Pretty tasty. Definitely looks like pee! Flavor is hops all over the place from start to a slightly astringent finish. Pretty tasty all around. Very fresh flavors dominate.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 Pours a hazy orange/yellow with a sticky white head. Aroma is very hoppy, citrus all over the place with honey and soft fruit. Tastes hoppy, bright and fresh. There is an earthy (almost celery like) mid palate. Honey and soft fruit and loads of grapefruit. Mouth feel is almost chewy... But in a good way. Nice IPA!

Initial smell is that of an old book....Strange thats not the first time Ive used that for an IPA. Maybe a slight chemical or phenol smell. Very nice coppery color, big ass two finger head. Pretty nice floral bitter taste, with some spice thrown in. The Amarillo hops get me every time...I should know by now to expect the old book and soap smell. Pretty honest IPA.....not bad.

Faint cloudy to the golden - light laced head. Very light aroma considering the assalt that follows. I’m an Amarillo sucker so while I love the almost insane orange pith flavour and dirty cracked pepper bitterness I just feel that it’s a bit out of whack. Bounces around like a seismograph on a pogo stick.

Tap at MacGloughlin’s in Kyoto.
Bright, frosty-looking yellow--really looks like snow floating in p... Great head too. Super hoppy, as expected, yet also a very smooth body and rich, fresh maltiness. Very nice and easy to drink lots of.
