3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
75 cl bottle @ hotel room, Rome. BBE 13.12.2015.
Pours golden color with a large head. Loads of citric fruits on the aroma, caramel and hops, Sorachi Ace is noticeable. Grapefruits and lime on the flavor, resinous hops and some gooseberries. Bitter palate, medium carbonation, lingering grapefruit finish. I’m not a big fan of SA hop variety but it’s okay in this one. Good but not quite as good as I was expecting.

Aroma has fruity hops and some odd citrus fruit. Also some malty notes and caramel. Flavour has strong lime notes, lemon, some grapefruit and mild caramel notes. Finishes with menthol. Both flavour and aroma contain some unpleasant component (Sorachi Ace?).

Tap at Moeder Lambic, 5th March 15. This is a great one, probably the best Italian IPA I have had. The nose and taste are unusual due the hop combination. It really works well, deep, full flavour, musky, crisp, fruity and delicious. Excellent IPA
