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.

Again, a couple of bonus points for being this good in China. New brewer, same name. Rich golden beer, small head by the time it came to the table on the third floor, great lacing. Truly massive nose of American hops, and a hop slam taste to match. Bitter, orange and grapefruit and pine tar ... among the best IPAs i have ever had, actually, and bonus points for being true to type and courageously over the top for China.

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.

colui72 (895) - HONG KONG - JAN 30, 2017
First IPA from China Ive tried and its a good, although a stereotypical product (well... its 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 (1238) - Beijing, CHINA - JUL 15, 2016
Vom Fa im GLB # 45, Peking. - Tiefes Goldgelb, leicht trb, feinporiger Schaum. - In der Nase fruchtig-se Mango, Litschi, Kiefern. - Antrunk sahnig voll und schwer hopfenaromatisch mit runder Mischung aus tropischer Frucht und Nadelwald. Honigartige Malzse. Mild rezent, liges Mundgefhl. Im Abgang starke, harzige Hopfenbittere. Enorm langer bitterer Nachtrunk. - Sehr schweres, wuchtig bitteres IPA. Knnte fr meinen Geschmack etwas lockerer daherkommen. (Verkostung: 13.7.2016.)

I am drinking now this beer at the Boxing Cat. In my opinion, it is a perfecr IPA. The body is copper, white and thin foam, regular carbonation. The taste is well balanced, bitter, malty, a bit citrus, perfect bitterness, I love that.
