4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A lightly hazed orange colored beer with a small, short lived off white head.
Lovely hop scent, reminiscent of Stone IPA, yea....it smells that damned good! Tastes just as good with a thick, chewy, orange blossom honey & cookie dough malt initial hit, quickly followed by massive industrial hops. Under this is a complex, tangy, lambic like flavor. Make no mistake about it, this is one well constructed beer and just might have moved into my "Favorite Japanese Beer" position! To top it off, I met two gorgeous young ladies at the brewpub!

Coffee, cake, sweet, malty, bready, citrus, fruity notes in taste. Sweet bready aftertaste. There is something minty in a taste which I can’t quite identify. Quite nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
스루가베이-임& IPA 8.5% ABV 자몽-오렌지향, 탁한 침전물.치솟거& 널뛰기 없는 차분한 정석 IPA. 탁한 황갈색, 얕게 날리는 시트러스, 두꺼운 과일 향. 복잡하진 않은, 디테일이 화려하지 않은. 맛도 엠블럼 처럼 불꽃놀이 하듯 꽃피는 맛이 터져나왔더라

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Extremely light and mellow for an IIPA. Gentle aromas of honey, floral essence, grass, hay. Hops are far removed from the aroma. Taste reminiscent of a golden ale ( pretty light, eh?). Mild bitterness and hop bite at the finish. Complex and compelling.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours rather deep gold with white head. Aromas are piney hops, sweet. Seems light when you first get it in your mouth, but gradually swells to a full bodied, balanced bitterness beer with a nice long finish. Maybe a little light for an imperial ipa, but altogether enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours a coppery gold with a foamy/creamy off-white head. Aroma seems mixed citrus, fruit and pine. Strong,but not biting. Med + body. Flavor is strong, and a rather unusual fruit leads off. Making me think of plum. It’s pretty dry, and has a persistent bitterness, but the fruit suggests otherwise. Not really understanding the malt - it has to be there to hold the hop, but I’m conflating hop and malt bitterness I think. Very different and quite tasty.
