Capa (2542) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2009 Light copper with some amber. Aroma has some light bitterness, some pine, earth, and slightly sweet malts. Bitterness hits a lot harder in the flavor. Some citrus and pine, light sweet malt backbone. Lemon comes through just barely. Bitter finish with a slight oiliness. Not all that complex, but nice. Crisp, medium body, Nice and bitter for a Japanese IPA but a little lacking in overall flavor. I’d buy it again, though. (Just bought a can of this last night for 140 yen. That’s cheaper than some of the crappy pale lagers available in Japan. Unbeatable for that price)

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2008
A Mes rate: Can at GBBF thanks very muchly to Rob Beer.
An odd but attractive green gold colour with a very good white head and excellent condition. Good malt, good hops and very well balanced. Slightly raw in the flavour. A little too much alcohol but the really pleasing malt saves the day. A U.S. like IPA hoppy finish with eventual thick malt. Great length. A damn good canned beer.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2008
Can at GBBF with a glass of cheese and a plate of beer, its all gone wrong. Alround rating: Biscuity malts, richer malts too, grassy and intencly bitter, an interesting and different ipa.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2010
Light orange colored, huge yellow head. Citrus-flowery hopped aroma with thin pine, good ipa aroma for me. Medium bodied. Flavor is more fruity in start, lemon also here. Aftertaste dries with pine and flowers, grassy note lasts.

marcus (8305) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Can from Healthy Spirits. Pours light amber with a thick off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a solid caramel malt flavor with a bitter citrus finish. Refreshing and drinkable, but a little too harsh.

larsga (6943) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2012
Big offwhite head. Clear deep golden body. Deep tropical fruit and citrus aroma with oily grassy notes. Dry-sweet tropical fruit and resin taste with citrus notes. Fullish body. Mild, slightly hot mouthfeel. Very clean flavour. Dryish dusty tropical fruit aftertaste with resiny grassy spicy notes. Spicy bitter flavour lingers. Very nice. Bold, yet highly drinkable. (0.35l can from Naito-san.)

JPDurden24 (1664) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2012
At FWIBF, Nice golden pour with a white head. I had never had this brewery’s beer before the festival and I definitely want more. All were enjoyable. This was a nice and spicy hopped IPA and damn good.

evergreen0199 (2667) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2012
Can bought in a tourist shop in Nasu, Tochigi, Japan. I consumed a few of these with my wifes delightful friends at a resort in the mountains in Nasu. An amber coloured pour with a small white head on top. Hoppy, citrus fruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus/tropical fruit, malty and bitter. Nice IPA.
