COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Little General IPA is an American-style session IPA, hoppy, but not irresponsibly so. It is a balanced, medium-bodied IPA made with indigenous Chinese hops and a combination of 85% local malts, 15% imported German malts. Named after the only Patriotic hero to be recognized by both Mainland China and Taiwan, the Little General is an act of balanced beauty.

Juicy, fruity aroma. Manga, pineapple. Dark golden color, almost clear. Awesome lacing. In taste it’s not that juicy, not that fruity. It’s a bit flat, harsh, aggressive. No fruity notes. Just pure not that nice bitterness. Good aftertaste. It’s ok, worth to try.

nice bitter sweet citrusy aroma. Cool palate. Cool golden color. White lace like a blanket. Danky hopiness. Balanced malt and hops beer palate. Very satisfying.

Bacterial (2674) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2015
On draft at the original brewery. Easy drinking, big hop character with more of a focus on herbal and earthy hops instead of massive citrus hops.

Growler from great leap brewpub
Decent resinous hit on the nose from this dark amber beer. low carbonation, sticky malt, bitter but not massively so. some pithy citrus but like its lower ABV siblings favouring IBUs over hop flavour.

Tinco (609) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2013
Visited Great Leap and tried 10 of their beers in samplers. All in all I was impressed and happy with the beers. Too bad I forgot pen and paper so take more serious tasting notes so my rating score is based on memory.

This was served warm, which was unusual for me, but the flavours and aroma of citurs and sweet malts was great. Great beer!

Asia’s best IPA? On tap at Great Leap in Beijing. Amber colour, creamy texture, bitter with some caramel notes. Nice.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2011
Dark orange colored, hazy appearance. Little yellow head. Grassy bitter, fruity aroma with some herbal touch, thin yeasty note here as well. Medium bodied. Flavor is grassy as well with some orange-peachy fruitiness, yeast and dry grass still in aftertaste.
