On tap at Buena Pinta, Madrid.
Creamy taupe cap over hazy amber. 4
Dried orange rind, pine sap, and flowers. 4
Whack of caramel, tangerine skin, white pine and tightening IBUs. 4
Creamy, round, almost medium. 4

Classic old school profile. Too-low ABV + an attempt at high hopping = a good Torpedo-esque by the numbers IPA, rather than a weak DIPA. C hops, balance, some bitterness - nothing wrong here. 4

Intense amber color, quite hazy, with a good white foam, not too much, but sticky and compact.
The smell impact is quite intense, with american hops, grapefruit, but not unbalanced, after all.
In the mouth a malty start, the hop inthe end is present, but maybe not quite enough for an imperial IPA (but, well, it is from Spain...)
Anyway, a quite long hop in the aftertaste.
In the end, quite balanced, more than drinkable, but nothing to die for.
