IslandHaole (1228) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - NOV 4, 2010
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 at my parents. Tropical fruit and citrus notes. Dry bitter finish. Refreshing. Medium carbonation. Not bad.

slowrunner77 (10146) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2016
An ok IPA overpriced at $5.99 in the states. Grassy herbal pine aroma. Flavor is balanced with sweet and bready malts.

Ritzn (461) - Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2016
Clear amber/copper with little beige head. Aroma is apricots and lots of hoppy grassy stuff. Only some resin. Taste is fruity sweet with some resiny bitterness. Good mouthfeel. Heavier than water but not oily/undrinkable. Medium/full body. Some fusels though. More of resin in the finish. Overall nice!

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2016
From can it’s lightly hazed honey amber with a short head. Hoppy aroma is orange, herbs, spice mix, perfume, tamarind, and some nutty amaretto effect that seems malt-derived. Medium-bodied, sweet and bitter with somewhat low carbonation. I like the orange-apricot effects, but I get a small dose of butterscotch or toffee candy that I don’t like so much.

larsniclas (6695) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2016
Canned at Noble House Deep golden with a large, white head. Fruity and resinous in both aroma and flavour. Medium to high bitterness.

Idiosynkrasie (6419) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2016
350ml can. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Piney, fruity, minimally floral, hoppy aroma, notes of melon, mandarine, hints of pineapple and lychee, caramel malty background. Taste is initially slightly sweet caramel malty, fruity, notes of melon, a touch of lychee, later more and more bitter hoppy, slightly grassy and minimally floral, asymptotically tending towards mineral mineral; soft palate. An IPA with real development of taste over time and palatal regions.

SlovakSniper (5091) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2016
Liquide or et mousse qui tente, en vain, de s’accrocher. Arômes de malts fripés et de pamplemousse, lointaine épinette. Saveurs ridées, savonneuses, fruitées, boisées, correctes sans plus. Une bouche huileuse et pétillante. Une finale florale et terreuse. Je soupçonne une canette qui a de l’âge. Ceci dit, pas si mauvais.

colui72 (662) - HONG KONG - JUL 4, 2016
Very typical IPA from Japan. Pours hazy golden, with a medium white head. Hoppy aroma of citrus. Taste is grapefruit and malts, very well balanced by a strong hoppy character. Lovely and refreshing.

Stuu666 (10620) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 26, 2016
Can at salthorse. Pours hazy pale orange, nose is floral, herbal, light citrus, taste is sweet, pithy orange, light caramel.

monk191 (1752) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 23, 2016
A very nice Japanese take on the IPA. Pours a bright orange with a tan head. Smells of orange creme and sweet rice. Taste is very smooth and sweet, with sweet rice, cream, citrus and some hops to balance at the end. Had in the can at Beer Bridge in Bangkok.
