This brew bursts with hop character while still achieving a sublime balance due to a firm, robust malt backbone. It is a cross between an English-style and American-style India Pale Ale that is full-bodied and refreshing all at once.

Citrus aroma and mild flavour, strong hops taste too. A good IPA, with a little twist, well worth a try.

MSBrindbergs (627) - Solna, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2015
Flaska från De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Grumlig rödbrun vätska med mastigt ljusbrunt skum. Mycket malt och karamell i doften. Smakar engelsk men med mer citrus. Är lite humletrött pga av ålder tyvärr.

I have to be honest and state that I was disappointed by the appearance of this beer. A hazy body with a covering of cream coloured head and a miasma of sizeable sedimentary flakes in the bottle. The initial impression of a vinous quality to the aroma that said that this bottle had sat for too long on the shelf. However, I quite like a bit of age in my beer and as I got on it became quite gratifying. The full body released desserty qualities and masses of APA style West Coast hoppiness. However, the overall impression was a bit of a let-down though.

I grekisk mytologi är Lethe glömskans flod. Om du undrar hur det är att dra en kallsup där - som inget minne överlever - finns nu en simulator, skapad av japanska ölforskare, som heter Teikoku IPA. Det smakar som jag vet inte vad. Denna minneslucka är plomberad tills livet blåser revelj. Öppnas först på räkenskapens dag.

R4N5H (386) - SINGAPORE - JUL 5, 2015
Beerfest Asia, Singapore on 25/06/15. 33cl bottle, shared. Slightly hazy amber colour with an off-white head. Medium body and carbonation. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, with citrus and hop notes. Bittersweet flavour, which continues to the finish. A malty backbone, with caramel and citrus flavour, and a good hop profile.

CacheManyHose (421) - HONG KONG - JUN 13, 2015
Part or Matt's 31st birthday haul. Very cloudy, muddy tan-brown. Off-white creamy fizzy head. Smells of musty caramel/toffee malt, butterscotch popcorn, peanuts. Tastes of musty grassy hoppy, very slightly vegetal and caramel. Body is thin-to-medium. Looks, smells and tastes not fresh - bottle is 10 months old - so this may not be a fair or representative rating.

HKdIPA (489) - HONG KONG - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle from Bottle Shop at home (8/2014 bottle date so a bit old). Very cloudy dark brown amber pour with thick chunky head. Unappealing. Aroma is cereal bread malt, some faint pine hops. Taste is generic hoppy bitterness followed by murky maltiness. Not great. Again, probably old, but still. Wouldn't get again.
