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.

Countbeer (5337) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2011
Bottle: Nice off white long lasting (never disappeared) vast foamy head on top of a hazy darker orange colored beer. Looks good. Smell is a mild mix of hops, citrus, cream, pine and pine apple, herbs and something gass-a-like. Taste is a mix of hops, hop flowers, fruit, citrus, pine, bitter, herbs, grass and slight hints of malts, caramel, cream and some sweets. Good bitter light fruity aftertaste. The bitterness becomes stronger and also a slight dryness comes up. Nice. Medium carbo, tingling mouthfeel, medium to light fuller body and a light watery texture. Good ipa from the land of the rising sun!

EdKing (2173) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2011
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?

JanLaursen (3227) - 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.

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!
