CacheManyHose (555) - HONG KONG - JUN 21, 2016
Drank w Matt after Ikea. Pretty orange-amber. Off-white head with a circular yeasty ring. Aroma is heavily of that plastic-smelling hop, moderate hop and lemon/lime. Taste is aggressive bitter quite grassy resin hop, lemon/lime finish with fizzy carbonation. Not bad, lots of flavour and very bitter - so bitter it is almost puckering in the taste - but not the biggest fan of the plastic hop. Lots of grassiness and some nice malt and citrus notes though.

HKdIPA (633) - HONG KONG - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Hazy dark amber pour with thin head. Aroma is sweet honey grain with some pine resin hops. Taste is big and bitter and very very plasticky (not sure what type of hops it is that gives me that sensation) with some pine resin. Quite bubbly. Not a bad IPA but the hop profile I don't like.

varanid99 (950) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2016
Amber pour with a 1cm creamy beige head. Pine, oranges, grapefruit, resin nice malt underneath. Taste is big piney, grapefruit and a bit of toffee and a fair whack of bitterness at the end. Haven’t had a bad beer from these guys yet, surprised this isn’t rated a bit higher.

drjoeng (701) - SINGAPORE - MAY 20, 2016
6.7%ABV.  IPA. Poured out Amber. 16ºSRM. Nose has pine, citrus peel fresh and bitter.  There is a nice strong hint of lavendar as well. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has toasted malt body with graham cracker, honey, wheat toast. Hops are bitter, resinous and in the end a bunch of spice with pepper leaf, green chili,  Medium long finish. Goes on Favorites List!

Davros (2663) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2014
Pours dark amber with a large head. Nose shows pine, grapefruit, nutty marris otter-like notes along with spicy and herbal hops. Aggressive flavours. Main focus is on pine and grapefruit again. Not much malt presence which only makes the aggressive bitterness that much more abrasive. Dramatically overcarbonated.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle thanks again to Mr Bird. Pours golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, wood, pine and a bit of Mary Jane. Flavours are nice mix of earthy spice, tropical fruits, grapefruit and some toffee. Nice carbonation and bitter finish. Good!

adamlikesbeer (10) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle from Beer Cartel. Aroma: Bubblegum, apple juice, mango and citrus. And of course heavy malt. Golden with nice head. Taste very heavy on malt, thought it was a bit boring and onesided. Maybe could’ve done well with more aroma hops. Good for an australian beer though.
