This quenching brew is crafted in the American west-coast style. It sports a beautiful soft citrus hop aroma which gives way to a round, honeyed-fruit flavor. The finish is crisp and refreshing.

"orange peel abounds in the nose and flavor which is nice but by the end, a little one dimensional. not much else going on save for the traditional malt balance. not bad though.

Típica pale, molt caracter de malta però molt ben equilibrada amb els llúpols que li donen un toc cítric. Típica pale, mucho carácter de malta pero muy bien equilibrada con los lúpulos que les dan un toque cítrico.

Pours copper with decent head that disappears quickly. The aroma is sweet grapefruit, lemon zest and a faint hint of pine needles. The flavour is sweet but the bitterness intrudes on what should be an easy drinking beer. Mouthfeel is lacking a little. Very enjoyable but not sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

360mL bottle Rather hazy sort of orange gold body to this one, holds a firm white head. Moderate aroma; honeyed malts, hoppy notes of citrus, grassy and lychee. Medium-full bodied, smooth somewhat creamy texture, subdued carbonation. Lightly toasted malt character on the body with notes of floral honey, hop notes of lemon rind & cut grass with moderate bitterness & lingering minerality. Not bad, lacking a bit of punch.

Bottle. Pours a light copper with a nice cloudy apearance. Aroma. sweet aroma of citrus. Taste. Straight i can taste grapefruit and pine needles, with the latter dominating with some nice watermelon sweetness finishing the beer off. Overall. Quite a good beer, the normal price point in my country however is what will stop me from buying it again, certainly worth a few if a good special comes up.

Cloudy and opaque with unfiltered appearance. Thin and wispy head, light sediment. Lightly aromatic of citrus with taste to match.

Light copper, clear, off-white head. This bottle is likely old. Aroma and flavor of oxidized malt with some caravel sweetness, low hop character, some leather.

Great Japanese beer. Certainly not a traditional Japanese beer, but fits very well into the craft beer space. Has a well balanced use of hops. Certainly one I'll drink again.

A very good pale ale. Had it from a bottle at Melbourne modern Japanese restaurant. Full body, light head, strong citrus and watermelon. Good summer session beer.
