Draught at CBM Koenji. Classic pine/citrus hop bouquet, fairly drinkable but would probably be nicer fresh. More or less another unnecessary average import.

Pours a cloudy light orange. Smells a little fruity, a little dank. Taste is dominated by dry floral, earthy hops. Not at all bad, but I like my session IPAs with more citrus or pine.

monk191 (1377) - California, USA - DEC 6, 2014
A solid session beer with a rich golden color. Smells fantastic with notes of pineapple, peach and hops. Taste is somewhat muted. It's well balanced with no bitter after taste, but taste throughout feels diluted. Easy drinker, but forgettable.

beertholomeus (1295) - California, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours a golden copper color with a white head. Hop, citrus, floral and malt aroma. Hop, resin, citrus, floral, biscuit and malt flavors. Unbalanced and a little aggressive bitterness with nothing to back it up. Medium light body and mild carbonation. Citrus, floral and astringent, overly bitter finish.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2015 Little taster. Grassy, dry malts, some citrus and pine. Crisp, light, refreshing. Quite nice and very drinkable.

Thanks for the hook up Albert! Hanshin Seed Event from a bomber. A clear gold, off-white head. Light malts, grassy in the aroma. Sharp carbonation, sandy mouthfeel. Clean green hoppy bitterness. Very bitter, pine all the way tasty but too bitter for me. Lots of flavor for less than 5% ABV though.

Cory (372) - , California, USA - JUL 1, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2014 Bottle. I think this bottle is infected. Lots of foam, a little tart in nose and taste, dry, very bitter in the back. Very different from when I had it on tap. On tap is was balanced, with a little earthy quality that was great. This bottle was missing a lot of the subtle qualities that made the beer very enjoyable. Too bad. It seems they have a QC problem. Usually great brewery though.

Bottle. A cloudy yellow orange color with a white head. A nice session IPA. The hops were plentiful to keep it interesting.

chsox13 (1) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 15, 2014 does not count
Earthy, floral aromas. Slight hops and hints of orange citrus. Palate bitter, earthy and alcoholic leaving little to the finish. Overall disappointing, I expected more.

Fatehunter (1759) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2014
The beer and foam came flying out of the bottle and all over me and the floor. A little later trying to pour it into the glass it quickly foamed up half of the glass. The body is a hazy straw color though. The aroma is grain and apricot. The taste is fairly well balanced and light tasting. There’s a touch of metallic, but it’s mostly lemon flavored. The texture is crisp with high carbonation. A poor beginning and the rest is okay.
