4.7/5  rDev +4.7%

Bottle bought in Japan (Shinshu Osake Mura), poured into a goblet.

A: Darker tan/orange color. Cloudy and not much of a head.

S: Yum.. strong grapefruit and citrus smells, hops and sweet malts are present but the overwhelming grapefruit smell is outstanding.

T: Starts off with slight sweet citrus which quickly transitions to a wallop of a grapefruit, lemon and hop punch. Malts are there to keep the punch in check but can barely handle it. The finish is once again an awesome combination of grapefruit and citrus.

M: Starts of sticky sweet and the finish is quite dry.

O: Best Japanese IPA I have had so far. The grapefruit deliciousness really puts this up there with some of the best in the States as well! Try it!

I had this on tap at Craftheads in Shibuya.

The beer comes in a glowing orange color.

The aroma has some of orange, sweet juicy citrus. Smells definitely of Citra.

The flavor has very refreshing orange citrus, then a very pithy flavor hits, very light malt biscuit malt middle, and a drying pithy end finish. The middle pithy flavor is quite different, though the beer surely hides its ABV quite well. Very hoppy, good amount of bitterness, great beer.
