8oz pour at Galaxy Hut pours a clear gold with some thin white head. Nose is vinous, white grape, straw, grass, orange, lemon, a hint of pepper. Flavor is solid, lemon, orange, pine, straw, some scape, zesty grapefruit, a bit of soap. Nice, refreshing, slightly astringent finish.

hawthorne00 (2407) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold with a modest white head. Aroma of grass, white grapes, gooseberries, grapefruit. Lowish carbonation. Tastes as it smells, fairly dry with pithy bitterness at the end. Quality pale malt is there somewhere under the hops. Refreshing, a mite austere.

On draught at Humpy’s Big Island Alehouse. Yellowish golden color. Aroma is tart passionfruit, pineapple, and cedar resin. Taste is tart grapefruit, passionfruit, resin, and a hint of sweet citrus. Bitter finish, but also has a tropical fruit sweetness.

Very pleasant surprise! Very dry with a ton of citrus hoppiness. Nice head retention and good mouth feel. I really like this beer and look forward to drinking in very often.

CacheManyHose (175) - HONG KONG - JUN 28, 2014
A very Belgian pale ale. Looks unexpectedly light, straw yellow with bubbly thick white head and legs, very cloudy and slightly dull. Smells of wheat beer esters (light clove/spice, banana) and Nelson Sauvin hops (white wine, grapes). Tastes of hop, grapefruit peel. Frothy body with dry finish.

HKdIPA (227) - HONG KONG - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Very hazy straw yellow pour with dense foamy white head. Smells Belgian-y with bright Nelson Sauvin hops - lemony and wine-like. Taste is exactly as the aroma - surprisingly fresh tasting. Clean finish with a bit of spicy Belgian flavor. Pleasantly surprising - easy-drinking but lots of flavor, even if Belgian yeastiness isn't my favorite flavor generally. Could get this again.

DrSilverworm (6300) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2014
On tap at Dutch’s. Keg filled November 13 (thanks, Natural State...). Mostly hazy bright golden color. Thin off-white head, leaves good thicker lace. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Good clean bready crockery malt, lightly peppery. Light citrus, kind of zesty, mild hop aromas, hint of pine. Moderate bitter taste, mild sweet. Not bad, despite being an older keg.

beer-yum (456) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 21, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 The aroma promised a lot - but the body was not there at all. Very, very dry - not something I am looking for in a regular American Pale Ale.
