3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This one pours a cloudy light copper colored body, tons of particles floating around and it has a small quickly sidesticking just off-white head. A bit low and non IPA-ish on the aroma, I get some fruitiness but itís subtle, itís somewhat sweet and almost floral. Also there are hints of mango and peach. Nice enough. Itís also quite on the sweet side in the taste. A bit to caramel-sweet if you ask me. Peaches and concentrated sweet honey melon. Subtle hoppy but still bitter. A strange interpretation on a IPA if you as me, but also a bit interesting. 25.07.2012

I visited Japan last year to see my family. I wasnít into craft beer then but had many Hitachino beers actually. Now Iím turning into a credit beer fanatic, Iím re-drinking them all over again. This one is okay. Not hoppy enough to my satisfaction but okay. Its pretty middle of the road.†

IPA... no it isnít, I mean no, absolutely zero % IPA. Smells little bit like caramel, malt, honey and alcohol. Even the taste has quite a lot alcohol, quite thick and bitter, but this is not an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is not American in hoppning. Lots of residual sweetness, earthy hops, light, light woody notes, amber colour, medium white head, lacing.
Big bite, softened by a noticable sweetness, good flavours, but not as uber hoppy as one is used to.
Medium body, average carbonation, bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Pale orange, small tight head. Initially a stodgy grain aroma, but later a white peppery hop aroma. Very weird twist in the taste, flavour ninjutsu, just when you think you nailed it from the aroma it dives out of the way and presents a different face. Very spicy, but more maustepippuri than white pepper. Sweetish malts give it a smooth palate, and thereís pleasant carbonation to keep it crisp. Taste so spicy, canít believe itís reinheitsgebot. So peppery. Very hard to score, itís reall quite off-the-wall. definitdely worth hunting out to experience something quite unique.

Aroma is floral hoppiness with notes of clove, straw and lemon grass. Some sweet malts aswell. Taste is roasty malts, caramel, light plum and some moderate bitter tang on finish. Light spiciness can be detected aswell. Appearance is amber/orange with a haziness and lots of fine sediment suspention. The thin white head retains moderately.
