Had a glass of this at BeerBelly in Osaka. According to the BeerBelly staff, they used Cascade and Williamette hops.

A - A slightly hazy yellow body with a pure white head. Excellent lacing.
S - Big hoppy sweet citrus aroma.
T - Restrained bitterness, slightly sweet malts.
M - Extremely low carbonation, light body.
D - I imagine that this beer is all about dry hopping, considering its huge bouquet, but mild bitterness.

Says triple hop pale ale on the bottle, reviewing as an AIPA.

Has the look down. Hazy aprocot colour, huge head, great retention and tons of lacing.

Funky aroma. Fresh cut grass, some citrus, some pine, and a touch of sourness.

Interesting to say the least. Lot's going on, unfortunately none of it in balance. Three hops are citrus, pine and spicy, but all three want the same amount of attention ALL the time. Tastes like a hybrid Scottish herb beer and a Yank pale ale.

Kind of light and thin.

Like a science experiment gone just slight astray.

Lets see how a Japanese brewery tackles an IPA. This was purchased at Julios in Westboro. Very cool slender looking bottle. First I have to say that this is a beautiful looking brew. It is a glowing orange, with a large white heading that perfectly enveloped the top of my Duvel glass. Smells of damp earth and tangerine first come to mind in aromatics, followed by some ginger. First pull brings forth a very interesting, complex hop bitterness. These hops are very earth oriented, and leave the palate with a mint leaf flavor. Mouthfeel is medium, with prickly hops dominating the malt, yet still not a hop bomb. Drinking this beer is way too easy. Wow, this is a standout IPA for me. It laps many of its American counterparts for the style. I will have to try the rest of the line from these guys. Cheers

Poured into a Willis Glass.

Pours a hazy orange color with about 3 fingers of foam, even with a careful pour. Lots of carbonation bubbles evident. Head really stands up.

Faint aromas of citrusy hops with some grassy notes. Aromas are a little subdued for an american IPA, which could be due to age. But there is no bottling information on the bottle.

First sip is of a light grassy bitterness, with some faint grapefruit notes. It must be an old bottle. Also some faint flavors of hard candy, and a carbonic acid bite.

Mouthfeel is prickly, almost too gassy. Overcarbonated for my taste. The most noticable mouth sensation is the carbonic bite.

Drinkability is okay. The high carbonation doesn't suit it for a session beer, as it leaves you feeling bloated and with a full feeling.

Pours auburn/reddish hue, lots of tiney carb rising. Beautiful. 1 finger slightly off-white head. Clear.

Aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, soap, floral

Taste is musty, sweet, hops.

Mouthfeel is medium-light, cleansing.

Overall, a decent brew. not-typical for the style but drinkable.

16.9 oz bottle

A: Copper body under a big, chunky white head.

S: Hoppy and some funk. Floral, herbal hop mixed with some sour apple type aromas. Not what I would expect from an AIPA.

T: Again, funky notes. Hint of citrus hop. Dry overall, not a lot of bitterness in the finish at all.

M/D: Light to medium body. Drinkablity is OK. Average attempt at an AIPA, but still remains interesting by itself.

On tap at Beer Club Popeye in Ryogoku, Tokyo.

Light coloured ale with a small head. Well balanced with a good hop presence, but doesn't live up to its 'tripelhop' nomer. Great mouthfeel for this style of beer, with a smooth bready aftertaste that makes this very drinkable. A good start to the evening.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a bit reddish in nature, a fairly ligh color. Had a cloudy haze with plenty of carbonation rising to refill the foamy off white head. Predominant smell was a herby citrus. Maybe some citrus. Very slightly sweet, but finished with a bit of bitterness. Taste started off pleasant, a bit of malt, but shifted to a slightly sour flavor before changing back to a bit of hoppy. The sour was offputing and unexpected. Seemed to mellow as the beer sat over time. Felt good in the mouth, tongue tingled nicely from the carbonation, and a bit of chew. Start and finish definitely show potential, but the middle sour flavor was just too bizarre to rate higher overall.

big bold pour, frothy chunky head, very appealing. taste and mouthfeel were as adverstised, a big dry tangy/ citrusy hoppy smell/ taste. Once you get past the citrus, the mouthfeel carries the same flavors, and finishes tangy/ citrus. This is an interesting beer, quite nice considering the travel, I likened it to some mammoth juniper IPA, big bold floral taste. pick some up, very drinkable.

This beer pours a slightly hazy coppery-gold colour with an astoundingly large and impressively well-maintained head. There is a lot of carbonation rushing up the glass.

The aroma is spicy apple and cinnamon with some sharp hops filling out the background. Quite unique, but I'm very impressed.

The taste is a lot lighter and less robust compared to the aroma. Slight sweetness that is quickly taken over by spices and hops. Some slight bitterness and light oily hops finish it out.

Overall, I had really high hopes at first and they were slightly dashed. Nonetheless, this is a unique beer with some unique aromas and flavours. Worth checking out.

pours a dark yellow. it's bottle conditioned, so there's some sediment and it's a little hazy. Was a gusher when I opened it, but the level of carbonation isn't actually insanely high.

Smells fainly of malts, with a decent orange/lemon hoppy zest. A little earthiness, too.

Taste is interesting. It's got a definite yeast presence, almost like a saison, but not nearly as strong. There's not much malt, and a good earthy hoppy twang. Interesting candied orange/lemon combination going on here, coming as much from the yeast as the hops; it's certainly not the prototypical american grapefruit bomb.

Mouthfeel is nice and light, making this a very dinkeable beer, and the moderate alcohol means it's a nice quencher.

Overall - I really like it, but it also doesn't do much to stand out either.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: nice deep amber body with a bone white two finger head; spotty lacing; almost ruddy brown on the second half of the bottle

Aroma: very nice aromatic nose; orange peel spice, a little summer stone fruit with a good touch of spring floral

Flavors: follows the nose, aromatic hops, floral, hint of lemon grass, undertone of stone fruit, light earthy yeast

Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, medium body, light bitterness on the back and aftertaste, light earthy yeast lingers on the palate

To the Point: a tasty ale, sorry it’s not a hop bomb, I will buy a couple more on my next visit.

3.56/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Apearance - Pours a hazy light copper with a 2 finger white head with respectable staying power and good lacing.

Nose- Citrus, pineapple and pine hops with sugary sweet toasted malt and an odd aroma I can only describe as dusty.

Palate- Piney, bitter finish that is short and clean. As for the rest, there seems to be a lack of a malt background to accentuate the hops and leaves this brew a little lackluster.

Mouthfeel- Medium body and carbonation.

Reviewed as Specialty Beer, not American IPA

Very slightly malty, some sweet caramel, a little clove phenol, but surprisingly no aroma hops. Deep golden color, rather cloudy, very rich and creamy head with remarkable persistence. Strong malty start with balanced hops, grainy forward with little floral hop taste. Faint clove phenol and long bitter aftertaste. Slight astringency in sharp aftertaste and fizzy carbonation, medium body.

A different beer, seems like an IPA mixed with a Hefeweizen. Given the name, I expected far more aroma hops.

Not sure what part of Japan this beer was made from, but likely near the site of the compromised Fukusma reactor. Found this on my local managers special table for pick a six. I can see why. This was the worst beer I have ever tasted. I had to spit it out and get a Coors light. I cannot explain the characteristics. It was not good. I hope this batch was just bad. It retailed at $7 for 16.9 oz. I got it for half price. The bottle was just bad.
