Interesting aroma, the mango is definitely noticeable in the aroma, deep amber colour. Flavour is a mix of bread and stonefruit with a mild finish, not too resinous.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
330 ml can bought at ICBeer in Kwun Tong.
Looks: Clear amber orange colour; Three-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Very good sticky lacing with barely notable slight carbonation.
Aroma: Vary fragrant and sweet Ale malt, with strong passion fruits, fair mango, lime, strong red chili, light mint, floral, sugar, strong pine, resins and strong fresh grass.
Taste: Medium sweet rich Ale malt, with strong mint, strong lime, coconut cream, shades of chili, strong grapefruit, strong citrus, floral, strong molasses, pine, strong resins, spices, strong herbs, dry biscuits, yeast, strong bitter hops and fresh grass. Lovely!
Body: Mid to full body. Thick and creamy palate.
Mouth Feel: Very rich Ale maltyness in a solid and very smooth background, Very Bock-ish amber taste. This complements so well with the strong lime, mint and light chili it gives you instantly the creamy Thai green curry impression - rich coconut cream with fresh lime and mint - I knew it when I taste it because I love green curry and its taste is very distinct. Fair sweetness, strong grapefruits, pine, resins with fresh herbal grass to round. Wholesome and impressive!
Hoppiness: Strong passion fruits, lime, floral, strong pine, resins and strong fresh grass in nose. Strong lime, strong grapefruit, strong citrus, floral, pine, strong resins, spices, strong herbs and fresh grass in taste; Bitterness is strong and dynamic for a lasting, high astringent herbal limey finish.
After Taste: Quite dry. Minty limey and strong nice bitter to mouth.
Comments: This is certainly exotic, with strong malt, lime and pretty subdued red chili for a nice start, and if you are familiar with Thai green curry, that unmistakable fresh coconut cream and minty flavors are right here, so creamy and refreshing. This IPA is more than a stroke of genius, it’s simply a masterpiece and I will buy it again for sure. Garage Project, I salute you!

BB 17/03/17. Poured a clouded orange-amber with a one-finger off-white dense foamy head that retained well but laced poorly. Carbonation moderate and fine. Aroma lovely with lots of tropical fruity hops (pineapple, orange) and pine; alcohol well hidden. Taste of citrus (orange, lime) and a slight caramel malt sweetness plus a nice moderately strong grapefruit bitterness; nice moderate strength chilli heat and spiciness comes out as it warms; alcohol well hidden. Medium body. Crisp, clean and slightly dry with a lingering chilli spiciness. A nicely hopped IPA with a lingering chilli after-taste - unusual and nice.
