2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours hazy deep golden orange with a wispy white head. Nose of orange candy. Taste of orange candy. Sweet. A bit more like a British IPA. This was probably an oldish can, but still... meh.
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):DarkMagus (560) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2017
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.
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 (4052) - 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.

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 (13687) - 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. sjogro (4734) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2017
Sampled from can at Floris’s leaving tasting. Clear golden with white head. Sweet malts, rice, tropical fruit. Buttery and malty.
