Intro: A 330ml can, packaged on 6th September 2019 and with a best before date of 6th December 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A very hazy orange colour with a big two finger white head that had great retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, tropical mango, citrusy, orange zest and pith, splash of lime and a light grassy note.
Taste: Good sweet and bitter balance. Mango, mandarin peel, orange zest, and some lightly grassy.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I like it. One of my favourite IPAs from Hong Kong so far, and the scene definitely keeps improving. Juicy, zesty, with a good balance between sweet and bitter. Goes down easy and enjoyable to drink.
