3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Villeneuve Wines. Hazy orange body with a medium white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of orange, honey and a faint cardboard note. Flavour of caramel, orange and apricot. Not quite punchy enough for an IPA. Medium body with an oily texture. Nice fizz. It’s perfectly drinkable, but it doesn’t really taste of much.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very beautifull orange beer with a long lasting white head. The taste and especially the aroma does unfortunately not quite live up to the appearance, but i would say that it is a beer that grows on you. Some hops, but not as bitter as i normaly like my IPA’s. Notes of citrus, pine and quite a lot of caramelish sweetnes. A little undertaste of iron as well, but otherwise a very standard IPA, that, as the name suggests, can be drunk most of the day and for most things.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 500ml from S.H Jones, Banbury. Clouded gold with white head. Sweetish, malty beer, quite lager like in character, some graininess with a light lemony note, hints of resin perhaps but no major hop impact. Thinnish but reasonable drinking. Certainly no IPA in my book, more sweet blonde.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draught and Frankie’s Shenzhen in the proper Brewers & Union imperial glassware. Pours hazy apricot color. The head is white, big bubble foamy, cool and lasting. The aroma is bitter apricot, not sweet. Mellow palate. Very cold and awesome. A traditional IPA with low carbonation. Great light, fruity beginning that’s quickly overshadowed by bitterness. Aftertaste is practically non-existent save for some limestone mineral. A real treat in Shenzhen! This beer is very good and its an all dayer!
