Bang! Had this on tap at Moerder Lambic in Brussels. Asked for something hoppy and the guy smiled and poured my buddy and I some of this. Looked like a nice orangey, opaque IPA with a huge white head. Fantastic floral hoppy flavor. Good bitter start and nice floral finish. Well-done...if I could buy this easily in the USA, it would proudly sit beside my West Coast IPA’s. Nice job, Italy!

On tap. Colore giallo ocra con note verdastre. Schiuma corta di media persistenza. Bouquet etilico, un po’ scarico di fiori, comunque fresco e pungente, solo leggermente citrico, in lontananza agrume. Aroma luppolato, sottilmente saponato e sensazione di cartone. Carbonazione un po’ troppo attiva che rileva difetti di controllo delle astringenze citriche e che nasconde note che l’olfatto prometteva ma la bocca neglette. Poche emozioni, frutta poco valorizzata. Un po’ vuota, con l’alcool troppo in evidenza. Finale destrutturante irrimediabilmente saponato. Non mi è piaciuta.

10/26/2010 1:34:40 AM On tap at Moeder Lambic. Orange bold body with tall head. Nose of hops. Creamy and very nice taste. Lots of hops and pine in there. Oh, so smooth. Italy does great IPA’s.

jcr (2461) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden body with a fizzy white head. Aroma of citrus, orange marmalade, toasted grain, tropical fruit, lemon. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/sticky texture, fizzy carbonation. Fruity taste — orange, lemon, bitter citrus. And kind of a sweet taffy flavor in the background. Fizzy carbonation is right in synch with the balanced bitter/sweet fruit flavors. Exotic and quite enjoyable.

kindly shared by impuritylaw @ bartlebiers cellar clearing tasting; a lot of tropical fruits in aroma, hints of coconut; more coconut in taste, morphing into very ripe and juicy pineapple, balanced by just the right level of bitterness; abv not at all noticeable. Could have been a little bit more layered concerning the obviously huge amount of dryhopping

Bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Cloudy medium amber color, over-abundant 3" white head, fluffy strings of lace. Aroma of fruit and malt. Taste is light caramel malt that grows beautifully into a medium carbonated swallow, continuing from there to a solid floral hopped finish that lingers forever. I didn’t know the Italians were beer brewers, but this closes the discussion. Excellent.
