IslandHaole (1159) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Looks nice in the glass. A clear copper color with a medium foamy beige head. Sweet toasty malts, (crystal?) light hops, definitely the milder type of IPA along British styles not the hop monsters from the left coast. Well hidden 7%. Quite sweet, too malty? Has some bitterness but lacking the flavor or aroma hops I’d expect. Leaves nice lacy rings in the glass. Well made, just not quite what I was anticipating with the IPA label, more an ESB.

Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy orange brown pour with a nice white head. Citrus, floral, pine, bread. Medium pour and carbonation. Slight bitterness. Seems light for a 7% but better than many japanese IPAs

biirusaikou (1494) - - JUN 29, 2015
Draught at Soul Bird. Sweet caramel mixed up with green hops, not much else, bittersweet finish. Quite bland and unbalanced, hasn’t improved at all since last time I tried it.

BuckeyeBoy (4068) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 3, 2015
330ml bottle pours out a copper color topped with a tan sand head. Nose is old cereal malts and and a touch of grassy hop. Taste is pretty much all malts and a tad of hoppy bitterness on the end.

Tim Webb (287) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2015
33 cl bottle at Ji Biru in Singapore. Too heavy (7.4% in true life) for a simple IPA, English or American, so flawed. Bitter-sweet approach and finish. Rammed with grain. Tangy at the back. Oooooooooooooh, all to complicated.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3565) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 21, 2014
Kinshachi IPA on tap at Craft Beer Man - I was sure I’d rated it before. A clear ruddy red pour with a thick beige head and a woodsy one bark like aroma. Medium-light bodied with an earthy pine bark bite and some residual sweetness in the finish. Quite nice.

maekchu (2905) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle. Citrusy hop nose, with some graininess, and bird seed. Hazy copper/orange color. very thick initial head. Citrus hop (again), big caramel, which all balnces and then flattens out pretty fast. Light hop coating in finish. Medium body. Flavors don’t develop much. The hop and caramel clump together at the outset and don’t really go anywhere after that. Okay.

jinroh (839) - ESTONIA - OCT 28, 2013
330 ml bottle from Takashimaya basement, Nagoya station. Pours with a nice top, color hazy copper. Aroma is not very hoppy, more like sweet toffee, malts, caramelized sugar. Taste resembles IPA a bit more but not completely. Sweetness shadows the alcohol content, hop bitterness comes out in the aftertaste. Feels creamy. Overall, not really an IPA as I know them, a bit too sweet, but I am happy I decided to try this.

Hypo_Luxa (59) - Osaka, JAPAN - SEP 26, 2013
On tap at Bubble Craft in Osaka, Japan. Aroma is resin, doughy and a bit eggy. Poured well. Small brown head, med size bubbles that died quickly. Metallic, copper, pennies, medium bitterness that is all on the tongue and sticks around longer than it should. thin feel, soft carbonation, astringent,

Westkyoto77 (573) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 17, 2013
Lovely copper red, thin head. Medium carbonation. Aromas of hops, sweet fruit, caramel. Rounded mouthfeel, nice bitter touch to finish. Not too bad.
