Tap at CBM Kichijoji. Pear and apple aromas with some light pepper and citrus. Taste is slightly sweet with good citrus notes. Average carbonation with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Hoppy bitter finish, but not overly so, with a touch of pepper. Solid. BuckeyeBoy (8281) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 6, 2015

Tap at Swan Lake Pub Edo, Tokyo. Hazy orange/golden shade. White head, some lace. Slightly tropical, peach, fruity. Creamy and quite sweet taste but with some bitterness to balance that. Had no idea they were aiming for a Belgian IPA at the time but looking back it definitely worked out well. GenkiGonzo (1092) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 16, 2015
Draught at Bungalow. Hazy gold colour, decent head. Funky yeast aroma with hops behind it. Bitter start and finish with nice yeast to balance it out.

Tap at Marciero. This is a "Belgium" IPA. i.e. uses Belgium yeast I believe.
Aroma: Orange and mikan, mikan blossom, pear, grain, light ginger note,
Palate: Medium-Full bodied
Flavor: Gentle mikan, pear, yeast, light-medium ginger bitterness that gains some intensity. Long grainy finish.
Comment: Complete flavor and mouthfeel. A superb beer. 39+ points. maekchu (4024) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 20, 2014
Draught at Yellow Ape Craft. Big fruity, yeasty nose, with pears and peaches. Hazy amber color. Well-hopped from the start, fermented fruit and such well-integrated bitterness. Medium body, great mouthfeel. As balanced as can be. biirusaikou (2705) - - MAR 22, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2015 Quite a yeasty nose. Rich apricot character, marmelade, orange peel, biscuit malt, fruity hops, peppery yeast finish. The Belgian twist on a fruity IPA is quite interesting, almost feels like drinking down an apricot tart. KansaiBeerLvrs (5304) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 22, 2014
B-IPA meaning BELGIAN IPA rather than black IPA... On tap at Bungalow. It pours a cloudy light gold.kild Belgian spicy notes with lots of citrusy hop character in the bouquet. Full bodied, smooth, sweet. Almost candiesh in the flavor, the spices & the hops merge into a tasty cake like sweetness. Not so bitter, very tasty & interesting. It has definite clove notes with a sharp finish. Those clove notes re quite prominent leading me to feel this is more of a hoppy weizen than a Belgian IPA, damn good though.

Aroma of Belgian yeast and fruity hops , with some citrus.fruity with a hefty, though drinkable body. Belgian yeast esters with grapefruit and citrus in the finish. Medium finish. Good stuff.
