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.

This beer happens to be everywhere in Seoul, South Korea at the moment for some reason. Pure slightly hazy orange. Strong fresh smell. Super bitter, especially in the finish. Doesn't stand out in terms of IPAs for me...

33cl bottle. Clear amber pour with a medium white head. Smells of citrus hops, honey and some tropical fruit, with the taste following the same notes. Bitter and refreshing.

12 Oz bottle unknown date

Golden, orange. Semi opaque per the unfiltered brew. Soapy minimalist head. Looks good.
Smells like grass but with some kinda weirdness in it? Odd. Detecting some fairly muted typical WC hop notes.
Clean ale backbone with a layer of citrus hops laid over. I am really only detecting citrusy fruit, grapefruit, orange, what have you, fair bittetness. A little grassy?
Biting carbonation, lightish body, a little bit of syrupy thickness. Good

Not bad, a little funky, overall - tasty. It's got your expected West Coast hops charm.

Bottled in October 2015. Drank at an expat pizza place in Busan, South Korea on March 2. Pours a slightly hazy deep copper color with a 1/2 inch of white foam; head doesn't keep too long; some sticky lace on the sides of the glass. Smells like citrus and grapefruit, with some grass as well. Tastes like a pale ale, a subtle blend of caramel malt and funky hops. The aftertaste has a nice peppery aftertaste from the hops. It's a lighter bodied ale that's refreshing and I could easily drink a few. Overall, a nice beer. I'd like to try it fresh to see if it's any better.
