Hazy golden colour with a big, foamy, off-white head. Very good head retention. Quite pretty.

Lightly citrussy with some real spice notes. Light honeyed malt aroma. Quite good.

Rich malt that supports a moderate hop flavour. Slightly citrussy with big cohumulone.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice.

A solid IPA but nothing amazing. Good flavour but there is really no X-factor.

Beautifully balanced IPA full of fruity goodness.

aroma: fruity/citrus aroma with oranges coming through most strongly

taste; fruity/floral with great balance. Nice orange and spice/peel coming through with some pine and a bready/malt backbone. Good bitterness and very drinkable!

Purchased in an IPA sampler pack from Wishbeer in Bangkok.

A cloudy amber appearance with thick head that lasts a long while and a decent amount of lacing on the glass.

Sweet bready smell with a decent amount of citrus and earthy hops.

Taste is strong. A solid grain / malt / bread base plus a hint of grapefruit and a crisp strong hops finish.

Medium body with a good CO2 bite.

Overall a good IPA. Well balanced flavor, but not over the top.
