still burping juicy hop notes an hour later! It feels also lighter and easier to drink compared to the keg or bottle version. Soft carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Already one of my favourites Italian made IPAs, even better on cask. Wonderful.

at Craft Beer Fest Vienna. hazy orange, white foam. fruity smell of maracuja, strawberry and mango. medium body. sweetness and bitterness are well integrated. on the finish a bubbly, fruity taste stays. temporary taste of unripe papaya, almost a bit unpleasant, fortunatly the taste doesnt last. good acidity though.

WOW!!!!!! Vorrei fermarmi a queste sole tre lettere tanto è complessa (nonchè perfetta) questa IPA. Infatti a differenza delle classiche IPA, al naso grazie all abbondante dry hopping (non a caso zona cesarini ad indicare l impiego in fase finale dei luppoli) esplodono note di frutti tropicali, citrici, ma anche resinosi, insomma una esplosione di note piecevoli e tendenti al dolciastro in piena contrapposizione con l amaro deciso, ma mai invadente, apprezzabile al palato. Corpo importante a sostenere il tutto!!!

UPDATED: APR 26, 2015 75cl bott. in teku. Pours a moderate white head, quite dense and cappuccino like (lovely tiny bubbles rising); nice hazy orange/amber uniform colour; looks awesome. Smells super fruity, with a consistent malt background, fresh juicy, floral, tropical, peach, mango, melon, ... Wow, awesome fruity hops !! Tastes fruits, caramel, biscuity, orange citrus, pine; initial moderate sweetness which progressively mixes and leaves space to a medium+ bitterness; grass, resin and fresh earthy semi-dry finish. Pleasant average carbonation, medium bodied, slick texture. Top quality brew, super smooth and drinkable. Love the hints of minty freshness from the Sorachi Ace...and the aromas of those Pacific hops. Drink this if you haven’t already! Probably with the ReAle extra on 2nd place, this is the absolute best Italian IPA.
---UPDATE--- 26/04/15. Got a really fresh 75cl sample from the brewery (2 weeks bottled). Again WOW. The aroma and nose in this brew are just stunning °_°
