fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Poured hazy golden orange, citrus and floral hops, citrus rind, caramel malts, little wheat.

mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2017
On tap at Ale Industries, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is very herbal and vegetal, with citrus hops and a vegetable-like crunchiness. Flavour is similar, with herbal hoppy bitterness, some vegetal notes, pine and crisp biscuity malt. Very bitter, bordering on abrasive territory. A little too vegetal and unpleasantly bitter. Okay.

wetherel (1888) - Cupertino, California, USA - MAY 26, 2017
Can served at engineering beer bash. Medium grapefruit bitterness. Wonderful strong hoppy aroma. Yellow color. High carbonation makes it seem very dry. Easy to drink. Very good. Probably better on draft.

77ships (10810) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2016
Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Quite hazy orange, solid white head. Nose is mandarin sorbet, pulpy orange juice, real freshly squeezed orange juice pulp. Nose is light yeast, mold mixed with squeezed orange juice pulp, touch sweetish. Medium body. The pulpy orange juice taste & smell make this one fun, not perfect but a fun beer.

Pint in Steins. Quite drinkable really. Easy going, moderately fizzy. Quite flavourful.

biirusaikou (2705) - - MAY 11, 2015
Draught at CBM Koenji. Classic pine/citrus hop bouquet, fairly drinkable but would probably be nicer fresh. More or less another unnecessary average import.

kespecial (255) - - FEB 19, 2015
Pours a cloudy light orange. Smells a little fruity, a little dank. Taste is dominated by dry floral, earthy hops. Not at all bad, but I like my session IPAs with more citrus or pine.

monk191 (2023) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 6, 2014
A solid session beer with a rich golden color. Smells fantastic with notes of pineapple, peach and hops. Taste is somewhat muted. It's well balanced with no bitter after taste, but taste throughout feels diluted. Easy drinker, but forgettable.

beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours a golden copper color with a white head. Hop, citrus, floral and malt aroma. Hop, resin, citrus, floral, biscuit and malt flavors. Unbalanced and a little aggressive bitterness with nothing to back it up. Medium light body and mild carbonation. Citrus, floral and astringent, overly bitter finish.

KyotoLefty (10603) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 11, 2014
UPDATED: APR 27, 2015 Little taster. Grassy, dry malts, some citrus and pine. Crisp, light, refreshing. Quite nice and very drinkable.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5305) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 11, 2014
Thanks for the hook up Albert! Hanshin Seed Event from a bomber. A clear gold, off-white head. Light malts, grassy in the aroma. Sharp carbonation, sandy mouthfeel. Clean green hoppy bitterness. Very bitter, pine all the way tasty but too bitter for me. Lots of flavor for less than 5% ABV though.
