500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that settles to reveal some really nice lacing. Aroma is mild but pleasant with citrus (pineapple and grapefruit?) and some hints of caramel. Taste is a bold bitterness with grapefruit dominating and a fruity and malty sweetness. Flavors are nicely balanced, body is medium and carbonation is adequate. A very solid brew for the style and highly recommended.

Bottle. Golden pour. Delicious aroma of fruity hops. Taste is very hoppy of course, with notes of citrus, passionfruit, lime and pine. Good malty body. Long finish with fruity bittes notes. Very good.

One of my favorites ever. So this proves I like IPA's! Very hoppy but balanced perfectly with citrus grapefruit and not overpowering. Clear golden colour. Thin head disappears quickly. A quality beer. Will buy as many as I can.

bulldogops (1108) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
Rating #1100 - May 24, 2014 - Clear golden pour with a bubbly white foam, spotty lacing. FRUIT BOMB! Nose is tangerine, pineapple, essentially the tropics in a blender. Mouthfeel crisp, mild alcohol warmth, low-medium carbonation. Taste is sweet orangey/tangerine notes with the spicy tang and hoppy bite. Finishes bone dry, and with some piney, resin afterburners. Mucho gusto.

Bottle. Hazy dark amber pour with white head. Aroma has lots of malt and hoppy freshness. Taste has a nice kick of bitterness. Very nice

Brentv (401) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Purchased and drunk in Xiamen, China at the recommendation of the proprietor of the Beer Station. Bottle pours a hazy orange with a big whitish head and lots and lots of lacing on the glass. Huge aroma of citrus and pine with strong floral notes, as well. Taste is also huge - citrus and very bitter with a good malty sweetness, but not too much. Medium oily mouthfeel and a dry mild bitter finish. This beer is a masterpiece. Delicious.

From the bottle at a tasting session in Tap 66, Xiamen. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of pine. Bittersweet finish. Got better as it went down.
