Emotions...

Don't mistake my words: I like to try most of the beers I come across. Still, I've always been critical with those brews that seem to just want to stand out. Even when these experimental beers are really appealing (my paradigmatic example is Crème Brûlée Stout by Emelisse), I'm still more on the side of -put as many quotations as needed- "normal" beer. And for brewers to have a core range of beers (particularly, I think it also has some strong business reasons).

But one day you grab a beer, uncap it and pour this quite malty IPA that has yet another special twist. Among its ingredients there's pine resin. I had Piris Resin Old School IPA with two of the people in charge at Instituto de la Cerveza Artesana, where this beer is brewed. I also drink one at home, on a warm summer night. Leaving apart the evolution it's had in two months, the sensation is exactly the same.
