Medium orange color, off white head. Plenty lace.

Aroma was more malty, with a floral, earthy hop note, somewhat spicy. Malts are sweet and bready.

Taste was low bitterness, with some citrus, but mostly earthy, herbal hop notes. Light caramel sweetness, and some bread crust tastes.

Oily feel, slick, medium bodied, lower carbonation.

Even for an English, its fairly average.

Quite disappointing for an IPA...
Appearance it's ok. There's a nice, big and dense foam.. the color is not equally nice, it's an amber color quite transparent.
Smell is the highlight here, really hoppy and citric, with a nice tone of passion fruit and grapefruit.
Taste is hoppy and with citric/fruity tones in the beginning but it becomes tart and there's nothing balancing the bitterness in the end (a big problem).
Really light for an IPA, carbonation is ok.
The sugar used in the brewing is rapadura, Indica has a different kind of sweetness and bitterness because of this,.. it's quite interesting but don't make it a great beer.

A 600 ml glass bottle, served at 9° C poured into a nonic glass. Veiled copper color with a really good and persistent head. Slightly sweet aroma with a hint of toast grain and floral hop. Taste is a little more stronger and bitter than aroma implies, with a hint of grain and coffee in the malt and spicy hop flavor. Medium-full bodied with a lively carbonation. A little bitter medium long finish.

600 ml bottle at Paralelo 12:27 in São Paulo. Cool looking retro-label with Colorado brewery's cartoon bear on the top with a drawing of the Taj Mahal on the right hand side. On to the beer:

Amber in color with tints of orange, the head is froathy and has good retention and lacing. The aroma was mild with herbal-like hops and faint fruity esters. Upon putting this to my mouth, I get a huge viscous body with some stickiness. The taste is relatively light to the body. Some fruity esters, a smack of booze, and a little bit of hops is all what I get.

It's a solid beer from a solid brewery, but it may not please the biggest hop cravings out there.

600ml bottle

appearance: clear amber, 2 finger off white head, medium carbonation.

smell: strong caramel malts and hop bitterness. Maybe some herbal presence. A characteristic you usually find in lots of south american (argentinian, brazilian and uruguayan) IPA's. Lacks that piney or fruity punch lots of american IPA's have.

taste: like the aroma, it's more malty forward than hop forward...caramel, some sweetness and bitterness.

mouthfeel: this is the best of this beer IMO because although the hop taste it's more bitterness than flavour, it's not something too agressive. Carbonation is a bit hard on the stomach.

overall: good south american IPA.

Amber color with a two finger head with medium retention and leaving laces.
Aroma of floral hops, a bit mild for an IPA.
Balanced beer with a bitter taste of floral and piney hops and malt bready base. Hints of caramel and fruits with some citrusy to it, towards grapefruit. Dry aftertaste with a good bitterness.
Light to medium body with good carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden.
It is an English Pale Ale, good beer and well done, but not extraordinary with compared to American IPAs. Still has a good drinkability and very pleasant to drink.
