Bottle - hazy orange with huge white head. Aroma of citrus hops, sweet malts and light fruit. Lots of well balanced stuff going on in the taste. Citrus hops, pine, very bitter, fruity, dry, long bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, moderate to high carbonation. Very good.

Beautiful and intensive hoppy aroma of citrus and fruits. Small but durable head with decent lacing. Hazy orange body. Intensive hoppy bitterness in taste combined with delicious fruity sweetness.

7% bottle from Rakuten. It poured a great orange honey gold which is my preferred IPA color with a fruity aroma, mint, citrus, tropical fruit but no head. The taste is ascerbic, bitter but with a fruitiness that creeps up in the finish with some graham notes. Pretty good.

Orange yellowish beer with a ridiculously large head. Lots of cloudberry jam on the nose. Refreshingly sweet and fruity aroma. Lots of bitterness. Grassy, grape fruity and strong hops. Crispy mouth feel. Medium body. This is a great IPA. Very very good. Especially the nose and bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 330 ml bottle from a shop in Shibuya. Bottle look intriguing, I wonder if the beer is as outworldish as is the design. Pours flat, literally no head but only a bit of lacing. Aroma... This is something I was waiting for - rich hop aroma, herbal, floral, citrus, tropical fruits. Nice! Taste comes in in different layers, starting out a bit soft and round, developing into biting bitterness and finally mellowing down to a sweetish-dry bitter finish. Body is surprisingly light and the hop bitterness feels somewhat thin, otherwise - thumbs up!

330 ml bottle. Hazy orange colour, huge frothy head. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus and tropical fruits, and floral hops. The flavour is grapefruity, dryish hoppy, with a little caramel malt in the background along with notes of tropical fruits. A very nice ’hop bomb’.

Hazy golden orange, frothy head. Floral hoppy aroma with citrus and notes of more fruit. Crisp mouthfeel, a light body, a little lively carbonation, some sharp sweetness suddenly passing into plenty of bitterness in the finish. Okay beer but not out of this world.

Bottle bought from Y Delyn Wine Bar, Mold. Pours a lovely vibrant orange colour with a thin but long lasting head. Aroma is peach and hops, with a taste packed with hoppiness and a slight hint of sweetness in the back. For a 7% beer you can only just about taste the alcohol; lovely and refreshing. Could well drink several of these and not realise!

Tørst with everyone for Joe’s visit. Pours a clear amber gold with a thin white head. Big citrus with a bit of tropical fruit. Medium bodied, a touch of alcohol, long and chewy malt, lots of earthy grapefruit. Rather nice, fairly easy.
