Beautifully balanced IPA full of fruity goodness.

Purchased in an IPA sampler pack from Wishbeer in Bangkok.

A cloudy amber appearance with thick head that lasts a long while and a decent amount of lacing on the glass.

Sweet bready smell with a decent amount of citrus and earthy hops.

Taste is strong. A solid grain / malt / bread base plus a hint of grapefruit and a crisp strong hops finish.

Medium body with a good CO2 bite.

Overall a good IPA. Well balanced flavor, but not over the top.

Clear tangerine color with big fluffy white head loitering up top. Aroma of cooked grains, light citrus, light lemons, the sourness of both skins, some booze. Tastes of old oranges with a chewy rind, some cooked grains,mild horseblanket, light lemons, and a boozy twang. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Old fruit and booze and horseblanket don't mix well.

My first review on beer advocate.

First i would like to say I have enjoyed this beer from their regular bottle which ran around 19 dollars and from the bigger bottle that ran around 37 dollars. I enjoyed the smaller bottle more simply because the flavors seemed more concentrated, the mouth feel was much creamier and the nose seemed to be more floral.

The beer pours a perfect two finger head and resembles a solid reddish golden. Exactly like the picture on their website every pour.

The smell is robust and very appealing, cascade hops elevated on the top of a slight caramel and light apple or apricot being slowly heated on the stove. Very good.

I normally am not a huge fan of the taste of american IPA's. This opened up the world of IPA's for me. I can only describe it as fresh creamy floral activity exploding on my palate and cleansing everything that was before, finishing crisp and clean and slightly dry but not an uncomfortable dry. Amazing .. just perfect.

The mouthfeel i can only compare to that of a weihenstephaner. Except cleaner, crisper and creamier at the same time. It goes in your mouth and expands into creamy frothiness. So delicate but big. I would have to say this beer in the smaller bottle has the best mouthfeel i have ever encountered.

This is an experience worth having. I have tried many IPA's and for me this is the pinnacle of an IPA. It does not go overboard with the hops and every other aspect of the beer is spot on fantastic.

This beer was recommended to me as a good Italian IPA by a local beer store while on vacation in Italy. It was a great find for me. I love IPA's and this is great one. It truly brings out the fruitiness of the cascade hops used to make it.

A: The beer pours with a thick white to beige head that settles slowly and leaves some lace on the class. The beer itself is golden to amber in color.

S: Upon first opening the bottle (which was room temp) I smelled apricots above all along with the piney notes characteristic of IPA's. The apricot aroma persisted even after being poured.

T: There are subtle hints of apricots, peaches and the bitters of the hops which mix well together. The bitters linger on the palate but are not harsh.

M: The beer is well carbonated giving a somewhate rough mouth feel in the front of the sip but finishes smooth.

Overall: I wish I could pick this up locally. I am a fan of IPA's and this is by far one of my favorites. I would definitely have this again (several times) if given the opportunity. Definitely worth a try if you get the chance.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

My friend picked up a discounted case and share a bottle with me. The only date on the bottle is 01/2014 which is long time to let a hop centered beer sit on the shelf; I'm hoping that this is a beer from the future and not an old bottle.

A: A hazy light amber beer. I was warned about is one foaming over but no such problem here. The head is long lasting off-white foam.

S: moderate citrus hops with a citrus peel character,the hops aren't muted and aged but their not bright and fresh either. A light malt sweetness and a slight bit of alcohol sweetness as well.

T: The flavor is again more citrus peel than citrus. It's a but unusual but not bad having a moderately strong hops flavor and hops bitterness. The malt brings a light clean sweetness. The balance is moderately bitter. The finish is off dry with a citrus peel bitterness for an aftertaste. There was is a light bit is diacetyl.

M: A fairly creamy beer with medium-full body and moderately-strong level of carbonation. A moderately-light slickness coating the palate.

O: An interesting take on an American IPA not that the craft beer scene isn't littered with slightly off IPAs. The diacetyl gives the impression of English yeast while having American hops sort of confuses the English style from the American.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

An Italian-American IPA for an Italian American boy?

A-This brew pours a lightly hazy dark copper color. Head is a lopsided brigade of large bubbles skirted along a tuft of foam. Head leaves big, bubbly ghosts of lacing.

S-Quite interesting. Plentiful amounts of floral hops. Hops are also herbal and of dried grass with a tickle of candied citrus in the very back. I definitely get some honey, bread and caramel. Well balanced with a unique hop expression.

T-The flavor is more of the same but the hops really stress a long floral finish. Flower petals, dandelion stems and perfume. Spicy hops march the malt onto the palate. I also get a cool, over-steeped tea element as well. There is plenty of balance between the hop and the malt. They play together pleasantly.

M-Great feel. The carbonation sneaks up on me. The feel is creamy with relatively mild bitterness. The finish is bittersweet and it lingers for quite a while.

O/D-One of my first Italian crafts. Definitely my first Italian IPA. I enjoyed its complexity and eccentricity. It is a far cry from the aggressiveness of your textbook West Coast IPA; I find it to lie somewhere between an East Coast IPA and an English IPA. Pretty cool nonetheless. Price-tag hurt a bit, however.

On-tap 11/20/2012 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains honey, citrus, caramelized malts a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of honey, citrus and caramel. Then a thin malt character comes in. The hops presence is decent and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, it’s a solid beer but in a style where there are so many very good alternatives it’s hard to justify the high price.

Pours gold/amber with a massive head.

Similar flavours, more spicy hops and grapefruit. Not very aggressive though. Underneath is some biscuit-like malt. Mild bitterness.

Into a tall glass. Three fingers of head, big and frothy. A hazy, dark straw colored body.
Smells like lemon and pine, and a floral note. Which was a nice surprise.
A solid malty taste, toned down pine bitterness. Tasty.
Silky texture, moderate carbonation with a fizz.
This is a good beer. For an American IPA it does not have the characteristic bitterness, or maybe I'm used to higher IBU for IPAs. In any case, it's still enjoyable.

Pint at Beer Deluxe. From notes.

A - Poured ultra hazy copper with a two finger fluffy beige head. Decent lace and a half finger retention.

S - Juicy tropical fruits. Sweet fruits and a nice hop punch. Quite lovely to explore.

T - Juicy tropical fruits. Piney with grapefruit and seemingly less juicy and tropical.

M - Good carbonation with a light to medium body and a decent bitterness.

O/D - A nice IPA. Enough tropical fruit flavour but a bit rougher than the aroma leads you to believe. Good.

A- Beautiful honey golden color. Foamy, creamy white head, leaves a little lacing

S - Strong floral aroma of honeysuckle, honey, orange, grapefruit hops, and malt.

T- first flush is sweet malt, honey and orange, then the bitter hop asserts itself and lingers at the back of the tongue.

M- Very fine carbonation that feels almost flat. Seems like the one drawback to this IPA for me. Just the tiniest bit of sweet stickiness on the tongue

O- Overall I enjoyed this IPA. Not quite an AIPA, but a kissing cousin. sweet, very floral, and hoppy dry all working in harmony.

While steadfast with class and enthusiastic with innovation, Del Borgo embraces new world technique and raw material with a vibrant new recipe all their own; American-style IPA.

Fitting to form, the beer pours with a rusty amber hue that hides behind the signature hoppy haze. Firmly headed, the beer releases an off white foam that confidently endures the session and trails with sheets of lace. Perhaps with slightly elevated haze than is typical, but the beer simply looks like an IPA.

And the aromas do little to suggest otherwise. Bright, zesty, and floral, the bouquet of hop aromas leap from the rim of the snifter with a citrusy punch of grapefruit, orange zest, pine needles, and herbal grasses. Backed by a firm malt foundation, aromas of caramel, biscotti, and bread dough support the hops with a hop-forward balance.

But the flavors balance out better than the aromas suggest. Caramel sweetness is met wit a round and juicy bread-biscuit fullness just before the hops set in. The mid palate introduces hop flavors of freshly squeezed red grapefruit juice, dried oranges and tangerine zest, with tea-like herbs, mulled grasses, and a vibrant pine taste that turns pleasantly resinous bitter to finish. Slightly estery, the taste of apricot, mango, and pineapple weave into the flavor of hops for added complexity and intrigue.

Medium bodied, the creamy carbonation and firm malt weight keeps the beer fuller longer into the taste. But a late turn to dryness is aided by resinous hop character, mild alcohol warmth, and fleeting malt sweetness. Snappy and zealous, the beer closes refreshing, crisp, and clean to close.

Though Italian-made, this IPA does all that the style prescribes. Although there's little that gives this version any trademark or uniqueness, it neither offends or disappoints. It's true to its roots through and through.

On tap at the U Pick 6 Tap House in Erie, Pa.
Appearance is deep golden, very good lacing.
Aroma is of balance of hops and malt.
Taste is of sweet malt and tangy hop flavor. Good hop flavors with mild bitterness and finish. Crisp, clean flavors.
Overall an execellent ipa not as intense as american ipas but very flavorful and quaffable. Tastes fresh and delicious. Pricey but worth seeking out to try at least once. Glad I got to try this one before it was gone.

375ml geueze-style bottle, purchased from Berkeley Bowl West in Berkeley, CA.

Pours a hazy, slightly dusty golden colour, with a large-bubbled head of white, that poked its way above the lip of the bottle before it was poured. It actually subsides pretty quickly thereafter, however, leaving the beer looking surprisingly flat. Lacing is decent enough.

Nose is flat leafy hoppiness, with a touch of organic, rustic nuttiness, and a touch of rubber. There's an odd mix of the natural and the inorganic to it, with a tart touch of copper or tin, and a herbal, crushed leaf aroma. It's quite interesting, but a little unusual.

Taste is musty and a little flat, with some nutty characters on the back giving a basis to the palate. Hops (what there are) are compressed as a leafy, herbal bitterness on the back, which is rather flat and not particularly piquant. Malt goes through the motions. It provides a basis, but doesn't go much beyond that.

Overall? Eh. It's not unpleasant, and it doesn't deviate from the norm in any substantial way. I mean, it's drinkable enough. Apart from the hint of funk on the nose, it's just dull—we've seen this many times before.

750 ML poured into a tulip

A-- Pours a golden orange amber color. Moderate pour got a 3 finger head. OOPS, too fast a pour. Slow fading head to a collar that left a lot of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass. Head is a bright white but off white color. Looks best at half a finger but does not hold up too well. Back to collar.

S-- Clean, crisp, and clear. crisp citrus and grassy bitterness but slightly muted. Lots of bread in this.

T-- Grassy and citrus with a big sweet bread malt backbone. Might be a bit too sweet for the long haul. Crisp bitterness and nicely done.

M-- Medium carbonation and light feel. Crisp and clean. Can I say that some more?? Sweet bread finish that is dry.

O-- Saison meet IPA?? Seems like it. I suppose this beer really puts the difference between the US and European IPA's in perspective. it is a good beer but lacking things. Would get again due to how easy it is to drink

A 330ml bottle with a BB of Sept 2012 (I think). ABV is stated as 6.4%. Acquired from an Italian deli in York.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. A hazy coppery-amber with plentiful carbonation. Produces a massive head of creamy off-white foam with excellent retention; this lasts for quite a while before finally reducing to a surface layer. Aroma of sweet malt with notes of citrus and leafy hops, underpinned by earthy yeast. Faint hints of spice/ginger in the background.

Tastes of sweet malt with an aromatic hop character and a dry, bitter finish. Notes of biscuits, citrus and yeast, followed by an oily astringent bitterness. A hint of solvent/alcohol in the background. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with decent body. Highly astringent - dries the palate. Aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops and malt.

A pretty good effort, though not as balanced as the regular ReAle. The aroma is nice, but the flavour has a vaguely unpleasant hop aroma/bitterness in the background that detracts from the overall impression. Perhaps a tad too much bittering hops? At any rate it has minor flaws, but it's still packed with character. Worth trying.

Bottle obtained from Bir & Fud, Rome, May 2011. BB is 4/2013.

This is described on the Del Borgo website as a refined version of the regular Re Ale.

Capped bottle opened with a resounding champagne pop, but no gushing. The body is clear gold. Much lighter than regular Re Ale. Very foamy in pouring, had to pour slowly. No problem with carbonation in this one. Leaves some lacing on the glass and has good retention.

Smells of light malt, tangerine, green hops, and a little butter.

Tastes a bit bitter, with grapefruit/tangerine skin, followed by green hops, and a long dry finish. I am liking this much better than the heavily malted Re Ale regular; the malt in this is bready. The hops are strong but in a subtle way, kind of like Hommelbier. There is no pungent or astringent aspect to this beer, just a nice clean expression of the hops.

Body is light and the carbonation is ample and round, giving this a very creamy mouthfeel.

This is a pretty tasty and drinkable IPA. The malt bill of the regular Re Ale is medium dark; this beer is much lighter in color and the malt taste is lighter, giving the hops a clearer and cleaner expression. The website says that the same hops are used as the regular Re Ale, but that this is a late-hopped version. I think this is a pretty good IPA that has a refined, noble hop character.

A - a very clear honey yellow color originally.. looks like there was a bit of sediment on the bottom and once poured all rose to the top. a very interesting looking pour! tons of fluffy white head (great lacing!)

S - smells of bitterness and earthy are a bit up front. smells of a mellow spice, oregano maybe? hints of citrus

T - definitely NOT what i am used to! a very sweet IPA, tastes of tea leaves(?), herbs, sweet malt, toffee (?) .. this is a VERY interesting tasting beer - definitely not what i am used to for an american ipa, but i cannot complain - it's delicious

M - a bit tart for an IPA, but slightly creamy on the cheeks as well so it's fairly balanced out. flavors drive the palate a bit out of its element

O - a very nice beer, but i don't think my mouth can handle another one of these. it's a bit all over the place with flavors, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's a bit too much for a session.

No too impressed with this beer. Beer is amber and clear with a thin head of white small bubbles, some lacing, low carbonation.

Aroma is grassy, and sweet.

Beer is medium to light in body, solventy and sweet with a grassy hop presence. It is not a great IPA, and not a repeat for me. Just not impressed with this brewery in general. This was basically their last chance with me. They failed.

S – Some malt sweetness a small bit of hops in there too.

T – Really nice malty sweetness with very little hoppiness.

M – So smooth with no carbonation bite at all. Light to medium bodied.

Poured a delectable golden body with two finger head that left lace down glass. An earthy, floral aroma with touch of grain and some sweet malts. Somewhat sharper, spicier hops than used to - good crispness to beer - although these leafy hop bitterness undercuts some of balance with sweetness. Medium bodied and filling, the hops give off citric notes and there's minor caramel sweetness. A little different from most IPAs with a more pronounced bitter and dryness eminating from the hops. Not a complaint but just an observation; I've had beers from this brewery before and they always are good and memorable and this is no different.

A: Golden with tons of thick, white head. Excellent retention and lace. Single IPAs aren't supposed to look this good!

S: Sweet malts & earthy hops. Shame it's not more forward.

T: A hearty backbone of malty sweetness balances out the strong hop flavors. Hints of pine inject themselves midway through. Ends with lingering bitterness, but some of the sweet malt managed to make its way in there too to smooth things out.

M/D: Body is bigger and creamier than any single IPA I've ever encountered. It's rare for me to enjoy a single IPA, but I can safely say that I like ReAle Extra.

A: Pours a slightly hazy peach colour with a healthy two-finger foam head that's a little creamy. Quite a decent retention, with a lingering blanket, and good retention.

S: Bread-like malts, tropical (pineapple) and citrus (grapefruit) fruits, floral and herbal notes, slight nutmeg aroma, honey, faint yeast & earthy spice aromas. Good and varied overall smell.

T: Malt presence with a real nice honey-oat bread taste. Bitter hops are there and serve to contain and balance the malt sweetness quite well. Tropical pineapple fruit comes through in the taste with a bit of citrus. An appealing earthy taste is quite present in this, especially towards the finish. I'm liking this.

M: Medium and slightly oily body with a moderate carbonation.

O: Very nice American IPA offering from Italy that would be a staple of mine if the price and availability were better.
