Tap at Beersaurus Ikebukuro Tokyo.Aroma is freshness of the grapefruit and the lemon from hop and orange lime lemon peel.taste is good balance with hop and malt.The hop is not too strong at all though it is west coast style. However,finish is different another west coast style IPA.Itís fruits peel bitter taste finish! The fruit peel becomes clearer by the time passage. Extra refreshing IPA!!

Limey like an Englishman. Thanks to the cousin in law of Chudwick the man of google. People may confuse the lime with mint, but they are mistaken because of crack smoking and silliness.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but was recently released. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, lime, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of bright citrus hops and citrus peel spicing with moderate pale bready malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, lime, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, herbal, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine and citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, lime, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, herbal, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of bright citrus hops and citrus peel spicing with moderate pale bready malt sweetness; with a very crisp malt/bitterness balance and minimal cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice citrus spiced IPA! All around good balance and complexity of bright citrus hops and citrus peel spicing with moderate pale malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Draft at Galbraiths in Auckland. Sort of a test, to see if the IPAs survive the trip. Cloudy yellow orange color, thick white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of bright orange, pineapple, lemon. Taste is orange infused rising white bread dough, spices. Very nice. Staff says it takes them about a month to get this, and I think it survived quite nicely.

Extreme citrus and although not a typical ipa very drinkable and refreshing. So far my favorite from this brewer I did not like the islander ipa at all and the idiot was ok at best. Good sessionable ipa for sure. Different and enjoyable.

Got 5 mins! Will demolish entire beer in the process. Kaffir lime leafs? Yes please. Dumped out a hazy gold with orange tinges, big stupid off white fluffy mound, considering drinking some of it out of my catís mouth. Dig this smell even though itís way off base... which is perfect. Kaffir is slaying it with near equal footing to the lemon and that damn zest fits in perfectly. This is pretty killer and finely crafted out. Incredibly fragrant with an unworldly sweet tie in. The Kaffir pulls this out of the "this smells like a beer" category. The taste is pretty much equal to the previous letters mushed into words by my sausagelike fingers of ice. Kaffir is strong, very very defined and wonderful. I love Kaffir leaves in food and rarely get to taste them. Finding the other stuff isnít super hard but takes some concentration. There be unsweetened grapefruit here that tags along right into the aftertaste of near mouth ruining bitterness, the lemon pokes in and out with great mystery, the zest is sneaking in the shadows. Softness in the mouth.. I like a beer that is gentle then treats me like its bitch. A unique brew. Ya. Good. Really good. Often one dimensional though. Ok, after considering my goopy Underroos Iíve revisited this seconds later and realized that Kaffir leaves should not rule the world but should smoke crack with Rob Ford. Hard on aside, this beer lacks complexity but if you like kaffir to the point of drilling holes in the leaves to satisfy a bizarre fetish then itís not a 4.1 as I calculated 3 mins ago. I canít stop thinking about Ferris... wtf?!?! Soon my love... soon.

22oz bottle thanks one of the cousins from the barrio - citrus peel. I get more mint than lime. Lime turns to mint peel as it warms. Interesting and summery.

On tap. Cloudy yellow hue. White head. Decent lacing. Smells of citrus, tart aftertaste could be from the lemon peel in the hopping. Overall nice and crisp. Maybe cheating with the lemon peel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
