Si I brought this back from a work trip to Medellìn and had held it back fro a few weeks after that. Didn't know much about 3 Cordilleras thus far since their reach in colombia, outside of their hometown is still very little.

But this was, absolutely pleasantly surprising. I opted for pouring their APA first provided I've been going down the american lane for weeks now.

Burnt yellow tone, with an amber core. while bright on the outside, it is in fact hardly translucent (even tough it shouldn't seem so thick). Very thick white head, clean and dense, with a generous bit of lacing left behind. some carbonation running throughout.

Smell is interesting. a sweet metallic feel on a fairly hoppy background. Not very strong, i had to dig my nose fairly deep into it but once felt it is fairly complex- for the style.

It is even better taste wise. Again, a metallic rim to the feel while opening with a moouldy half-sweet sensation. it quickly follows through with a strong, bitter dominance of some seriously APA kind of hops. however that's followed still by a certain moldy alcohol feel. It sort of brings together that belgian pale ale sensation with an APA bitterness. with a thick, yet non-oily body as well- very much the contrast once more.

In all, this is a brilliant beer from the 2nd largest city in Colombia. I'm amazed 3C haven't gone further into the national market since their style (this one and their IPA 6.47) are hardly contended here. I'll settle for finding some at bars in Bogota- i'm looking forward to trying the rest.

Poured a nice dense head that lingered for a good amount of time and left a constantlacy. Golden color, slightly opaque, got hazy once I poured its sediments.
Delicious aroma of American hops, quite fruity.
Good carbonation with a light-medium body.
Nice bitter taste, hops strongly present. A hint of sweetness from its malt and yeast, also I could get some toasted and citric notes. A very good beer (likely the best along with Septimazo from BBC).
