Can from TNT Taisho.
L: pours a slightly cloudy caramel-red with a nice fluffy off-white head.
S: plenty of grapefruit, sweetened caramel malt.
T: strong citrus hop flavour, the sourness of grapefruit meshing nicely with the sweetness and malt.
F: has a bitter finish, almost spoiling the taste at first, but it settles and has a good creamy balance.
O: a satisfying IRA, plenty of bite with a refreshing citrus burst. djd07 (16317) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2015
On nitro at Hopworks Bikebar. Pours a clear copper gold with medium creamy off white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is grass and grapefruit. Medium mouth, bready malt, pine, light bitterness, good. Yazapapa (9) - - MAY 23, 2015 does not count
Drinkable for the style. It is hard to do a really outstanding IRA and this one is not bad. Not great, but totally agreeable with a steak dinner. Nice looking beer on draught with just enough head. Worth a try. FrenchieK (20) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
Pours a hazy amber red with a creamy off-white head. Aromas of citrusy hops backed by caramel malt. Hoppy flavour with caramel malt and a good bitter finish. Medium body. mjg74 (3205) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 28, 2015
Can (6.1%) from Trader Joe’s. Pretty fresh canned on the 7th. Deep crystal clear amber in color. Hoppy nose. Some grapefruit, along with a little dankness. Some candy sugar as well. Well hopped. Pretty pungent flavors with a decent amount of malt character. Finish is a little lacking, but overall a very good amber.

Old rating. Really nice clean Amber. Reddish gold color. Malty, nutty with clean bitter finish. Drinkable Amber. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2015
Draught. Pours a somewhat hazy dark amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose has quite a bit of floral and citrus notes, which was a nice little surprise. Taste is slightly bitter up front, but quickly changes to a muddled malty sweet finish with dough. Great smell, odd finish. liquidhedonism (289) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2015
