4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear copper colour with foamy big head on top and its lasts relatively long time. Leaves beautiful lacing. Aroma has grapefruits, citrus, pines and some caramel sweetness. A typical West Coast here. Taste has quite much caramel malts, pines, grapefruits and some other sweeter fruits. Body is surprisingly full and carbonation is medium-to-light. Slightly sweeter IPA, but definitely an excellent beer in the West Coast style.

Very consistent, right now I’m drinking this on a nightly basis. This is pretty much IPA perfection, and is pretty much everything I want in an IPA. Decidedly better in bottle than on tap. Unfortunately I can’t find it in bottle anywhere other than Julio’s Liquors. Will stock up soon for the summer before going back home, thinking ~20 bottles, ~$200, hope that will be enough.

Clear amber; medium frothy white head; appetizing appearance. Incredible aroma, lots of grapefruit, passionfruit. Easy to gulp down; medium bitterness, white grapefruit, slightly powdery texture. On the dry side but carrying a lot of flavor. This hits you in the same way that peeling a grapefruit releases its aromatics. Exceptional IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at WilliamK, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a big frothy head. Aroma is rich in tropical fruitiness; peach, passion and orange mix, also some pine and floral notes. Taste is initially sweet, but hoppy bitterness appears in the middle and the finish is typically dry and very bitter. Rich exotic fruitiness dominates the taste with at least peach, apricot and mango featuring with the usual citrus. The palate is medium bodied and slick. Overall this is a very rich and varied IPA with strong tropical fruitiness.

In the bottle in Seoul. Decent IPA, but was overhyped and didn't live up the expectation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. No clear date on this. Pours a nice clear golden color with a nice frothy head. Aroma is big bold citrus, grapefruit, orange. Flavor is orange, some grapefruit, and a sweet malty biscuitiness. Well-balanced. Nice pleasant and very slightly slick mouthfeel. I feel this would be better rated if on tap.
