Brewery: Heroes Beer Co.
Country: Hong Kong
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Other Notes: The sky diving golden phoenix
Brewer Description: (from can) Kupzzy the phoenix was born with unparalleled vision, which she used to lead her followers through rains and storms. But the sky is getting darker than ever as a dark force is bringing in unprecedented cyclones and thunder. The only clear path she sees leads her flock into a terrifying cluster of black holes.
Time is pressed and forward is the only way through if they don’t want to get wiped out by the storm. She takes the lead, and dives into the black hole, only with hope that there is a bright warm sun waiting for them at the other end.
In Time Hazy DIPA is a beer you should dive into right away. Intense aromas of limes, grapefruits, mangoes, and papaya with hints of coconuts. Hazy but smooth and juicy on the palate. Just like a glass of fresh squeezed juice, drink it fresh and drink it in time.

Intro: A 330ml can, canned on 25th August 2020, poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A hazy orange colour with an almost two finger white head that had decent retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Juicy, citrusy lime, orange rind, papaya and mango.
Taste: Juicy sweetness, mango, papaya, citrus rind, light bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, light to medium bodied, with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice tropical juiciness, but a little sweeter than I prefer. Still, it’s another good NEDIPA in an ever improving beer scene in Hong Kong.
