COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IPAs are great but sometimes you just don’t 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.

belgis (179) - LATVIA - JAN 31, 2015
Fresh zesty aroma. Almost no foam and it disappeared fast. Murky color. Balanced bitterness with fresh start and longlasting mild bitterness. Very nice and refreshing.

Lore (1271) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 16, 2015
clear golden colour, huge, not too dense and less stable white head; aroma of orange zest, some grapefruit, grassy notes, some tropical fruits and minimal caramel malt; taste is dominated by hoppy bitterness (with grapefruit, some tropical fruits and orange zest) without however enough ’body’ - so the malt backbone is somehow missing...

anstei (74) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 15, 2015
330ml bottle from New World Hokitika. Hoppy but light session IPA as a session should be. I would put this on any session I’m hosting.

jbeatty (1104) - New York, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Draft, 11/14/2014. Pours a clear amber color, frothy white head with great retention. Aroma is grapefruit, melon, pear, clean pale malts, freshly cut grass. Taste is tangerine, toasted caramel malts, grapefruit and lingering pine bitterness. Light body. Nice, bold flavor for the lower ABV, though even so perhaps a bit too aggressive with the pine.

Beer tasting from a bottle at Tap 66, Xiamen. Pours clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, citrus and pine. Sharp dry very bitter finish.

freretoc (915) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 21, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur blonde, belle mousse effervescence moyenne, une bière très peu alcoolisée mais très très longue en bouche, avec un côté citronnée de fleur jaune, de sureau, de litchi et de passion !
