355ml can bought at YATA in YoHo Mall, Yuen Long.
Looks: Clear light amber colour; One-quarter finger head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing with notable slight carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant and fruity Ale malt, with passion fruits, strong mangoes, peaches, tropical fruits, floral, sugar, pine, resins, light spices, bread, strong lemon and grass.
Taste: Close to light sweet Ale malt, with strong grains, fair grapefruits, caramel notes, floral, hint of molasses, spices, pine, resins, dry biscuits, lemon, mid to strong bitter hops and strong grass.
Body: Medium body; Quite slick and fairly oozy palate.
Mouth Feel: Fairly solid Ale maltyness in a thinned background. Grainy with notable grapefruity hops and caramel presence. Flowery with very light sweetness. Spicy with pretty strong pine and resins. Dry biscuity with lemon to round. Decent!
Hoppiness: Passion fruits, mangoes, peaches, tropical fruits, floral, pine, resins, light spices, strong lemon and grass in nose. Grapefruits, floral, spices, pine, resins, lemon and strong grass in taste; Bitterness is fairly strong for a lasting, medium astringent citrusy malty finish.
After taste: Dry. Piney lemony and quite bitter to mouth.
Comments: For a Session IPA, this is competent enough: Pretty good fruity aroma with piney citrusy taste quite well presented. If the aroma has a bit more exotic age, this would be exciting. Drinkable.
Tap @ Ihku. Pours hazy orange, white head. Pine hops in the aroma. Hoppy, fresh, light flavour. Tide (4752) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2017 Draught at Sori Taproom. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, hops, wet sweaty socks, a bit of toast and spoiled fruits. Bitter finish with citrus, hops, sweaty socks, toast and a bit of pine. Awful stuff that is only saved a bit by the hops. frankcolub (98) - Ashbury, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2017 taste of an IPA in a sessionable alcohol content. This ale is perfect for leisurely days on the water, when all you want are a few beers and a level ride.

(Keg at Pikkulintu, 20171007) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, fruitiness and white bread. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A balanced and easily drinkable hoppy brew with low ABV. jamman (1) - - SEP 29, 2017 does not count
For a session beer, in the top. Has all of the attributes of a good IPA, just at a milder level.
