350ml Can from Lawson's Station, Kyoto (¥242):
Quite a basic IPA from Yo-Ho & one that wasn't quite as varied or bitter as anticipated going in, there was some earthy bitterness throughout & touches of pine/grapefruit but nothing seemed particularly strong or adventurous. Some background fruits & citrus towards the end made sure it remained pleasant enough but I feel it was definitely missing something.

Thanks to my roomie Sean for this 6oz pour. Hazy ( not turbid, cloudy, or stoild) medium yellow. Intriguing aroma, perhaps Sorachi Ace hops? Low grain flavors, yet a potent hop presence. Medium body, with a clean, dry finish. Solid drinkability, but probable not a beer I'll grab on my own. Worth trying if in the mood for a new thing.

One of the best options in Japan for "local" IPA's. Great nose, decent hop bill, malt-forward in flavor without becoming a Midwest-style mess. This is a nice option to have at the grocery store when Kirin, Sapporo, Ebisu, and Asahi wear out their welcome after a week.

Tried on a recent trip to Japan. An excellent hoppy and floral aroma on opening the can and then wafting up from the glass. In contrast to other reviews of this beer I found it as to be clear and bright with just enough, but not excessive carbonation. Taste was clean with evidence of malt, hints of citrus and pleasant astringency. I was impressed by a good lingering aftertaste.
I tried half a dozen canned beers (I wasn't going to pay the hotel prices) while I was in Japan and this was head and shoulders the best.

The standard here in Japan. Getting better lately, starting to taste like a modern day IPA a bit more. Strong nose, hops hit you right away. Not an amazing IPA but I'll take it.
