It was a hop explosion, an experience heightening my senses. Imagining all I desired from my beer but never dared to ask for. Some people thought it wasn’t for everyone. Ultimately, most of those who tried it ended up falling in love with her.

Hop is this beer’s undoubted star.
Being our reoccurring dream, our addiction, our cure, cause and resolution of many heartaches, we always come back to this beer, we want to fill ourselves with it. We want it to touch our hearts and souls while diving deep in its inebriant scents. We want to merge with it. It has aromas of mango, tropical fruit, grapefruit and bitter orange with balsamic notes and subtle malty nuances. Light amber almost orange with a very persistent white head, rich in refined West Coast hop resins, it is liquid poetry, wisdom and satisfaction lasting till the last drop. Just like love awakens the heart making the longing for the beloved source of torment, so our hop craving will find redemption every time we will near our lips to this beer.

Botella de 33 Cl. IPA italiana. Buena cerveza que demuestra que las India Pale Ale estan de moda.

Bottle at Birratrovo, Como, April 2012
Hazy amber color, with gorgeous head. Wonderful aroma of fruity hops and dry cheese rind, very light ammonia. Soft body, with a lightly sweet malt flavor, fruity hopping, light final astringency.
Very good.

Limpido color biondo-aranciato con schiuma bianca. Fruttata e aromatica al naso, amara e luppolata al palato. Corpo medio, effervescenza piacevole; buona IPA.

jamaty (2268) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Bonito color miel, con aspecto denso. Turbia. Dos dedos de espuma que desaparece rápido pero deja una fina película que sí dura. Como dice la literatura de su etiqueta, una explosión de lúpulo. Desde el aroma. Naranja, albaricoque. flores. muchas flores. En boca perfecto punto de carbonatación. Textura muy cremosa. Excelente sabor muy lupulado, envuelto en matices dulces, especiados. Pero sobre todo, sabores frutales y florales. Evoluciona en boca, cada vez más amarga y más sabrosa.

Manslow (1963) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 19, 2015
Butelka. Kolor bursztynowy, gęsta piana. Aromat karmelu i chmielu. Smak cytrusowy z nutami karmelu, goryczka średnia, nagazowane średnio, dobre.

Thanks to Beerlover_Ben. 330 ml. HUGE GUSHER. Also BBF 09/2013 if I understand correctly the Italian text. Pours a hazy golden with a huge collapsing white head. Nose is weird lactic thick yeast with some soap & reasonably share of floral mint, very weird & obviously not normal. Taste is same weird lactic yeast / dough, mint, soap, fizzy, mineral, sweetish taste,…. Very fizzy body. Oddly somewhat interesting but obv. not normal. I am fairly certain that there is no way either that fresh this bottle would have tasted entirely okay. Very odd flavor profile.

teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 24, 2014
Backlog rating. 33cl bottle from Grand Cru, Rimini. It pours a hazy apricot color with a medium white head. Aroma is rich of fruity juicy hops, citrus peel, ripe peaches, pine cones. Taste is medium sweet and finishes lightly bitter and citric, with notes of ripe mango, grapefruit, grass and lemon leaves. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, really good IPA

Bottle. Hazy amber pour with white head. Aroma has malt and yeast. Taste is bitter with malty sweetness.

martin00sr (4510) - Haderslev, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2014
Hazy orange. Huge, airy white head. Piney, hoppy aroma, tropical fruits. I got slightly funky notes. (not past bb). Flavour has caramel and good, smooth hoppy bitterness.

bax (1312) - Hasselager, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2014
(bottle 07/08-2014) very large beige head, slightly unclear yellow color, light hoppy aroma, hoppy taste, low bitterness. BB date 2 2014, L301 13. Must have been slightly too old when purchasing.
