3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Beer Deluxe, Fed Square
Pale gold, holds a good creamy head.
Prominent hop nose; citrus rind, passionfruit, guava, grass, a touch of pale pilsener malt toastiness.
Med-full body, resiny, not sure of its strength but it feels pretty big!
Delivers a good measure of hops on the body; passionfruit, citrus rind, grass, melon, bitterness seems a bit subdued at first but builds.
Imperial pilsener? Full on but enjoy the hop character.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From Bottle Shop, drank after HKUST visit. Beautiful bright hazy golden pour with big fluffy white head and foamy legs. Smells of Nelson Sauvin hop - plenty of grape as well as mango and peach, woody. Biscuity lightly spiced malt too. Taste is wood chip floral hop, dry grape and mineral. Body is smooth, very fine carbonation (from the champagne yeast). Very interesting, fine and refreshing. Slick, fruity (grape + citrus), woody, fizzy.

Bottle from Bottle Shop at home. Bright golden slightly hazy translucent pour with foamy white head. Vertical strips of bubbles like champagne. Looks great. Aroma is fresh crisp pilsner hoppiness. Taste is really clean - fresh hoppiness, smooth slightly sweet malts, crisp champagne carbonation. Lingering pilsner bitterness. The best version of what I'd imagined/hoped after reading the deScription. Would definitely get again.
