A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

Bottled:
Clear yellow colour, dense head. Aroma is cookie dough, goose berries and tropical fruits. Taste is lots of tropical fruit (apricots, mango), pine, wood, resin. Crisp, refeshing, well balanced and very drinkable.

I believe in IPA.... ma così ti piace vincere facile! Ottima ed equilibrata, amara senza stancare mai mai mai!

A very nice IPA, just in my taste. The beer is well balanced without to much "flowery" hoppiness.

Absolutely in my top five beers available. Of the ’citrus’ age of beers this is up there as one of the best. This is a fresh drink, with good strength and lovely aftertaste. Maybe a little more malt to drag it to the top of the game!

atrox (615) - Kraków, POLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Clear, pale, golden colour with great white head. Strong, fresh hoppy aroma. Taste is also very hoppy with tons of citrus fruits. Taste is dry with medium bitterness

Schizophrenic. On cask it’s all orange and challenging spicy hop finish - really good old school IPA. On keg it pours and drinks lighter and comes over as a really hoppy and heady strong session ale. Both very good but blind taste side by side and you would NEVER pick them as the same beer.

I prefer less bitter beers, though it’s citrus taste brought me directly to trappists Tripels :)

Was my favourite beer for a long time. Good balance with the hops and nice, not too strong aftertaste. I still like it (a lot)..

Cask conditioned at Merton Summer Beer Fest 06. Orange golden with white bubbly head. Ahhh, you just new this was going to be good as soon as it was poured. The buzz was going around that this was good and to get in quickly, and I was certainly not dissapointed. Citric hoppy, orange zesty notes with a fresh dustiness to the hops. A gentle base carrying the bitterness and more hops, hops, hops. The beauty of it all had me drifting off, thinking of how IPA came about, the Empire, the Jewel in the crown, which was India and particulary The British Redcoats, for whom it was brewed and Rudyard Kipling who documented it with his poetry.<!-- br --> When the arf made Soldier goes out to the East.<!-- br --> E acts like a babe and drinks like a beast.<!-- br --> And e wonders because e is frequent deceased.<!-- br --> Ere e’s fit to serve as a Soldier.<!-- br --> Serve as a Soldier, Serve as a Soldier, Serve as a Soldier.<!-- br --> A Soldier of the Queen.<!-- br --><!-- br --> If you’re cast for fatigue by a sergeant unkind,<!-- br --> Don’t grouse like a woman nor crack on nor blind;<!-- br --> Be handy and civil, and then you will find.<!-- br --> That it’s beer for the young British soldier.<!-- br --> Beer, beer, beer for the soldier .<!-- br --> . .
