COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brew bursts with hop character while still achieving a sublime balance due to a firm, robust malt backbone. It is a cross between an English-style and American-style India Pale Ale that is full-bodied and refreshing all at once.

JanLaursen (3159) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2011
Hazy orange with a frothy durable tan head. Aroma is a little nutty and caramelish with a very hoppy profil - slightly floral with notes of grass and citrus, especially grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet and heavy hoppy - resin, grass, grapefruit. medium body, oily texture, average carbonation and a very long bitter finish. A nice American-japanese take on the style.

GBBF 2011. Bottle. Pours copper with some haziness. Nose is subtle malt and citrous, with some herby, woody notes. Taste is spicy, malty and some woody malt notes. Hops giving some citrous and tropical fruit. In the background there is something spicy that I can’t quite put my finger on. Cedar wood?

NosirIwont (1980) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a big, but diminishing off-white/beige head. A bit of lacing, but nothing impressive. Slightly tart, citrus and pine hop aroma on a malty background. Good. Sweet, citrus and pine hop flavour with a fruity overtone and malt in the back. Metallic notes as it warms, as well as a touch of yeast. Dry, tart, bitter hop finish with a lingering fruity/malty/grassy note. Overall pretty good, but it gave some impressions of an IIPA rather than an IPA, but didn’t follow through; in some ways it felt too light for an IIPA, yet in others too heavy for an IPA, making it somewhat inconsistent. Oh well... 10.07.11.

Bottle in Craft Beer. Cloudy gold beer, good off white head. Light sherbetty nose. Palate is light and dry with fine carbonation. Nice crisp sherbetty fruit sorbet if guava, mango, passion fruit, water melon and pink grapefruit. A little creamy malt in the backdrop. Great stuff! Wish we could get to try more Japanese beers - many of them are very nice indeed!

Dazz3 (1552) - Hällefors, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2011
4/5 i mörkhet. Luktar humligt och lite ingefära. Fyllig, bubblig, söt och besk i smaken men en söt lätt besk eftersmak.
