omhper (18963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2010
Bottled, thanks baggio! Cloudy amber, creamy head. Rich cedar and grapefruit aroma. Mid-sweet with solid, vital malt. The combination o cedar and grapefruit is superb, the bitterness is evident, but nothing is ever assaulting - only relaxed yet concentrated. I’m so glad someone picked up this Japanese concept - especially someone as talented as Cigar City. This is probably the tastiest IPA I’ve ever had!

Hazy amber color; generous head. The aroma is very spice, with strong incense, and with some piney resins (no fruits). Strong caramel and toffee flavor, within a correct body; smooth, overcarbonated mouthfeel; medium residual sweetness; very resiny, with a sharp spices and incense profile. Strong bitterness, leading to a long final.
Surely original, and interesting the first time, but excessive.
