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.

Bitter, bitter, and more bitter. A great IPA that you can pickup on the cheap, anywhere from conbini to train stations. Top-notch!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the can.
L: a pale copper with a nice finger of head, decent lacing.
S: a good whiff of pine, resin, some underlying grapefruit.
T: a bitter pine start that lingers throughout, or even gains momentum, a bready malt and touch of citrus.
F: nice carbonation on the tongue, maybe a bit cloying with the bitter hops, slightly oily.
O: a little unbalanced but flavourful IPA. A killer choice for this price range in Japan, and solidly consistent these days.

A very nice Japanese beer. My favourite beer in Japan. A nice golden colour. Smooth taste and a bit velvety.

Poured out of the can a rich amber gold. 14°SRM
Pine in the nose. Grass.
Light palate. Lightly sweet malts with biscuit and cotton candy flavors. Herbaceous finish with a lemon peel bright bitterness that is the perfect thing for happy-making in hophead land.
Goes on favorites list.

canned, park bench session with mowbeer. decent grapefruit aroma, lightly honeyed; plenty of honeyed sweetness and caramel, somewhat subdued citric character, perhaps not the freshest but enough lingering bitterness to balance it out okay
