By combining the city of Seoul's passion for flavor with the freshest hops on the West Coast, The Booth's signature Hop Ale is forged. Its dazzling golden hue will make you shout Eureka! The nose bursts with the playful arrangement of citrus rind, melon and pineapple. And the flavor notes are so full with tropical accentuated with minimal bitterness and a tasty finish, it will leave you sipping to the last drop.

I wouldn't describe it as hazy, though they do. It's definitely opaque, in a golden/orange/amber sort of way. Nice fluffy white head lazily settles back in leaving good lacing as it does.

Nose is big sweet tropical fruits and melon off the bat. Some citrus (more orange/tangerine than grapefruit), and none of it is super discrete, but all quite pleasant.

Flavour follows the same cues: orange and a little bit of earthiness with a lightly bitter finish that actually kind of builds up in the middle layers.

Finish carries some bitterness, but it's dull, not biting. There's a little chalkiness that I associate with a lot of the hazies I've had, so at least in that regard it's a little hazy, which is too bad because it's not a characteristic that I particularly prefer.

Pours a bright opaque straw, similar to pineapple juice, with a thin white head. The smell is bright and vibrant, oranges, tangerines, pineapple. A hint of malty vanilla in the background.
Taste is mildly sweet and lightly tart. Leans more toward the pineapple with notes of citrus peel on the tail end.
Feel is a bit thin for the style. Creamy but a bit light, more like you would expect from an american pale ale.
Overall this is a very nice beer, this can (3 days old from the canning date) is not the best batch which may be a function of it still being a bit green and maybe with a few more days in the can the flavors and mouthfeel will get a bit more cohesive but as is it is a fine tasty beer if you like juicy, citrusy IPAs

Canned 8/14/18, consumed 9/1/18

Decent hazy. Aroma and flavor of tropical fruits and citrus peels with some floral, herbal, and danky hop notes. Feel was a medium-light and a bit thin, ok smooth, not creamy, no real bitterness. Not really standout from the insanely huge hazy, but enjoyable and easy drinking nonetheless.

Hazy straw yellow pour is cloudy but not super opaque. It has a tart, grapefruity aroma with a flavor to match. For a juicy IPA it ain’t bad at all.
