Bottle. Great colour and nose. After taste accentuates the initial burst of hoppy and mildly fruity goodness.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a shaker showing light filtration, sparse foam and a dry orangish-brown.
The aroma shows a very light citric orange.
The flavor shows a lot of the same with a bitterness that is heavily softened out by the orange flavors. Light bodied and heavily carbonated, this is very fruit forward forward, simple and easy drinking IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
