Cereal malts against floral hops and sweet bitterness fades into grapefruit notes, so yeah

Bottle:   Pale orange, faint haze, big fluffy white head, nice lacing.   Soft hoppy nose, fresh, a little like tea leaves.   Similar on the tongue, soft hops, very light bitterness.   Whats there tastes like soft pith and tea leaves.   Smooth, fairly full bodied for an ISA.   Clean finish, lingering pith and tea leaves with only very light bitterness.   Pretty damn good example of the style I must say.

maekchu (3613) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 27, 2016
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi), as "Emerald IPA.." Nose of piney hop, mild tropical fruit, Mosaic, quite earthy and a bit cat pissy. Light orange/ amber color. Pleasant dryish initial flavor, with crackers, citrus, small bit of stone fruit, and caramel. Medium body. Well-balanced, mild sort of IPA.

Tap in Yoyogi park. Big juicy, citrus-forward nose with orange and grapefruit really standing out. Crackery malts, clean and crisp on the palate. Bitter finish, but not overdone. Very nice session beer.

Bottle - either old as dirt or just very poorly made. Cardboard and dirt malt. Light hops and tropical fruit. Boooooring.

mcberko (15431) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at Schooner Exact, pours a clear pale golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of piney hops and toasted crackery malt. Flavour is dry, with toasted crackery malt, astringent hops, and mineraly notes. Too mineraly, which is what usually annoys me about ISAs. Decent, but off the mark.

Draft - Bright juicy citrus. Clear gold with a decent white head. Bright citrus with a long citric acidic finish. Bright and easy drinking.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours brassy gold with a white head. Aroma is mosaic or some related NZ hop. Dont think its Nelson tho. Chewy and near full bodied. A little earthiness pops into the fruit mix. This is good, hoppy stuff. Extremely sessionable. Finish tends towards melon, fruit, earth. Nice and bitter, yet not bitingly so. Good job.
