This brew bursts with hop character while still achieving a sublime balance due to a firm, robust malt backbone. It is a cross between an English-style and American-style India Pale Ale that is full-bodied and refreshing all at once.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2015 Rerate: Tap at Naka-meguro taproom. Very malt-foward aroma with some apricot, raisin and prune and light grassy hops in the background. Very malt-foward IPA. Very British in a way. Full-bodied with average carbonation. Fruity and malty finish. Did the recipe change? I dont know...On tap at Nakameguro Taproom. Served in a stemmed tulip. Hazy golden orange color with a nice soapy white head that lasted almost throughout. Big fruity and resiny aroma present on the nose: pineapple, papaya and pine needles. Very well balanced on the palate with a a very hop-forward bitterness that shines through with a a nice sweet malty foundation to hold it up. Creamy mouthfeel with a nice long dry bitter finish. Solid IPA.

Opaque crimson, medium white head. Roasty, citrus and apple on the nose - very interesting. Thick mouthfeel, almost velvety smoothness - roasty, some caramel. Balanced with some noteable bitterness - finishess bitter, smooth and roasty. Delightful.

330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Quite a stinky aroma, some sweetish biscuity malts, but some rough bitterness. Simple light palate, very light for 6%, its a quaffable beer certainly. But its full, and the carbonation is pleasant. More caramelly aroma later as it warms, the stinkiness subsided and the 5 became 6. Dunno why this didnt grab me so much, its a solid beer, but not a great one.
