BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cerveceria Mexicana S.A. De C.V.
Mexico
mexicalibeer.com

Style: English India Pale Ale (IPA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
An English style IPA, Hop on or Die, is heavy handed on the hoppy bitterness just enough to balance out the florals, resulting in a smooth copper toned beer.

This isn’t an over-hopped West Coast style IPA hiding poor quality with a palate-wrecking quantity of hops, it is smooth, delicate and well balanced.

Clean amber appearance. Decent foam.
In the smell floral and resinous hop, some tropical and pineapple. A bit too much tropical.
In the taste again, malt, hop, honey. A bit heavy and boring taste.
Almost chewy.
Drinkable, no more.

Pours a murky amber/orange with an outstanding pillowy head that retains well, giving well to excellent lacing.

The aromas are inviting and somewhat off-beat for the style. The hops are very floral and present, but a strong malt presence/backbone and a surprisingly-strong crackery yeast note deliver in spades--although the aromas as a whole are rather muted.

After a strong start, the brew falters at the palate. Well-balanced, yes, but lacking any nuance or complexity. And then mineral/metallic notes take over at the finish.

The mouthfeel is "wet" and not too much more. Good carbonation provides surprisingly tepid finish, lacking the crispness expected.

Overall, a mediocre take.

Aroma of tropical fruit (mango, foremost) and a bit of citrus. Pours a dark amber, nicely carbonated, good head. Light sweet intro changing into a dry bitterness. Body is medium. It has a nice malt backbone, but it’s not really nuanced enough. Too little fruit, the dry bitter finish is kinda metallic. It’s an alright beer, but not great. Would've been nice, but I guess import has taken its toll on this bottle.

Nice, but nothing special.
Nice to have tried it but won't buy again.

P- Poured from a 12 oz bottle,into a large Funky Buddha snifter.Best before 09/29/17.

L- Thick frothy off white colored head that stands one finger tall,with moderate retention and sticky lacing.Dark hazy amber colored body,with low clarity and distorted light showing through the glass.Medium amount of carbonation,and high amount of sediment.

S- On the nose I get lots of floral hops,with some spice hops,but caramel malt is the most dominant note.Lots of malt aroma for an AIPA,it honestly smells more like an English IPA.

T- On the palate I get some bitter pine up front,caramel malt in the middle,and some toasty bready cracker flavors on the back end.Some floral and spice hops on the back end,but its not very well balanced.There is definitely something off about this beer.It has a weird medicine flavored after taste.

F- The mouth feel is medium,with a sticky texture during the sip,and chalky after the sip.Lots of prickly carbonation on the tongue,with a dry finish.

O- This is not an overly impressive IPA in my opinion.I wouldn't say it is absolutely terrible,but it's definitely not something I would drink again.If you are an IPA purist I would say stay away.But if you like the English style IPA,give it a try and decide for yourself.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is bready malt and spicy earthy hops. Not a huge fan of the taste, the alcohol gets a little warm in the finish and the lingering hop bitterness is a little on the unpleasant side.

Had it at Dos Caminos, NYC. Happy to see "Mexican Craft Beer" choices at a Mexican restaurant.
From the bottle it poured a clear light amber with a nice frothy and foamy head and cap that retained well.
Aroma consisted of mostly caramel malts and light citrus. Some light floral aromas. Nothing too complex.
Sweet at first and caramel malt forward. Mid palate, the moderate pine hops add bitterness and flavor. Medium bodied and prickly. Easy to drink.
A simple IPA, nothing earth shattering. Tasty enough and pairs well with Mexican food.

This IPA lacks a robust hops presence. It's very malty and sweet. Smells of toasted grains and honey. Tastes on par with a hint of hoppyness on the back end. This beer is mislabeled, but a cool label nonetheless.
