Westkyoto77 (531) - Kyoto, - JUN 23, 2014
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.

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

shoulderbroken (2114) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 11, 2013
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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2188) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 7, 2013
I had wanted to try this on tap at Craft Beer Base’s IPA event in Osaka but they never got around to that keg >_< So I was happy to grab a taste at El Nubichinom in Yokohama. It is a great looking IPA with a west coast aroma profile of pine & citrus. Wow, it was quite bitter for a Japanese IPA. An astringeant mouth-puckering beer, not so balanced with mostly pine coming through. Decent on a hot day though.
