Recently discovered this beer, not knowing a quality IPA was available from the Lawson stores in Japan. Golden amber colour, high alcohol content but well hidden. Worth sipping slowly. Will seek it out again.

Can at Osaka hanami. pours pale amber with white frothy head. Big american hop aroma and bitterness with solid malt behind it and some malt sweetness. This is a fine example of an america style IPA and I’m impressed it so good for a beer so readily available in japan.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml can from Masuyo’s in Tokyo. Poured into a shaker half pint. Beautiful rich copper color with a modest white head. Pine needles, tree sap, dark honey aromas present. A slight sweet malt flavor peeks out only to be squashed immediately by a tsunami of bitterness on the palate that drags the beer down as you swallow. A little too overwhelmingly bitter.
