1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
light amber. smell is "hoppy" in some regard but very odd. kind of along the lines of "cat pee" which some hops get. malt quality tastes poor or mixed with corn or something. the strange smell, like if you rotted cascades in a trash bin and used them is overwhelming. it’s barely drinkable and for the price of one small can i could get a litre of slightly better korean BMC style beer.
after having this, i really wouldn’t bother with the rest of their stuff. it’s almost difficult to make a bad IPA.

Sampled on draft after accidentally stumbling Into the brewpub. Pretty decent when you haven’t had a decent beer in a while. nothing amazing. Kinda like a very old fairly bitter pale ale. Mild englishy earthy hop flavor with caramel and a bitter bite on the tail.But still, its Korea, so I really wasn’t expecting much.

It’s not an IPA, more like a weak Pale Ale, but much better than the mass marketed Korean beers. Easy to drink, but not complicated or hoppy enough for the targeted market.

5.5% it pours amber with a light beige head of foam. The aroma is mostly caramel malt with a hint of hops. The flavor is light citrus, bugging malty sweet body and a mild acidic, slightly bitter finish. An ok beer but no way is this an IPA. More of a brown ale or possibly a watered down UK type of IPA from 10 years ago... Unfortunately, tha aftertaste seems quite sour and not so pleasant. A shame for the first canned microbrew widely available in South Korea... Other than that aftertaste it wasn’t half bad...
