Pour is a burnt orange with an off white head. Little bit of mango and hop bitterness on the nose, peach, an almost spicy character too, and a nice bready malt character. Taste is somewhat bitter, lots of tropical fruit, quite sweet, with a nice bit of malt, and there’s a grassy spiciness to it as well. Medium bodied, good beer although I’d think they could do better given they brew one of the best IPA’s out there.

Bärnstensfärgad med stort ljust skum! Massor med tropisk humle men även malt i doften! Humlig och lite malt i smaken och bra balans och kolsyra! Mycket bra bra öl!

pours hazy pale orange with a small off-white head, some retetion and lacing. resin, citrus, pine, spicy lightly toasted malts, silky caramel, oranges and otehr fruits, hint of cacao (!). some sweetness - a tad too much. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily and a bit sticky, bold if not harsh grassy-citrusy-spicy finish. tad unbalanced, sort of sweet and bland. blah. disappointing.

On draft. Golden hue. No aroma. Unusual flavor profile of alcoholly honey chased by a clear (but not Green Flash West Coast level) chocolate malt presence. Plenty of alcohol A much better beer than my oRB score will indicate.

Sweet, hoppy. Solid IPA. On tap at Magpies in Seoul. Only IPA in the ROK. Very good on a cold Korean night...slight alcoho warming and high alcohol makes this good.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy dark orange with minimal head. Aroma of citrus and pine with a hint of sweet malt. Taste is heavily bitter. Citrus and pine resin with grapefruit and a solid malt backbone. Full bodied with a thick sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a super long, bitter citrus finish. Overall, very good. Would love to try this one super fresh though.

Pours a nice apricot ale with a central dome and rim of light tan foam. Smells of caramel, honeydew, resin, tangerines, some pineapple and honey. Nice nose. Flavor is sweet with plenty of toffee, resin, grapefruit, tangerine again and some mango. I like the flavor. Medium body on light syrup with moderate carb and an off dry finish. I like this beer. I am surprised by this beer (for no real reason)

Bottle, shared with GCDP. Hazy deep golden, verging on light amber, with a thick white head. Beautiful hop bouguet here, a mixture of pine and tropical fruit, and with a lovely spicy undertone in the lengthy bitter finish. Oily and moderately resinous, heavy mouthfeel. Densely flavoured, delicious.
