3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is herby hops, barley, earthy, resin and caramel. Appearance is a deep copper with no foam and nice lacing. Taste is pronounced bitterness with a very earthy, dry, hoppy resin. Malty backbone comes through with roasted caramel, biscuit and hinted molasses. Overall, very good IPA with bitter hops and noticeable booze. A rating.

Draft to pint glass
Fruit and grapefruit with a little honey sweetness. Sludgy orangish brown with a thin cream head because it's unfiltered. Mild hoppiness for an IPA, but pleasant nonetheless.

Daft - Mild grapefruit and sweet pale malt. Cloudy orange with creamy beige head. Mild grapefruit and resin. Very drinkable and a mellow IPA. If only all Itzakaya’s served this I would be happy.

Nice citrus hop nose, lime. Bitter juicy grapefruit flavor, decent crisp, hoppy finish. One of the smoothest and enjoyable Japanese IPA, kampai!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Bakujun. A citrusy hop floral aroma on a golden orange body. The taste is sweet & fruity with a pine bitter kick mid-mouth before mellowing back out into a semi-spicy fruitiness. A really nice solid IPA.

Tried this at Ant n Bee in Tokyo. A very decent IPA with a very hoppy flavor and cloudy, darker colour.
