2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A light colored IPA. It’s aroma is dominated by the hops. Bodied, pronounced flavor that is lost early in their high hopping recipe.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33 l bottle from Tokyu Food Garden, Tokyo. Golden clear colour with a nice head. Aroma is hoppy. Taste has that too - bitter hops, no citrus aromas here. Maybe a bit more ABV to make this more balanced for my tastes.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle from trade with jinroh. Many thanks! Pours hazy amber with floaters, big foamy white head. Aroma is light orange, skunky hops. Taste is grainy, skunky, oxidisation.. lacks hop clarity, off-flavours. Not great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from shop in World of Porters, Yokohama. Clear gold with frothy white head, visibly carbonated. Aroma floral hops, grass, bread, malt. Hoppy bitter taste, quite herbal/spicy, quite light, highly carbonated. Perhaps more pale ale than IPA, but pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
장트갈렌 브루-요코하마 XPA, 6% ABV 케스케이드 홉의 맛이 주를 이루는 엑스트라페일 폼이 크리미 하다는 착각을 하게하지만 실은 매우 드라이한 맥주.전에 서해안 스타일이라 불리우던 드라이한IPA 비여과 특유의 비릿한 내음이 걷히면 드러나는 마일드한 곡물 맛. 건포도 류나 웻한치즈,기름& 튀김음식과 좋은 매치가 될듯. 출시이후 처음 마셔봤지만 여전히 미니멀하고 세련된 센스의 IPA.라벨도 잘 잡았다. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Great Japan Beer Fest in Yokohama 2014. Nice golden orange color with a modest eggshell head. Resiny nose with aromas of grapefruit and citrus present. A little tart on the palate at first, then a bitter wave rolls in. Not much malt taste or balance for that matter. Slightly astringent finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Pours nice golden amber, bit hazy, nice foam. Aroma has some fresh cut grass, bit of fresh baked bread, green leaves. Taste is quite herbal, citrusy and hoppy, even somewhat unbalanced as there are lots of hops for a relatively weak body. Closing to a session IPA or just nice and hoppy pale ale rather than usual IPA. Bit skunky hops, lingering bitterness. Still a good and refreshing beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2015 Clear, copper colour and a small white head. Hoppy aroma, grass and leaves. Taste is kind of mild but it has some of the typical IPA bitterness. Mouthfeel is slick with some tinglyness due to the carbonation. As an IPA, not impressive but overall it’s a decent beer.
