Just found this gem in my trip to Tokyo today. Nice color, deep gold, light amber with a foamy off-white head. Toasty malts and grapefruit in the nose. A sweet cookie dough malt with piney hops, nice! Smooth feel, not too much carbonation, for a Japanese made canned beer, this is quite good!

Can from Koht. Oh dear, bbe 30.10.2014. Should have checked the can before buying it. Pours amber with a thick white head. Mostly herbal notes, malt and earthy notes. Flavor has caramel malty sweetness and mild herbal notes. Not much hops here anymore. Rerate needed.

Burnt orange with a stark white head. Floral and some citrus hops on the nose, additionally some honey and sweet malts. Some orange and honey flavours in here, beautifully constructed malt back bone - a very well balanced beer. Soft finish with a gentle carbonation.

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

mrjez (115) - 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.

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.
