3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle bought at Craftissimo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.
Translucent honey orange colour; One and a half finger head and crumpet off-white foam which lasts about 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with active carbonation; Fragrant sweet aroma of moderate ale malt, with orange flesh and peel, floral, honey, faint grapefruit, light vanilla and faint grass; Nice medium sweet taste of ale malt, with strong orange peel, light molasses, yeast, dough, light earth, light liquorices, strong lime, and strong herbal grassy hops; Mid to light body, oily palate; Mouth feel is lightened IPA with the usual grapefruit and pine elements being replaced by orange, peels and fruitiness. Still pretty malty and doughty. Sweetness is surprisingly low and pleasant; Hoppiness still shines with orange, floral and light grass in nose, strong lime, light earth and very sharp grass in taste. Astringency is lastingly good for finish; Fairly dry after taste, very fruity and hoppy to mouth.
Comments: This one has very good aroma, looks, heads and palate. Its taste somehow doesn’t back it up: the orange taste is well expressed without being cloying, but at the expense of 3C-ish hops which makes micro IPA so tasty. With a little more 3Cs and fruity sweetness, it’ll take off and blow you away. One step from being top!

Taste of orange and american hops. No yeast character. Weird mustiness at the end. Not the best. Brilliant colour though.

On tap @ Haven Gastropub. Amber in color with an off-white head. Nose is really sweet and malty. Lots of caramel, light orange oil, and some old hops. Meh. Flavor is no better. Just sweet and muddled. A bit of orange along with caramel malt and stale hops. Minimal bitterness.
