Hazy, ruddy, brown colored ale. The head is soapy, thick, and full. Super malty aroma.,,boozy...with rich, ripe fruit. Wow. The taste is ultra sweet. Doughy...it is definitely Italian. Warming and intense. Hops come out in the taste more than the aroma...a resiny bitterness that comes in below the malt. Okay.

Poured from a bottle into a standard beer glass. Murky copperish color. Not much of a head.

I can't find a date on the bottle, so it is possible that what I'm drinking is expired. Smells acrid. The more I smell it, the worse the smell gets. The taste is also acrid. I suspect this is what people mean when they talk about skunkiness.

If I knew for a fact that it was expired, I wouldn't rate it at all. But I just don't know, and the bottle is no help. It's supposedly an import from Italy, so there could definitely be issues.

I've given somewhat lenient scores only because of the distinct possibility that my bottle got skunked. Otherwise, I would likely have given 1's across the board.

Date of bottling should be *prominently* displayed by all breweries on all product. I may have no choice but to pour this one. I hate having to do that, but I just cannot drink it. And I may be afraid to try it again - unless I can see that it is not expired.

Fresh tap at Bir & Fud.
Nice amber color with small white head.
Smells very citrusy , grapefruit, orange, mango, and pineapple.
Taste is a litteral explosion of fruit in your mouth. Instant hit. Not substatially bitter though. Also, the alcohol doesnt come out ether, despite the high ABV.
Great beer.

Hazy dark amber, poor white frothy head.
Really nice tropical smell, with lots of pineapple and mango, overripe orange, sweet floral notes, rich caramel, nice pine. By the book.
Straight up juicy pineapple, with sweet pink grapefruit, tangerine and a bit of sour lime. Hints of papaya and mango. Thick caramel maltiness, giving a nice sugared orange slice feel. Finishes with pine resin, a bit of dankness and bitter citrus peel.
Medium body, a bit sticky, medium fizz. Aftertaste is hoppy, sweet, citrusy, with a hint of tropical fruit still lingering around there.
A really solid imperial IPA, fits the profile nicely and actually entices you to get one more.

Copper with amber highlights and a cloudy complexion. A fingernail of off whit head is present on half of the top. Brussels lacing. Aroma is citrus hops with a hint of light malt. The flavor is full on citrus hops and is so tart and unbalanced that it comes off as artificial. The mouth is sticky and chewy.

Teku glass. Bottle. Aroma of citrus (orange, mandarin) sweet malty character noticable. Taste is at first malty and sweet, some hoppy flavours in the background. Medium sweet, soft carbonation, sticky texture. Aftertaste bitter. Little alcohol warming.

Poured at a perfect temperature with a somewhat long-lasting had plenty of lace and a hazy too cloudy honey amber color. Aroma is fresh resin hop, wet grain, malt. flavor is like aroma not very complex but perfectly balanced between bitter sweet and tart for this kind of beer. Body is perfect. Very slight medicinal aftertaste in the finish
