Can from TNT Taisho.
L: pours a slightly cloudy caramel-red with a nice fluffy off-white head.
S: plenty of grapefruit, sweetened caramel malt.
T: strong citrus hop flavour, the sourness of grapefruit meshing nicely with the sweetness and malt.

O: a satisfying IRA, plenty of bite with a refreshing citrus burst.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drinkable for the style. It is hard to do a really outstanding IRA and this one is not bad. Not great, but totally agreeable with a steak dinner. Nice looking beer on draught with just enough head. Worth a try.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can (6.1%) from Trader Joe’s. Pretty fresh canned on the 7th. Deep crystal clear amber in color. Hoppy nose. Some grapefruit, along with a little dankness. Some candy sugar as well. Well hopped. Pretty pungent flavors with a decent amount of malt character. Finish is a little lacking, but overall a very good amber.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Pours a somewhat hazy dark amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose has quite a bit of floral and citrus notes, which was a nice little surprise. Taste is slightly bitter up front, but quickly changes to a muddled malty sweet finish with dough. Great smell, odd finish.
