COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dice la leyenda que en un pequeño pueblecito, dentro de un valle y cruzado por un río, cada año por las fiestas del equinocio de primavera, un ejército de jóvenes con ganas de fiesta suben a una montaña cargados de cervezas hasta una ermita. Lo hacen des pues del Viacrucis, pero ellos lo llaman Birrakrucis.

La ViaKrucis es un homenaje a estos jóvenes penitentes que año tras año y cruz tras cruz, suben a la montaña hasta la ermita de San Salvador, Súria.

Maltas: Pilsen, Carahell>
Lúpulos: Tomahawk, Summit, Citra

aran (5) - - NOV 23, 2012
Really fruity aroma, like mango fruit. Very bitter, like a really IPA. This bitterness gives way to resin taste and floral aroma.

cecile_schmitt (16) - Köln, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2017
Geröstetes goldenes Bier mit anhaltendem weißen Schaum. Mango-Aromen, tropische Früchte, Zitrusfrüchte und Vanille. Geschmack von bitteren und fruchtigen Hopfen, Noten von cremigem Malz und trockenem Finish. Eine indische Pale Ale ganz gut, wirklich erstaunlich.

Drank 09-08-17 while writing. Drink cold! Not bad, but quite harsh, one-dimensional bitter. Not really balanced or pleasant to just drink. On the other hand you can taste that this beer does what it was meant to do, it’s not a bad american IPA.

Fules (1303) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 25, 2017
Kicsi, gyorsan eltuno hab, félbarna szín. Édeskés, déligyümölcsös, barackos illat. Édes, barackos, déligyümölcsös ízvilág. Közepesen testes, közepesen szénsavas, erosen keseru. Kissé édes ipának, de kellem, tisztességesen összerakott sör.

kaserov (874) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2017
Color dorado anaranjado, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa y ligeramente chispeante. Extraño aroma: peladura de naranja, mandarina, lima, limón, melocotón, algo de malta caramelizada y un potente olor que remite a cebolla recién cortada. En boca vuelven a tener mucha presencia el melocotón, la mandarina, la lima y la peladura de naranja (menos la cebolla, aunque perceptible). Malta caramelizada sutil a mitad de trago. Final de amargor leve y ligeramente resinoso que recuerda a una tónica. Seca. En boca, entre trago y trago, quedan resina y frutas, así como un toque herbal. Curiosa y bien hecha (el que vaya buscando una típica West Coast saldrá decepcionado).

Alengrin (5535) - BELGIUM - MAY 24, 2017
"American IPA" from this exciting brewery near Barcelona, bottle of close to three months old from Etre Gourmet. Medium sized, egg-white, irregular head leaving a membrane of lacing around the edge and a landmap-like pattern in the middle, thinning out quickly, over a clear ’old gold’ coloured beer with warmer, pale orangey tinge, a bit deeper orangey and more misty with sediment. Aroma of moist old biscuit, old dried orange peel, dried wormwood or lemonbalm leaves, green peppercorns, olive oil, sweet mandarin piercing through, capers, bitter honey, parsley, raw carrot, old straw, wet paper, old bread crust, Italian sweet red onions, fresh garlic even (must be the Summit, quite obviously), lemon verbena (must be the Citra), hint of caramel deep below and something very, very vaguely ’rusty’. Crisp, lively onset, fruity in a clean way, some sweetish dried apricot and unripe banana interwoven with a sourish lemonbalm leaf-like aspect, sharpish carbonation accentuating the sourish aspect rather than the sweetish one and coarsening the mouthfeel a bit, slick and bit oily body. A somewhat salty, caper-like touch in the middle is unmistakably connected with the hops and evolves into full-fledged hop bitterness even before the finish, passing through a biscuity, smooth malt sweetish core. This hop bitterness has a resiny, tonic water- and dried grapefruit-peel-like character, coating the back of the mouth entirely but releasing only modest retronasal aromas of the white underside of an orange peel, some light mandarin and toasted onion - again, the Summit is piercing through the delicate Citra and the more versatile Tomahawk, the latter of which has clearly - and properly - been used as the bittering hop and is probably the one most responsible for the strong, peppery, resiny, ’tonic water-y’ bittering aspect in the mouth, only accentuating the Summit and Citra. I miss the Citra a bit though the lemonbalm- and mandarin-like aspects of it are still very much there, but at three months of age I suppose the oniony qualities of the Summit have retained more power so this is still very palatable and ’lively’ aromatic even for a beer vaguely referred to as "American IPA" - which says virtually nothing these days considering its many variants, but I assume the old ’standard IPA’ with its West Coast origins has been intended here. Viewed as such, this performs very well in my book, a bit generic perhaps, but quenching, thoroughly bittering, aromatic and appetizing as any decent 21st-century IPA should be. It is more than clear to me that Pirata knows what it’s doing and Naparbier aside, this is the best Spanish craft brewery to date for me, at least until I get to better know the repertoires of Edge, Laugar, Guineu, In Peccatum, Domus and hundreds of others...
