Share This Review

Dammenipa is an English-style IPA brewed by Birradamare SRL, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a chalice from a bottle.

Appearance

The ale pours a somewhat cloudy orange gold and is capped by nearly an inch-thick head of dense white foam that shows good retention. Streaks of residue, a soapy collar, and a thin film top the liquid.

Aroma

Its aroma is very dank with a heady scent of floral and herbal hops.

Flavor

Tasting begins with a mix of bready malt and mild floral hops. But then the palate turns abruptly bitter with strong herbal hops and citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit. Its herbal hops impart an earthy, coffee-like flavor. A base of bready malt and a hint of tropical fruit tie the palate together.

Mouthfeel

Its feel has a smooth draw that becomes grainy on the backend. Its medium body has medium-high carbonation and finishes somewhat dry and astringent.

Overall

Its appearance and feel are fine but where the Dammenipa really succeeds is in its aroma and palate. The Dammenipa packs so much flavor into such a small brew and its earthy nature suits an English IPA quite well. Should you find yourself in Italy, give this hoppy brew a try.

Recommended Pairings

Birradamare recommends the following food pairings with its Dammenipa: dishes that are fatty with a vegetal scent or well spiced with seasoned cheeses.
