Alla spina. Davvero una bella sorpresa questa IPA, colore ambrato con una schiuma fine e persistente, al naso salta subito il luppolo e varie note agrumate, in bocca si sente l’amaro che però non è mai invadente. Corpo medio con una bassa carbonazione.

Bottle @ home. Giallo dorato, velata. Schiuma bianca fine e persistente. Aroma agrumato e resinoso. Scorza di limone, erbe aromatiche,resina. Gusto abboccato all’ingresso, maltato, fruttato di agrumi. Abbastanza amaro, ma ben equilibrato. Finale lungo, lievemente acido. Molto dissetante. Di buon corpo, poco calda, carbonatazione intensa. Equilibrata, ed armonica

Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy golden body with a thick white head. Lively carbonation. Great lacing. Aroma of mandarin, tonic water, vine tomatoes, chalk and lemon. Flavour of cat litter, washing powder, lemongrass and musty citrus. Dry finish. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. I bought this without realising it was hopped with Sorachi Ace...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My Bottom Line:
Gorgeous flowers bloom within this IPA, stuck to pink grapefruit rinds, led by soft prickling to a bitter finish built by white peppercorn spiciness and green resins.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the hazy amber.
-The hop presence is relentless yet not exaggeratingly intense.
-Drinkability is relatively high.
-Carbonation feels natural, which helps the slender mouthfeel.
-All flavours are in unison. A beautiful brew when in the mood for clearly expressed New World hops!

Draft. Nice citruz fruit notes with some orange peal, petals, and fresh grass. Medium body with a nice clean dry finish. I really like this IPA because it offers something very complex and yet still features the hops. Great beer.

On tap at The Trappist. Pours cloudy amber with a thick off-white head and a funky hop aroma. There is a full-bodied caramel malt flavor with a pretty bitter hop finish. Tasty and refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Haand Festival -14. A small, off-white head sits on top of a hazy, golden colored body. The aroma is piney and resiny, with a touch of citrusy peel. Not much malts, and in general a bit weak. The flavor is bitter and hop forward, with pine cones, resins and some orange zest, a touch of alcohol too actually. And some malty sweetness. It’s full-bodied and quite dry on the palate, finishing with a lasting citrusy and bitter flavor. Sort of one-dimensional this one, but really nice anyway. 140523
