3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes from my July 2010 visit to Tokyo. Draft in the Aldgate, Shibuya. Fairly big ass-kicking hop IPA. Pours orange amber, hazy with nice white head. Nose is very citrous with grapefruit predominant. Taste is strong bitter citrous grapefruit, orange, pine and a sharp bitter finish. Good malty backbone too.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Said to be 60-70 IBUS and 6.2% ABV. Another good solid IPA from Baird. Big wafts of grapefruit on the nose. Good solid bitterness initially with grapefruit and some stone fruits with a good length finish. Good body for the beer. Won’t knock your socks of,f but like most Baird, is a good, almost workman like, well put together tipple.
