Keg at Harajuku taproom. Pale orange colour with slightly cloudy beige frothy head. Aroma is grapefruit and b.o., lots of bitterness. Taste is less bitter, just a hint of the aroma’s bitterness at the end. Biscuity maltiness and some lemon there too, but overall, not a massive taste. Nice but not mind-blowing.

Suraga Bay with Belgian Yeast. A bit dulled initially, but a nice coating hop blast resides on the tongue after swallowing. Very, very lightly phenolic. I don’t think this yeast is quite up to the style, but certainly an enjoyable aside.
