Made to order for the Aldgate pub (Shibuya, Tokyo), this is Baird Brewing's take on an American IPA.

It does a pretty good job of it, with a lovely copper color, and the refreshing hoppy bitterness and citrus/grapefruit character one expects. Although the taste is typically hop-dominated, it adds some other interesting flavors as well, although nothing I could identify so well (it didn't taste particularly malty to me, for instance). There did seem to be a strong taste of cardamom, which gave it a slight bit of Christmas/winter-ale character, without the least bit of cloying sweetness.

All in all a refreshing, interesting, and highly drinkable American-style IPA, and a real credit to Baird (and the Aldgate).
