Young Master Galactic Passion

Brewery: Young Master Brewery
Country: Hong Kong
ABV: 5.7%
Style: International Sour Ale
Other Notes: 10 IBUs. Juicy, tart, hoppy

Brewer Description: (from YM webshop) GaLactic Passion is an extension of a sour IPA we once brewed. We decided to double down on the passion fruity notes of the hops with copious amounts of actual passion fruit. This is juicy beyond compare and truly out of this world.

Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 27th March 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A clear golden colour with a two finger white head that had good retention while leaving behind some lacing.
Aroma: Passionfruit, guava, candy, light tartness and funk, lemon zest and lime zest.
Taste: Tart, lemon, passionfruit, grass and light floral. The flavours are quite good, but disappear quickly.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly too watery.
Overall: I liked the aroma, but generally it was a bit too watery and the flavours while not bad, disappeared quite quickly and abruptly. Although I didn’t review it, I remember the previous Galactic Passion Sour IPA which I had in a crowler (maybe a few months to a year ago), came out much better.
