COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a tasty tribute to a beloved and iconic beer style - the India Pale Ale. The style goes 200 years back - has been through every spectrum of the flavor palette and had it’s ups and downs on the IBU scale. This time around we re-created a contemporary style IPA - basically the taste of the perfect IPA right now. Understated hop flavors, fruity and crisp. The future is now.

GoufCustom (2120) - HONG KONG - OCT 17, 2017


330 ml can bought at YATA in YOHO Mall, Yuen Long.

Looks: Translucent golden honey; One finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for 1 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with active carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant Ale malt, with strong passion fruits, mangoes, peaches, floral, sugar, spices, pine, bread, light lemon and grass.

Taste: Mid to light sweet fair Ale malt, with grains, strong wheat, fair grapefruits, passion fruits, floral, light sugar, light spices, dough, lemon, quite strong bitter hops and fresh grass.

Body: Close to medium body. Dry and very slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Fairly good Ale maltyness in a somewhat empty but very smooth backgaround. Wheaty and grainy with moderate grapefruit but expressive passion fruits. Flowery with light sweetness, light spicy but very doughty with lemon to round. Fairly good.

Hoppiness: Strong passion fruits, mangoes, peaches, floral, spices, pine, light lemon and grass in nose. Light grapefruits, passion fruits, floral, light spices, lemon and fresh grass.in taste; Bitterness is fairly strong for a lasting, mid to high-astringent bitter-sweet doughty finish.

After Taste: Quite Dry. Grassy and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one has pretty nice tropical hoppy aroma which fades quickly, and the malt taste is empty, gariny with too much doughtyness (smooth oat maybe?) to offset the otherwise nice grassy passion fruits. Only a partial success. Once is enough.

Can from Crows. Poured a hazed bright yellow gold with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma of light tropical fruits, melon, guava and kiwi skins. Flavor is kiwi, melon, cantaloupe, guava and grain. Body is a bit full and foamy from the big foamy carbonation.

Mudded aroma and taste. No hop characteristic stands out to me. Slightly cloudy brass color. Modest head.

vinivini (2818) - Gomel, BELARUS - SEP 15, 2017
Can. Cloudy golden ale. Soapy white head. Good retention. Aroma: danky fruit, dough, some fresh resin, distant honey. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation. Rather dry taste. Subtle honey starting. Dough in the middle. Hoppy ending. Resin, grapefruit. Solid still soft bitterness. Hugely drinkable and refreshing. This is the IPA how I like it even though it may not be the ever best of style.

12 oz. can. Batch #013. Pours a medium, well retained off white head, over a hazy yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose initially is fruit with citrus peach tones, evolving quickly, to grass, dank tones, moderate allium, minimal malts, balance heavily to the hops.....taste is mild malts, with light cracker, dank grass, light pine, allium, finishing with moderate hop bitterness, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation. The hops are dominant, and have an unpleasant allium in both aroma and flavor. A change in the hop profile would improve the beer as would a slightly more present malt backbone. BJCP 5/3/9/4/5

Let me ask you, how often do you find yerself drinkin stupid contemporary ubiquitous IPA because its everywhere? I do all the time and I don't even care for the style. So what about the color? I'll give it a 2 because its probably pale yellow, cloudy if I'm lucky. If you think otherwise, I'll raise the number, just beermail me. Smell? Right from the can, it is mildly sweet hop perfume, no sign of recent hop BO, BTW, of which I am glad. Totally big dull hop, past its 24 hours of freshness to be effective, first impression. Yes, big hops, what else is to be expected of an IPA except that many IPA try to be a double IPA? Some kind of big civilized attempt? Forget about it, this is just another big dull, past the week of expected, hop tasting bonanza. So be it. What else can be erected, oops I mean expected? Nothing.
