On 06/18/2011. Slightly hazy golden body with a small creamy white head. Sweet floral and resiny hop aroma. Sweet resiny and floral hop flavor with some caramel. Medium body with moderate carbonatikon. maekchu (3911) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 5, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Bottle. Sampling session at Lefty’s. Nice mix of pine and citrus, and some stinky fruitiness. Light grapefruit and some sweet peach / mid balances very well / finish is tasty and full of gentle bitterness. Medium body. Bit of a hop bomb at first, but goes milder quickly with a lovely range of fruit. KansaiBeerLvrs (5152) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 3, 2013
At a tasting at KyotoLefty’s place. A straw gold with a filmy head, powerful aroma of citrus with a touch of pine. A medium to full body with an ascerbic, bitter, hoppy... kind of stinky tropical fruits, citrus & pine. A solid IPA, not so complex but good & not too boozy.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 16 oz Bottle. The beer pours golden with a medium white head. The aroma is very strong with floral & citrus notes to it. The taste has a mild body to it with a medium bitter finish. Overall a very good DIPA. merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2013
A: Mildly Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes A Lot of Light, White Head Ring, Decent Lacing
S: Floral, Piney, Mild Malts
T: Piney, Resin, Mild Grapefruit
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Bitter, Dry
Overall, this would be a great IPA but they list it as a DIPA and it kind of lacks from that aspect. Good but not great. Pyrmir (6088) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2013
Pint bottle. Golden with which head. Aroma of marmalade, caramel, fruity hops. Taste is sweet, fruity, marmalade more fruit and medium bitterness. bbbeer (816) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Golden color with small off white head. Aroma hops of the citrus kind with some grainy malt. Medium body, little alcohol of note. Flavor matches aroma with mostly citrus hops and tending toward the dry bitter side. Good. jb (3251) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Nose improves as it warms. Started out grainy, boozy, with pine and a touch of citrus. A bit more of a pine / citrus split as it warms. Clear and gold. Hop dominated taste but nice full bodied mouthfeel is the prize here, a bit silky, a bit chewy. Alcohol hidden in taste. Not bad, I was expecting more, but not bad.
