I just love it. The smell of citrus fruits and flowers. Rich ambler color and its subtle caramel aroma is also very attractive. Malty and hoppy.

Citrus, floral, malty scent. Standard golden color. Nice blending of malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness.

drjoeng (946) - SINGAPORE - MAR 5, 2016
8.8%ABV. Imperial IPA. Tapped out a rich amber. 16SRM. Nose has nice rich pine freshness. There is also the aroma of ripe pineapple and sweet citrus, like ripe tangerines or Yuzu. There is also a residual sweet maltiness to the nose. Very inviting. Mouthfeel is soapy. The palate is graham cracker, caramel, burnt sugar and toasty malt sweet. A good base upon which to taste the hops which are pine, grass, light resin and sap. Finish is medium and satisfying. Goes on Favorites List!

rain00i (15) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - MAR 2, 2016
Subtle caramel aroma is very attractive. Clear golden color grabs your eyes and a very smooth malty taste is very well balanced with slightly bitter taste. Better than Ive expected!

chupachups01 (38) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - MAR 2, 2016
Poured into Teku from bottle. This is a strong beer. A heavy one for hop lovers, not my particular style. Aroma is sweet with bitter hops. Thin white head. Solid for this style.

TheBeerMason (6) - - FEB 20, 2016 does not count
Served in 500ml bottle at THE BEER MASONS on Koh Tao, aroma of caramel and pine, nice dry and bitter, just the way i like it. If you fancy IIPA this is the one.

Earplay (51) - NEW ZEALAND - FEB 14, 2016
500ml bottle exp 12/16. Golden straw colour, aroma is primarily sweet floral/tropical hops, some spice/pine in the finish. Taste follows nose, punchy, juicy saturated hop flavour. Impressively clean/pale malt profile for the abv, definitely lets the hops shine. Full bodied but very drinkable. One of the better options in this category, worth finding fresh.

slowrunner77 (10461) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle - doesnt seem terribly fresh bit still quite nice, just maltier than I usually like. Tropical fruit aroma and flavor is light, with caramel and bready malt, light yeast and ample bitterness.
