The other day I visited ICN Cafe for a chat with a friend in the afternoon and I took advantage of one the craft beers they serve there!
ICN cafe is a bar/cafe I would recommend to people in search of some welcome quietude away from the crowds around a beer, some tasty Italian fare or just a coffee in a space which has a lot offer.
They do have the merit to serve a whole range of bottled beers all day long and I’m pretty grateful for the fact that they offer a brand by Baird Beer Co., arguably the most famous brewery in our Prefecture!
Suruga Bay Imperial IPA!
Ingredients: Barley, malt, hops, Sugars, Yeast
Clarity: slightly smoky (normal considering live yeast and being unfiltered), very clean
Bubbles: Short head, fine bubbles, white
Color: Orange/persimmon color
Aroma: Deep, dry and fruity aroma. Oranges
Taste: very refreshing, beautifully dry attack backed with lots of fruit and just the right amount of welcome acidity
Complex: oranges, persimmons.
Lingers long enough for true tasting before departing with more dry oranges and hints of apricots.
varies little with food but for a drier note.
Overall: A magnificent beer.
Easy to drink in spite of high alcohol content.
A craft beer for all seasons which should appeal to anyone!
