jkwood04 (5165) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 24, 2012
500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma strong of pine and citrus hops plus a good amount of caramel malts. Flavor about the same, really hoppy. Average to smooth texture. A good beer, but could be thicker and better balanced.

adasko (1522) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 23, 2016
Fresh NZ hops in the aroma - oily and fruity notes. Almost clear golden color. Small white head, perfect lacing. Nice thick body, not exactly full but close to that. It’s a bit to sweet in taste. There is a big lack of bitterness which would counter the sweetness. It’s definitely not a session beer, more like setting and sipping one. Very good one.

RhetoricalAns (766) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 20, 2016
500 mL bottle. Clear light amber pour, couple fingers of semi creamy head. Big hop aroma (and taste), very tropical, grassy. Excellent, wish I had had a west coast brew to compare it to.

On tap. Standard IIPA with stock aroma and taste and booze you’d expect from this style. Bit of a shame its so average

I just love it. The smell of citrus fruits and flowers. Rich ambler color and its subtle caramel aroma is also very attractive. Malty and hoppy.

Citrus, floral, malty scent. Standard golden color. Nice blending of malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness.

drjoeng (619) - SINGAPORE - MAR 5, 2016
8.8%ABV. Imperial IPA. Tapped out a rich amber. 16°SRM. Nose has nice rich pine freshness. There is also the aroma of ripe pineapple and sweet citrus, like ripe tangerines or Yuzu. There is also a residual sweet maltiness to the nose. Very inviting. Mouthfeel is soapy. The palate is graham cracker, caramel, burnt sugar and toasty malt sweet. A good base upon which to taste the hops which are pine, grass, light resin and sap. Finish is medium and satisfying. Goes on Favorites List!

rain00i (15) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - MAR 2, 2016
Subtle caramel aroma is very attractive. Clear golden color grabs your eyes and a very smooth malty taste is very well balanced with slightly bitter taste. Better than I’ve expected!

chupachups01 (38) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - MAR 2, 2016
Poured into Teku from bottle. This is a strong beer. A heavy one for hop lovers, not my particular style. Aroma is sweet with bitter hops. Thin white head. Solid for this style.

Served in 500ml bottle at THE BEER MASONS on Koh Tao, aroma of caramel and pine, nice dry and bitter, just the way i like it. If you fancy IIPA this is the one.
