4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2009 From a 22. oz bomber. Excellent brew. Has an extremely hoppy aroma, and pours a murky orange-brown. Flavor was really hoppy, but pretty refreshing at the same time. A fantastic beer, I’ll definitely have to buy again.

Nose mostly piney with a touch of herby smokiness and a bit of eatery fruitiness as it warms up and breathes. Bitter, good hop flavor, pleasant mid-weight mouth feel. Nice bitter finish with no harshess, mainly hop flavor. A well-done IPA.

"Pretty copper body with a thick creamy beige head. The aroma and hop content were a little disappointing, but nice none the less. i was expecting a little more strength in both areas. However it has a nice mouthfeel, the taste was well balanced, slightly sweet and not bitter. A very soild IPA,

Visual: Pours yellow orange with a small fine head, hazy layer of retention, lots and lots of fast streams.
Nose: bright sweet citrusy malts, honey (lvl-7)-pungency
Attack: thick, fine micro CO2, exceptionally smooth entry
Mid-palate: continual creaminess, (lvl-6)-sweetness, tangy backdrop, (MAIN) orange, honey, toffee malt
Finish: stealth soft bitter hops, malty clean finish.
Summary: Inconceivably smooth. A zen-like balance of sweet, creamy, bitter, and alcohol. The finish could be slighter longer but otherwise flawless.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Stone in Asagaya. Pours a clear orange with a medium-sized off-white head. Grass, twigs and resin on initial nose, but as it warms up lots of orange marmalade, grapefruit and tangerine come out. Juicy citrus with some malty sweetness, but a solid dry bitter finish that lingers. Classic-style IPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Big fat piney nose, with heavy caramel drippings, grapefruit, some tropical fruit -- all deep and pungent. Cloudy dusky gold, thick white head. Caramel, thick and rich and tasty, hopping enters in mid palate and transforms the caramel chunkiness into a pleasant stew, perfectly seasoned. Moderately long bitter tracks.Solid, complete, and satisfying. It’s nearly a caramel bomb, but it’s saved by the bittering hops. A great IPA.
