Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a two finger ivory head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of pale malt, citrus and grassy hops, orange and light lemon citrus, lightly floral. Flavor is mildly caramel malt, citrus hops, grapefruit, orange and lemon citrus with some estery fresh orange flavors, a hint of honey sweetness; finishes with resinous piney and citrus hops and a little more lingering estery fruit. Medium bodied with light creaminess. A very nice, hoppy IPA. The malt and base hops are very much an American profile, with a little grassiness from noble style hops. The light estery fruit flavors really add a pleasant not to this and enhance the hop bitterness in the finish. Really quite enjoyable and a bit of a surprise, considering how much traveling this did to get here. I'm impressed and look forward to trying other ales from this brewery.

From 09/2716 notes. Bottle into a chalice with the brewer at a Sushi Sake-beer pairing at Sushi Seki in NYC....pretty cool.

Taste is a bit maltier, than the nose but some nice citrus hops. Apparently one of the hoppiest Japanese beers.

I had this beer at an amazing sushi restaurant in Atlanta. The place had a selection of hard to find Japanese craft beers, and this one caught my eye. It is a clear gold color with a frothy white head. The aroma is floral, and the taste was, although clearly hoppy, very subtle. Sweeter, more flowey, and delicate than most IPA's, this was still notably flavorful and good.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and grapefruit juice aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus fruit, citrus zest, and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with nice citrus forward hop characteristics all around.

Serving type: bottle.
