My first APA from Germany - American-style craft beers are popping up all over the world, that much is clear. Single hop beer, hopped with Citra, which is infamous for being volatile and unfortunately, the bottle has just passed its best before date. Milky, yellowish white, finely structured head leaving a consistent veil and a steady rim, colour hazy light peach blonde with a vague greenish hue to it. Aroma still shows off a lot of Citra, this has clearly been kept in cool conditions in order to preserve its delicate bouquet for as long as possible: I still get quite a lot of tangerine, lime, lychee, passion fruit, ripe peach, hints of freshly toasted bread, cedar needles, dry banana, raw rhubarb, pear, baker’s yeast or even some sourdough. Crisp onset of apricot, redcurrant and passion fruit, sweetish and sourish, gentle, with a medium carbo effect, just a tiny bit minerally; smooth and slick mouthfeel with lean, supple body, nicely honeyishly malt sweet with the malted wheat coming through subtly as a subtle ’basic’ sourishness which actually supports the hops quite well. Finishes in aromatic and only lightly bittering hoppiness, very citrussy (with even a delicate lemon blossom fragrance) and juicy, a bit spicy even, with medium duration and somewhat oily feel but allowing enough malt sweetness to come through to establish the malts-hops balance you’ll find in any good APA (rather than IPA). I am convinced this is a lot more appealing young, when the aromatic citrus hops are at their best, but at this age this is still very enjoyable, straightforward (as any APA) and very quenching on a day of over 30° C.

CorBon (9) - - MAY 18, 2015 does not count
Very refreshing, light IPA. Great for summer. Intensive citra aroma and taste. Alcohol on the light side - so not a very deep experience. Still my favorite Hopfenstopfer.
