MrDick (371) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 30, 2016
On tap at Two Dogs Taproom. Pours a bit hazy. It was described as a "West meets East IPA" and it's pretty straight on. Citrus, hop overload, malt backbone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hawthorne00 (3542) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2016
Tap. Hazy amber with a modest white head. Pine and kumquat aroma. Med bodied, moderate carbonation. Slightly toasty bread, vague citrus, maybe too much pine. Dry and bitter (a little over the top with that too) at the end.

HonusWagner (2127) - Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2016
A pretty plain but still tasty Japanese IPA. It’s a little hoppy and has lingering cereal malt graininess that is pleasant. I’d drink it again at its reasonable price.

visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 6, 2016
33cl bottle at Enza Café, Kanbayashi (just outside the snow monkey park). Pours hazy orange to amber without much head to speak of. Fruity aroma with citrus, tropical fruits, pine and notes of malt and herbs. Moderate to medium sweet with nice hoppy flavours and a notable, but balanced bitterness. Medium body with fairly average carbonation. Quite delicious and a perfect refreshment after hours of monkey watching.

złote zmętnione, skromna ale trwała piana ładnie zdobi szkło;
marakuja, cytrusy;
ciało niskie, nisko nasycone, finisz goryczkowy, ściągająca ziemistość;
żywica, cytrusy, wyraźna grejpfrutowo-żywiczna goryczka, długa w przyjemny sposób;
bardzo dobre.

Hop_Hedonist (475) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2016 I’m pleasantly surprised - didn’t know this one at all - a superb west coast style IPA - packed with hoppy flavour and a niiiiiice bitter twang - will go back for more at this cool, off-the-beaten-track, pan-Asian (mostly Japanese-inspired) restaurant in Singapore (The East Bureau - rooftop of the Marina Square shopping mall) - also had Hitachino Nest which was another surprise find.
