COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In comparison to its English counterpart it is less malty; in the range of low to medium. It is fruity and estery with some crystal malt providing a bit of residual sweetness and slight orange hue. An American Pale Ale of distinction utilizing generous hopping of American hop varieties. Near the end of fermentation this beer is lightly dry-hopped with Citra hops for additional hop aroma and flavor.

From the placard in the bar: In comparison to its English counterpart it is less malty; in the range of low to medium. It is fruity (not to my palate) and estery with some crystal malt providing a bit of residual sweetness and slight orange hue. An American Pale Ale of distinction utilizing generous hopping of American hop varieties. Near the end of fermentation this beer is lightly dry-hopped with unique hops for additional hop aroma and flavor. Great lacing on the glass. High hop aroma. A superior Pale Ale. Full body and low carbonation.

Cimbasso (328) - - OCT 5, 2014
Sampled from the cask at the Sinan Mansions location in Xintiandi, Shangha., which is a very pleasant bar/restaurant. Golden colour with a slightly orange tinge and a little bit hazy. White head. Aroma is fruity with flavours of grapefruit zest. The taste is not particularly malty, but with bags of hop flavour. Very zesty, in the American style with pronounced grapefruit notes and a long, bitter finish. A beautifully made beer with mouth-filling flavours and excellent balance. A real find in Shanghai. This beer won a gold medal the Asia Beer Cup in 2013.

Drunk on tap at CBC 2013. Superb hoppy and bitter pale ale. Tastes stronger than its ABV. Not very floral, but mightly hoppy, lightly carbonated, and delicious. One to guzzle in a hot pub.
