As an IPA this is below average but it’s good to see a decent beer from Japan. Light aromas of pineapple and citrus as well as light flavors of citrus. Slight bitterness.

350ml can @ Cardinal. Unclear orange body with a medium sized off-white head. Mild aroma of matured fruit and pale malt. Flavor is sweet pale malt, hint of caramel, fruity, ripe fruit and moderate bitterness. Quite plain and straightforward, nothing especially going on here, but no off flavors either. Medium body and moderate aftertaste. A rather plain and slightly sweet beer that might be more of a pale ale than IPA.

susanamayer (211) - Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2014
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

An extremely sessionable IPA. Pretty much the definition of drinkable IPA, at least in the sense that it’s kind of a cross between IPA and Pale Ale, which is an extremely Japanese craft beer thing to do (bring all malt and hop notes down). Aroma is flowery, head is decent, balance is solid.

Hazy orange pour with medium off-white head. Nose is weak and malt forward. Notes of Pine, Citrus tempered by a sweeter maltier back. Watery body Bitter finish. Not bad. Would session if it was cheap and widely available. Definitely not the top of the class but pleasant enough

Thank you to my brother Chris for this thoughtful gift. Pours a very hazy golden in color with a medium, lingering white head. The aroma is more on the subtle side. It consists of apricot, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, and light pine. The taste is mildly bitter up front which than extends in some sweetness. Its a bit tangy as well. It is heavier on grapefruit that is balanced with pineapple. There is plenty of floral hops in here, as well as mango and lemon. The aftertaste is a mild grapefruit, but it does last quite awhile. Its light to medium in body, with a somewhat sticky texture, with above average carbonation. This one is different than the typical IPA found here in the US. Its is less intense with hops and is focused more towards the citrus aspects. Enjoyable. I think the artwork on these Japanese cans is pretty cool also.

Found this for relatively cheap in my local grocery store, was pleasantly surprised at the refreshing bitterness from a can beer.
