3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,35L can, BB 20.04.2014. Pours clear golden-amber with nice white head. The head stays for some moments. The aroma is rather weak sourness, pine, and fruits. Taste: is malt, caramel, sweet, pine, slightly metallic, and sour. Finish has some lingering grapefruit bitter kick and alcohol burn with some interesting sour notes. Overall: goes down rather well, but not really exciting.

Slightly hazy golden amber, white head. Hopy-piney nose, malts and sweetness in the background. Taste is hops, slight malt, grapefruit notes. Finish is dry, piney bitter hoppy. Lingering bitterness so herbal-piney that it becomes almost medicinal. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
7% Can on sale at Lawson’s 20 yen off so just 260 yen! A great deal for Japan. This beer has the classic clear copper-gold color I like in an IPA. Served in my Mikkeller 0.2L wine type glass. Nice solid hop bouquet that goes back & forth between tropical fruits & pine/resin notes-quite good. Full slick mouthfeel with a sharp bitter hop bite, slightly puckering in the mouth. My overall feel is kind of a bitter pith or rind kind of taste, citrusy pith lingers in the aftertaste. Pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
There is a refreshing citrus-based fruity taste to this ipa. The hoppy aftertaste is strong, resulting in an almost bitter/sour flavour that lingers on the tongue. I really like this ale, but my choices are limited due to living in a small town in Japan.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Resinous smell, low sweetness, resinous flavor, it didn’t make the journey overseas well as it lacks that essential freshness and punch.
