Was recommended to me at the Cervezorama beer shop in Madrid It was a bit spendy but it was something new to try. Pours a hazy burnt orange into my wine glass. Mild head and minimal lacing. Aroma is piney and citrus. Taste is malt base with some sweetness and hoppy pine flavor. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and hop oily slickness. Not much carbonation. Overall a very pleasant IPA and well worth another try.

A - Hazy, dull orange color, with a fluffy 1 finger head

S - Nice floral and citrus mix

T - Muted citrus, pine is the dominant flavor, there is a definite hop bite that ius balanced off by a caramel like sweetness.

M - Feel is slick, moderate carbonation, alcohol is very well hidden

O - There are so many good IPA's out there and this is another one. My first time having anything from this brewery, and was very pleased. Glad I got a 6 of this on a whim.

Hazy, obviously unfiltered, orange-amber with a small, creamy white head on top. Definitely a more balanced type aroma for an IPA, but a good one...dark, juicy citrus, lime, flowers, grapefruit, peach, and some sugary malt. Mellow spicy citrus hop flavor with some black tea and grain. Very nicely balanced...when it's done right like this, I can really dig it. Lots of grapefruit, tangerine, and an increasing amount of pine resin and perhaps a bit of wood. Drying, textured medium body. Really quite nice all around.
