jmgreenuk (5606) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 21, 2015
Can at Brew (Asiatique), Bangkok. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head and a little broken lace. The aroma is big fruity citrus hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a grass nettle hop, light toothpaste bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied witn average carbonation. A big hopfest for sure, but it seems to hang together quite well.

MadizTyyr (6) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 10, 2014 does not count
The face on the can laughing at you tells the story very well - decent bitter hoppy IPA with a strong hazelnut aftertaste. Straightforward.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Now this is a first for me - a canned IPA from Japan. It has a light amber body, a bit hazed, with a slender bubbly head. The aroma is light caramel along with some earthy/herbal/grassy scents. The flavor begins with an earthy bitterness that remains through the finish. The malt is there as soft caramel, and dry grassy and herbal tastes add to the flavor. Dry and bitter is the finish. Pretty decent.

Nice looking can @ Black Swan. Buttery, sweet, fruity and alcoholic. Not refreshing enough.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Can. Had this on numerous occasions since it was available at many grocery stores. Pour is orange with a white head. Citrus hops aroma and some biscuit. Flavour was well rounded with a fair amount of hoppiness. Didn’t realize the ABV was up at 7%. 2014-10-05

Beer4000 (4978) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2014
350ml can @ Cardinal. Unclear orange body with a medium sized off-white head. Mild aroma of matured fruit and pale malt. Flavor is sweet pale malt, hint of caramel, fruity, ripe fruit and moderate bitterness. Quite plain and straightforward, nothing especially going on here, but no off flavors either. Medium body and moderate aftertaste. A rather plain and slightly sweet beer that might be more of a pale ale than IPA.
