Bottle. Bought in Shinjuku. Excellent floral aroma. Small-medium head which dissolves somewhat quickly. Dark amber in color, full body, delicious! This beer has a lovely complexity consistent with Mikkeller brews, and hoppy bitterness consistent with BrewDog brews. Highly recommended.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A translucent bloody orange sits, calmly exuding a big white head of fluff. Aroma is all hops, delicious hops: spicy pine with a hint of sweet malt. I’m not a fan of hoppy beers but this is pretty close to perfection. A perfect balance of malt and spicy hops flow over a medium body. Simple, elegant, balanced and delicious.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ambery hazy with a big bubbly head. Nose that wonderful fusty creaminess resin from the dry hopping, sweet dry bitter, hay and citrus. Mouth is big, slightly carbonated, sweet resin, lots of hop, herbs, some summer berries, maybe just a hint of blood orange, gives hints at the start that it might be cloying, but then bam, hop bitterness kicks in for a lovely dry finish. One tasty beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber colour, somewhat frothy head. Sweetish exotic fruitiness, ripe berries, lots of resins, almost peppery, more citrusy hops in the finish. Ai hint of vegetably notes. Not too sweet, still sturdy with caramel and cookies. Intense bitterness, lingering and dryish finish. Very smooth texture. Very drinkable and tasty beer.

(bottle) pours a slightly hazy ruby-amber colour with a creamy off-white head. aroma of tropical fruit and a little too much resin, which makes it almost savoury, with lots of oranges, straciatella, some caramel and milk chocolate. flavour is mostly the same, lots of tropical fruits over a sweet malty backdrop, with a huge bitter finish, alcohol is not detectable. medium-bodied with average carbonation.
