3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A-- Poured a clear, light orange amber color. Bright white one finger head. Great staying power to the head. Even better with swirling as got two fingers of head. Nice fluffy head that when recedes leaves lots of spotty and soapy lacing. Nice.
S-- Break this down two ways. In the bottle got a lot of bubblegum in the nose. Very vibrant smell. In the glass a lot of tropical sorbet. Peach, lime, guava, orange and soft grapefruit. in the glass it is slightly muted. Not as fresh as the bottle nose.
T-- Forward pine, grapefruit and orange bitterness, though getting slightly muted due to the age of the beer. Still shows flashes of what this can be.
M-- Medium feel and medium carbonation. Not as oily as it should be and showing lots of overripe orange, pine and grapefruit. malt backbone makes appearances in the feel as a good amount of toffee are well balanced with the fruits. Good citrus sorbet finish but it is showing it’s age.
O-- It’s old. Say that up front. Perfectly serviceable though. Shows flashes of what it was and that is more than enough. hides the alcohol well and something that would work in a big way in this climate. if Australia got fresh Big Eye watch out. Shows its age in the feel so the downgrade. Otherwise a world class IPA

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

355ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen on 28 Oct. Pours hazy orange amber with a white head. Aroma of pine with a little citrus and sweaty feet. A typically over hopped IPA, ok but is it enjoyable? Will try again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a nice light orange with two finger beige-white head. Scent is heavy orange and sweet pine. Taste is a bit on the malty side but also a bit spicy, which I’m finding is what keeps this beer interesting. Bitterness is average. Actually smells great and tastes very good, but it is a hair too malty.

Clear gold. Ample head of foam.
Piney nose with some cracker like nose. Hints of lemon.
Taste matches the smell. Delightful and very approachable IPA.
