3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quite a decent IPA, aroma is a bit soft, pours a attractive orange with a rather quickly vanishing head. Sweetish body, with plenty of citrus hoppy notes to keep you busy. Tends to prove that good beer can go into cans. Noice

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bright gold pour. Aged hops predominate. Not unpleasant, but nothing special that a hundred local IPAs don’t offer either.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear orange yellow. Very bitter and not much else. Moderately dry and so it is fairly drinkable regardless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can bought in a tourist shop in Nasu, Tochigi, Japan. I consumed a few of these with my wifes delightful friends at a resort in the mountains in Nasu. An amber coloured pour with a small white head on top. Hoppy, citrus fruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus/tropical fruit, malty and bitter. Nice IPA.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours hazy deep golden orange with a wispy white head. Nose of orange candy. Taste of orange candy. Sweet. A bit more like a British IPA. This was probably an oldish can, but still... meh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Tart citrus bitterness. Malt is caramel but more complex than that. This is interesting and nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml can. Vibrant bright orange colour with a bit of haziness. Deep dirty white head. Loads of citrus hop aromas that are very nice, as is the flavour and the long lasting hop aftertaste. A great Japanese beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL can. Pours cloudy copper with an amazing tropical fruit aroma, mango specifically. Lots of tropical fruits in the flavour also with a nice mild bitterness. Very nice beer.
