Can from Deguchiya. Light orange and grapefruit on the nose. Fairly well-balanced with some caramel malt notes and fruity citrus. Slightly pithy finish that lingers but still has some fruit. Old School American IPA but good stuff. sunevdj (4084) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2015

From a small palstic cup at Keyaki Hiroba. Pours pale, a bit golden, slightly hazy. Aroma has some skunky hops, no fruits but kind of earthy. Herbal and sweet also perhaps. Taste has some good strength hop bitterness, medium body. Would like to have this in a pint glass.

Draught at Bungalow. Pale gold. Very fruity aroma, some biscuit. Smooth flavour, but not a lot of hops. Not bad. TBone (17442) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2014

On tap at the GJBF in Osaka 2014. A clear deep copper pour. Big resinous pine hoppy aroma, medium bodied with a sprightly mouthfeel. The taste is fruity pine hop balanced by solid malts, veering on the bitter side but that is perfect for an IPA. biirusaikou (2705) - - JUN 27, 2014
Mild peach, apricot. Cereals, honey, pulpy mango, mild hoppy finish. A bit mild overall but quite drinkable, more fruity than hoppy so a more refreshing choice for the summer shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 17, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 Rerate at Ushi Tora, Summer 2014. Good stuff, grainy but with lots of bitterness, grapefruit, dry. Full on citrus. After a while graininess takes over. Still nice. Little bit if sweetness. I like it. From the first rating:
Tap at Shinshu Sake Mura. Marked as Oh La Ho IPA, but they did also have posters up for the Rydeen, so who knows? Light amber colour, off white thick head. Aroma is very hoppy, lots of pine, citrus, something slightly stinky or twiggy. Bready maltiness.Taste is nice, bitter,more malt than hop, slight spice prickle. Twigs again, but just enough hoppiness too. Spicy bite. Haven’t had many IPAs like this in Japan, so interesting, but personally probably would prefer more fruitiness. Solid though.
