mrjez (479) - Osaka, JAPAN - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle. Hazy orange-copper pour with next to no head. Aroma of pine sap, honey, caramel, citrus, a little dirty, some brown-ale type chocolate, complex and better after about five minutes. Taste is sweet caramel, grapefruit, pine, and a late bitter push. Kinda full mouth yet low flavour density for a IIPA, if that makes sense, moderate bitterness, a tad chewy and tongue-coating. Feels muddled and old-school, was more exciting once upon a time.

Amber w touch of haze . Has a lot of caramel malts, rich grapefruit hop, lots of alcohol. Old school, quite strong, just infinitely chewy.

Had to login and actually rate this place cuz it’s being misrepresented by great people with great intentions that don’t know that this place is an AMERICAN craft beer place modified to the Japanese tastes. In a word, this place is honest. A few more words that come to mind are inventive, adventurous, fearless. Really amazingly great place from the perspective of a guy who has enjoyed every American craft brewery currently enjoyed as the so-called ’Best’.

wchesser (1920) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Bottle from kansai-thanks! Copper orange, minimal head. Nose is almost like a light barleywine, lots of caramel and toffee malts, some orange citrus. Taste follows, malt forward, lightly sweet, with some citrus pith bitterness. Smooth for the ABV and clean.

Cantabrian (990) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 21, 2016
This is proper beer. Bottle from a family mart - type of place. Nice and copper, with a rather unfulfilling head, lovely aroma of honey, syrup, dried stone fruits and the fruity hops. Flavour goes along the same way. It feels like a rather old double IPA, very mellow and syrupy. Thick on the palate, this is my choice from now on for this selection near my hotel.

BuckeyeBoy (6154) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Have had this a few times from bottle and draft. Pours out an amber copper topped with a sand head. Nose is light fruit some pine hops and a nice caramel malty sweetness. Taste is more of the fruity citrus hops and a well balanced malt bill.

jc1762 (852) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Poured into a plastic cup on the Shinkansen showing dark caramel brown with almost no filtration or head, sparse white foam on rims. The nose shows a sweet tea like nose with light hints of malt and not much else. The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavors of sweet earl grey and malt. Barely any bitterness. Once again another British style IIPA that probably didn’t need to be made.

Cloudy copper appearance. Pleasant bitterness. Plenty of malt taste. Does not have a strong taste of alcohol despite being 9%. A pleasant beer to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy copper. Deep malts up front, nice hop bite finishes more like a 7% than a 9. Great balance here.
