On-tap at Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fa in Rome.

Pours a hazy copper color with a one-finger cream-colored head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of bright citrus and tropical fruit hops backed by good amounts of pale malt aromas.

Tastes very good. Somewhat grainy pale malt flavors kick things off before being quickly overtaken by loads of tropical fruit and citrus hop flavors. Midway through the sip hints of earthy hop flavors tone down the bright fruit flavors and carry through to a solidly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with smooth carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I had no problems finishing my glass and could easily have another or three.

Overall this hop certainly seems to lend itself to making great beer. Well worth a shot if you see it around.
