Alien Klaw tasting notes
Alien Klaw by Naparbier is a Belgian IPA—a IPA fermented with Belgian yeast. It has a floral hoppy aroma and taste characteristic of the IPAS, given by Saphir, Simcoe and Chinook hops, and some spicy and yeasty character that gives it the Belgian touch. A good mixture between tradition and modernity by Naparbier!
Modern IPA's are decidedly hoppy and bitter, with strong hoppy and floral aromas, specially from American hops such as Citrus and Mosaic. Some versions are dry-hopped to get an even more intense aroma. Its color ranges from medium-gold to amber and even to dark brown and black in the case of Black IPA's. The body is medium-light and the ABV is not very high, in the range of 5 to 7,5% ABV. The English styles have a more sweet character derived of the malts used (giving them a caramel, bread, and toast touch).
