Bought @ Tamura's in Kailua, HI

Appearance: Copperish orange with a thin lacing.

Smell: Sweet, wheat and citrusy hops.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Mild with a drier and slightly bitter flavor at the end. Grassy aftertaste. Lighter in body with some syrup like flavors toward the end.

Overall: Not a bad attempt at an IPA, but it seemed a bit off. Almost too bitter for my liking.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a very hazy (almost cloudy) medium golden yellow to orange in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a four+ finger tall dense foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to medium sized two finger thick patch with a thick film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: The beer starts out with some moderate to strong aromas of lemon/citrus hops and some lighter aromas of bready malts.There are also some more subtle notes of pine/resin hops. As the beer warms, a strong aroma of yeast becomes apparent and starts to dominate the overall smell.

T: The beer starts out with the flavor of bready malts with some fairly strong flavors of yeast (that yeast flavor has been increasing as the beer warms). There are moderate flavors of lemon/citrus hops with lighter amounts of pine/resin hops. Light to moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: Enjoyable but not the easiest to drink beer - the yeasty flavors in the American IPA style are a little awkward. Glad that I tried this beer and would definitely consider sampling other beers from the brewery - I discovered this one at a Japanese market and bought it on a whim.

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a three finger high off white head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: There are aromas of yeast in the nose along with some hints of lemon citrus hops.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of lemon citrus and a light amount of bitterness along with some hints of yeast.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit chalky on the palate with a high amount of carbonation. The hops lend a lot of crispness to the mouthfeel.
O: This beer isn't as hoppy and bitter compared to other American IPAs, but it's nice to drink and has some interesting flavors.
