Heidbummer (355) - SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2016
Draught at the beer works Akasaka. Had this a few years ago in can and it rocked. On draught its sofet, but still full of hops, citrus, floral nores. It doesnt quite knock it out of the park, and it fades a bit, but its a good solid full strength IPA.

Cokemonkey11 (665) - - OCT 30, 2016
Can. Pours medium light pale ale with a thin white foam subsiding to a thin rim. Scent is fairly standard early hops of simcoe/citra. Some other scents of maybe light unclean water. Light dirt. Taste is dense IPA with flavors and mouthfeel of hop grains. Grassy. Manages to be a great beer.

Capa (2947) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2009 Light copper with some amber. Aroma has some light bitterness, some pine, earth, and slightly sweet malts. Bitterness hits a lot harder in the flavor. Some citrus and pine, light sweet malt backbone. Lemon comes through just barely. Bitter finish with a slight oiliness. Not all that complex, but nice. Crisp, medium body, Nice and bitter for a Japanese IPA but a little lacking in overall flavor. Id buy it again, though. (Just bought a can of this last night for 140 yen. Thats cheaper than some of the crappy pale lagers available in Japan. Unbeatable for that price)

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2008
A Mes rate: Can at GBBF thanks very muchly to Rob Beer.
An odd but attractive green gold colour with a very good white head and excellent condition. Good malt, good hops and very well balanced. Slightly raw in the flavour. A little too much alcohol but the really pleasing malt saves the day. A U.S. like IPA hoppy finish with eventual thick malt. Great length. A damn good canned beer.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2008
Can at GBBF with a glass of cheese and a plate of beer, its all gone wrong. Alround rating: Biscuity malts, richer malts too, grassy and intencly bitter, an interesting and different ipa.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2010
Light orange colored, huge yellow head. Citrus-flowery hopped aroma with thin pine, good ipa aroma for me. Medium bodied. Flavor is more fruity in start, lemon also here. Aftertaste dries with pine and flowers, grassy note lasts.

daknole (10919) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Tampa crew rocks it. Can. Apricot/gold pour. White head. Simple hoppy aroma with a fair malt bill. Flavor is simple and straight forward. Easy drinking with the light herbal and citrus hops.

marcus (9537) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Can from Healthy Spirits. Pours light amber with a thick off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a solid caramel malt flavor with a bitter citrus finish. Refreshing and drinkable, but a little too harsh.
