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.

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.

Fra fat på CBC mai-13: dagens første øl, og en løfterik start på festivalen. Spennende med mikrobrygg fra Kina, og denne var velhumlet og frisk. Gikk tilbake senere på dagen for en påfyll.
