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

DrnkMcDermott (3072) - 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, theres 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. Im 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 ones a keeper, though it may be too delicate to have in a bottle.

Grumpelmies (290) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 12, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy orange. Big foamy head with beautiful lacing. Aroma of mangos, passion fruit and citrus fruits. Taste follows aroma plus honey, pine and hoppy bitterness. Nice malty backbone. Long lasting bitter finish. Medium to strong carbonation. A lovely IPA.

19Oracolo78 (172) - ITALY - FEB 27, 2017
Birra di colore ambrato. Schiuma bianca, moderatamente fine e persistente. Allolfatto sentori di frutti esotici, mango, ananas, maracuja e agrumi. Al palato ha un corpo medio e si ripresenta tutto quello gi sentito allolfatto. Il dry hopping, con labbondanza di luppolo la rendono piacevolmente secca con un finale spiccatamente amaro ed erbaceo. Una grande birra.

Aroma - lot of herbal hops, bitter green herbs, citrus, citrus zest, some unripe yellow fruits, a bit of pin needles. Taste - medium bitterness, with herbal hops and some earthy notes, bitter green herbs and pine needles, unripe yellow fruits, some yeasts. Good, a true IPA.

A bit of caramel, but well balanced with the hops, its floral and raisin flavours.Its medium-high bitter taste, good body full and round.

Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Bottled 15th of May 2016. Pours hazy orange. Nose is floral, citrus, apricot, melon, grapefruit. Palate is not as bitter as I would have thought, citrus and apricot come through quite nicely. Some sourness at the end. Quite nice for the age!

Thats what the fuss is about. .This is a startlingly bitter beer that has a brilliant cushion of soft mouthfeel behind it. Grassy twang lingering. Really pleasant drinking.
