Solid pour, red glow, smells amazing, taste is robust, very rich, very hoppy, aggressive hops mix well with the red, tastes like a great combo or a red ale and IPA, as it should, but the hops are pretty amazing. Well done. Very drinkable.

Nearly opaque crimson colour, mid sized head. Very nice malty aroma with notes of hops, citrus, caramel, and spice. Creamy and quite full bodied for an ipa. Absolutely delectable. Creamy malt, caramel, and dried fruit dominate the initial taste, but the finish is wonderfully hoppy just as I had hoped.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Looks: Translucent deep amber red colour with no yeast sediments; One-quarter finger head and light beige foam which fades in 20 seconds; Very good sticky lacing with very slight carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant and quite sweet Ale malt, with strong lemon, grapefruit, passion fruits, light jackfruits, floral, honey, light cat piss, light pine, yeast and very light grass.
Taste: Mid to light sweet Ale and dark malt, with strong roastyness, very strong lemon, strong lime, grapefruit, passion fruits, molasses, pine, light earth, yeast, very strong bitter hops and moderate grass.
Body: Mid to light body, slick palate.
Mouth Feel: Good, solid and slick roasty malty backbone despite the presence of wheat. Very hard-hitting citrus, especially lemon and lime, followed by testable passion fruits and nice molasses. Moderate pine and earth and ended with strong hops. Nice!
Hoppiness: strong lemon, passion fruits, light jack fruits, floral, honey and light pine in nose. Very strong lemon, lime, tropical fruits, pine and light earth in taste. Bitterness is quietly powerful, not quite as slamming as German Pils but approaching to that level in a nice comfy way. Lasting strong astringent finish.
After Taste: Quite dry, very citrusy and bitter to mouth.
Comment: This is lightened in body, but the malts are roasty, yummy and rich. The Cs took the stage by storm with very tasty bitter Magnum finish. A perfect Summer beer!
