On tap at Nakameguro Taproom, Tokyo. Nice orangey red colour with yellowish head. Citrus hop aroma with hints of grass. Bitter flavours, citrus. Dry. A good IPA it is.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Med amber color. Soft hops, sweet, citrusy nose. Bitterness is toned down. Very smooth and easy to drink, but not nearly as interesting as the Colombus.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper in color. Much lighter citrus hops in the aroma, more malt and herbs. Medium body. Crisp, nice refreshing hop bitterness, with herbal, and pine, as well. One dimensional but it only has one hop so that was expected. My last of the festival so I can’t say this is a spot on review- I do remember it being pretty good, though.
