    Thank you Mister @belvedere86 for your thread open. Loved catching up with the thread yesterday including the great beer and food posts, @Ocalafox car pics and news of @eppCOS successful race - Congratulations!

    Far less ambitious weekend for me, didn't even do my taxes as planned. Oh well, I'll cry in my cellared beer.

    Bottom line this held up OK, but two women should taste better. My bad, I kept them too long.

    Good morning and good week,
    I read the first four posts to which I wanted to add one of my weekend reviews.
    I drank several beers that I took notes on, both at home and away.
    Having noted that someone thinks that in here we are almost talking about IPA (and various declinations), which those who frequent this thread know very well that it's not, just look at how today's thread started, I wanted to dedicate the following review to those who say that here there is little variety of styles:

    Radiocraft Brewery (Albano Laziale, ITA) - CHOP SUEY - Double IPA (7,5%)

    33 cl can, on the label: "Lot: L452023V - Best before: 30/11/2024".
    In addition to barley malt, a small percentage of non-diseased wheat and oats are present.
    As soon as it is uncorked it exudes citrus and slightly floral aromas.
    Versata is a light blonde that with a veiled effect turns towards intense straw yellow.
    He has a nice foam hat.
    In my mouth I find a beer with a medium/full body but completely (or almost) devoid of daring carbonation which makes the drink less light than it could be.
    The predominant flavor is that of citrus fruits and citrus peel (especially grapefruit, but also bitter orange) which is counterbalanced by more tropical notes of pineapple and summer fruit.
    With the dilution of the beer, sweeter and warmer (and heavier) malt notes emerge and the alcoholic note is felt.
    The finish is the most pleasant thing about drinking it: dry with a pleasant bitter taste that I appreciated.
    I'm not a big Double IPA drinker but this is one of those that if you don't drink quickly, becomes heavier and heavier as time passes in the glass...
    The taste and the final bitterness are there, but a practically absent carbonation does not enhance this beer and it is a discussion that I would also extend to other similar beers packaged in cans.
