GenkiGonzo (1088) - Kyoto, - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle. Great colour and nose. After taste accentuates the initial burst of hoppy and mildly fruity goodness.

MayumiH (1054) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2016
Bottle at my parents. Plenty of pine, some citrus, slight earthiness from the hops. Nice caramel malts. Refreshing. Not bad at all.

Cokemonkey11 (607) - - OCT 30, 2016
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.

MrDick (373) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 30, 2016
On tap at Two Dogs Taproom. Pours a bit hazy. It was described as a "West meets East IPA" and it's pretty straight on. Citrus, hop overload, malt backbone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hawthorne00 (3603) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2016
Tap. Hazy amber with a modest white head. Pine and kumquat aroma. Med bodied, moderate carbonation. Slightly toasty bread, vague citrus, maybe too much pine. Dry and bitter (a little over the top with that too) at the end.

HonusWagner (2127) - Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2016
A pretty plain but still tasty Japanese IPA. Its a little hoppy and has lingering cereal malt graininess that is pleasant. Id drink it again at its reasonable price.

visionthing (4879) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 6, 2016
33cl bottle at Enza Caf, Kanbayashi (just outside the snow monkey park). Pours hazy orange to amber without much head to speak of. Fruity aroma with citrus, tropical fruits, pine and notes of malt and herbs. Moderate to medium sweet with nice hoppy flavours and a notable, but balanced bitterness. Medium body with fairly average carbonation. Quite delicious and a perfect refreshment after hours of monkey watching.

Hop_Hedonist (484) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2016 Im pleasantly surprised - didnt know this one at all - a superb west coast style IPA - packed with hoppy flavour and a niiiiiice bitter twang - will go back for more at this cool, off-the-beaten-track, pan-Asian (mostly Japanese-inspired) restaurant in Singapore (The East Bureau - rooftop of the Marina Square shopping mall) - also had Hitachino Nest which was another surprise find.
