GoufCustom (1214) - HONG KONG - NOV 20, 2015

355 ml bottle bought at The Q-Shop in SoHo, Central.

Looks: Translucent orange honey colour; Less than one-quarter finger head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing with neat zero carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant Ale malt, with strong peaches, passion fruits, grapefruits, orange, pineapple soda, honey, floral, sugar, light pine, light resins, yeast, lemon and quite strong grass.

Taste: Medium sweet moderate Ale malt, with strong grapefruit, caramel, strong toffee, light floral, strong molasses, pine, strong resins, spices, yeast, strong lemon and very strong bitter grassy hops.

Body: Mid to light; Slick and very oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Fair Ale maltyness in a rather thin body. Very good caramel and sticky toffee thanks to c-15. Strong citrusy hops takes over with strong resins but not in-youy-face (good!), pine, sweetness, spices and strong lemon. 8.2% booze in almost undetectable. Straight forward and nice!

Hoppiness: strong peaches, passion fruits, grapefruits, orange, pineapple, floral, light pine, light resins, lemon and strong grass in nose. Strong grapefruit, pine, strong resins, spices, strong lemon and grass I taste. Bitterness is potent but tasty at 73 IBU for a lasting, strong astringent toffee finish.

After taste: Fairly dry. Fruity and yummy bitter to mouth.

Comments: Its nice peachy and tropical fruit aroma gives a really really good impression, so do the surprisingly strong caramel and toffee in taste. Citrusy and oozy hops are rather simple but effective. Nicely bittered. Not cream of the crop but a nice pleaser!

Big pine nose almost B.O. floral notes. Flavor is punch in the gut with citra hops. Great go to IPA when you need that hop hit.

Pours a clear golden amber color with a fluffy off white head that laces nicely. Solid hoppy aroma (light pine resin, grapefruit, mild tropical notes and some malty sweetness). Descent IPA flavor with citrus peel, melon, evergreen and some very light toffee. Long bitter aftertaste

GriffDaddy (105) - - OCT 30, 2015
Beautiful aroma of pine with a sweet grapefruit/melon note. Cloudy golden pour, thick white head. Full, rich, very bitter on the palate, astringent grapefruit and lots of sticky pine. Long finish. This is a big, bitter, resiny IPA and if you like that sort of thing (I do), this is a good beer.

mrjez (192) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 22, 2015
L: pours an orange-gold with a small head, a little lacing. S: quite subdued aroma, some light pine, a hint of grapefruit, pineapple. T: it has a nice full flavour, the hops work together well, and everything is kept in check. There’s pine, some tropical or stone fruit. There’s no taste of that high ABV but you can sense it in the body. F: it has a pretty big start, with a bitter hop wash that stretches out with a pretty dry finish. O: I remember digging this on tap a bit more, but the bottle version holds up well.

Majek (539) - Ząbki, POLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Little hazy, golden/light orange colour with big and stable head. Medium intensive aroma of exotic fruits with hint of herbal note. Taste is medium bitter, light to medium sweet with long fruity aftertaste. Soft to medium carbonation. Medium body. Very drinkable and refreshing stuff.

Quick3Beers (522) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Aroma of citrus, slight resin note in the background. Pale malt is in the mix, but the dry hopped Citra takes center stage in the flavor. Good amount of bitterness. Good beer.
