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.

olsvammel (5995) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2014
Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2014. Hoppy smell with grapefruit and caramel. Creamy and hoppy taste with some candy and soap. Nice, a bit aged, but nice.

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

Beer5000 (5905) - 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.

jeremyBrews (2) - Chiba-shi, JAPAN - OCT 16, 2014 does not count
An extremely sessionable IPA. Pretty much the definition of drinkable IPA, at least in the sense that it’s kind of a cross between IPA and Pale Ale, which is an extremely Japanese craft beer thing to do (bring all malt and hop notes down). Aroma is flowery, head is decent, balance is solid.

mrmartin (780) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Hazy orange pour with medium off-white head. Nose is weak and malt forward. Notes of Pine, Citrus tempered by a sweeter maltier back. Watery body Bitter finish. Not bad. Would session if it was cheap and widely available. Definitely not the top of the class but pleasant enough
