Bought at an Aeon in Okinawa, Japan.

Only the slightest amount of hazing, golden, decent but thin head. Smell is good, not a lot going on but a decent amount of piney hops with some sweetness and maybe a hint of citrus. Taste is very good for a Japanese IPA. Good amount of hops without too much malt coming through. A bit fizzy for mouthfeel but a good lingering hop piney-ness.

Overall this is a really good Japanese IPA. If I had this in the states I might pass it by with so many good US offerings but as I struggle to find good IPAs in Japan that don't cost 10 dollars a pint at a local craft beer bar, this is a very welcome addition to Aeon's normal stock. I probably rated this a little higher than it deserves just because I'm so happy to find this. Doesn't touch Torpedo or others in terms of price/taste/availability but at about 260 yen a can this has become one of my staples.

Crystal-clear, golden hued body; thick, foamy and fizzy, white head. Nice pine aroma with lots of caramel sweetness. Caramel malt flavors with a terse, almost biting hop bitterness. Medium bodied; slightly coarse; finish begins with a sugary sweetness and ends with a mostly dry character.

A decent IPA that drinks easily enough. It seems decently balanced and has a fair amount of depth as far as flavor and aroma go yet does not set itself readily apart from other IPAs.
