I had this at a wine and meat bar Romea in Guadalajara. Served in the bottle - I'm suprised by its alcohol content. Quite nice, refreshing aroma - not a west coast IPA by taste (at least to me) but very smooth floral taste.

Best before 12 20 16

Served in a nonic pint, it pours a hazy yellow, opaque and amber-like.
It forms a three-finger ecru head, creamy and frothy with excellent retention.
Some very strong lacing becomes visible as soon as the head starts to give in, which never actually withers completely, rather, a permanent bubblery froth crowns the beer.

The bouquet is quite nice.
Slightly toasted malts. Caramel, honey-like sweetness, pine resin, subtle citrus zest, fruits as in mango, guayaba, tropical fruit, pineapple, and mild spices
It lacks the strength of some prime examples of the style, though.

Very nice flavor.
Moderate yet pleasing carbonation.
The malty backbone is very strong, it lurks constantly beneath all the hoppy flavors, balancing them and providing a freshening sweetness. Such malty flavors are perfectly intertwined with the pine and fruity flavors, which are mango, tropical fruit, lychees and pineapple. Very complex and freshening.
Afterwards, the bitterness becomes overly strong, and some earthy notes are perceptible.
The finish is long and semi-dry.
Medium to light body, smooth and silky.

Very good beer.

Clear light amber color with two fingers of off-white airy head that sticks around well enough, finally drops to healthy thin cap. Stone fruit and pine aroma. Flavor doesn't quite pop like some but is good regardless with sappy bitterness with some light citrus sweetness, peach, and a dirty almost coffee-like bitterness in the finish. Light-medium body, soda-like carbonation, lingering bitter aftertaste, fairly drinkable. The aftertaste really starts to remind me of coffee bitterness after a while, which was an interesting touch. Good beer. I would have it again, little over carbonated for my taste. But solid otherwise. I would love to have it super fresh.

Light amber draught pour with thick off white head, quick cap and some lacing. Grapefruit nose. Dull earthy hops flavor followed by lightly bitter citrus. Medium lite mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Dull, lightly bitter linger. Overall, just ok.
