3fourths (9406) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2016 Bottle best by April 2016. Mostly clear reddish-orange (closer to 25 SRM than 15) with a short white head of little retention. Aroma is malty in the way crystal malt and baked apples, hoppy in the way of grapefruit, apricot, pine sap, cedar. Medium bodied, sweet and candy-like with palpable bitterness and a harsh, crunchy texture. The malt is nicely savory and the body is plump but it seems to need more conditioning to take away the edge. Complaints aside, it’s actually well-made, nothing is grossly off or unbalanced, and the aroma hops have more depth than you find in most American-made IPAs. Still this isn’t the type of beer I go for (crystal malt, fruity-resinous American hops), but for Costa Rica it’s certainly a level up in quality over the other available "craft" beers. bu11zeye (13289) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2016
