KansaiBeerLvrs (3062) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 6, 2015
On tap at the Shirokita Park Fest. It pours a murky orange gold with a nice citrusy bouquet. The taste is sweet citrus - lime, lemon & orange. The bitterness is fairly full on but it’s pretty good.

JonMoore (2019) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Draught at Bashamichi Tap Room. Cloudy orange with thick white head. Aroma of citrus hops, grapefruit, taste similar plus spices, juicy fruit. Medium bodied, soft carbonation.

shoulderbroken (2733) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 25, 2015
Tap at Ant n Bee. Nice. Very silky, almost feels like a nitro pour. Low carbonation. Aroma has some lime and orange, taste has the same. Citrus is very dominant. Lemon drop sweets maybe. I like it but think i might not be able to have a few of these as the citrus is sharp.

TimE (4120) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 23, 2015
Frothy white head. Very nice dry hoppy nose with tons of citrus notes, orange peel and lemon peel. Very nice dry mouth with tons of hope and a mountain of dry citrus notes. Long lingering dry finish with citrus staying on the palate for minutes after. Excellent.

GenkiGonzo (619) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 20, 2015
Draught at Bungalow. Cloudy gold with good lacing. Tropical aroma with a hint of sourness. Flavour is all fruit, not enough hops for a beer calling itself an IPA in my opinion.

willisread (831) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 15, 2015
On tap at Nakameguro Taproom May 2014. Big citrus aromas with grapefruit, papaya and passion fruit present. Taste is sweet and bitter. A very fruit-forward beer. Iyokan pith bitterness on the palate. Big crisp and bitter finish. Juicy and refreshing, but one was enough.

Ferris (7690) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Draft - Sweet tropical fruit, flowery with a caramel backbone. Cloudy gold with a rich white head. Light tropical fruit, mandarin and a light bitterness. Fruit is very pronounced and dominates entire profile.

biirusaikou (1263) - - JUN 14, 2014
Mikan peel aroma. Citrus hops, lime, mild cereals, bitter finish. Nothing too exciting, the daidai bitterness clearly dominates over hop/malt flavors.

Citrus should lend itself to big citrusy IPAs, but I find this to be overtly sweet and juicy, when i like light, lean and dry IPAs. Still drinkable but the pint was more than enough for me.
