2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 14A adapted). Bottle 33 cl - Batch J.14.02. AROMA: no hop notes with sweet malt aromas reminiscent of caramel. very low fruitness. APPEARANCE: amber color and hazy. moussy tanned head with good retention. TASTE: medium bitterness that lingers into a dry finish with no hop flavours. unbalanced high malt flavours. PALATE: medium-light body with moderate carbonation. OVERALL: although the comercial description says it is a IPA, this beer is unbalanced towards a sweet malt profile but its not that bad.

Draught at Bungalow. Deep amber colour. Aroma has malts and caramel and is slightly sour. Dry spicy flavour, more malts than hops for what I expected.

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.
