This bottle came courtesy of Zize. Thanks cara!

With a name like Hop Arabica, one could easily assume that this is a hop and coffee bomb. Not quite. In fact, there's little hoppiness found, but there's no shortage of coffee. In fact, the light base beer allows the coffee to pull through and give the beer unique spicy notes that I can't find in stronger imperialized coffee beers. And it's light enough that I suspect it could be used to start one's morning.

Golden color with a thick head with short retention, but leaving laces.
Aroma combining homemade coffee and citrus hops.
Likewise, predominant flavor of mild homemade coffee and citrusy hops. Notes of butter, pale malt, guaraná powder, orange peel and tangerines. Dry and bitter aftertaste. It sure feels bitter than the stated 10 IBUs, maybe is the coffee speaking.
Light body with good carbonation.
Pretty decent, toasted notes, but still refreshing. Even though, I would have liked it better with espresso coffee notes rather than light coated coffee. Worth trying.
I found the version made by Cervejaria Nacional and the Coffee Lab, Pingado IPA, much more interesting. Though, it is an unfair comparison once the brew master from Odell contributed with a superb IPA base.
