UPDATED: OCT 23, 2019 Oct 2019, bottle at Propoganda in Saigon. A pleantly sweet pale ale with American hops. Nice enough. Expensive for a Vietnamese beer (£5 instead of the typical 50p to £1.50, and not worth the extra money, but an ok beer.

jgb9348 (8166) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2019 Crisp copper and bronze coloured body without any glow or haze, all with a nice, relatively large four to five centimetre tall off-white head at first that does fade quite quickly to just a thinnish layer on top after several moments. Aroma of tropical fruits, guava, light oranges, a dose of pine and resin and a touch of alcohol on the very end. Medium-bodied; Strong piney and floral bite at first with a lot of hop bitterness up front, although more on the perfumey and grassy front and less on the pure hop cone bitternesss, and no fruity or resinous flavours are evident either. Aftertaste shows the grassy and piney flavours with some light malt notes as a good balance and some relatively strong astringent alcohol notes as well, all with a touch of sweetness. Overall, a nice and enjoyable beer that shows a solid IPA with a good deal of bitterness, but better balance throughout. Great to sample fresh and better even to pick this up at the brewery. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased a few hours ago at the Brewery here in Saigon, Vietnam on 10-August-2019 for 95,000VND sampled a few hours later here in my hotel room here in Saigon before leaving for much cooler climate in Sydney, Australia.

Borresteijn (9174) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2019 33cl Bottle at KJUBZT. Golden colour, white head. Aroma of caramel, yeast, grapefruit and pine. Flavour follows, a bit watery and yeasty, but a decent classic IPA nonetheless.
