An IPA hidden behind fruit. Golden/amber hazy appearance with creamy white head. Fruity aroma and taste dominated by the mikan orange. Hoppy in the end. Goooood! wlajwl (6806) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Aroma is citrus/slightly funky orange and slightly perfumed. The flavor is citrus, lemons, malts, mild hops and a tart finish.

On tap at Naka-Meguro taproom in January. Served in a half pint glass. Golden yellow color with a huge soapy head. Nice lacing. Big mikan aroma with yeast on the nose as well. Yeast and mikan taste are balanced well with tastes of lemon zest, grapefruit pith and a slight cinnamon presence as well. Medium carbonation with a medium to light body. Nice dry, crisp finish. Nice balance between the mikan and hops. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 23, 2015
Keg at Naka Meguro. Smells great, nice orange, bit of lemon too, malty, floral. Taste is good too, less citrus, bit of sweetness, light caramel. Nice refreshing bitterness at finish then orange comes.

"interesting brew. i can se why it scores high as a fruit ale...it’s more like a hoppy ipa that happens to have fruit. big hoppy aroma...tropical fruit and citrus peel. flavor has a house aspect and a decent malt backbone, but is still about the large amount of hops and the fruit. they go well together and i ended up liking this one. comprable, kinda sorta, to Aprihop."

Bottle from Yamaoka. Subtle nose of mikan and toffee. Mild carbonation with a creamy palate. The flavours went from fresh and zesty mikan to rounded sweet caramel as it warmed. Not bad, but not a real knockout. john_henry (124) - - MAR 27, 2014
Great beer, but I don’t get the Mikan at all, maybe it’s ads complexity that otherwise wouldn’t be evident, but don’t expect to be tasting any Mikan here.
