Quite a decent IPA, aroma is a bit soft, pours a attractive orange with a rather quickly vanishing head. Sweetish body, with plenty of citrus hoppy notes to keep you busy. Tends to prove that good beer can go into cans. Noice

Rating #700. Aroma is vanilla, lychee, marzipan. Taste is peppery and spicy and fruity and malty - but there's very little bitterness going on, which I would have expected from the style. While writing this I notice a sweet vanilla and marzipan finish. Fullbodied and creamy mouthfeel with medium carbonation. The vanilla character of this brew surprised me, but it's not bad.

350ml Can from Lawson's Station, Kyoto (¥242):
Quite a basic IPA from Yo-Ho & one that wasn't quite as varied or bitter as anticipated going in, there was some earthy bitterness throughout & touches of pine/grapefruit but nothing seemed particularly strong or adventurous. Some background fruits & citrus towards the end made sure it remained pleasant enough but I feel it was definitely missing something.

DarkMagus (560) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2017
Pours a clear golden color with a nice white head and some sticky lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, bit of pineapple, some earthy pine, and malty sweetness. Flavors were quite similar to the aroma: predominantly citrusy hops, some resinous piney bitterness, and a fair amount of sweet malt. Medium body, astringent finish. Pretty good!

mile (4067) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2017
Can. Light golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish aroma, some caramel, some tropical fruitiness, light - some grapefruit/citrus hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, some caramel, light tropical fruitiness, light grapefruit/citrus hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish - lightly sweetish, faint fruitiness, light - some citrus hoppyness, faint - light alcohol. Fruity aroma but flavor but finish almost totally lacks fruitiness. OK but nothing special.

tightslice (1525) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Can pour at Kemuri in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is light citrus peels, some hay. Taste is light grass and some lemon. A very mild IPA without much flavor.

obabu (10) - porto alegre, BRAZIL - AUG 8, 2017
Aroma contagiante, complexo, floral e resinoso. Dourada e com espuma de boa formação. Entretanto o sabor não acompanha tudo que o aroma promete. Infelizmente é uma cerveja apenas regular.

bierkoning (13806) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2017
Can. Golden color. Citrus, lychee and soft herbal notes in the aroma. Firm herbal hopbitter flavor with citrus and a hint of peach. Pleasant but firm hopbitter finish.

MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2017
Bottle @ Floris’ Leaving Party. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head that quickly disappears. Aroma of fruity and juicy hops, light mango. Flavor is very stale, some cheesy hops and cardboard in there, light grassy and a bit weird to be fair. Not as good as the aroma suggest, unfortunately.
