GenkiGonzo (485) - Kyoto, - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle. Great colour and nose. After taste accentuates the initial burst of hoppy and mildly fruity goodness.

330ml bottle from Shinanoya. Poured into a tulip pint. Golden caramel color with a modest soapy off-white head. Fairly good lacing throughout. Pine needles, resin, biscuit and grain on the nose. Medium body, bitter on the palate with a touch malty sweetness. Slightly sticky texture but has some tea-like texture that peeks out as it warms up. Average carbonation with a lasting bitter finish.

Pours a hazy amber colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, caramel, grass, citrus and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a moderate hoppy finish.

Tim Webb (257) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2015
33 cl bottle at Owls Brew in Singapore. Allowing for the fact that this had travelled some, I was impressed by the direct hop, firm malt base and layered nature of what appeared to be a serious beer.

minihame2 (246) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 26, 2015
Clear, copper coloured body with a tan head. Nice, hoppy aroma with grass and citrus notes. Taste is not very prominent, only slight bitterness towards the end. Watery mouthfeel, fairl low carbonation. On the lower end of the IPA spectrum.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
Draught at Bungalow in Kyoto.
Pours is orange with a small white head. Smells of biscuit. Tastes extremely bitter with some juicy grapefruit notes. Unbalanced yet enjoyable.

6% ABV. IPA Light tan head. Pours thick and hangs around a good long time. Sweet malty nose. "Beery" Mouth is malty and full of bitter hops. Light on the aromatics. As it turns out, not much to write home about. Itís a beer. Itís a competently brewed beer. It has clean flavors. But it really is too pedestrian for me. Boring lah. I suppose if you were going to have some awesome yakitori and didnít want to be distracted, then this could provide a very sound foundation for an evening of snack food and karaoke.

borre_m (434) - NORWAY - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a cloudy amber. Aroma has pine and some malts. Taste is not too heavily hopped, still a good amount og pine and grass. Balancing with malts. a full body. I really like it.

TBone (13365) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Tap at Craft Heads, Tokyo. Hazy amber color, medtium-sized off-white head. Grapefruity, a bit fruity-caramelly aroma. Medium-bodied. Dry woody flavor with late bitterness. A bit fruity. Balanced. Different.
