Citrus reigns in this fruited (daidai and natsu mikan) and hop-forward India Pale Ale. The citrus character is bright, zesty, spicy and quenching. The hop bitterness is firm and exhilaratingly bracing.

Bryan's brewing notes - Shizuoka prefecture, with its temperate climate, is a wonderful location to grow citrus fruit. One of my favorite local fruits to use in brewing is called Daidai. It’s large like a grapefruit but spicier in aroma and much tarter in flavor. It combines gloriously with bright citrusy hops. In fact, you will find it difficult to discern where the hop character ends and the fruit character begins – they are so symbiotically intertwined. That to me is the telltale sign of a well-made fruited beer. It’s tart and spicily aromatic in a way complementary to the daidai. This marriage of citrusy hops and fresh local citrus fruit is sublime!
