COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Una variazione della normale ReAle, i luppoli sono diversi soprattutto nella quantità: elevatissima, ma quello che cambia maggiormente è la tecnica di utilizzo del luppolo. Tutto il luppolo viene utilizzato negli ultimi 10 minuti di bollitura, in una quantità 3 volte superiore rispetto alla Re Ale. Il risultato è un’esplosione di profumi che vanno dall’agrumato al resinoso (resina di pino ed incenso). In bocca secca, immediatamente arriva l’amaro per poi lasciare il passo ad una bellissima nota di mandarino che rimane estremamente persistente. Crea assuefazione!

DrnkMcDermott (3176) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Draft at Bavarian Lodge. Always excited to get a taste of the Italian craft beer action. In its tulip, this is a cloudy, lighter bodied pale ale, with a thin layer of foam and some lace at the edges. Smell does not have the hoppy slap in the face of an APA. Rather, there’s a note of fresh cherries, then some citrus hop. I should rate it higher for being understated, perhaps, but this is what it is. Instead, i say the taste is very unusual and delicious. I’m thinking, wrongly no doubt, of the newer hop varieties with kiwi or more tropical fruit notes. Malt is crystal with some aromatics, likely into a Belgian mix, or more likely what you get when an Italian brewer stops trying to imitate Heineken. yes, clearly a warm ale ferment, with fruity esters and lovely tasty malts, just a little bit thick. Touch of black pepper at the finish. Cheers, I say again cheers to growing craft beer scenes in new countries. This one’s a keeper, though it may be too delicate to have in a bottle.

kaserov (1100) - Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 7, 2017
Color dorado anaranjado, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco algo sucio de tres o más dedos de grosor (muy buena retención; de hecho, quizá la espuma sea excesiva). Carbonatación alta visualmente, al cabo de un rato se va perdiendo y deja de parecer un refresco. Textura oleosa y ligeramente chispeante. Aroma floral, herbal, a caramelo y pino. En boca es floral, herbal, con malta caramelizada, pino y algo de resina. Final de amargor muy suave que se acentúa mínimamente en postgusto. Seca. Parece una IPA, pero al paladar se siente más como una APA. Un poco entre dos aguas. Creo que mejoraría si la pillara más fresca.

Very hoppus in both aroma and taste. Golden in colour with a pleasant fizz. Citrus notes and a sharp finish. Refreshing and light to drink. Goes surprisingly well with spicy food.
