Bought it on special a pack of 6 for 8,99 $
Orange gold color. Nice fruity smell.
I tried the Alexander Keith IPA and wasn't very impressed about it.
Boreale IPA have a nice balance. I find it a bit strong 6,2 ABV I wish it was more about 5,5 or 5,8 ABV. But nothing to complain about.
I notice a very nice taste of the beer after 2 or 3 minutes after you drink it. I was surprise because most of the beer around 5 or 6 ABV, the taste goes away very soon but this one it stays and at the end it s a real smooth taste that u got even after 10 minutes that u drink it.
So would I recommend it ? For an IPA, for sure ! U can t go wrong with this one. Much, much better than the Alexander Keith IPA.

The color is copper, it is clear and the head is a nice cloudy looking foam. Very white. Nice looking beer. The smell is very interesting... for Boreale. Citrusy with some other fruity smell. Some caramel malts are present too. Makes you want to take a sip right now! Nice aroma.

The taste is more fruity than the smell. A nice bitterness which is well balanced. The bitterness is not over the top, but its well balanced. This one is good. A good IPA.
