I thought I was tasting this for the first time and was going to tick it as a 4, then saw that I did that previously. So time to rate. LOVELY nose. Absolutely tropical fruit, but not the dank dirty socks taste that I often get with that nose. Just a medium sweet deliciousness.

Flaska från Alees by mail. En lite trött APA där fruktigheten tonats ned lite. Bra kropp, karamell, smörkakor utan att bli sött, mango, citrus och lite passionsfrukt. Bra balans men lite anonym. Ok.

La domenica a pranzo, la mi moglie, mi aveva fatto un baccalà alla livornese, che era la fine del mondo. così verso le 6 di sera ho aperto questa APA, per vedere se placavo la sete. Be direi splendida, ha fatto ampiamente la sua funzione, e mi ha lasciato davvero un palato meraviglioso...

Weird Beard was on my list of beers to try in the UK but I had no chance to try it their. I brought home their decadent stout and it burst out of the can in my bag on the way back so I picked this up for 600 yen at CRAFT BEER BASE.
Coincidentally it is also a NZ hopped beer but this 5.3% beer is a Pale Ale rather than Kirin’s 5.5% "IPA".
Pouring a nice copper gold with a solid head of foam it has a fantastic juicy tropical fruits aroma.
Light bodied with a slick mouthfeel, it’s quite bitter giving some butteriness and astringency with a ton of hops. I get the feeling this may have suffered heat damage in transit.
The hopping is subdued but this 7 month old beer (Batch 155) gives citrus, mango and grapefruit notes.
Alright but I should have tried something of theirs fresh in the UK but I only saw bombers and a few canned beers. Prices were in the 2-3£ range each(4£ possibly?) so Japan’s prices aren’t that bad but hoppy beers need to be fresher.
