Great flowery hoppy smell, light head, light body, golden color, but a great hoppy IPA. Not very sweet and a good balance between hop and body. This is almost a standard IPA that you definetly should try at the first available opportunity.
The can had me, i must admit. I was expecting something of interest like the Sheaf Stout from Australia and i think my hunch was right. This porter is fairly malty with a slight undertone of the regular black malt. Not exactly what i go for in a porter. Under the government warning sticker was a website, www.yonasato.com , the only english on the can besides Tokyo and Porter.
Not my favorite brewery. Not my favorite pumpkin pumpkin beer. I think what i want in a beer is a thick ale that resembles a pureed pumpkin pie in a glass. As typical, this is a wheat beer. Clean finish, not very spiced, and over all not a winner.
