4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

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!!!

75cl in teku. Pours a moderate white head, dense and almost cappuccino like; very nice hazy orange/amber uniform colour; looks awesome. Smells super fruity, nice malt background, fresh juicy, 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 and resin semi-dry finish. Nice soft carbonation, medium bodied, slick texture. Top quality brew, super smooth and drinkable. Love the hints of minty freshness from the sorachi... Drink this if you haven’t already, maybe with the ReAle extra on 2nd place, this is the absolute best Italian IPA

Not a classic IPA. Australian hops gives a powerfull aroma of tropicl fruits. The bitterns is balanced with a typical taste of Coconut. At palate has a complex body with oily texture.

Draught keg at Three Johns, Islington. A mix of floral & hop aroma - can detect the Soraci once it’s pointed out. Slightly sharper taste than expected but again could be the Sorachi in the mix. Liked it for sure once I’d got a few sips into it.
