Hazy amber color with a thick head with medium retention.
Nice hoppy aroma with pine predominating with hints of grapefruit.
Flavor follows nose. Nice bitterness with a citric and fruity taste with predominant notes of pine on a sweet malt base.
Medium body with medium carbonation and tiny bubbles. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
This is much, much better than the version I tried a few months ago. Now it is an assertive American IPA, the real deal.

3.08/5  rDev -14.7%

Look: Pours an amber color with about a 1/4 inch head and ok retention

Smell: Very malty character some slight caramel notes

Taste: I am pretty let down by the beer because there is almost no hop flavor to the beer. The flavor is just big and rich malt. It's not bad but it reminds me nothing of an IPA

Mouthfeel: Medium body and medium carbonation

Overall: I no have had a few different beers from Brazil and all I can say is that the Brazilians should stick to making beautiful woman and give up the beer

355 mL bottle, thanks Jon,

A: Pours amber with a medium white head, spotty lace.

S: Strong malt character, honestly smells like an aged Celebration which I really like, but not to style.

T: Fairly sweet malt, again like an aged Celebration with some orange liqueur. Grapefruit makes a play, but the malt tends to dominate.

M: Somewhat smooth with a thin watery carbonation at points. Nice firm finish though brings the score up.

O: My first Brasilian IPA, and it looks like they have a long way to go to reach the style that is being made in America. But perhaps they don't want to go in that direction; who knows? Nice beer overall, I had no problems enjoying it.

Given the good word some of my Brazilian colleagues have made for this beer and its marriage of American hops and English malt, my relationship with the lady could only get better, né? The only way to find out is by opening a bottle. srbcurti, muito obrigado pela oportunidade! 355 ml bottle with a validity date of 8/2011, on to the beer:

Looks brilliant amber in the tulip. On top, the head forms small, though its retention is acceptable. When I think American hops in an IPA, I immediately expect a punch in the face of the lupulins. In Dama IPA however, the hops take a back seat as this offering is surprisingly more malt forward. Still, the aroma is an attractive thing. The hops are soft and help create subtle pineapple and fruit punch, the malt seems to give it a sugary rapadura character.

Given the subtleness of the hops, I knew what to expect when I tasted it. More maltiness and rapadura, and faded hops. Warming the beer gave this beer a slightly different character, as it grew notes of tea, floral, and a slap of honey. A lighter medium body, which was a little surprising given the ABV hits 6.5%. Not really bitter at all.

To the surprise of some, I did like this beer a little better than the overall score I granted. If a near “expired” bottle can produce something like this, one can only imagine the results from a fresh bottle.
