The face on the can laughing at you tells the story very well - decent bitter hoppy IPA with a strong hazelnut aftertaste. Straightforward. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Now this is a first for me - a canned IPA from Japan. It has a light amber body, a bit hazed, with a slender bubbly head. The aroma is light caramel along with some earthy/herbal/grassy scents. The flavor begins with an earthy bitterness that remains through the finish. The malt is there as soft caramel, and dry grassy and herbal tastes add to the flavor. Dry and bitter is the finish. Pretty decent. hirigalzkar (3169) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
Nice looking can @ Black Swan. Buttery, sweet, fruity and alcoholic. Not refreshing enough. olsvammel (7226) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2014
Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2014. Hoppy smell with grapefruit and caramel. Creamy and hoppy taste with some candy and soap. Nice, a bit aged, but nice. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2014
Can at Bishops Arms, Bellmansgatan, Stockholm. Clear golden beer with a decent offwhite head. Hoppy hay aroma, grass, floral notes, citrus notes. Hoppy biscuit flavor, onions, bread, grapes, a bit soapy.

Can. Had this on numerous occasions since it was available at many grocery stores.
Pour is orange with a white head. Citrus hops aroma and some biscuit. Flavour was well rounded with a fair amount of hoppiness. Didn’t realize the ABV was up at 7%.

350ml can @ Cardinal. Unclear orange body with a medium sized off-white head. Mild aroma of matured fruit and pale malt. Flavor is sweet pale malt, hint of caramel, fruity, ripe fruit and moderate bitterness. Quite plain and straightforward, nothing especially going on here, but no off flavors either. Medium body and moderate aftertaste. A rather plain and slightly sweet beer that might be more of a pale ale than IPA. jeremyBrews (2) - Chiba-shi, JAPAN - OCT 16, 2014 does not count
An extremely sessionable IPA. Pretty much the definition of drinkable IPA, at least in the sense that it’s kind of a cross between IPA and Pale Ale, which is an extremely Japanese craft beer thing to do (bring all malt and hop notes down). Aroma is flowery, head is decent, balance is solid. sunevdj (4087) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2014
