Maybe one of the best Colombian beers. Is not the regular one that you can get at the convenience store. The flavor is balanced, and you can taste the hops at the end just like you expect from an IPA.

Clear, deep golden pour with a white head. The aroma has citrus with some faint earthy notes. It has a light, oily body with lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a smooth texture and easy finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white head. Clear deep yellow body. Malty caramelly citric aroma with strawy notes. Dry caramelly strawy and resiny taste with mealy notes. Watery mouthfeel. Thin-bodied. Dry resiny mealy citric aftertaste doesn’t last. Nice, pleasant, and drinkable, but a bit watery. (0.33l bottle bought in Colombia by a colleague.)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very inviting hop and malt aroma, flowery.
Flowers, dust and alittle pine flavour, it get dryer towards the tail. A bit thin.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is probably the first IPA brewed in Colombia. And it is also a good first attempt. Like any IPA, this beer has a pronounced herbal flavor, some floral scent and a very powerful bitter taste. This beer is matured for two weeks and has 5 ° alcohol proof.
Good work with the hops, could´ve been better on the cereals. If you enjoy bitter Ales, you´ll like this beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A golden amber IPA with a thin creamy and lacing white head. In aroma, pleasan citrusy hops, pinhey and floral, quite surprising. In mouth, a classy IPA (or is it an APA) with biscuitty malt, floral and citrusy, resinous and pungeant, light menthol notes, almost getting into Imperial IPA territory. Excellent. A Colombian hop bomb. On tap at brewpub, July 9th 2010.
