A: Pours murky beautiful orange with a medium large off-white airy, but still a bit compact head that leaves rather nice lacings.

S: American bitter but even more floral hops brings grapefruits and oranges and in the back pine. Dryness from the rye, kind of bready.

T: Rich floral hops gives this a tropical-fruit-salad-vibe - really nice; pineapple, grapefruits, ripe oranges, peaches. Bitter hops together with the bready rye balances and makes this pretty awesome.

M: Long bitter tropical-fruity aftertaste. Body is medium but bone-dry. Carbonation is held to a very low level.

O: This is a fantastic example of floral hops galore, balanced by rye and bitter hops.

The beer is hazy copper amber, has a bubbly off-white head, leaving much lacing and has good curtains.

Smelling mainly sweet fructose citric, grape-fruit, lemon, but also hoppy pine resin nuances. And some cheese.

Starting sweet toffee and rye bread, grape-fruit peel, pine needle tea.

Medium low carbonation, oily and slick, a big body, a warm dry finish.

Extremely hoppy but not extremely bitter. A very balanced and good American IPA (on the border of DIPA), not as sweet as most. That is good in my book.

A: Cloudy and golden with lots of soda like carbonation. Topped with two fingers of glassy off white head containing foamy bubbles.



S: Tropical fruit, pine, red peppers, onions, dank, papayas and mangos.



T: Orange candy, tropical fruit, cereal malt, hot peppers, big bitterness lingers on the tongue. Evergreen forest.



M: Medium resinous body, soda like carbonation that finishes like foam. Relatively dry overall.



O: Got this at Beer Box in Chiang Mai, drank in Kunming, China on April 6th, 2015. Alcohol is really well hidden, relatively dry and smooth with a big amount of spiciness and bitterness.
