Golden coloured beer with a huge cremy white head. Aroma is dominated by lots of hops and some grass. Flavor is grain and lots of lovely hops. Heavy palate and finish.

Draught at DC Gotanda. Great showcase of that lovely hop, heady citrusy weed juice, smooth balance, clean finish, seems to travel well too. A very welcome new import.

Tap at CBB Bud, Founders launch in Kansai. A deep clear bronze with sticky white lacing. Sweet malt mixed with pine aroma, something floral in there. Rich malt and pine flavour, really fresh tasting, very well balanced, nothing out of place. Smooth yet bitter, dank yet drinkable. Great stuff, far better fresh (4 weeks old) on tap than the cans Ive tried previously.

ALIBALI (1278) - Kiel, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2016
Der Centennial Hopfen in seiner vollen Blte, knnte man sagen. Eingebunden in einem ppigen Malzkorpus enfaltet dieser hier sein ganzes knospenzertrmmerndes Bouquet. Fruchtig, wrzig und mit viel Bitterness gerstet, setzt er schnell zum entscheidenen Schlag an. Knock Out ....... and think lemon 😊. Das Ende etwas zu kratzig herb. 0,33 Flasche von irgendwo. Ca. 3.

Can (Lord help us).335ml. Aroma of pink grapefruit, even allowing for my pouring technique its citrus and floral in the same way that walking through the perfume section of a department store is floral. So even without the encomium of the judges, its a recognizable beer. In the end I achieved a respectable glass with an amber body good white top. Taste is equally distinctive. The hoppy character of the IPA is is emphatically there but I agree with the marketeers that the malts quotient is ever present. British IPA brewers take note.

the aroma is fruity and spicy with hints of sweet citrus, pine, candy and spicy herbs... the taste is fruity and malty with bright hopping, notes of grapefruit, sweet orange, key lime, mango and spicy grasses... sweet, bitter and dry aftertaste...
