Marc (486) - Yokosuka, - APR 8, 2010
Probably the most balanced ipa in japan. Resiny pine laden nose balanced out with a strong caramel and toasted nuts. Sweet and bitter. Toasty malts and caramel/toffee butt heads with herbal hoppiness. Drys tward the end finisshing with a lingering nuttiness and medicinal hoppiness.

Tap at Marciero Aroma: Orange, marmalade, dried orange and orange peel. Palate: Full-bodied. Flavor: Orange, passion fruit, dried fruit Comment: Excellent. World Class. This rivals Baird’s Suruga Bay and Shiga Kogen’s House IPA as the best WIPAs made in Japan.

shoulderbroken (2202) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 20, 2013
Tap at Lambic. Orange colour, big creamy off-white head. Aroma is skunky, cat pee, grapefruit, spiky malt, full on dipa. Taste is similar, lots of grapefruit bitterness, malt hiding behind it, but the bitterness dominates. Nice dipa, more on the citrus side than the malt side. Spiky.

Tovrleaf (22) - - OCT 4, 2012
For being 9% beer, can’t really taste it. Color is deep copper, strong crispy taste that holds long.

EdKing (1983) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
On tap in Thrash Zone, Yokohama. This is a classic double IPA. Colour is clear amber with a thin white head. Nose is big hoppy citrous, with grapefruit, lemon and pine, with nice strong caramel malt backbone. Taste is all of the above. Big bold citrous hop with nice caramel malt, backed up by alcoholic kick.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - DEC 29, 2011
Kocihi sans hommage to the hops! Great artwork by Jay too. Less finessed than the Green Bullet I had just fiinished, this is still extremely enjoyable. Suits the atmosphere of Thrash Zone to a tee. Big citrus and pine. Big body. Teeth rattling finish. Well put together. This could become a cult japanese beer. Lovely amber colour too. Well done Koichi!
