By the looks of it, Iím the THIRD person to rate this from a can! Very citrusy. You can really taste the characteristics of the Nelson hops. Quite delicious, actually. Not too astringent, not too malty. I really dig the grapefruit flavors. Did I mention it is IN A CAN! I mean, come on... what are the odds? Good stuff, would buy from again, A++++++.

Can - Pours copper with a filmy off white head. Nose is dank and oniony with mango and sweet bready malt. Taste is super hoppy, with dank onion and tropical fruit. Dry bready malt with a bitter astringent hoppiness. Slick and medium-bodied with mellow carbonation.

From tap at Mikkeller Bangkok. Recommended by bar staff. Citrus and passion fruit on the nose. Very hoppy. Almost like a DIPA. Well balanced. A great beer altogether.

I poured this into a pokal from a pint can and considered how terribly light-bodied it seemed. Obviously a bit of a paradox! The liquid is ruby-amber and crystal clear, capped with a white sea-foam; rocky and soft, all at once. The lacing is light on the glass, delicate and sticky.
Grapefruit and passion fruit take the point, but the aroma is outrageously dank with hops; it comes across more of a DIPA than an Amber, but with a caramel malt rich enough to temper the idea. Still, if I was nose first into a hops cone, I couldnít get too much more resin than Iím finding here. (sigh-love)
The body median, this brew still flows nicely, balanced and flavorful. The carbonation "fair to middlin" is popping lightly over my tongue and cheeks, adding to the dryness that keeps me tipping the glass. The finish is short, slightly bitter and very, very comfortable.
A friend told me that this beer would "surprise me...in a great way." It has!

Hand dlivered by Maxbier all the way from L.A. Thanks Maxbier, this is a great brew! Pours clear copper with off white head. Aroma is citrus, pineapple, and papaya. Flavor starts big tangerine and clementine, followed with sweet pineapple, ripe sweet mango, and Papya. Finishes with a resiny pine. Slight bitterness in finish but does not linger. Really nice, sweet, fruity brew. Really liking these hopped up ambers.

Tap at Mikkeller Bangkok. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, skunky malt, citrus hop. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a yeast, super strong hop bitter, light toothpaste palate and a forever lingering bitter finish. There are clearly lots of hops in here and it surprised me that the aroma was as light as it was.

One of my all time favorite IPAs. Citrusy, sweet, fruity aroma. Taste is very similar with the perfect amount of hoppy bitterness. Highly recommend

On tap at Stone Escondido. Pours an Amber gold with a thin off white head. Aroma seems off cardboard. Overall fine. But didn't rally like this one.

Draught US pint at Smith Street Taps in Singapore. Sweet aroma of citrus, pine and hops. Dark amber colour, clear and with a small head. Medium carbonation. Heavily hopped, citrus and malt taste, with grapefruit dominant. A nice unique amber ale.

Amber color with a white head. Aroma is sweet and citrus with a slight fruitiness. A dominant sweet taste but with a nice hoppy balance. Definitely a great one.
