330ml can from Liquorland. Lovely deep amber colour in the glass, with a soft cream coloured head that retains well. Lots of citrus and floral hops on the nose, some lychee and pineapple in there. Slightly metallic. Taste is perfect, not too bitter. After-burn from the chilli is noticeable but subtle, and doesn’t seem out of place. Love it.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2016 0,33L can bought at the Bottle Shop Hong Kong. Appearance: Pours a hazy amber - copper colour with medium frothy white head that leaves some beautiful lacing. Aroma: Massive fruity aroma of mango, passionfruit, citrus from Amarillo, Citra and Centennial hops. Some resin, spice, lime and light toffee-like malt notes. Taste: A very complex and balanced flavour. Medium citrus bitterness, with resin and some pine. Later joins the light toffee-like malt sweetness which slowly turns into some subtle chilliness and spiciness at the end. The chilliness and spiciness is not overwhelmed, but can taste its existence as the glass becomes warmer. Palate: Medium body, with hoppy, bitter and citrus, mango and lime fruit finish. The texture is very smooth. Mild mint leaves and some sweet and very subtle chili aftertaste when swallow. Overall: Absolutely spot on. I am amazed by the perfect balance of this IPA. Although some really unique and exotic ingredients such as mango, Vietnamese mint and lime and chili are added, they do not clash with the usual beer ingredients of hops and malts. Such a stunning beer brewed by Garage Project, definitely goes on my favourite list. Also give credits to the design and drawing of the can, really eye-catching and worth collecting.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2016 Colore dorato, un po? velata con bel perlage, schiuma bianca frizzantina e sottile. Splendido aroma floreale ed erbaceo, con intenso sentore di agrumi. Molto piacevole al palato, con una luppolatura leggera, una carbonazione perfetta e una buona base di malto. Una birra fresca, con belle note di frutta tropicale, ben equilibrata a cui aggiungerei un pelo di amaro in più.

650 ml bottle from Hawthorne Cellars. Pours a fantastic deep orange colour with medium tan head. Complex aroma of hops, citrus, and sweet fruit. Taste is hop forward balanced by citrus fruits and subtle sweetness. The balance between hops and sweetness is outstanding.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. 7.5%. Best before 14.01.17. Pours a clear, deep copper/golden with a light tan/beige head. Good lacing. Hoppy aroma; citrus, pine. Hints of mint, chili. Fresh, almost sea-like overtone. Spicy note as it warms. Fruity and citrusy hop flavour, a bit fat and with a spicy note. Bitter finish, liquorice. Hint of mint. Lingering mild chili burn. Soft palate. Overall good, well-balanced; neither the mint nor the chili is too much; both have a pleasant level. 24.06.16.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2016 330ml can (now had on tap too). To the nose there’s floral hops, but the taste is something else. There’s big juicy mango flavours and big hoppy bitterness, but the finish is perfectly cooled by the tart lime and fragrant mint. A really special beer.

Hop juice for hop lovers <3.
Unclear orange golden color with a thick fine off white head. Solid aroma. Medium to full body and a smooth carbonation. A bit sweet, but a fine bitterness balanced it well up. Grapefruit hoppy, toffee, tropical, some resin and pine in the flavor. Solid work.

Burk från SB. Guldig klar vätska med gräddigt krämbeiget skum. Stor knäckig doft med övergräddad kola och kåda. I bakgrunden lite mango. Mellanstor kropp. En mix smakmässigt. Först på en lite fruktig hetta från grön chili och feferoni. Ligger kvar rakt igenom utan att ta över. Knäckig kola som i doften. Mint och mynta i bakgrunden någonstans. Lite fruktigt. Svårbalanserad... mja, vet inte riktigt!
