3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a coppery orange, bordering on amber with a nice thick and dense off-white head. Immediate malt based aromas of munich and medium caramel malts are followed by a very familiar grapefruit and orange citrus aroma, slightly floral background. Tastes caramel-sweet and toasty, with a slight nod to irish red ale yet also a bit of malt esters like a lot of German ales. The hops are simple and straightforward and supply a balanced bitterness. Body comes across on the heavier side for an IPA. A filling beer and the alcohol sneaks up on you. The cause is also a good thing.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the Great Japan Beer Festival in Osaka (7/13/2013). Big citrus, grapefruit mostly, nose. Mild citrus and solid malty flavors. Weak, watery body. Okay, I guess. But not really so impressive.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the GJBF Osaka. Classic kind of copper gold color to this IPA, the aroma is kind of pine, mild funk, citrus-a really floral bouquet. Interesting stuff, very clean taste with mostly a biting bitterness. A top quality though slightly one dimensional IPA (the only American PA on tap at the fest), very bitter. I really like the aroma though the flavor isnít as complex. Solidly made beer, well done but not my style. Well executed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a muddy dark golden-orange body and a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is peachy and piney, with some grassy hints and notes of bready malts. The flavor goes in the same direction, with a nice bitterness to support the malts. A nice fruityness chimes in, along with some sweetness and pale malts. Itís full-bodied and quite dry, with pleasant carbonation, and the ABV is barely detectable. Wonderful piney and citrusy finish. Although it looks a bit dull, itís certainly a nice beer. A tad sweet maybe, but I sure like it. 130702
