Thank you to my brother Chris for this thoughtful gift. Pours a very hazy golden in color with a medium, lingering white head. The aroma is more on the subtle side. It consists of apricot, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, and light pine. The taste is mildly bitter up front which than extends in some sweetness. Its a bit tangy as well. It is heavier on grapefruit that is balanced with pineapple. There is plenty of floral hops in here, as well as mango and lemon. The aftertaste is a mild grapefruit, but it does last quite awhile. Its light to medium in body, with a somewhat sticky texture, with above average carbonation. This one is different than the typical IPA found here in the US. Its is less intense with hops and is focused more towards the citrus aspects. Enjoyable. I think the artwork on these Japanese cans is pretty cool also.
