bottle, dark fruit aroma, a bit of citrus as well, golden to amber colour, hazy, white foam, very bitter, medium sweetness, good taste but for IPA something strange, if off this category so thats all right. very fruity character, full body, thick feel, average carbonation, bitter, good but not brilliant

Bottle. Orange-brown with a white big head. Aroma has crisp grapefruit and pine. Taste has grapefruit, fermented fruit, bitter pine, citrus and grass. Bit overtly bitter on the middle with an odd sidetaste which continues on to the aftertaste.

Ginger, lime, lemon - an IPA-ish (?!) artesian ale that takes you to the country & dumps you in a field of cows. This must be what farmers drink - those with taste! Rated by BrewTom

Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Mooi oranje van kleur. Troebel, gist is zichtbaar. Sinaasappel geur met een vleugje citroen. Lekker gekruid van smaak. Begint iets zoetig. Co2 voelbaar in de mond. Daarna wat zurig met een klein bittertje.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2013
Poured hazy orange, with a lively foamy head. Aroma of lime, grapefruit, yeast, apple, hints of vanilla, cinnamon, honey. Tarty bitter taste in a medium body, with tons of carbonation. Velvet smooth on the palate. Delicious fruity aftertaste that lasts. Nice one.

rikstar (729) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2013
Uit 0,33l fles op AA-clubavond. Koperoranjekleur met een fijne crème schuimkraag. In de geur mango bande hop en wat houtonen. De hoofdsmaak is een redelijk in balans met associaties van citrus, cactus ananas en dennenbos. Trekkend mondgevoel.

GoufCustom (802) - HONG KONG - NOV 21, 2013


330 ml bottle bought at The Bottle Shop in Sai Kung.

Cloudy hazy straw brown colour with lots of dirt like yeast sediments; Two finger head with rich, long lasting crumpety off white foam, like those of Belgian ales; Very sticky lacing with soft, fizzy carbonation; Very fragrant and sweet aroma of fresh pineapple and tartness which can be smelt a feet away, with jackfruit, grapefruit, orange, honey, wood furniture, strong pine, strong resin, sweet malt, spice, light lemon and grass; Mid to light sweet taste of rich ale malt, with strong resin, hard sourness, zesty light grapefruit, earth, light orange, lemon, strong yeast, spices, light liquorices, lime and herbal hops; Full body, rich, creamy and oozy palate; Mouth feel is rich ale malt, being dominated by pretty stong tartness, slightly funky palate and very resiny body, fruity taste is light grapefruit zest. The rest are spicy, earthy, and resiny; Pretty strong tartness, which is not offenisive but it does get in the way of aroma and taste; Hoppiness is potent pineapple, tropical fruit and piney nose, zesty grapefruit and spicy, earthy, oozy taste, and low key bitterness for slow sipping finish; Dry after taste, fairly spicy and tart to mouth.

Comments: This one has some really fragrant pineapple which I yearned for so long and a pretty rich body and 3C-induced hoppiness worked out solidly. Yet, the tartness and woodiness were overdone, which somehow curbing this one from being excellent. Because of these, this brew is decent, but not great.
