Seriously potent bitterness with a series of pungent and resinous aromas. A Dry beer with a slight resinous licorice backbone to it. You got to drink this beer on a full moon night on a West Coast beach (an Italian one will surely do as well).

Bottle courtesy of a modern day Roman Archimedes. All kinds of grapefruit and resinous hop aromas. Cloudy burnt orange pour with a white head. Very smooth and creamy despite the intense hop flavors. Huge grapefruit and pine resin notes that don’t overwhelm due to the silky smooth malt backbone. Good body, pleasant mouthfeel, and perfect carbonation. I know the hop bill must be outrageous, but there is no doubt this is a sessionable brew. In fact, I think it’s time for number two. If your a hop head, give this girl a whirl. If your not, well hell, no better time than the present to get on board the hop train. So get your ass to Rome and try some California Moonset......

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2016 Tasted some time ago. Bottle. Sensoric. Golden, medium hazy with moderate, white, semi-thick head. Average head retention and lacing. Mostly moderate citrus aromas (mainly grapefruit), also moderate piney and resinous notes, slightly peachy. Average bitterness, nicely balanced with semi-sweet malty notes. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is bitter, short and citrus. In overall good, solid IPA with short, but intense bitterness, well balanced.

Savagesteeler (138) - Warszaw, POLAND - JUL 29, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2015 Zapach zdecydowanie amerykański. Owocowy, nuty tropikalne, słodkie, rodzyneki, . W smaku konkret. Naprawde spora goryczka, połączona z grejfrutem, cytrusami. Na finiszu słodycz, mandarynki. Gdzieś tam wyczuwalny mały dms, ale nie wpływa to negatywnie na smak. Piwo o złotej barwie, lekko opalizujące sie. Spore wysycenie. Podsumowując naprawde dobre piwo, widac, że włoski craft trzyma poziom, ale pamiętajmy i nie dyskredytujmy naszego rodzimego piwowarstwa rzemieślniczego

I’m not sure what a California Moonset smells like, but this beer was pungent and overflowing with resin, grapefruit, and fruity hop notes. It looked hazy amber gold with a small white head and appropriately hipsterish in a mason jar. It was very bitter tasting but also had some sweetness. Piles of grapefruit and resin mixed with some milder biscuity malt. I really enjoyed this beer, but I’d already had several before, so I may have not been the best judge.

Flaske 330ml spandert av Rune. Delt med ham og Skinnyviking på Nerstranda 14 Jan 15. Mørk gylden. Uklar. Veldig lavt skum. God frukt/krydderaroma. Smaken syrlig frukt. Fyldig, innholdsrik & god. På grensen til tungdrikkelig.

Skinnyviking (9570) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle shared with Rune and Finn. High creamy lasting white head. Clear amber body. Dusty peach dominated fruity flavor. Pretty high hops bitterness and a good deal of carbonation based on roasted malt caramel ánd notes of liquorice. Long dry finish.

Rune (12795) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2015
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Patchy beige layer covering a hazy, apricot coloured body. Heavy hopped aroma, dried fruity. Taste of peach, grapefruits, pine and bittersweet dried fruits to the ending. Citrus peels as well. Full bodied. Soft in the mouth. Rather heavy to drink (shared with Skinnyviking and Finn, Tromsø 14.01.2015).

At 4:20 in Rome on tap. Pours golden hazy with a nice cap. Nose has malts, tons of pine resin, grapefruit. Mouth practically mirrors the nose: amber malty feel, medium body, pungent bitterness, citrus skin. Cool beer...is it Italian? :-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
