Smooth, creamy golden IPA. Very hoppy. The aroma is grassy and piney. Hops dominate the flavour but there is noticeable malt in the background. With a good head and lacing this is a very good IPA but slightly over bitter for my tastes.

500ml bottle at home. Clear orange / golden with a full white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel starts smooth, a tad watery, and is followed by more and more hoppy bitterness, ending with a very dry hoppy finish. A lot of hops and citrus with some honey notes. A quality IPA.

Beautiful bouquet of floral and citrus hops. Enough malt backbone to counter the hops, but in no way take from how delicious the hop character is. The color of pulpy orange juice and bubbly water. Yum

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle bought at Aeon in Skyline Plaza, Tsuen Wan.
Cloudy hazy golden honey colour with traces of yeast sediments; Two finger head and crumpet white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with notable slight carbonation; Very fragrant and sweet aroma of fresh grapefruit which can be smelt a feet away, with ale malt, orange, honey, faint jackfruit and light lime; Medium sweet taste of full ale malt, with grapefruit, dry biscuits, yeast, liquorices, lime and herbal hops; Mid to light body, crisp and slightly slick palate; Taste profile is dry, crisp and biscuity full ale malt. Mouth feel is rich, augmentedby good wheat crispness and moderately strong liquorices. Grapefruit taste is sharp but not as fresh as the aroma. It’s getting there… Hoppiness is very fragrant grapefruit and light orange in nose, strong herbal hops and not so fleshy grapefruit taste. Liquorices is moderate, good balance to sweetness for a chop licking astringent finish;Very dry after taste, crispy and pretty refreshing to mouth.
Comments: A typical and traditional IPA - fragrant grapefruit nose, very malty, good balance of sweetness with bitterness - plus good dose of wheaty crispness and yeasty dryness. It may not be adventurous as contemporary micro IPAs, still a well make and all round solid pleaser for any seasons. Good stuff!
