TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2012
Can from World Beers. Hazy gold pour with a lot of sediment at the finish. Short white head with decent retention and leaving moderate lace. Nose is balanced: citrus and malty light fruits – very pleasant. Medium-heavy body and moderate carbonation. Oranges, apricots, tea, biscuit and pine. It has characteristics of some of my favorite IPAs, but in small amounts. Finish is quite bitter, which may be a function of age or distance or storage conditions. Surprisingly good and well-balanced. If I could get this at a decent price it would be in regular rotation.

Can from Shop in World of Porters, Yokohama. Clear golden colour with slim white head. Juicy hoppy fruity aroma. Great citrus hoppy bitter taste, grapefruit, pineapple. Medium body, moderate carbonation, nice spicy hoppy bitter finish. Really glad I put a couple of these in my suitcase!

At Verna's. Smells of toasted cereal/grain, sweet florals. Tastes of semi-sweet blueberry in a slightly chemical way, almost cough syrup-ish.

From 35ml can bought at Daiei Supermarket in Oita. Surprisingly good, well-balanced IPA. Clear pale yellow colour with longish-lasting beige head. Aroma of lemony hops, tangerine, sweet spices. Soft on the palate with medium carbonation. Good balance of hoppiness, bitterness and sweet elements. Flavours of cloves, bitter orange, apricot. Very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A solid, drinkable West-Coast style IPA. Floral aromas, pleasant bitterness, and a smooth, if thin, body. One of the better IPAs in Japan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hens (633) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - MAY 6, 2015
0.35L can. Clear golden body with fat white top, disappears little, but remaining foam stays. Boiled vegetable and sour milk aroma. Caramellic start, vegetable, lemon peel, corn, grass flavors. Quite standard IPA. Nothing to missed and nothing interesting inserted. Drinkable.

jc1762 (154) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 4, 2015
Poured into a SA Perfect Pint showing caramel honey golden with half a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows a lot of steel tank notes and some floral hops with hints of tropical fruit and slight cannabis. The palate is a clean maltiness balanced by the floral hops, a mid palate of steel tank, but a somewhat soft sharp IPA bitterness. Easy to approach and drink, surprisingly a pretty good IPA by a Japanese brewery. gm

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.

요-호 브루어리 - 아우니 IPA 7% ABV 밝고 명쾌한 IPA. 좋은 벨런스, 아로마, 신맛이 배제된 감귤류의 단맛, 약한 홉, 프루티한 질감. 무난히 IPA 세계의 마수로 빠져들기 좋은 입문용 IPA

From a 33 cl can. Pours a hazy orange gold with a thick off white head. Intense citrus nose. Delicate flavors of orange and grapefruit. Moderately bitter finish.
