4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(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.

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!!!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
