My beeradvocate.com rating: 2.98
My ratebeer.com rating: 3

Intro: A 330ml bottle bottled on 25th February 2016 and poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: It poured a slightly hazy golden orange colour with a two finger off white head that had decent retention and left nice streaky lacing.
Aroma: Strong citrus lemon and pine with bready malt and a hint of tropical fruits.
Taste: Citrus grapefruit and lemon, pine, strong bitterness in the middle and breadiness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Mid to light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: It was ok, probably a bit too malty for my liking in an IPA. I definitely preferred their Session IPA.

    1. I haven’t been to Taiwan in the last three years, but apparently in Taipei and Kaohsiung quite a few craft beer bars and bottle shops as well as local Taiwanese craft breweries have opened up. I’m currently traveling in Busan but should be able to give you some addresses and locations soon for you to check out. Apologies.
