look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Topped with 4 fingers of yellow head that fades before your eyes in a couple minutes. Yellow orange body with very little carbonation.


S: Grapefruit, pine, turpentine, orange zest, smelly foot, tropical fruit punch.


T: Sweet with tropical fruit notes, papaya, ripe mango, jackfruit, alcohol mostly covered but appears in the nose as fumes. Bitter grapefruit aftertaste.


M: Sappy with a light syrupy quality, virtually no carbonation, lightly sticky finish.


O: Got and drank in CNX Feb 17th, 2015. I see low ratings on this one, but I think it’s a great attempt from Japan. Borders on a double IPA, and is quite interesting. Cool artistry on the can.

one of my fav IPAs, this is sold across all the country, mostly in lawson and familymart(but not in every store, in fact, in some areas it's quite hard to find), about 250~280JPY per 0.33 can. very huge bit of taste resembles orange/grapefruit, with a long-lasting aftertaste. IMO, this should have more score, but whatever, if you're coming to japan, try getting this one instead of other pop-stuff.

I get yhis a the convenience store around the corner so drink this quite often.Hops aren't over the top but has a nice malt flavour. Slides down nice and easy:)
Yo-ho brewing's website doesn't mention this being an American IPA.
In fact it won a silver medal in English IPA class.

I am surprised this is a fairly decent IPA from Japan, where Happoshu dominated that market.

Poured into tulip. Pale amber. One finger head. Nice lacing.
Smells was hints of citrus and caramel.
Taste is much followed the smell, somewhat too bitter, still pretty drinkable IMO.
Light to medium bodied.
Overall I think this is a classic IPA that does not have any off characters, it is not so outstanding, either.

Aroma is predominantly caramel malt with pine in the background. Pours a one-finger, off-white head; moderate retention and good lacing. Body is clear, deep gold. Characteristic intense bitterness; grassy, pine-like hops; alcohol; just a touch of sweetness. Medium body; crisp, light carbonation.

Not a bad American IPA, but overall lacking a sense of balance and nuance. Aroma expresses more malt than hop, while the malt sweetness in the flavor is insufficient to serve a supporting role.
