Run of the mill IPA. Hops not that flavorful, really just bitter. Nothing special with this beer. Was good back when it was hard to find an IPA in Korea. If at Craftworks, their Pale Ale is the superior beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Tap at Craftworks tap house, Itaewon)
Hazy; reasonably lasting head. Aroma of sweet New World hops. Not so fruity in the taste, but this is still very hoppy and feels like a big beer in consequence. Could the hops feel burning if I were to drink a lot of this? Dunno.
A bit of pine and some kind of spiciness. Warming retronasals.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.

Lubiere (10158) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
A hazed amber ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity biscuit malt with nice floral hops, very nice. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with light grassy butterscotch, grassy resinous hops, OK. On tap at brewery.

GIJOE (647) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Dark amber brew with a thick off white head and generous lacing. Nose is faint floral hops. Taste is hop bitterness but with a lot of sweetness coming through.Thin bodied brew, soft carbonation, slightly dry finish.

Fatehunter (1274) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Pours a finger and half of head on a cloudy dark straw colored body. The aroma is musty pine, lemon zest and some candy corn in the background. Unique but really good. The taste is woody pine bitterness with a light malt sweetness to balance it out nicely. The texture is crisp with soft edges and moderate carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

On tap at Craftworks Taphouse, Itaewon. Cloudy ruddy brown with a smallish head. Grassy and spicy hoppiness, good bitterness. Not bad.

WVHouseofBeer (840) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Nice hoppy, piney and citrusy aromas. Pours a burnt amber color with a good sized white head that leaves some lacing. Flavors are bitter citrusy hops but balanced nicely with a pretty noticeable malty sweetness. It was a bit too thin IMO. Overall a good IPA, it’s so great to see a real beer like this being made in Korea..............

KansaiBeerLvrs (2176) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2013
On tap at Craftworks. A bit pricier than their other beers my homebrewing friend Bill helped them with their recipe! It has a nice lemon aroma with a caramel malt flavor profile with a sort of lemon grass or citrus hoppiness to it. Easy to drink for 6.8% ABV. A solid IPA. Another worthwhile beer to try from Craftworks.

Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2012
Draught@ Craftworks Taphouse & Bistro. Clear amber coloured beer with no carbonation and a small off white head. Refresing herby bitter and hoppy hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is bitter hoppy with a long bitter ending. Decent IPA.

SHIG (3603) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Draft: Poured a amber orange color with a thin off white head. Aroma is nice hops. Taste is full on with piney hops, nice balanced malt in the finish.
