MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Citrusy hops and lean cereals meet before leafy hop resins provide a flavorful bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the amber-hued golden.
-The mouthfeel is soft and feels natural.
-The flavor profile is balanced, as is the case for almost every Baird beer Iíve had.
-This is highly drinkable for the style.
-Aromatic hops could be more engaging for the style.

Bottle.

KyotoLefty (6643) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 3, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 On tap at Cheers. Light copper color with a thin head. Aroma: quite hoppy, with light malts. Light rye feel in the mouth. Good maltiness, caramel and fruity, but light. Great hops.

Bottle at RBJG 2 Grand Tasting, thanks KyotoLefty. Amber colour with a small white head. Fruity hops aroma. Flavour matches the aroma, fruity hops.

TimE (3298) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 21, 2009
Spicy rye and cinammon notes hit the nose with just a touch of citrus. Spicy, fruity, fig, citrusy mouth. Lingering bitterness. Rye is nice, but I didnít find the beer particularly balanced - odd given that all other Baird beers are balanced, even if I donít like them.

sunevdj (3263) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 7, 2013
Bottle at Timís RPJG#2. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Smells of hops. Sweet and hoppy. Bitter. Lots of hops aromas. Medium bodied. Dry finish. Medium to high carbonation.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 Wow the nose is a joy to behold. A floral bouquet of hoppy joy. The mouthful unfortunately is a little thin, which detracts from the flavour. The malts are solid here, as is the hops on top. If this were a little more full bodided they would truly be on to a world class beer here. Lets hope they tinker with this and improve it next year! 2012 version. Excellent, excellent IPA. Lots of citrus and a bit spicy. Could be drier, but thatís a minor quibble.

maekchu (2247) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle. 2012 vintage. Thanks to Robert Y. for sharing this. Deep, serious hoppy aroma. Gold honey color. Tangy, peppery initial; sweet, malty mid; final is peppery and tingly. Medium body. Pretty damn good. The hops are along for the ride the whole way.

mds (2230) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
Draught at Raku Beer in Hiroshima.
Pours copper orange with a small ring of head. Smells of melon. Bready and very fruity with a slightly sour finish.
