Strong grapefruit aroma thate bodes well. Powerful hoppy, citrusy flavours and a light palate make this crisp and refreshing. Hats off to these guys for packing so much flavour into a session strength beer ! Had this on tap in the "Rosses I Torrades" shop in Barcelona after a trudge through the Spanish sun and boy did it do me good.

Rubia y con abundante y persistente espuma. Cuerpo medio, medio ligero, muy bebible. En aroma es fuertemente lupulada, cítrica, no muy compleja. En sabor también destaca el lúpulo, con amargor moderado y duradero. Quizás demasiado lupulada para su estilo pero muy rica y bebible.

For me, the best beer brewed in my Country. Fruity, citrus, hops, medium bitterness and so refreshing and easy drinking.

Botella de 330ml. Copa de Vino. Una explosion de frutas tropicales y cítricos al destapar. Color latón y apariencia cristalina. Espuma blanca, corona tupida y amplio anillo en las paredes. Sorprendente aroma de notas florales, fruta madura y resinas subyacentes. La agradable entrada con sabores de galleta es barrida por un intenso amargor cítrico. El cuerpo en medio/ligero y la carbonatación entre moderada y moderadamente alta. Textura densa con sensación reseca y resinosa. Final seco y amargo. Retrogusto afrutado con un toque picante que deja sensaciones y recuerdos de zumo de naranja. Una deliciosa y sobresaliente elaboración!! 330ml bottle. Wine glass. Tropical fruit & citric explosion as cap is removed. Brass color, clear appearance. White foam, close crown & wide ring left. Amazing smelling displays floral notes, ripe fruit & resins on the back. Kind biscuit maltiness at first sip is swept out by intense citric bitterness. Medium to light body. Moderate to moderate-high carbonation. Oily, resinous & dried sensation. Dry bitter finish & long fruity with spicy touch aftertaste. Orange juice flavors & memories. Delightful good job!!

330ml bottle from Rosses i Torrades, Barcelona. Recommended as ’the’ Catalan beer to try. Pretty lively out of the bottle and poured with a huge white head despite my attempts to be careful, quite possible that I’d shaken it up a bit I suppose. Attractive looking beer, beautiful grassy hop aromas on the nose, very inviting. Taste was very bitter, grapfruit dominates with pine and grass, bitter finish. Bit too much bitter grapefruit in this for my money. Decent.

Great catalan craft beer , the best I’ve tasted so far for sure. Makes me think of the first Punk IPA. Highly recommended!
