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

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. It’s a beer. It’s 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 didn’t want to be distracted, then this could provide a very sound foundation for an evening of snack food and karaoke.

borre_m (272) - 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.

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.

Thisis12ptfont (838) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - APR 11, 2014
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.

Westkyoto77 (522) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 17, 2014
Draught at Japonica. Hazy dark orange, medium head. Grassy, slightly spicy nose. Medium to light body. Nice flavours of grapefruit, treacle. Mild bitterness, but had a good fresh tang.

dfearnley (965) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
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.

Ferris (4160) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
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!

KansaiBeerLvrs (2048) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 19, 2013
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.
