2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Tom L. Slightly hazy deep golden-orange. Aroma of stale fruity hops. Flavor has light malt sweetness, a bit of honey and somewhat stale fruity hops. Medium-bodied. Might be good when fresher, hope to try again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is quite hoppy. Citrus, caramel malts, grapefruit, wood, a bit floral. Thiner than expected but a decent medium body. Flavor is floral, citrus, orange, light candied malt. A decent IPA but I donít see the big draw with this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass a light yellow with a nice white head.
Aroma is hoppy citrus sweetness.
Flavor is juicy sweet with some mild bitterness. Less hoppy than the average IPA yet quite doable.
Very smooth & palatable. Would like a second bottle. Please.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 330ml bottle on 10/8/2014. Pours a murky golden with a mall head. Has a pleasant aroma featuring lots of caramel malt and fruity hops. Taste wise, itís quite malt forward, with lots a caramel and a touch of toffee. Thereís a fair bit of sweet tropical and stone fruit in there, leading to a firm, satisfying hop bitterness at the back. Has a fullish body and lively carbonation. Not typically US in style, but still very flavoursome, All up, another goodín from Yeastie Boys.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Sips. Translucent dark orange-copper with creamy looking off-white head. Smells of overripe pineapple, bubblegum/slightly artificial sweetness, hop. Tastes of crisp malt, hop, some soap and the same bubblegum, a little spice in the finish. Body is a little light, almost frothy. Sweetness is not cloying but quite odd; other flavours not big enough to be that interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sips at home. Hazy dark orange amber pour with dense head and lasting lacing. Aroma is surprisingly candy sweet. Like hops and donuts - like a pineapple that's been sitting out. Interesting. Taste is pleasantly fruity hops but with some underlying tanginess that's not that good - again an overripe fruit flavor. Probably the best Yeastie Boys I've had but have been a bit let down overall by the 3 offerings available in HK at the moment.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear honey-amber with a small white head and vigorous carbonation. Aromas of toffee, baking bread, peaches, white wine and flowers. Taste starts out with some sweet caramel and peach before a zesty grapefruit bitterness in the mid-palate. Falls away a bit after that but thereís a touch of fresh white grapes at the back end. Clean finish with a lightly spicy aftertaste. Not bad but a little out of whack.

This beer is a light amber colour with a very small short lived head. It smells of citrus and caramel. The taste is a little off. Just saw it is 3 months pad the best before date. Maybe that's it. Not great.

OK this is one of those ratings... bought this in Hong Kong but there was as much barnyard (and I mucked for a year in my late teens so I know more than Iíd rather admit) as hops in the nose, lots of rustic barnyard there, this is as much Saison Dupont as IPA (looking over the recent and top ratings I donít think thatís the intention or regular taste). I am therefore drinking a different beer than intended, with pineapple and earth and barnyard in the flavour, but I love it. 4.0.
Beer of life, dude.
