COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

teorn88 (7258) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2015
Backlog rating, 75cl bottle from Roybeer, Milan. It pours a dark amber color with a large tan head. Aroma is zesty, citrousy, grassy, with soft notes of biscuit and caramel malts, apricots and hay. Taste is similarly well balanced between the sweet caramel malt notes and the grassy floral citrousy hops. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nice IPA

figas (9) - - JAN 23, 2015 does not count
Doskonała piana, drobna i pięknie koronkuje. W pierwszym momencie aromat był super: owoce, mango, pomarańcza, ale po 10 min doszedł zapach sera. Goryczka przyjemna, mocna, ale na pewno nie 120 IBU. Smak podobny jak zapach.

CacheManyHose (649) - HONG KONG - NOV 1, 2014
From Craftissimo. Cloudy (so muddy it's opaque) orange-brown with yeasty sudsy off-white head and legs. Smells of heavy wet malt, some fruitcake/sweet spiced bread, butterscotch, pear and other overripe fruits, quite a concentrated aroma. Tastes of malt but accompanied by a lot of bitterness, a little sour and musty. Has the heavy malt and hop flavour of some New Zealand IPAs but less fresh-tasting and more musty and sweet, esp. in the nose. Body is thin to medium, a little fizzy and frothy, spicy bitter finish. Solid relatively malty IPA that's less creamy/crisp in palate than other Birra del Borgo beers I've tried.
