reebtogi (6350) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2017
330ml can pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and caramel with some grains. Taste is a grapefruit hop bitterness with a light caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a tasty and balanced brew. Recommended.

330ml can. Cloudy yellow colour, a full creamy and thick white cap on top. Aroma - grapefruit, lemon and caramel malt. Taste - caramel malt sweetness with grapefruit and lemony hops. Finishes kind of light. This IIPA series seems to be pretty malt heavy so far... Pretty good though.

JohnRMurdoch (5002) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 21, 2017
Can from BrewDog OnLine. Dark orange, good head. Sickly oaty barley sugar aroma. Sweet barley blackcurrant flavour. Sour blackcurrant aftertaste. Don't really like this much.

Brutally true IPA, I'm not sure why I didn't try this one earlier, doesn't do injustice to anyone IPA fro the States. Beautiful beer

GoufCustom (2129) - HONG KONG - JUL 30, 2017


330ml can bought at HK Brewcraft in Central.

Looks: Translucent orange honey colour; Two finger head with crumpety off-white foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing with slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant full Ale malt, with strong grapefruits, strong yellow fruits, tropical fruits, floral, sugar, spices, light herbs, pine, bread, strong lemon peels and strong sharp grass.

Taste: Close to medium sweet full Ale malt, with strong Amberness, strong grapefruits, citrus, floral, molasses, spices, pine, resins, herbs, biscuits, very strong lime, close to strong bitter hops and sharp grass.

Body: Full body. Thick and very oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Rich Ale maltyness in a pretty creamy and viscous background. Very limey from the get go, followed by very oozy pine and grapefruits. Flowery with medium sweetness, spicy herbal with strong citrus to round. Fruity and nice!

Hoppiness: Strong grapefruits, strong yellow fruits, tropical fruits, floral, spices, herbs, pine, lemon peels and sharp grass in nose. Strong lime, citrus, floral, spices, pine, strong resins, herbs and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, close to high astringent bitter-sweet malty finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Very limey oozy and bitter to mouth.

Comments: The cascade is doing some wonder to this one, with some pretty nice touch of tropical aroma and oozy taste on top of a malty, very hoppy lime-driven base. Lots of nice Cascade here and its seems to push the hops to the limit. A solid single hop IIPA!

davidezdonz (571) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUL 29, 2017
A 330ml can with a best before date of 15th November 2017. Poured into a Mikkeller tasting glass. It was a lightly hazy golden orange colour with a two finger frothy white head that had good retention and left nice lacing. Aromas of orange juice, honey, pine and caramel with hints of grapefruit. Tastes of bittersweet orange juice, grapefruit, pine and caramel while at the same time, quite boozy. Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Overall this was one was not really for me. My least favourite of the four single hop IIPA’s that I tried. It was the clear booziness that took away from my fully appreciating this.
