33cl bottle. Wheat and barley malt providing strong body and brown colour. White and durable head that turns into light brown. First taste of pineaples evolving into citrus for ending with hoppy character. The initial fruit taste is not so perdurable in mouth.

rayaron (558) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JAN 16, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2015 Bottle sample at a tasting at zvsn’s place. Thanks tomer. Cloudy deep orange with medium yellowish head. Hoppy aroma, tropical fruits, notes of bubble gum, light maltiness, some herbs, "green" with faint garlic notes. Sweet-bitter flavor, light maltiness, grassy, tropical fruits, some citrus notes with bitter finish, a bit stale. Moderate carbonation, medium-bodied. Kinda homebrew but fun to drink.

Wow a solid tropical IPA indeed, and a very distinctive one at that. Pours an average bronze slightly cloudy appearance, white head, standard. Aroma is a rich sweet tropical resiny hoppy mix of flavors, very pleasant. Taste is as expected a range of tropical hoppy flavors, including grapefruit, mango, peach, and an interesting flavor that strikes me as akin to fresh lime, something I don't think I've come across before. Also solidly bitter, and caramel malt contrast to round things out. A bit more carbonation than usual, medium bodied. Finishes pleasantly dry. Quite enjoyable. Although I find this brand's allusions to Spain's Islamic heritage ironically amusing, considering the disapproval of alcoholic beverages in the Islamic tradition. Regardless, a quality beer.

loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Ambrée légèrement orangée. Mousse ivoire qui dure, consistante, laisse dépôts sur les parois. Carbonation modérée. Arôme houblonné et de fruits tropicaux. Entrée en bouche suave cassée par une amertume résineuse contendante qui s’équilibre en fin de bouche. Les malts toastés apportent une certaine onctuosité et corps. Magnifique bière, la meilleure bière espagnole que je ne connaisse... en attendant de goûter la Imperial IPA de Medina.

Bouteille (gracias, Jonas!): Deep golden to light amber coloured, hazy, some - but not too many - floaties, huge loose but rocky off-White head; caramel and exotic fruits in the nose with a slight yeasty Background; moderate to solid dryish bitter flavour with a slight sweet touch, light bodied and a bit tart; dryish (exotic) fruity and caramelly finish with a tart aftertaste. Quite tasty...

vipinvelp (2632) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2014
Slightly opaque with light brown lacing foam head. Quite a hoppy aroma. Taste is real bitter with some fruity and nutty tones there. Short but high bitter aftertaste. (Madrid 201405)

En botella. Color anaranjado oscuro. espuma poco duradera Aroma intenso a frutas tropicales. En boca la fruta deja paso a una entrada fuerte de un cítrico amargor, toques herbales y resinosos. Final amargo y seco. Cuerpo medio. Agradable.
