Notes/Commercial Description:
This is an ale that is not afraid of standing tall among other great beers. The intense, sharp and fruity hoppiness is backed by its complex, caramel-like malty structure. Big, yet refreshing. Bold but balanced. This beer has been designed to have it all, to be the greatest common denominator.

On the tap at the Globe in Hong Kong. Served in a Rogue Pint Glass

Comes with a one finger off white head that looks creamy and delicious. It leaves a lacing too as the head reduces too a rim. Body is copper with a red hue. Carbonation hardly visible.

Smell is hoppy, fruity and piney hops, some caramel undertone, nice and pleasant

Taste is hoppy bitter of the grapefruit and piney sort with a malt backbone that is caramelly, somewhere between your typical american and english IPA. Ends dry and a littly resiny. Resiny bitterness lingers forever.

Feel is extremely smooth with some fine tickling, medium body, leaves you dry and wanting more.

Very nice IPA that grew on me while drinking. I haven't had such a nice IPA for ages. I like everything about it and I have nothing to complain except for making me burp quite a lot. This beer reminds me again why I love this style. Thank you "The Globe" for having it on tab.

Deep red colour, 2 fingers of fluffy off white head, lots of lace here as well. Smell is of juicy citrus fruit and dank pine, quite hoppy up front giving way to some sweeter malts, caramel and toffee, a bit of an american barleywine like quality with a bit more tropical fruit. Taste is fairly bitter, malty followed by dank flavours, juicy hops, citrusy aftertaste, a bit sweet and overly malty. Excess carbonation, medium body and a bit oily, carbonation way too distracting. Average stuff and way too carbonated, the second bottle on a different day was better than the one reviewed but not by much.

Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!

A - Poured a crystal clear ruby hue with a nice one finger head that fades to leave a thin quarter inch blanket.

S - Aromas of citrus (orange, grapefruit), light caramel notes.

T - Taste isnt bad. More of the nose with light citrus, more grapefruit, a touch more caramel malts than I was expecting. Lends to a rather odd iced tea type flavour here. Not a huge fan.

M - Mouthfeel is fairly solid. Nice carbonation helps keep this up off the tongue.

O - Overall, not a bad brew just something going on with this taste. Weird hop/fruit/malt mix here and some booze gives this a rather odd taste and even more unpleasant after taste.
