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.

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

Bygers (1001) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2015
Can 0,33l. Pours a hazy orange gold color with a thick off white head. Intense citrus nose. Delicate flavors of orange and grapefruit. Moderately bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mrjez (86) - Osaka, JAPAN - AUG 3, 2015
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drjoeng (207) - - JUL 21, 2015
7%ABV. IPA 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.

#ONI... WHAT can I say!!?? If there was ever a metaphor for life in Japan....this is it! Cant lie... this beer definitely gets props. It has done alot. Aaaaaaaand even though it may be as inconsistent as sex with your Japanese wife... it is always there...pretty much anywhere... and on the cheap. I have had GREAT ones...I have had SHIT ones... buuuuuuut I always come back. S&M in a can. They have changed the recipe more times than Ive changed my mind about going back home buuuuuuuut #wgaf Drink it. Love it. Love life. Drink it. Hate it. Rage. Repeat. Overall Rating: ALL DAY!

motelpogo (7240) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 15, 2015
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

wlajwl (4688) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Aroma is fruit, tea , mild sweetness and slight funk. The flavor is fruit, hops, malts, rice funk and a bitter/dry/slightly tangy finish.
