Una delle ultime creazioni nate nel Vecchio Birrificio: una birra decisamente bizzarra, che fin dal nome ricorda formule magiche (ricordate il Salagadula magibula bidibi bodibi bu di Cenerentola?) e pozioni... da favola! Caratteristica principale, il massiccio uso di luppoli con un cocktail di diverse variet che da luogo a profumi straordinari e ad una carica di amaro davvero notevole, con ben 100 IBU.

Prokroustis (741) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JAN 5, 2017
Extremely dark orange body with a smooth off-white head. Spicy, hoppy aroma with grapes, mandarin, caramel, apricot. Light body, decent carbonation. Spicy and sour as well as bitter flavour with lots of grapefruit, crab apple, hazelnut and a herbal finish. Unique and delicious.

Bottle from BeerLovers, Vienna. Cloudy amber colour with a big, tan head. Aroma of fruits, sweet malts, bit citrousy. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, hops, citrus, fruits. Light sour, light to medium bitterness with a medium body and medium to high carbonation. I really appriciated it.

Pinky77 (240) - - FEB 12, 2016
Bevuta in bottiglia, allapparenza risulta ambrata con una buona schiuma chiara con discreta persitenza. Al naso sentori di pane, agrumi. Al palato la sento piacevolmente amara, sentori di agrumi con finale e erbaceo.

ciocanelu (1728) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - FEB 3, 2016
Hazy amber color with off-white head. Aroma has some fruity hops, even a bit of fruity tartness. There is also a light caramel malt undertone. Taste is also slightly tart and fruity, hoppy, slightly bitter on the finish. Medium to light body, good amount of carbonation. Quite good overall, just the tartness is a bit weird for the style.

drjoeng (1044) - SINGAPORE - JAN 10, 2016
7.1%ABV. IPA. Poured out a brown Amber. 16SRM. Nose has some nice pine, orange, tangerine sweetness but with a lemon tartness. Mouthfeel is soapy. There are full-bodied roasted malt flavors of caramel, toffee, and a wonderful creme brulee sweet richness, this is accentuated by some nice vanilla hints. There is a beautifully rich sticky date pudding sweetness. There is marmalade palate with bitter, sweet, tangy and even the briefly alcholic tang of a wonderful Orange marmalade that I had made in Tasmania. There is also the palate of a single malt whisky with a slightly cloying mouthfeel, then a subtle smoky sweetness then its all in the back of throat and nose.Nutty and sweet like freshly roasted chestnuts. The hop ride is bitter up front with a resinous hyssop like body, then sliding into bitter slightly herbaceous haze. Finish is short medium and has the aftertaste of a macadamia chocolate chip cookie. Goes on Favorites List! All times favorites list!! A real sleeper hit because I came at this one with zero expectations.

Achel (391) - Ioannina, GREECE - DEC 19, 2015
It pours a dark amber color with a large tan head. Aroma is citrousy, grassy, with soft notes of biscuit and caramel malts and apricots. Taste is similarly well balanced between the sweet caramel malt notes and the grassy floral citrousy hops. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Istur (19) - ITALY - SEP 15, 2015
Una birra bilanciata e buona, gusto da ipa ricercata. Colore ambrato scuro e schiuma quasi cremosa e persistente.

ogniskowicz (740) - POLAND - AUG 6, 2015
Aromat: przede wszystkim truskawka (!), co w połączeniu ze słodkimi owocami tropikalnymi, cytrynowym muśnięciem i trawiastością, oraz grepfrutem daje ładne połączenie. W smaku bardzo wytrawnie, goryczka rzeczywiście spora, ale deklarowanego 120 ibu nie czuję. Wysycenie niskie, pijalność wysoka. Bardzo dobra IPA.

rumproasts (5274) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Tap. Amber with small head. Medium malt. Earthy, dry hop bitterness. A different take on the style. Interesting.
