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.

Bottle at my parents. Plenty of pine, some citrus, slight earthiness from the hops. Nice caramel malts. Refreshing. Not bad at all.

10oz, keg, bungalow, Kyoto Japan. Pours dense opaque amber with a thin white head residing. Scent is cedar wood i think. Light vanilla. Taste is light pale IPA with a slightly sour/dry aftertaste. Very simple but not without particular notes. The resin here is very strong. Overall a bit too simple for my taste. Very good.
