This quenching brew is crafted in the American west-coast style. It sports a beautiful soft citrus hop aroma which gives way to a round, honeyed-fruit flavor. The finish is crisp and refreshing.

Draught in Harajuku Taproom, Tokyo on 27/6/11. Cloudy browny golden colour. Lemon in the nose with a hint of soil. Hoppy, citrussy taste but thirst quenching at the same time.

US Pint on-tap from Goodbeer Faucets in Sibuya, Tokyo, Japan (¥900):
This one was quite an enjoyable beer from Baird & about on par with the previous two from the brewery that I've tried; their Suruga Bay Imperial IPA was probably marginally better but this one was still a solid effort. The nose was a lot lighter than expected but things came through stronger with the nose with some good sweetness & tropical fruits coming through in the early going alongside touches of citrus, mango & pineapple being the most pronounced of the fruits which helped make this one of the better beers I tried while in Japan.

Very murky copper colour. Thin head. Aroma is a little sweaty. Taste is quite sweet with loads of tropical fruits and a strong bitterness at the tail end.

Cybuch (566) - Muszyna, POLAND - MAY 16, 2017
Piwo pol roku po terminie. W aromacie cytrusy i miod, karmel, ale nie jest najgorszy. Barwa bursztynowa, metne, piana bardzo obfita, szybko dziurawiaca sie, ale pozostaje i ladnie krazkuje. W smaku wytrawne, jest tez troche karmelu i miodu. Goryczka srednia, cytrusowa, przyjemnie zalegajaca. Wysycenie niskie, piwo odgazowalo sie podczas nalewania. Mimo starosci i lekkiego utlenienia piwo wciaz jest dobre, za 2zł po przecenie warto.

Gehbe (455) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - APR 13, 2017
Tap. Hazy deep gold, almost no head. Rather weak hoppy aroma. A slightly hop forward light taste. Light body, medium carb. Good drinkability, quite bland though.

Alusmamuts (2137) - LATVIA - APR 7, 2017
Amber with medium creamy off white head. Slight hops aroma. Medium bitterness with medium sourness and some honey sweetness on the background.

Juks (1061) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 11, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours hazy orange, medium sized off-white head stays. Aroma is citrussy, caramelly, some tangerine, mildly piney. Taste is sweet, caramelly, mildly hoppy, sweet pine, tangerine. Medium bodied, over average carbo. Sweet APA, well drinkable, not bad.

Scipio (1215) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2017
Pours a very hazy orange with a medium, foamy white head. The aroma consists of grapefruit, floral hops, orange, and caramel. Pretty good, although is a little on the subtle side. The taste is dry and slightly bitter. I find that grapefruit stands out here, with compliments of pine, honey, floral hops, bread, mild herbal hops, and hints of biscuit. The aftertaste is a short grapefruit. Medium in body, with a smooth texture, and about average in carbonation. I liked this.

MrTipple (6446) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Grain and cereal malts, bread and caramel, light floral hops, a hint of grapefruit. Hazy gold, small, frothy, white head. Light bitter. Malty sweetness coming up quickly, sweet grain, caramel, more floral bitterness, lively carbonation, medium bodied, bitter finish. Quite a malty APA, then again I did not have the freshest bottle. Bottle from Beer Merchants, Larkfield.

BlackHaddock (7674) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2017
On tap in Brixton Craft on 22nd Jan 2017. Golden orange pour, white head. Citrus fruit leanings in both the nose and taste, semi-sweet mango like flavours: overall not bad at all.
