Had on tap at Max's Hopfest.

Pours a semi-hazy orange copper color.

The smell is mostly sweet citrus hops, nectarine, grapefruit, with caramel and resin.

This is a palate wrecker. It taste like a million IBU's. It's unbalanced and smacks you in the face. Very bitter, herbal, and hoppy. A bit too intense for me.

This is over-carbonated, very fizzy, which takes away from the beer.

330ml bottle, 7% ABV, lot 286. Merci beaucoup to Phyl21ca for the extra in our recent trade. My first Spanish IPA, of all things.

This beer pours a dark, hazy, murky orange brick amber hue, with three fingers of puffy, thoroughly dense, and subsequently bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some crazy honeycombed lace around the glass as it very slowly recedes.

It smells of strong caramel and toffee malt, prominent grapefruit, orange, and other more muddled tropical fruit esters, a mildly besotted breadiness, and a soft earthy yeastiness. The taste is sharply biscuity caramel malt, a decent multicultural grocery store fruitiness, and earthy, rather perfumed floral hops.

The carbonation is fairly average, and mostly frothy as such, the body an adequate medium weight, and smooth in the same vein. It finishes off-dry, the bready caramel malt, indistinct fruitiness, and simmering alcohol all playing well enough together.

A decent IPA, one with aspirations to the New World's predilection for bigger, faster, and, um, 'better', but once attempting the jump, falls squarely into the British style's open arms, albeit in a bigger, more built-up manner. Tasty, and hoppy enough (not to mention the well-hidden booze) to engender a desire for another, should I ever have the chance.

3.5/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good carbonation and some light lacing. Aroma of caramelized malt notes with some big bold citrus and bitter hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by harsh bitter and citrusy hops notes with some caramelized malt backbone that is a bit too sweet for my taste buds. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad but a bit too rough and harsh around the edge.

On-tap. ½ pt Stange glass @ II L´Hospitalet Artisan Fair 2014. Deep copper color, foggy appearance headed by foamy & creamy crown, yellowish off-white in color. Fresh aromas of yeast, ripe fruit & hops. Smooth toasted maltiness at first sip followed by slightly but increasing resinous bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dense texture. Flavor mainly tends to hoppy – grapefruit & resins- so sharp bitterness resolves in a long hoppy finish but malts make their job so aftertaste is unctuous & thirst quench. Delicious, well balanced –despite its high IBU profile- & easy drinkable.
