Tap at Shinshu Osake Mura. Pours a caramel copper with a finger of foam that lingers. Sweet malt, honey and grassy hops on the nose. Sweet on the palate, with little hop character. Sweet and bitter finish with some light caramel. jpkeskinen (515) - FINLAND - JUL 1, 2015
Drank as a draught. Quite nice. The hops are not very strong but there is nice fruity sweetness in the taste. The finish is a bit boozy though. GenkiGonzo (1092) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 11, 2014
Draught at Kyoto Craft Beer Festival. Nice golden pour. Grassy hops with some sweetness in the aroma. Same with the flavour, not enough fruit for my liking. jinroh (1597) - ESTONIA - APR 2, 2014
Bottle @ Shinshu Osake Mura. Pours hazy, darker side of yellow. Aroma is quite malty with a slightly bitter and skunky hop touch. Taste is very sweet, a strong malt backbone with a bit of bitterness. Not really my favourite take on IPA as a style, drinkable though. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle at Hotel Iidaya, Matsumoto. Clear amber - white head. Nice hoppy, resin, grassy, orange, citrus, light grape fruits, rather high fruity, toasted notes, light sweet malty notes. Lovely.

Draught at Bakujun. Bright copper with virtually no head. Pleasantly sweet nose of malty caramel and fruit, very subtle hops. Medium body with a touch of stickiness. Flavours were excellent, with brown sugar, citrus and pine. Was told it was quite sweet, but found it well balanced. Quite nice. KansaiBeerLvrs (5153) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 19, 2013
6% on tap at Bungalow. A lovely copper color & a clean hoppy aroma which is nice & floral. A really nice slightly fruity citrus, spicy hop flavor with a very solid sweet caramel malt backbone. Very well balanced, my kind of IPA. sunevdj (4087) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 7, 2013
On tap at RBJG#2, Shinshu Osake Mura. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head and lacings. Sweet with some bitterness. Hoppy aromas of resin and spruce. Also hints of molasses. Medium to full bodied. Soft, almost flat carbonation. Dry finish. jonno (2761) - JAPAN - APR 2, 2013
Soft toffee, caramel nose. Full and rounded with the malt dominant with some herbal and foloral noses. Austere and big. AndySnow (7621) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2013
Draught at Shinshu Osake Mura. Orange brown colour with an off-white head. Fresh malty hops aroma. Malty slightly bitter flavour with some citrus and low on hops.
