Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma is hoppy, some sweet apricot and orange notes, caramel malts and resin also. Flavor of resinous and oily hops, hay, caramel malts and faint gooseberries. Sweet sticky palate, lingering fruity finish. Nice hoppy brew.

Aroma is sweet with fruity notes, caramel and hints of toffee. Flavour is sweet with fruity hops, caramel, some passion and mango. Finishes with lingering hops. Feels very American. A positive surprise.

Pours clear yellowish golden with a smooth white head. Aroma of stingy piney notes, resinous hops, grapefruits, citrus, grass and biscuity malts. Taste is sweetish, hoppy, grassy and grapefruity with resinous notes, pine and biscuity maltiness. Finish is sweetish, hoppy and bitter with some resinous notes and pine. Surprisingly good.
Can at WilliamK, Helsinki. Pours clear golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is prominently fruity with an exotic touch, also some pine. Taste is dry and medium bitter, very fresh and crisp. Hoppiness carries the taste to its conclusion fairly quickly and the exotic notes the aroma suggested do not feature much; the taste displays grass and pine. The palate is medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Not the richest IPA around but definitely very decent. Interesting to try a Japanese IPA. jpkeskinen (526) - FINLAND - MAR 18, 2014
From a can at a bar. In addition to the usual ipa hops, the beer has a nice amount of malty sweetness.

Copper clear. Peach citrus, with a murkier malty twang. Foresty pines in there, too. Medium light bodied, dry bitter. Grassy piny hops, pale malts. It has a good stable hoppy nose that doesn’t fade. But a bit too green in flavour for me. Intersting tho, nice trying a hoppy one from japan.
Clear orange beer with a brief white head. Peach and leather on the nose. Some leather, glue and fruit in a very nice combination. Bitterness is like birch leaves. A very unique and interesting IPA. I like it. HKdIPA (850) - HONG KONG - MAR 15, 2014
Beertopia 2014 #9. Pineapple taste. Malty. Not much hops. Good but not really worth seeking out again. jdjuice (500) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - MAR 12, 2014
Pours hazy amber gold with white head. Aroma mostly floral hops. Taste is a little bitterness up front, but a bit thin otherwise. A little too thin for a good ipa, but a little too thick for a hoppy pale ale. VastActiv (7600) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 11, 2014
