As an IPA this is below average but it’s good to see a decent beer from Japan. Light aromas of pineapple and citrus as well as light flavors of citrus. Slight bitterness.
Sampled from can at Floris’s leaving tasting. Clear golden with white head. Sweet malts, rice, tropical fruit. Buttery and malty. kermis (13256) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2017

Can shared for Floris’s Leaving Beers at Gekke Geit. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of cheesy malt, weedy green hop notes and caramel. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Got in Koyoto. It pours golden with a white head. It has aromas of tropical fruit and a bready background. It has sweet tropical fruit flavors with a bit of grapefruit and grass. The aftertaste is moderately bitter and long lasting. BeerWarden74 (4) - Iwakuni, JAPAN - JUN 22, 2017 does not count
Not a bad beer but too hoppy for my taste. I’ve found it hard to find good beer in Japan so far. But I haven’t been here long. jbruner (4734) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Pours a cheat golden orange from the can with wispy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of spicy hop notes with earthy pine and caramel malt. Taste follows with a kind of dirty dryness, a mild bitterness. Maltier than most current Americans, but nice.

Can from 7-11 Beers of the Spring in Taipei, Wuxing road. I wish they would proffer that this was an American style IPA. I don’t want to get on my high horse but only American IPA’s seem to think it is an arms race in which the percentage must be obscenely high as must the sheer amount of hops used.
This is rendition of an American IPA so has both the afformentioned features. That said it isn’t bad at all.
Nose is sharp hops and grapefruit. The taste is again grapefruit and hops with a crisp,bitter lasting finish. This would be great on a hot day in pint form, you just have to remember that it’s 7%. sephyrott (129) - - APR 26, 2017
0.33 ml can at the hotel in Tokyo. Carbonated IPA, hoppy but not excessively. Christpuncher (3112) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2017
I really like this Japanese IPA. Very hoppy, pretty bitter. Very well balanced. Pours copper with a white head. Ha at Juno sushi. Yummers

Burk. Klar mörkguldfärgad med ett smutsvitt skum. Dofter av grapefrukt, tallbarr och parfym. Smakinslag av grapefrukt, tallbarr, gräs och trä. Något stickig beska, saknar sötma. faroeviking (10910) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 22, 2017
