Kosmokrator (516) - - AUG 11, 2012
UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 Limpido color arancio chiaro con uno spesso cappello di soffice schiuma bianca. Aroma intenso di mango, ananas e ace, delicate note luppolate e floreali; gusto amarognolo e luppolato, leggermente agrumato nel finale. Retrogusto amaro che lascia la bocca pulita, struttura parzialmente acquosa ma piacevole e rinfrescante. Buona IPA, particolare!

Best IPA ever, very fruit taste and very hoppy accent. Color is orange light.

Ragnampiza (515) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - DEC 7, 2014
(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.

Werckmeister (73) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - NOV 23, 2014
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!!!

brianza_ale (142) - ITALY - NOV 12, 2014
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.

Taste has grapefruit, citrus fruits, lemon. Medium thin body, good carbonation and nicely dry on the palate. Good beer, very refreshing.

tania_nexust (227) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014
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.
