El nombre es bastante descriptivo, pues se trata de una Indian Pale Ale en la que destaca el aroma y sabor a frutas tropicales que le aportan la combinación de lúpulos utilizada. Este aroma y sabor deja después paso a ciertos toques a malta caramelizada para terminar con un moderado amargor (45 IBU) Su cuerpo es medio, tiene 6 grados de alcohol y un color tostado, un poco más que la Gringaza 30.

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.

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.

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)

GBZ59 (1181) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - SEP 7, 2013
Grifo. Cáliz pequeño. Ambar y velada coronada por una espuma marfileña, cremosa, tupida, con bastante buena retención que deja copos en las paredes. Aromas intensos de resinas, albaricoque maduro y mango. Una entrada suave que queda anegada por un contundente amargor resinoso. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada. Paladar untoso con un toque picante. La cremosidad de la malta tostada y los sabores afrutados - maduros y de fruta tropical-, en el intermedio, equilibran los lúpulos. Prolongado final amargo y sabroso. Una buena y divertida experiencia !! On-tap. Small Goblet glass. Veiled amber headed by off-white foam, creamy & close that shows fairly good retention & leaves spots on sides. Intense aromas of resins, ripe apricot & mango. Smooth upfront is ovewhelmed by sharp resiny bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Untuous palate & spicy touch. Toasted malt creaminess & fruit flavors -ripe & tropical fruit - balance hops in the middle. Long bitter & flavorful finish. Nice & funny experience!!
