Okay. I need to get one thing straight first: you can not expect a full-on craft beer in the same exact way as it is in the US. You just simply can’t, and not (just) because of the craft or technologies but because of the ingredients, the air, the water, the sunshine etc. It just won’t be the same.
So when I see an Amber Ale (labeled as a “Red IPA”...) made in Japan, I start having doubts - which turn out to be valid in the end. Because no matter how much they are going to try to make this right, it is always going to be a far cry from those outstanding ones that I had from the States. Point blank.
Sorry, not too much more to add.
Try harder? Or give up trying whatsoever? I would vote for the first one.
