Aggressively dry-hopped, West Coast-style India Pale Ale with a freshness and balance that can only be found in a locally brewed beer. Its robust flavors sit on a rich base of malt, complimented by bracing bitterness, and the fragrant citrus, tropical fruit and pine aromas of some of our favorite American and Australian hops.

Melker (267) - Göteborg, - JUN 19, 2014
At the roundhouse taproom (tap). Not hoppy enough, dull and a bit thin. Fruity and a little bit caramel.

Thanks to Gabriel - Country tick #130. Pours golden orange white head - nose and taste of grapefruit, caramel malt, light floral hops - lighter bodied.

adamnowek (3511) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2017
Hazy bronze. Massive, bubbly head. Aroma is lime. Taste is also lime, though there’s bits of lemon and moon cake. Quite sweet.

Smithld1 (350) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2016
Bottle in hk. Deserves a much better rating. A bit of a chemical smell but the taste is pleasant. Peachy. Good drop.

GuideDogSaint (1809) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUN 23, 2016
Old rating from 28 June 2016. On tap at Liquid Laundry, Shanghai. Pours golden brown with a thin white head. Feeble malt, citrus pine aroma. Sweet finish. Entry level ipa.

kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Very hazy amber/golden colored beer. Small white film head. Aroma is earthy, tingy malt. Palate is cool. flavor is medium malt with a sharp bitter finish. Aroma too malty, not enough head. Not west coast style. More like a European made AIPA, but this is HK so that’s apt.

anders37 (27615) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2016
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden pale orange color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty grassy grapefruit hoppy aroma. Fruity malty grapefruit hoppy bitter flavor. Has a fruity malty grapefruit hoppy bitter finish.

eduardovl (1490) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 16, 2016
330ml bottle served in an ordinary glass. Enjoyed in Hong Kong. Pours a slightly hazy orange color forming a medium light white head with medium to low retention and only few spotty lacing left in the glass. Nose is nice. Refreshing. Strong citrus notes. Pale and caramel malts. Notes of pine, resin and tropical fruits. Passion fruit and grapefruit. Taste follows the nose: Citrus, pine, resin, caramel malts, pale malts. Quite bitter. Earth notes. Dry finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Resin and grapefruit in the aftertaste. Good drinkability. Nice Hong Kong IPA. Deserve a better qualification.

drjoeng (1461) - SINGAPORE - NOV 17, 2015
7%ABV.  IPA. Poured out of the bottle a clear deep amber.  18ºSRM. Nose is malty and alcholic.  There are roasty, sweet malty flavors.  There is an aroma of roasting chestnuts.  Quite nice.  Some wet yeasty aromas linger.  Coming back I get some nice sweet medicinal aromas of licorice. Mouthfeel is soapy and alcoholic.  After the gravitas of the fumes start to fade, you get some nice graham cracker, caramel and cracked barley.   Some nice nutty flavors with sugar sweetness, reminiscent of French burnt peanuts or Jordan almonds. Not much in the way of hop character. Finish is brief and again, not very interesting.

Draft. Pours a hazy reddish color. Aroma and taste are sweet and malty, doesn’t taste like an IPA at all.

beermeup1985 (2) - jackson, Alabama, USA - JUL 8, 2015 does not count
this beer pours a copper colour with a white head. the smell is of sweet malt and american hops. the taste is fruity with little to no bitterness. in all fairness it deserves A better score. i wpuld have it again really nice for what it is.
