Bottle from Dogenzaka Shinanoya. They seem to be changing their import selection quite regularly, finding here something to pick up every time I visit (which is about once a month).Pours a bit darker orange, some beige foam on top, quite a lot of that - reducing into a thin layer relatively quickly. Nose is mainly malty, some citrus notes coming through. Taste is creamier and hoppier than I could have thought from relatively nondescript nose. Good balance, feels citric-juicy, close to IPA material. Getting also some spiciness from rye, citric bread IPA. Really? Yes, really. TBone (19190) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2018

Amber colour, steady white head. Pineapple tropical fruity aroma. Medium-bodied. Tropical fruity, sweetish, no rye found. Good mellow citrusy finish. Ok APA.
Gravicask (CWAF2017) at 6.0%ianwelby (1646) - SCOTLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Rubber aroma. Sugary sweet taste, sicky fruity peach syrup. More like sweet fruit juice than beer. Slickish palate, too sugary, not refreshing
Lively, hazy amber beer with a foamy white head. Bitter, slightly sour rye aroma. Flavour is initially a touch sweeter, fruity, slightly bready. The sourness does come into it and there’s a distinct rye ale taste to it. Sour and dry in the finish. Not too shabby. JohnRMurdoch (5309) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 31, 2017
330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer. Dark amber brown, reasonable head. Rye grain aroma. Biscut resin rye flavour. Perfumey aftertaste. Complex and smooth.

Bottle from Beer Metropolis, Little Eaton, Derbyshire consumed at home Wednesday 21st December 2016 Great colour, light amber gold, good clarity with a white head. Nice streaky but silky hoppiness, a little citrus vein runs through this. There is a lot going on for a modestly strength beer. Like this a lot.
