355ml bottle poured into a teku glass.

Mildly hazed body and copper amber color, the pour forms up thick frothy white head that stands with pretty good retention before gradually sinking to everlasting bubble film on the surface, some lacing patch can be seen here and there.

In a nose, it discloses the aromas of mild floral, citrus, lemon rind, resin, some pine, slight herbal, and grass. All of these scents are derived from its hoppy goodness while malt is not forgotten with notes of biscuit and some caramel.

The taste starts with various hop flavors ranging from citrus, lemon rind, resin, pine, grass, and herbal. Then it is malt running in parallel with notes of biscuit and sweet caramel while the finish is hop again with its soft bitterness. Overall, it tends to be balance as hop bitterness is not too much and there is some malt as leverage.

The body is medium with smooth mouthfeel from its lively carbonation generated soft effervescence sweeping through the palate. The feeling is very crisp, very refreshing, a bit clean, and dry finish.

Considering the ABV, it is likely not a session IPA, however, the feeling is just right and very easy to drink due to its clean character, also the crispness and balance. It is easily suit in any occasion.

Perfectly hopped, not too bitter, not too tart. Light amber/caramel color with thick creamy head. Light caramel malt aroma, but taste is all hops. Dry abrupt finish. Lingering hop palate. Really, really good!

Picked up a cold six pack from Whole Foods while on Oahu. Golden brown/Amber pour with a solid head. Nice carbonation makes it pop. Aroma is floral and pineapple with a sweet malt kicker. Taste is acidic fruit with a dose of pine and grapefruit. Sweet malt base brings a hefty amount of caramel. Finishes very bitter and dry. Solid IPA.

Bottled beer in South Korea. It smells like a pineapple, tastes like an orange. It is too bitter for me to say its taste is balancing. Liked the look, smell but not the taste especially the finish taste.
