330 ml bottle bought at The Bottle Shop in Sai Kung.
Cloudy hazy golden orange colour with traces of scrappy yeast sediments; Explosive three finger head with rich, long lasting crumpety off white foam, almost like a Belgian ale and very similar to Lentehop; Very sticky lacing with soft fizzy carbonation; Very fragrant aroma of grapefruit, jackfruit, raisin, dark fruits, honey, floral, orange, sweet malt and light grass; Light sweet taste of moderate grapefruit, light jackfruit, raisin, light ale malt, lemon, molasses, yeast, light spices, light lime and fairly light hops; Medium body, slick palate; Mouth feel is quite refreshing light grapefruit and strong elements of raisins, jackfruits and some prune and dark fruits. Lighty ale-malty and lemony lime background, light spices, nothing too rich nor heavy. Quite refreshing to tongue and sparkling to my mind! Hoppiness is good fresh grapefruit and jackfruit nose. Decent light grapefruit and citrus, and really light hops with not much bitterness nor astringency for a somewhat empty finish. Slightly dry after taste, very easy to mouth.
Comments: Unlike the rich and spicy Lentehop, this one is all about good fresh aroma of Citra hops - grapefruit, tropical fruits and raisins, at the expense of taste and hoppiness. I believe this is what the brewers intended, as more hoppy and heavy stuffs are available elsewhere in its long lineups. If you are looking for some light and refreshing IPA, this is it. Quite recommended.
Bottle from SB. Nose i sweet, tangy citrus. Grapefruit, malts. Taste is medium sweetness, medium bitterness. A lot of aroma and a balanced taste, even though the ABV us is below 5%. Great with food or by itself.

Maybr this bottle was getting a bit old. Good but nothing spectacular. This didn’t have that fresh tropical aroma but some hops and bitterness. k92488 (493) - KVERNALAND, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2015

Guld/orange öl med stor puffig tunn krona helt i vitt. Fräsh doft av humle, citrus, grapefrukt, lite jäst men också malt. Smak följer doften med en lagom beska på slutet. God öl men hade önskat lite mer tyngd i den

On tap at The King’s Head. Served in a cervoise. Huge fluffy head atop a hazy orange body. Smells of orange hops, lightly floral, and a touch of pepper and caramel malt. Tastes equal parts orange and grassy hops. Toasted malts and a grassy bitter finish. Slick and creamy body. Soft carbonation. Distinctly European take on the style. rouhlas (4018) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUL 5, 2015
