Smooth body. Medium bitterness. Fairly heady. A bit of citrusy character. A bit sweet. Pretty decent stuff. Blumer1 (1) - - MAY 11, 2016 does not count
Citrusy notes with a well balanced taste. Hoppy aroma with a not too bitter after taste.

orange-red gold pour. Aroma wheat, mango. Tastes big sprucey, bitter of tonic, spearmint. lingering resin finish. maekchu (4024) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 13, 2016
Can from Sake no Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Fruity nose, with citrus, some tropical fruit, caramel. A bit dank. Copper/orange color. Citrus, caramel, crackers, earthy piney hop, mild finish with minimal bitterness. Medium-heavy body. Near the body and feel of an imperial IPA. Not sure how this could be their 15th anniversary ... the can says "since 2006"? luttonm (6657) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2016
From a sixer in Seattle. Thanks to Julie for surprising me with this! Rich clear orange with significant foamy head. Inviting pine-citrus aroma, rather typical northwest hop profile, but delicious. Clean bitter sip, a little lighter in the body than I was expecting. Balanced sweet character, clean medicinal mint, sharp and clean finish. Pretty darn tasty, a good ’daily’ example of a good PNW IPA but not something I’ll seek out.

On tap at Belmont Ststion. Colour...hazy gold with a thick white head. Nose...heavily conifer oriented hops with sugar frosted tropical fruits and lemon curd. Palate...zesty, vibrant and fresh with grapefruit pulp and pith, rose hips and apple leaf. The entire palate is bitter and dry with an almost alum like feel. The finish is long, bitter and zippy with dust coated hops. biirusaikou (2705) - - JAN 6, 2016
Heady citrus, peach, papaya, mango. Rich fruitiness with a juicy edge, grape, pear, guava, pine, peppermint, long hoppy finish. Another delicious Schooner brew with a nice hop kick, yummy. jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Fantastic IPA with tons of citrus, and some slight pine. Very balanced, crisp, and not sweet. Has a light breadiness in the after taste. KyotoLefty (10611) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 21, 2015
Tap at Bud. Cloudy, deep orange with a low, fine head. Tropical fruit nose, grapefruit, quite malty and biscuity. Rich but not too sweet. Great fruit flavors, big bitterness, full body. Excellent. willisread (3554) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Can from MItsuya’s. Pours a clear gold with a medium-sized white head. Clean and crisp nose with grapefruit, papaya and light mango with some pine resin. Medium to light body with nice carbonation. Super drinkable and thirst-quenching. Good bitter and dry finish that leaves some fruit on the palate. Another great IPA from SE.
