COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra ambrata di alta fermentazione ispirata alle tradizionali India Pale Ale inglesi, molto luppolata nell’aroma e nell’amaro. 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 l’amaro 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.

TBone (18566) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2009
Bottled (BB 04/2010). Deep red-brown, a bit hazy color, small beige head, some lace. Cascade flowery-hoppy aroma. Average maltyness, hops are a bit more subdued than aroma is indicating. Grassy-flowery hoppyness, some piney and citrusy notes. Feels less than 6.4%.

jtclockwork (17654) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours rose colored. White head. Nose of sweet caramel malt, tea leaves, flowers, grapefruit, hops and pine. Taste of tea, grapefruit, caramel malt, hops and light pine. Great pale.

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 21, 2010
Keg (Bir&Fud, Rome)
Sweet peachy, even mandariny, aroma. Taste follows that lead - tons of mandarin. Soft and sweet, in particular after it’s let warm to a decent temperature. A touch sticky, as the residual sugars are high, but the rich malts and occasional honey hint are pleasant.

3.1
yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 22, 2008
Bottle, 75cl. It pours a hazy, orange body with loads of small floaties and an off-white head reminiscent of that of a casked bitter, only a bit bigger. The aroma has a slight sour touch blending in between grapefruit, pine and a malty background. Not very pronounced aroma. Sweet and bitter flavor with grapefruit being the most dominant, but also pinecones, grass and some malt is present. Too thin body. Medium duration on the finish, with hoppy flavors dominating, grapefruit and pinecones, quite bitter. It’s a refreshing beer, and the thin body makes it very easy to drink. A bit boring though.

Benzai (16931) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2014 Re-rate September 2014 @ Van Moll Brewpub shared with Caesar. Hazy dark reddish color, medium to full sized creamy white to off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, hops. Taste malts, hops, some bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad but not very exciting either. Not nearly as good as the first time I tried it. -- Original rating: Fine smell and taste, just a little less then ReAle Extra. I miss the extra hops. Little low in ABV for me personally. Palate good though. 9-4-8-3-16.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2007 Bottle. The aroma is like some sort of red berry. Very cloudy, greyish, milky, copper colour. Very fruity flavour and with fruity hoppiness. Medium to high bitterness. Astringent aftertaste. 7 3 6 3 13

Draught at Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fà, Rome. A lot more fresh than the bottled version. Nice malty aroma and flavour, quite powerful. Very nice and fresh. 8 3 8 3 16

imdownthepub (15528) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2016
Bottled, 330ml from Corks Out, Chester. Hazed orange amber with white head. There is a fruity, caramel sweetness from the start of this, pleasant tropical fruits, melon, some toffee hints. Nicely drinkable with a late earthy hop note. Good beer.
