Kosmokrator (484) - - 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!

IPA finalement assez légère en bouche mais très complexe. Mélange en bouche d’agrumes, de pins, de houblons... Pas facile à cerner.

From tap at moeder lambic. Golden, misty, white head. Very fruity nose , tropical, sweet, hops. Taste, very smooth, almost minute made of coca cola. very sweet for an IPA. Even bit creamy. But surprising for sure! Nice IPA.

Una gran bella birra, limpida con una bella schiuma ed un profumo pazzesco. al naso è floreale, agrumata, sa di frutta esotica, e in bocca è perfettamente bilanciata. Di corpo medio, va giù che è un piacere e lascia la bocca perfettamente pulita. Forte amaro che non è coprente.

wvhoran (237) - Tasmania, - SEP 3, 2014
On tap at Il Santo Bevitore, Venice. Pours hazy orange, classic IPA colour, with a rather frothy head that looks a lot like it belongs on a milkshake. Aroma is really pleasant with biscuit malts, sweet orange, apricot, pine. Flavour is sweet with some light malt, fruity (apricots, peach) and some pine notes. Dry finish with just a light bitterness. The best beer I’ve had yet in Italy.

milo91hd (107) - Lecce, ITALY - AUG 22, 2014
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.

Silvan7 (697) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 28, 2014
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

jamestulloch (1377) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 26, 2014
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...

Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours copper, nose has light caramel, taste is funky bitter lemon, fruity.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
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!
