Hitachino Nest Dai Dai IPA

IMG_3636

NAME: Kiuchi Brewery Hitachino Nest Dai Dai IPA
TYPE: “IPA”
ORIGIN: Japan
ABV: 6.2%
REVIEW: Golden brown, slightly opaque, sweet tart smell. Bitter up front, then slow sweet finish with notes of honey, pine, and orange zest. Hardly hoppy at all, this tastes more like a saison to me… but a good saison. Don’t really know how this qualifies as an IPA, but it’s interesting. Like the white ale the flavors are subtle, but subtle is not the adjective I look for in an IPA. Not gonna lie, I’m a little disappointed.

goodwilltasting grade: B-
