maekchu (1762) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle. Gift from Neko-chan. Big malty nose, some peach, some hop. Copper. Sweet malt initial; light hops and mineral notes make for a slightly hard mid; final has mild bitterness that fades pretty quickly. Thin (a bit watery). Some unusual flavors. An okay IPA. But not really as good as most.
