3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Finally tracked a bottle of this down to CBB (last one!) roughly 600 odd yen served in a plastic glass. 8.7% deep gold big head of foam midway between fizz & cream. Big bold hop bouquet pine, fruity/floral & some resin, a bit earthy. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel with a light refreshing palate cleansing finish. Refreshing. The taste is too bitter for my taste: pine, green, resin, a bit herbal/floral and some earthiness. Quite balanced but the finish is quite bitter. Pretty good and I can see why it is beloved by hopheads. As it warms up the malts join the party making it bitter as hell but a bit sweeter and more balanced. Not my cup of tea but well done.

Pours light orange with a big citrus aroma. Very bitter first sip smacks the tongue and finishes super citrusy and piney. Strong notes of hop resin, black pepper and orange lingers for a while in your mouth.
