Intro: A friend brought this bottle to Hong Kong for me as its not available there yet. A 12oz bottle poured into a La Chouffe tulip. Best by 22 May 2015.
Appearance: Poured a deep amber orange colour with slightly less than one finger head. It’s darker than most IPAs but appears clear.
Aroma: It has a nice aroma but its not exactly leaping out. When it does appear though, its with nice tropical fruits and pine.
Taste: Mango, pineapple, more tropical fruits, pine, so good… with some grapefruit bitter ending.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, slightly sticky, medium body and medium carbonation. Feels great in my mouth.
Overall: A very nice IPA which I would definitely buy again if I could somehow get my hands on more.
