TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 17, 2009
Bottle (in NZ) - a taster. Big on the hop counter. But what a liked about this was the earthiness to the hops. So distinctive to the many West Coast IPAs I have been tasting in recent times.

Bottle at Hashigo Zake. Pours hazy deep amber. Big hoppy citrus aroma, spicey grapefruit, sweet caramel.
Big mouthfilling flavours. Lemony bitterness, great body to it. A beautiful balance between hops and malt.
It achieves a huge flavour while remaining super drinkable.

Theis (12777) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2009
Draught at Harajuku Taproom. Cloudy amber - offwhite head. Lovely hoppy, grass, piney, resin, medium malty, sweetness, fruity, sticky body, smooth finish.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 10, 2009
10/11/2009. Bottle, Hashigo Zake. Hazy rose gold. Grass and pepper hop aroma with a solid, yet understated, malt backing. Big hop flavour across the whole length of the beer: grassy, herb and a hint of citrus. Moreish nutty malt carries everything well. A little floral yeast note plays a part right throughout too. Nice.

TimE (2979) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 2, 2009
Dark amber color. Moderate grapefruity nose. The mouth is superbly balanced with moderate hoppy, ctirusy front and crystal malts shining to provide excellent mouthfeel. Moderately bitter finish. This is what a balanced Ameican IPA should be.
