I’d rate this as one of the best English IPA’s I’ve had. Big and loaded with Hop resin. I had a fresh bottle (from the label), and it was just bursting with hop goodness, with a great IPA length that is true to style

Bottle at a friend’s. Really strongly hopped but not in an overpowering way. Somewhat herbaceous, citrus to balance. Awesome beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Cloudy orange color with a long-lasting, one finger-tail sized white good lacing head. Citrus, spices, orange peel, passion fruit. Bitterness rose on the palate, backbone is malty, followed with very bitter finish.The after taste is moderate. Medium-bodied, average carbonation. The hop is so fresh and the stone fruit just broke out!! Much better than other IPA i have ever tried. Reasonable price with excellent taste. Cheers!

Tastes like dried malted barley with a sticky bitterness. Rather strong for its lower ABV. Good body. Good IPA on the heavy side but not over the top.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2016 0,33L bottle bought at the Bottle Shop Hong Kong.
Appearance: Pours a hazy amber colour, with medium creamy white head and beautiful lacing.
Aroma: Fruity and hoppy aroma of mango, grapefruit and passionfruit from the NZ hop ( probably Nelson Sauvin), with some lemon and citrus notes from the Amarillo and Citra hops. There is some malty, piney and resin backbones
Taste: Medium citrus bitterness and malty flavour with some light grapefruit sourness.
Palate: Medium body with balance and subtle bitterness. Dry and crisp finish with citrus and some tropical fruits aftertaste.
Overall: A really solid and lively IPA. The aroma and the flavour are perfectly balanced with juicy tropical fruits note and malty and piney backbone. Really outstanding.

Bouteille de 33 cl. Arômes de citrus très intense immédiatement après avoir servi, mais qui se dissipe ensuite. Robe orange pâle, mousse généreuse blanche mais éphémère. Bon niveau de carbonation. En bouche, on retrouve étonnamment peu les arômes de houblon, malgré l’amertume qui revient à la fin. Bon niveau de corps qui vient balancé amertume et alcool.
