Nische (1154) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2015
Pours murky orangish brown with a small frothy off white head that quickly disappears. Aroma and taste of wet grass, malt, some pines and tropical fruit. Pretty sticky.

Taster from the owner of The Bottle Shop in Taiwan. Had a few drinks there and I told him I am dubious about IPAs from overseas because of the time it takes to get from the source. I gotta say, I was surprised. Pours a super cloudy orange color with a white head. Aromas are a bit subdued but still all the tropical fruit and citrus. Bitterness is minimal. Better than I was expecting but not phenomenal.

androman (878) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2015
33cl bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Body is hazy yellow orange, head is small, off-white, creamy, average lasting, good lacing. Nose is citric, flavor is tropical fruits, grapefruit, caramel, honey. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Finish is long lasting hoppy bittersweet, later more hoppy, heavy bitter. Full body, soapy texture, soft carbonation. Not that easy, very tasty.

Vaiz (3796) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle at home. Murky orange pour, thin white head. Aroma is very fruity, fresh, full of citra and with a hint of unfermented sugars. Flavor is sweet, fruity citrussy hops and with a thick body. Well balanced, smooth and very well drinkable. Lovely IPA.

12oz bottle Wine world Panama City Beach. Hazy ochre yellow pour with good 30mm froth. Rich aroma of pure citra hops predominant. Sweet malty hop balance, with litter to none bitterness bite. A mouthful of beer joy. Mikkeller’s IPAs are some of the best overseas beers available. Please don’t get me wrong, as I’m a Belgium drinker all the way (I’m from Namur/Namen). My older brother/brewer is the first guy I know to board the hop-bomb bandwagon, it has taken me many years to come around and enjoy beers of his liking and this would be one of those. Excellent choice of the 3 available from Chan’s Panama. Cheers

ulises77 (14) - México D.F., MEXICO - MAR 20, 2015
Pours a hazy dark orange color with a thin white head. Smell like citrus fruit punch, notes of grapefruit, tangerine and orange peel with a little hint floral. Taste like tropical citrus fruit and sweet caramel malt that actually balance very well the punch of the hops. At the end have a nice short bitter whit a hint of sneaked alcohol. This is a really nice IIPA. Awesome beer.

DocJitsu (1200) - Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Pours a very hazy yellow-golden color with a 1-inch antique white head. Head retention is better than average. Pungent resinous, skunky, citrusy hop nose with slight notes of cannabis. Coating on the tongue and mildly astringent. Flavor’s approxinate the aromas. Good malt backbone without getting overly expressed.
