In short: A clean, crisp and bitter citrusy golden IPA. Good beer.
How: Tap at Drunk Monk, Mataró, Spain.
The look: Clear golden body topped by a persistent small off-white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: The hoppy nose of medium intensity is bright citrusy hops over a nice fresh cereals sensation. In mouth the beer is medium body with appropriate medium carbonation, typical clean mouthfeel for this type of beer. Taste is hay-like cereals, smooth honey notes, a certain toastiness, a generous amount of fresh citrusy hops with bitter grapefruits coming out particularly strong. Very sharp bitterness of medium-high intensity. After-taste is grapefruit flesh. lemon zest and toasted bread. Another super-clean and crisp beer from Naparbier, American West-Coast style all the way. I liked this beer a lot, so I googled where to buy Hoptopus but google proposed an alternate spelling and now I really want to buy an octopus.

Botella de 33 cl en casa beni bar 13-12-13. Aromas afrutados piña naranja amarga pomelo. Sabores muy afrutados al principio seguido de Amargor resinoso discreto y contenido no muy intenso. Domina en general el sabor dulce de las frutas con un cuerpo bastante pastoso. Cuerpo ligero - medio de color turbio con espuma blanca persistente. Bastante pastosa domina generalmente el dulzor de las frutas tropicales. Muy buena, muy afrutada, imprescindible repetir.

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - OCT 9, 2013
Botella de 33cl, servida en vaso Shaker. Color naranja oscuro con persistente corona de tamaño medio, de textura entre lo cremoso y lo espumoso. Luce genial. Aroma malteado y anaranjado con notas terrosas y herbáceas. En boca se fusiona todo de tal modo que da como resultado una IPA tostada y seca, únicamente con un leve punto afrutado. Cuerpo medio, carbonatación perfecta. Buena, no obstante le falta balance. Se le puede sacar más partido al sabor.

A very enjoyable and well-hopped IPA from Napar. Aroma is floral and typical, taste is a bit mellower. Good beer from very good brewers.

33 cl bottle @ PBF VIII, BBE 07/2014
Dedicated to the memory of angsta
Aroma is sweet with caramel, exotic fruits and biscuits. Flavour has sweet fruity notes, caramel, biscuits and distant yeasty notes. Too sweet but not bad anyway.

lusikka (6206) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
330 ml bottle @ PBF 2013.
Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma of strong floral and herbal hoppy with some earthy notes. Flavour of sweet caramel, strong floral hops, grains, mild licorice root notes and biscuit. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a malty, rather strong bitter finish. The bitterness here is extremely high. Nice one.
