3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Draught at the beer works Akasaka. Had this a few years ago in can and it rocked. On draught it’s sofet, but still full of hops, citrus, floral nores. It doesn’t quite knock it out of the park, and it fades a bit, but it’s a good solid full strength IPA.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber/copper with little beige head. Aroma is apricots and lots of hoppy grassy stuff. Only some resin. Taste is fruity sweet with some resiny bitterness. Good mouthfeel. Heavier than water but not oily/undrinkable. Medium/full body. Some fusels though. More of resin in the finish. Overall nice!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From can it’s lightly hazed honey amber with a short head. Hoppy aroma is orange, herbs, spice mix, perfume, tamarind, and some nutty amaretto effect that seems malt-derived. Medium-bodied, sweet and bitter with somewhat low carbonation. I like the orange-apricot effects, but I get a small dose of butterscotch or toffee candy that I don’t like so much.

350ml can. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Piney, fruity, minimally floral, hoppy aroma, notes of melon, mandarine, hints of pineapple and lychee, caramel malty background. Taste is initially slightly sweet caramel malty, fruity, notes of melon, a touch of lychee, later more and more bitter hoppy, slightly grassy and minimally floral, asymptotically tending towards mineral mineral; soft palate. An IPA with real development of taste over time and palatal regions.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Liquide or et mousse qui tente, en vain, de s’accrocher. Arômes de malts fripés et de pamplemousse, lointaine épinette. Saveurs ridées, savonneuses, fruitées, boisées, correctes sans plus. Une bouche huileuse et pétillante. Une finale florale et terreuse. Je soupçonne une canette qui a de l’âge. Ceci dit, pas si mauvais.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2016 Very typical IPA from Japan. Pours hazy golden, with a medium white head. Hoppy aroma of citrus. Taste is grapefruit and malts, very well balanced by a strong hoppy character. Lovely and refreshing.
