COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is an homage to the travels of so many people that came to the US for a better future. A place where with hard work you can have a few bucks to spare for this really great brew! Brewed with four different types of hops all with different citric notes; Mandarin, Lemon, Grapefruit and Lime all complement each other to create a citric bomb!

Golden/Orange on the pour with a lemon and a slight sweet aroma. It goes down fairly smooth with lingering notes of lemon/orange flavors and to me, the hops don’t kick in until the very end.

Bottle from Mexicanos in Christchurch, NZ. Pretty well rounded IPA with some serious depth and character. Caramel notes, musty cellar door, sharp finish. Packs a punch. Definitely worth a try! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kapusil (780) - HUNGARY - NOV 5, 2014
0.355l bottle. Hazy amber body, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toast and piny, citrusy hops. Taste of caramel, toast, pine, grass and a decent amount of grapefruit. The aftertaste is quite bitter. Nice IPA.

BLADT (680) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle in Mexico DF. Cloudy wheat color. Study white head. Strange perfume of canned fruit cocktail. Tropical. Mandarin too. Taste lacks structure. Bitter, but why? Needs focus.

HKdIPA (457) - HONG KONG - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle at City Tacos in SD. Very malty aroma. Taste is very very malty with a slight bitterness - disappointing IPA. More like a very malty pale ale with little hops.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy medium amber with a good 1" rocky head (after things have settled), mottled stripes of lace. Taste is caramel malt that is challenged, but not overcome, by citrus bittering midway through the palate. Both sides exit together, but as the swallow lingers, malt asserts itself once again. I suppose it is an IPA, albeit not a strong one. Very drinkable, good with food.

veronneaupy (241) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Un nez un peu piquant de piment. Un peu houblonné et un bon goût de grain. J'ai apprécié ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brewfoolery (33) - California, USA - APR 10, 2014
Served in a pint glass at Graciela, Taller de Cerveza in Mexico City. Subdued nose with virtually no hop aroma, could be the glass. Base malt clean with slight bread crust flavor. Bittering hops come through in the mouth and aftertaste. Citrus including grapefruit and lemon peel is refreshing and leaves clean lingering biter note.
