3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
36 cl bottle, BBE 10.2012
Hoppy aroma has exotic fruits, peach and mango. Palate is watery and flavour disappears rather quickly. Hoppy flavour has hints of metal. Needs more malt! I wonder if the japanese way to tax the malt amount in beer is reason for this?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lovely inviting nose which is reminiscent of white wine, resiny hops and a huge amount of mandarin orange. Good bitterness. Great balance. Mandarin orange being very present again in the taste. Dry finish which makes you eager to take another sip. A delicious, subtle double IPA with plenty of character.
