MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This India Pale Ale’s leafy hops carry citrus undertones and plenty of bitterness which are accompanied by slick honeyed malts.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the clear bronzed golden.
-The bitterness is surprisingly of higher impact than the hop aroma.
-The mouthfeel is lean (not exactly dry, but not sweet either) and drinkability very high.
-Carbonation is prickly, but not harshly so.
-The citrusy undertones are orange-like at times.

Can.

Caterwaul (51) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Shared with DrSilverworm. Cloudy burnt orange body with a creamy head. Creamy and perfumey. Floral. Sweet... almost tea-like. Smooth. A little sticky. Medium body. I don’t mind this.

jonnyguns (1102) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2013
Can from mane liquor. Pours a deep bright orange with a small white head. Aromas of grapefruit, some tropical fruits and pine. Taste is really quite sweet, sticky tropical fruits with some grapefruit and malt backbone. I don't mind sweet ipa's, quite nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange pour from can at Yusho in Logan square. White thin head. Heavier than a lager but similar. Slightly bitter, floral and citrus notes. Not bad. Unique

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2014 Can from Yamaya. Clear golden colour,small white head. Aroma has lots of hops, with fruit and pine. Same with the flavour, some reisin and a bitter finish. Fantastic for the price!

Marstonlad (559) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Can at WilliamK, Helsinki. Pours clear golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is prominently fruity with an exotic touch, also some pine. Taste is dry and medium bitter, very fresh and crisp. Hoppiness carries the taste to its conclusion fairly quickly and the exotic notes the aroma suggested do not feature much; the taste displays grass and pine. The palate is medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Not the richest IPA around but definitely very decent. Interesting to try a Japanese IPA.

olio (7426) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2014
350 ml can.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma is hoppy, some sweet apricot and orange notes, caramel malts and resin also. Flavor of resinous and oily hops, hay, caramel malts and faint gooseberries. Sweet sticky palate, lingering fruity finish. Nice hoppy brew.
