UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Bottle. Golden. Very small head. Golden clear. Horsestable aromas combined with oak, leather and sweat. Hoppy aromas underneath. Heavy body with balanced dry-sweetness. A fantastic surrealistic brew. Hybrid like the black balls. I Have to taste it again to get more impressions. Back for a new tasting. Only one word magnifique. Probably the best brew in the World ;) hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - MAY 27, 2013
A beautiful cloudy amber beer with a smallish off white head that leaves lace. Some yeasty floccules in the pour. Aroma is an absurdly good combination of tart, fruity wild yeast funk and lots of floral/fruity hops. The flavor jumps on the tongue with slightly sour fruit (green apple/citrus) that blends into a resiny/piny hop bitterness. Just amazing. RaucusBacchus (101) - Sandy, Utah, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle: floral esters. Hazy, apricot hue. Light, pearlescent head. No lacing. Malt forward. Great body. Earthy, bitter finish. Very complex. Lovely. ~m

Bought @Johnny's off-license in Roma, tasted in the streets.
Smells like hell! Even from a half of a meter, aroma is just soo intense and complex.
An incredible taste, the level of sourness isnt high and suits perfectly to the standard dipa character.

Strong, hoppy aroma has good malty and yeasty notes, plus a fruity underpinning. Pours a dark, clear, bubbly amber with a thick and rather persistent ivory head. Rich flavor fills the mouth with hops, malt, yeast, a little fruit, a hint of syrup - and a noticeable, though not fierce, alcohol bite. Yes, definitely tart and funky! Firm texture has a good ragged fizz, leaving a hoppy, fruity, subtly yeasty and satisfying finish. Ov-ral, fabulous!
