tiong (7669) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2017
330ml bottle from Yamaoka, Kyoto. Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of grassy hops, pine, resin, caramely malts and herbal notes. Taste is smooth, fresh hoppy and herbal with some pine, grass, citrus and resin. Finish is resinous, lingering bitter and herbal hoppy with some pine and caramel. Pretty tasty west coast IPA.

473ml on Keg at Two Dogs Taproom, Roppongi, Tokyo (¥950):

This one was a decent first beer from the brewery for me & one that got off to a good start with a solid pine & grapefruit bitterness. Things remained balanced thanks to the earthy malts & touches of sweetness that appeared further on which made it an easy beer to drink.

Poured from a bottle floral, appearance is hazy, with an amber-orange colour topped with a thin head of white froth, with moderate retention and lacing on the glass. Aroma is hoppy, mainly floral, pine, resin, and some fruit, though not citrus or grapefruit in nature. Taste-wise comes across as balanced, some sweetness, again not a fruity sort of sweetness, with pine and floral notes, and helps to balance off the bitterness, which only comes back sharply in the short finish. Carbonation is average, giving it is lively mouthfeel and buzz.

.Good memories this one brings. Not sure if I can distinct the rice but seems balanced enough with some bitter kick nothing like american style IPA less on aroma. Bit simple, but that seems to be the style in Japan and I dont mind balanced beer at all.
