IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, - 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.

maekchu (2052) - 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 (328) - 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 (53) - 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 (515) - 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.

evergreen0199 (1994) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle from my wifes relative in Nagoya, Japan. An amber coloured pour with a small white head on top. Hoppy, fruity, caramel aroma. Tastes similar hoppy, fruity, caramel, malty. More like an ESB than an IPA.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2012
Medium offwhite head. Deep amber body. Resiny minty spicy aroma with floral malty notes. Dry-sweetish caramelly wooden taste with perfumy minty alcohol notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish caramelly earthy aftertaste with roasty chocolatey and resiny perfumy minty notes. Weird, but kind of nice even so. Strange IPA, though. (0.33l bottle, from JR Takashimaya, Nagoya Station.)

jonno (2287) - JAPAN - JAN 20, 2012
Soft, edge less IPA that has an every man quality to it. Well rounded and pretty well made, just a bit lifeless. Soft citrus, toffee and a dryish finish. Not too interesting but i wouldn’t say no if they were handing this out again.
