2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very hazy amber/golden colored beer. Small white film head. Aroma is earthy, tingy malt. Palate is cool. flavor is medium malt with a sharp bitter finish. Aroma too malty, not enough head. Not west coast style. More like a European made AIPA, but this is HK so that’s apt.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle served in an ordinary glass. Enjoyed in Hong Kong. Pours a slightly hazy orange color forming a medium light white head with medium to low retention and only few spotty lacing left in the glass. Nose is nice. Refreshing. Strong citrus notes. Pale and caramel malts. Notes of pine, resin and tropical fruits. Passion fruit and grapefruit. Taste follows the nose: Citrus, pine, resin, caramel malts, pale malts. Quite bitter. Earth notes. Dry finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Resin and grapefruit in the aftertaste. Good drinkability. Nice Hong Kong IPA. Deserve a better qualification.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured out of the bottle a clear deep amber. 18ºSRM.
Nose is malty and alcholic. There are roasty, sweet malty flavors. There is an aroma of roasting chestnuts. Quite nice. Some wet yeasty aromas linger. Coming back I get some nice sweet medicinal aromas of licorice.
Mouthfeel is soapy and alcoholic. After the gravitas of the fumes start to fade, you get some nice graham cracker, caramel and cracked barley. Some nice nutty flavors with sugar sweetness, reminiscent of French burnt peanuts or Jordan almonds.
Not much in the way of hop character.
Finish is brief and again, not very interesting.

Draft. Pours a hazy reddish color. Aroma and taste are sweet and malty, doesn’t taste like an IPA at all.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2015 Better than expected after trying the Sevens Stout that was garbage. Appearance isn’t the best: hazy rotten dirty golden with thin white head. Aroma is floral and fruity. It tastes fruity as well, and can feel some hops. Bad water used indeed. Not too bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in Hongkong. Floral nose. The beer starts fresh and smooth. Not too complex, but nice hints of fresh hops. Moderate bitter, fresh floral, hints of citrus. Quite dry for the high ABV. Fresh and smooth but not too deep.
