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

Bottle at wvrst. Faint orange aroma. Once this warms, get orange citrus accompanying hoppy finish. Very drinkable.

04/21/15 from 12 oz bottle. Amber color with one finger head. No hops aroma just yeast. Strange orange carmel taste, unusual for an IPA. Not impressed.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Toffee, orange peel, and a hint of caramel.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy amber colour, with a lingering white head.
Taste: Caramel, orange, and a slight hoppy bite.
Palate: Quite sweet throughout, with a bitter aftertaste. Light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Quite unusual... in a good way. A nice, sweetish beer, with enough of a hop kick at the end to remind you it’s an IPA.

Bottle from Yamaya, Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan. A hazy orange/amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Orange, caramel aroma. Tastes similar, orange, caramel, sweet yet bitter. Tasted slightly unbalanced at first but once into it quite liked this.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It’s a strange beer all round. It pours bright orange with thin lacing, lots of sediment (or does this actually have fruit in it?). The aroma is not much hops, lots of citrus and a strong grain smell, has that funk hops smell of Belgian beers. The taste is very smooth, light, low bitterness, lots of toffee malt flavours but not syrupy at all, very refreshing. They say it’s an IPA but I’d call it a session Belgian ale... with fruit.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours orange with a weak head with a light body with moderate carbonation. I don't think this beer has travelled to well. In the nose it's slightly buttery and sweet with a bit of orange. Taste is quite earthy and grainy and nothing to special.
