On-tap served in a pint glass at Wishbeer, Bangkok.

It comes with hazy bright golden color with thick frothy white head that stands with good retention before slowly subsiding to a lasting foamy film atop and leaving plenty of lacing here and there.

Burst of tropical fruit and piney resin in the aroma, big citrus, passion fruit, and lychee too with lots of dankness and grass that play upon the support from malt.

Lots of sweetness through the palate sensation but it is not too excessive being balanced by intense tropical and resiny hop of pine, citrus, lychee, passion fruit, grass, and solid bitterness.

Medium body with some bold touch through the palate, the mouthfeel is smooth with moderate carbonation. The overall feeling is crisp with a dry finish.

Come see the Doctor to get your IPA fixed.

Slightly cloudy golden heady beer. Wonderful hoppy smell and taste. Bitter aftertaste but not overwhelming. Will definitely have another!

Has a sharp bite. Piney resinous finish. Smells like citrus and fresh grass and drinks like a sessionable dipa

Pours a slightly hazy orange gold with a white head. Smells of hops, malt, and slight citrus. Tastes of bitter hops, orange zest, grapefruit zest, malt, and pine. Medium body and carbonation. Overall a decent IPA. Not the best by stone however.

Great beer. Execeptional flavor and good color. Smells grainy instead of citrus. For a monster IPA not a very bitter after taste. Overall would drink again.

On tap at BC's Pizza & Beer

A: Pours golden amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a thin layer and laces very nicely.

S: Zesty citrus and pine, some dank herbal notes, a hint of tropical fruit, biscuity malt, and a touch of caramel sweetness.

T: Citrus, grapefruit rind, resinous pine, dank herbal notes, some tropical fruit slowly comes out, pineapple, mango, and passion fruit, backed with biscuity malt and a little caramel sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: More of a throwback, bitterness grabs you by the tongue. I've missed this kinda brew.
