Birra ambrata di alta fermentazione ispirata alle tradizionali India Pale Ale inglesi, molto luppolata nellaroma e nellamaro. Al naso si percepiscono sentori agrumati principalmente di pompelmo e sentori speziati, in bocca il malto fa da padrone, segue poi il fruttato ed infine lamaro che rimane molto persistente. La gasatura medio bassa tipica dello stile ne consente il servizio con la tradizionale pompa inglese.
A brand-new beer from a brand-new, very promising head-brewer. India Pale Ale following the American Pale Ale style with a fruity aroma (grapefruit), with peppery notes (East Kent Goldings), a rich taste of malts (Maris Otter and Crystal), with a very long bitter and citrus finish typical of Cascade hops.

330ml bottle from Brewdog (5):
Citrus and pine malts and is quickly overtaken by a strong floral hop aroma, some sweet malts and a sort of perfume like smell. There is also some alcohol right at the end.
Deep, honey amber colour with a two cm bubbly head that gradually reduces in size. The beer is clear too.
Hops & a combination of pine and floral ones with some soft caramel malts and various fruits. Definitely a fruity one with some orange and citrus along with some apricot and various berries plus some toffee.
Lively carbonation and a medium body with a strong alcohol lacing at first before settling down some. There is a crisp, dry finish that hints at bitterness too.

Pretty nice beer and one that went down well without being an outstanding beer. Initially the floral notes and the alcohol seemed too strong but both of these quickly died down as the beer settled and I got further down the glass.

lello4ever (942) - ITALY - MAY 19, 2017
Colore ambra scuro con schiuma estremamente fine, compatta e di buona persistenza. Al naso una buona intensit, sentori floreali, erbacei e punte di agrumi. La bevuta scorrevole, con una discreta luppolatura. Dolcezza del malto e una certa nota fruttata. Amaro che resta al palato, corpo medio, carbonazione pure.

33. cl. bottle (purchased from Horse, Berlin). Rather clear but still a bit hazy amber colour with a medium-sized and long lasting off-white head. Aroma is very pleasant with sweet grapefruit, tropical fruits, a bit of honey, flowers, and some spices. Taste starts with medium-sweet malts, then arrives a very nice light sourness and then a hoppy medium bitterness which is quite savoury. It is a medium-bodied, creamy textured beer with soft to average carbonation. A bit bitter, spicy and long finish. I really liked this one. Very well-balanced and really enjoyable.
