A special style of pale ale that has high hop bitterness, flavor, aroma and a higher alcohol content. Originally brewed in England for the long trip to India when additional hops were added for preservation. Boxing Cat TKO IPA has a medium body with some maltiness. Three different hop varieties contribute estery citrus and tangerine notes to this fine light orange-copper color beer. Dry-hopped aggressively with Simcoe and Amarillo hops.

Tap at the brewery. Pours a golden color without much head or lacing. Smooth initial taste with some strong hops. Not much maltiness. The bitterness comes on strong and is the kind that stays in your mouth for the rest of the night- a negative for me. OK but not great overall.

Tap @ BeerFes Yokohama, September 17th. Pours amber-ish golden, clear. Not much foam. Nice fresh fruity nose, light and has some barley backbone. Measured bitterness, fruity. Resiny linger in the finish. Dry. Well made but not particularly characterful.

W zapachu cytrusy. Smak lekko słodowy, wyraźne cytrusy. Piana tworzy lacing na szklance. Mocna goryczka, nie męcząca. Pite z kranu w Boxing Cat Brewery w Shanghaju.

ACHops (1665) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2017
On tap @ Roundhouse Wan Chai. Pours light pale golden with thick white head. Aroma is bright citrusy hops, faint sweetness on the back. Taste is clean juicy hops, light body, some residual sugars show but it’s minimal, dry slight dank finish. Very nice for an Asian IPA.

Hazy gold with a slight copper tinge. Medium-sized head. Aroma is hugely tropical and the taste is more of the same with a moderately hoppy bite at the end.

Tasting glass at boxing cat shanghai. Pours hazy amber with little big head. Fruity aroma with sweet citrus and hoppy tropical taste. Nice!

GoufCustom (2205) - HONG KONG - MAR 19, 2017

200ml sample glass on tap at The Roundhouse in SoHo, Central.

Looks: Clear light amber gold colour; Less than one-quarter head with residual soapy white foam; Fair sticky lacing with active carbonation.

Aroma: Quite fragrant yellow fruits, mango, floral, citrus, biscuits, lemon, grass.

Taste: Light malty very light grapefruit, thin hops and grass.

Mouth Feel: Watery, light malty, light citrus.

Comments: Too lightweight for an IPA. Very average.

Hopfiger, weich bitter-malziger Beginn mit englischer Anlehnung. Geringe Karbonisierung, kurzzeitig leicht alkoholisch. Nett. 10/11/9/10//10

First IPA from China I’ve tried and it’s a good, although a stereotypical product (well... it’s a product of China...). Hazy amber, with a medium white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits and so its taste. Fairly decent, with a big deja-vu after taste.

Very good IPA. Perfect color, nice hoppy taste but not overpowering. Not much more to ask for from an IPA really.

Moravius (1465) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2016
Vom Faß im GLB # 45, Peking. - Tiefes Goldgelb, leicht trüb, feinporiger Schaum. - In der Nase fruchtig-süße Mango, Litschi, Kiefern. - Antrunk sahnig voll und schwer hopfenaromatisch mit runder Mischung aus tropischer Frucht und Nadelwald. Honigartige Malzsüße. Mild rezent, öliges Mundgefühl. Im Abgang starke, harzige Hopfenbittere. Enorm langer bitterer Nachtrunk. - Sehr schweres, wuchtig bitteres IPA. Könnte für meinen Geschmack etwas lockerer daherkommen. (Verkostung: 13.7.2016.)
