Can from Stone in Asagaya. Shared at a tasting. Lightly hazy orange with a one-finger head of foam. Lots of citrus and grapefruit on the nose with some orange marmalade and biscuits. Heavy and full-body with average carbonation. Sweet on the palate with a bitter finish. Orange zest and light grass on the finish. Solid enough.

Amber color with a thin/minimal head. Aroma of piney hops and a bit of citrus. Heavily hoppy flavor, lots of pine, citrus, and a bit of malty sweetness. Alcohol is hardly noticeable. Slick mouthfeel with a heavily astringent finish. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Naples: Poured a solid golden elixir and was paired with a thick fluffy foam head. Aroma is fragrant with some touches of citrus like hops but there is also a heavy base of rye malts that intrigues my nose. Smooth palate with very fine carbonation levels while the beer doesn’t leave behind any harsh finish or aftertaste. As for the drink, the beer has minor notice of hop bitterness while the bready rye malt is what distinguishes the flavor of this IPA.

Light amber color. Fairly subdued rye nose with a bit of hop character. Fairly big rye character, fairly malty. Kinda jumps up and then goes no where special.
