Tap at Hachi. Amber coloured, small white head. Aroma is good, light cat pee, grapefruit, nice spiky maltiness. Taste is good solid bitterness, grapefruit and lemon, tiny bit of malty sweetness. Maybe bit of pineapple too and slightly peppery. Finish is nice and dry. I like it.

6%, 45 IBUs, on tap at Mokichi Craft beer in Fujisawa. A great orange gold color with an off-white head. The nose is a fruity, tropical, pine & citrus bouquet. The body is med-full with the taste is quite bitter astringent pine with some citrus in the finish. A solid IPA.

Ferris (3890) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Draft - Sweet piney hops. Clear copper with a thin brown head. Pine and quit a bit of resin, nicely balanced with malts. Very dry and well balanced, just too much resin for my taste.

Nice tropical aromas. Passion fruit flavor, fruity hops, bitter finish. Nice crispy IPA, quite well balanced and definitely on par with some classic Californian brews.

Light Amber color. Moderately aggressive hoppy nose, but the sharpness isn:t quiet there with US hops. Decent backbone and superbly balanced with some passionfruit notes and a touch of grapefruit. Highly quaffable. Next to the Nelson Sav, this is their best IPA.
