golden amber color. Fairly straight forward with lots of pale malts, a moderate amount of fruitiness, full bodied. Actually not extremely outstanding or impressive but very enjoyable and well made. Actually one of the better beers from these guys. Drinks like 6.5 or 7%, but at 8.5% it is very deceiving. Good.

Draft at ibrew Ginza. Amber colour, small bubbly off-white head. Aroma is lots of malt, bit of spice and lots of fruit, pineapple, touch tropical lots of citrus grapefruit. Some yeastiness. Taste crisp and bit of prickle. Bit grapefruit and more fruit, and a dose of malt. Nice bitter finish. Solid but not mind-blowing.

Really soft wafts of grapefruit and orange peel - really have to pull for them though. Big bitterness, not nuanced, just bitter. Solid caramel/toffee flavours to keep in check. Very straight forward and when compared to the other more playful DIPA we were drinking at the time, this came off as very serious, and in effect, a little tired and staid. Decent but nothing to get all ’wikitawak’ over.
