COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IPAs are great but sometimes you just donít want the amount of alcohol that comes with most of the good ones. In this spirit we brewed Semiconductor. an IPA designed to be drunk by the gallon, if you are that thirsty.

Tap at GJBF Osaka 2016. Big, pissy nose, lots of tropical fruit, grapefruit. Clear orange. Very pissy flavor, honey malts int eh background, biscuits, grapefruit. NZ hops all the way but they are a bit much for me.

martjoobolut (2891) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle (from edrinks, tallinn). Didnít took notes, but it was golden beer with ok hop profile. The hops were old, but it wasnít too watery. Decent example of this so called "style", but I would need a lot fresher sample to give it more adequate score.

dfearnley (1759) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 9, 2016
Bottle to goblet Consummation: Pepper, wheat, and loads of bitterness. Adjunct: Well, itís just whatís expected in a session IPA, not much depth, but enough flavour to be drinkable; aroma of grapefruit, grass, plum, and flowers; hazy amber with a think bright white ringed head.

Marduk (6153) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear amber color. Medium size, thick off-white head, stays. Fruity, citrus, sweet, malty in aroma. Pine needles, fruity, sweet malts, sweet, citrus in taste. Sweet malts and citrusy pine in aftertaste. Light sweet body. Medium bitterness. Soft carbonation. Goes down easy, but doesnít quench my thirst (and o girl Iím thirsty).

suurjuust (2794) - ESTONIA - MAY 28, 2016
33cl bottle. Clear orange amber beer, white head. Nose is a bit thin, but grassy, fruity, citric, oranges. Flavor is oranges, peach notes, thin malt and caramel notes, citrus, oranges. Hoppy finish, grapefruity and grassy-earthy notes. Very drinkable or thin as all hell, depending on who you ask. Iím leaning towards "drinkable":
