A complex beast of an American amber ale, initial rich toffee malt give way to big juicy hops and a long clean bitter finish.

GBZ59 (1182) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JAN 3, 2014
Botella de 330ml. Copa de Vino. Color rubí profundo y tintes burdeos a contraluz. Espuma marfil, corona tupida y fina. Aromas de malta caramelo y resinas, trazos de pan y heno con leves olores de queso por detrás. Entrada de dulce caramelo borrada por un áspero amargor, como si de un puñetazo de lúpulo se tratara. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación moderada, aunque chispeante. Los sabores afrutados del intermedio se muestran como un agradable zumo ácido y amargo, redondeado por piel cítrica y ligeras notas de madera verde. Astringente y con un final amargo y prolongado. Contundentes resinas y caramelo en el retrogusto. Aconsejable para amantes de los perfiles altos de IBUs ya que las resinas, en ocasiones desencadenadas, lo inundan todo. 330ml bottle. Wine glass. Deep ruby color, bourgogne tints to the light. Off-white froth, close & thin crown. Aromas of caramel malts & resins, bready hues, hay, slight cheese odor on the back. Sweet candy upfront swept out by harsh bitterness –hoppy punch-like-. Light body. Moderate but sparkling carbonation. Fruit flavor in the middle is shown as a gentle acidic & bitter juice rounded by citric zest & slight green wood notes. Astringent & long bitter finish. Sharp resins & caramel on the aftertaste. Suggested for high IBU lovers since sometimes unchained resins flow all over .

Frulertruler (118) - San Rafael, SPAIN - DEC 28, 2013
Botella. Cerveza bastante plana en todos los aspectos acético y seca con algo de lúpulo de por medio y poco cuerpo bastante carbónico que acentúa estos aspectos.
