12 ounce bottle from Belmont. Always after Japanese ticks:) Anyway, pours a cloudy orangish hue with a large white head. A big fruity nose, some oranges and yeast. The flavor is tart oranges, dusty, malt, caramel, a bit thin. Lacking overall. Wheat perhaps. Sort of reminds me of a Hefe with an orange in it. OK.

From bottle. Pours a orange yellow with a small white head. Almost no head. Aroma is subtle floral and caramel notes. Taste is floral, citrus, some caramel, and a little sweet. Not much bitterness, but nicely done. Medium mouthfeel, a little slick. Good carbonation. A very easy to drink and nicely pleasing IPA.

Yellow orange pour into hitachino glass. A weird sugary maltiness combined with hints of orange. Some hop finish. Not my favorite hitachino.

Drinks like a sweet pale ale. Not in any way an IPA. Big on the orange and sweetener, but little else. Another dissapointment from Hitachino

Davros (1939) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2014
Pours amber with a quickly fading head. Nose shows sweet malt, orange peel, soft spices, woody notes and incense. Different. Interesting flavours too. Alcohol, sweet malt and a woody incence note again. Finishes with an assertive bitterness but little of the way in hop flavours. Needs more carbonation, feels watery.

DuffMan (6738) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle. Hazy medium amber, thin off white head. Malty caramel, tea-like tanninic dryness. Quite dull, with verry little fruity aromatics or hop character. This may be an old bottle, but it was quite a dud.

Keg at Popeye, Tokyo. Clear pale amber, small head. Aroma of tangerine peels. Mid sweet with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Tangerine and crystal malt. Mid bitter finish.

minihame2 (203) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 21, 2014
Copper color, thin white head. Mild hoppy aroma, fruit and sweetness. Soft mouthfeel, with some bitterness. Not as sharp as regular IPAs. Slight citrus taste. Nice beer but a little bit weak for an IPA.

jonno (2316) - JAPAN - FEB 16, 2014
Less an IPA and more a fruit beer - the Daidai component overshadows the hops and gives theis a sweet, slightly cloying finish. Alright for a fruit, but if I want an IPA I will not go for this again.

hawthorne00 (2429) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle. Clear gold with a small white head that fades fast. Aroma of orange marmalade, honeydew melon, grapes, somewhat medicinal herbs. Medium bodied, lowish carbonation. Bittersweet oranges, caramel, melon, earthy and herbal notes come through at the end. Eventually a little bitterness registers. Pleasant, mellow.
