On tap, Imbibe, Kitchener. Yellow, medium creamy white head. Strong pine aroma - huge actually, appreciated! Taste is very dry and very bitter - as advertised! medium body holds it together well but this one is all dry piney hops - huge from start to very long bitter finish. Maybe a bit one dimensional, but it is a dimension I like! Well done folks, and thanks to Imbibe for having this on tap in KW.

Pine, orange, mango, peach on the nose - high quality. Pours a cloudy maple-orange with large, pillowy and clingy head. Taste is fruity hops, dry citrus, pine, with grainy malt. Finish is long and pleasantly bitter with grapefruit peel. Well balanced, but a bit too heavy for sessioning. Great beer all-around.

Tall boy can. Murky deep yellow body and for mine, lots of sediment.
Aroma to die for. Turned away for a second after pouring it, and the citrus and pine-y hops caught my nose when coming back.
Mouth is weaker than aroma, still sweet malts with hoppy after bite but mild.Some wildness infused in the fruitiness. But very drinkable. Don’t think could do more than 2 in a sitting.

Can from Tanakaya. Nice pine aroma, quite full on. Taste is less so. Decent pine bitterness, bit of citrus and light tropical fruit, but the body is a bit lifeless. Maybe this hasn’t made it to Japan in the best condition. Nice still though.

Keg at Bar Hop. Clear amber body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of orange and burnt caramel. Flavour of marmalade and sweet orange. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Soft fizz. A solid IPA but it feels quite sweet and heavy somehow.

Bar Hop 2 rate. Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of juicy fruits and pine. Taste is pretty bitter and a bit harsh but not by much. Fruity hops, piny hops. A moderate sweetness. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is sticky. A nice IPA I would certainly come back to even if it is a bit harsh.
