3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Asahiya, 6.1% it pours a gorgeous copper with a thick off white head that is long lasting & leaves spotty lacing in itís wake. Juicy hops burst forth from the glass and set my mouth awatering. Big bitter earthy pine, woodsy & green (pine fresh?) assaults my tastebuds. An old school IPA not as complex as those these you see these days but it definitely lives up to the style.

Sharp hops, green, citric, but not light, shine of alcohol. Classic American, especially in development. Straightforward bitterness, drinkable and tasty but not too refined. Thin ending, but nice brew. (33cl can from Saveur BiŤre)

Hazy amber with an off-white head. can was a gusher even though I didnít shake it or anything. Aroma of tropical fruits and some malts.
