I wanted to like this one. I like the label. The idea of a Mexican ipa is great. But it's just not what I'd hoped. Metallic and bitter, but no hop pleasantries. Just kinda "meh"

No no no....this cannot be an APA....this is a MPA. Yes Mexican PA. The taste is very malty not much bitterness of things people luv or west coasters. The beer poured clear copper with nice creamy head that is leaving a lace. Unfortunately this beer misses the mark on taste and scent. I won't be making a trip to the beer store for this one anytime soon.

Amber color with a thick head with short retention and leaving some scattered laces.
It doesn't smell much like an IPA. Sweet predominant biscuit and caramel malty notes and some papaya.
Interesting flavor, though. Bold herbal hoppy juicy notes, lots of menthol, lemon, spices and peaches. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium to full body with low carbonation. Alcohol of 6.8% is well disguised.
Leafy IPA with a malty body. OG should have been a bit too high for an IPA. Good marketing, though.

A - Drank in the bottle, so color was not visible, but there was a distinct head within the bottle, lacing as well.

S - Pretty sharp dank nose, with a hint of pine and citrus.

T - A harsh bitter bash, with almost none of the standard hop highlights, no fruit. The malt is there, but is weak and not up to the task of balancing this out. There is an unpleasant metallic bite in the close, as well. Largely a one note experience.

M - Sharp with carbonation, heavy drying, but not oily build.

O - Not a particularly good or tasty IPA. Lacks any balance or even finesse, offering few of the rewards a typical IPA delivers to pair with the sharp bitter line. Not horrible, just not good.

Appearance: Copper. Lingering frothy head.
Smell: Pine, floral, and grapefruit.
Taste: Sweet malt, pine, pepper, and bitter rind (of some type of citrus).

Well, this is a first for me. A Mexican IPA. I was pretty nervous. However, it was truly not bad. It's sweet at first, and then wow, a very sudsy bitter takes total control...and the bitterness lingers. I wouldn't get it again, but I am happy that this is coming out of Mexico. I'm hopeful for a change in the current sad state of beer affairs there.

I made an account to say this beer has the worst aftertaste of any beer I have had. It must have been contaminated by soap.

11.2oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Best Before 082115AFL 07:18. I wonder how far out they "best by" their bottles.

Pours nearly clear golden with a slight bronze tinge, pretty good sized head which slowly relaxes into a creamy, unevenly sloped mound. Lots of carbonation. Smell is mild, a little boring. Not much to speak of here...slightly grassy, slightly hoppy, slightly straw.

Taste is too sweet -- syrupy, strange lemon grass/menthol twist, slow, medium-bitter pine finish.

Mouthfeel is thick and sticky yet effervescent. Overall, not great. Not terrible, either. But also wouldn't want to buy a pack. Glad I bought a single only.

Pours a semi-cloudy orange-amber. Decent head and ok lacing. aroma is slightly hoppy with a good amount of citrus. Taste is very slick, and unfortunately tastes a little off and metallic, sad!!!!Taste goes away fast and hardly any aftertaste. Did it have to be somewhere fast??. Ok, beer is not what I wanted, oh well !!
