4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from Smith Street Cellars. Nice balance. Aromas of caramel, citrus, nuts, hints of grass. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can@Home. Malty, bitter and rather typical IPA. Except for the bitterness there’s not much of a hoppy character. Overall a nice beer though.

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.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Tart citrus bitterness. Malt is caramel but more complex than that. This is interesting and nice.
