Draught at Bungalow. Bright and fresh looking, smart creamy head. Aromas of citrus and pineapple. Fruity, but not a huge amount of hop punch. Good stuff if you're in the mood for fruit. Caramel notes. Pretty good.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2015 Re-rate: 330ml bottle from Atsushi. Poured into a shaker pint. Hasy golden color with a medium soapy head. Nice lacing throughout. Big aromas of passion fruit, pineapple and resiny hops. Creamy mouthfeel with a light body and bitter on the palate. Really nice bitterness. Tastes more of the same with some arugula and banana as well. Great bitter and peppery finish that lingers. This is a great beer from Minoh.
330ml bottle from Deguchiya in Naka-Meguro. Poured into a stemmed English tulip. Hazy marmalade orange color with a huge soapy eggshell white head. Bright aromas of pineapple, mango and papaya with slight piney notes. Very fruity and refreshing with a creamy mouthfeel. Sharply bitter on the palate. Excellent summery IPA.

Gentle pineapple aroma. Crispy mango, peach, apricot, mild hoppy finish. Light and delicate tasty IPA, can feel a feminine touch in the brewing :)

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2015 Bottle from Yamaoka. Pale, golden colour with small white head. Aroma is hops and citrus. Grapefruit taste with hops, light and crisp IPA.
Draught at Bungalow (2015/03/01) Aroma is still full of citrus hops, butwith a massive hit of fresh passion fruit. Flavour is dominated by passion fruit, mango and sweet orange. Indescribably better on tap.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Shibuya Beer Terminal Festival. Golden amber colour, creamy off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, resinous, cat pee, nice, tropical fruity background. Taste is bit smoother, quite soft, decent citrus, some funkiness, touch of cream and bit of dust. Quite strange. But herbal and quite sharp. Further down becomes more fruity. Nice spicy maltiness too. Quite different.
