4/1/2014. 12 oz. bottle bought at Jester King. Pours light amber with a creamy white head. Malty and spicy aromas. Low carbonation. Somewhat mellow but the orange peel shows with good balance without being overpowering. Hints of tea with a bit of sweetness on the finish. Interesting brew.

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.

330 mL bottle. Pours a golden amber with many particles of varying sizes, a white head. Overripe orange aroma. Flavor is again of orange, some grapefruit, stale pale malt. Not sure how old it is, but it seems the orange peel is rather overpowering any hops that may be in there.

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 (1806) - 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 (6162) - 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.
