Bottle from K&G. Very malty, with good balance of citrus, but not really an IPA.

shoulderbroken (2179) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 6, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2013 Tap at Yellow Ape. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma orange, bit of yeastiness. Taste nice enough, decent orange, bitterness again, quite sweet but something not quite there. I like orange stuff so was a bit disappointed. Will try again some time. Rerate at home from bottle. Either I was pissed or it wasn’t as good on tap. Still not mindblowing, but the orange taste is pretty nice. Aroma is a bit caramelly and subtle orange. There is still something not quite there. Taste is good, but something about the body maybe. It feels too thick and not refreshing and crisp enough for me. But definitely prefer it this time.

Small bottle from Le Collier Marunouchi, Tokyo Railway Station. Pinkish orange brown, good head. Oregano resin hop aroma. Tastes like a herby pizza. Never had a beer like this before. Smooth with spicy aftertaste. Not sure why this is classed as a wheat beer. More a spice herb vegetable. Would go great with a pizza.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 04/2015
Aroma is rather sweet and heavy with caramel, some resiny hops and orange. Also some citrus. Flavour has grapefruit, fruity hops, resiny tones and caramel. Unusual IPA, but I seem to enjoy this. Heavy but still refreshing and not overwhelmingly sweet.

Fresh mikan aroma. Bitter orange, candy, fruity hops, bittersweet and sour finish. Good balance for a rich local fruity ale.

GoufCustom (874) - HONG KONG - DEC 22, 2013


330 ml bottle bought at Craftissimo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.

Translucent honey orange colour; One and a half finger head and crumpet off-white foam which lasts about 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with active carbonation; Fragrant sweet aroma of moderate ale malt, with orange flesh and peel, floral, honey, faint grapefruit, light vanilla and faint grass; Nice medium sweet taste of ale malt, with strong orange peel, light molasses, yeast, dough, light earth, light liquorices, strong lime, and strong herbal grassy hops; Mid to light body, oily palate; Mouth feel is lightened IPA with the usual grapefruit and pine elements being replaced by orange, peels and fruitiness. Still pretty malty and doughty. Sweetness is surprisingly low and pleasant; Hoppiness still shines with orange, floral and light grass in nose, strong lime, light earth and very sharp grass in taste. Astringency is lastingly good for finish; Fairly dry after taste, very fruity and hoppy to mouth.

Comments: This one has very good aroma, looks, heads and palate. Its taste somehow doesn’t back it up: the orange taste is well expressed without being cloying, but at the expense of 3C-ish hops which makes micro IPA so tasty. With a little more 3Cs and fruity sweetness, it’ll take off and blow you away. One step from being top!

superspak (2823) - Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2014
330 ml bottle into pint glass, bottled in 9/2013. Pours moderately cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of orange peel, lemon zest, tangerine, pear, apple, bread, cracker, light honey, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, orange peel, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of orange peel, lemon zest, tangerine, pear, apple, biscuit, cracker, light honey, herbal, floral, slight pine, and yeast earthiness. Slight floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of orange peel, lemon zest, tangerine, pear, apple, biscuit, cracker, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice and pleasantly balanced malt, hop, orange peel, and yeast ester flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice English IPA. Good balance of malt, hop, orange peel, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Interesting take on an ipa. Orange is prevalent. Somewhat sweet in middle. Not very hoppy. ...kinda like an English pale ale w Orange.

GenkiGonzo (360) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 3, 2014
Draught at Bungalow. Nice clear gold. Huge orane aroma with some hops. Very fruity flavour, starts sweet but has some hop bitterness after. Sadly not enough hops for what is labelled an IPA. Nice summer beer.
