Clear dark yellow, huge offwhite slightly flufft head.
strong hoppy aroma, citrussy, flowery, not sweet, lots of flowery and citrussy hops. Flavor is bitter hoppy, quite bitter, some malts, but not lots of them. Taste is a bit flattish or one dimensional probably due to the low abv, but the beer is pretty refreshing and tasty. would do great as a session beer.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blonde dorée translucide, un peu de mousse blanche qui se fait rapidement oublier. Nez fruité intense de fruits exotiques : fruits de la passions, mangue, kiwi, mandarine, pamplemousse, léger côté floral. La bouche est sur les agrumes : pamplemousse, citron, mandarine, léger côté caramel. L’amertume est bien présente, peu de corps, peu d’alcool, peu de complexité. Une belle bière rafraichissante !

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wonderfully flavourful for a pale ale/session beer with a 3.8 ABV. Nose has lots of fruit, florals, malt, caramel/honey, a bit of yeast and spice. Taste is light-bodied but crisp and hoppy. Reminds me of the Brewdog Punk IPA with everything dialled a little down and the hoppiness dialled a lot down.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I was not too pleased with this IPA. It was a bit too bitter for my taste and found too little to discover in it’s aroma. Very mediocre.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beautiful clear orange color with a large amount of foam that dissipates quickly. Huge hop bomb. Grapefruity-piny aroma, a bit floral. Taste is watery, slightly bitter. Gone quickly, no aftertaste. Very light body. Refreshing. Not exactly my brew, but well made.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui during October’s “Beer Festival” promotion.
Cloudy hazy amber honey colour with lots of floating chunky yeast particles; Very thin head and residual soapy off-white foam which fades in 15 seconds; Small sticky lacing with near zero carbonation; Fragrant and sweet aroma of Ale malt, with strong tangerine, strong floral, pineapple, light grapefruit, strong honey, light blueberry, pine, lemon and grass; Very light sweet taste of moderate Ale malt, with strong grapefruit and lemon zest, faint molasses notes, pine, earth, light biscuits, yeast, bitter lime, strong bitter hops and sharp grass; Light body, thin and slick palate; Mouth feel is very solid Ale malt base with slight roastyness. Very low sweetness with strong and expressive hops take over - very zesty lemon and grapefruit, bitter lime, earth and pine - not too biscuity nor yeasty. Very well balanced. Nice!... Hoppiness is taste as above, plus very expressive tangerine, light berries, strong floral, pineapple, and honey in aroma. Strong Simcoe and Citra bitterness which grooved to your taste buds with a nice feel to it. Lasting moderate to strong astringent finish; Fairly dry after taste, very hoppy and zesty to mouth.
Comments: For a style with low profile, this one is very expressive with fragrant fruity and honey aromas, taste is zesty to the teeth, and strong but comfortable bitterness. Highly sessionable. Cheers!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours copper with small head. Strong taste of hops, some citrus and fruit. Has a very sharp taste, really liked this one, gives you a little jolt. Or a pony kick.
