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.

On tap @ Csakajósör - Beautiful amber colour witha small but long lasting white head. Nice hoppy aromas with citrussy and resinous scent. Grapefruit, mango and grapes ca be noticed with a bit of grassy sidetaste. The malt stays in the background, lively carbonation, light to medium body. The abv is relatively low, I could drink this again and again. A really nice session beer for hop lovers.

Koelschtrinker (12453) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 20, 2015
Frischer, nussig hopfiger Antrunk. Intensive Herbe, die den Hopfen etwas übertrumpft. Die Bitterkeit ist dagegen überschaubar, etwas trocken, dennoch süffig. Hopfig herbes Ende. 7/10/11/10/9/10

GlassBrass440 (274) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 15, 2015
Pours a coper gold with a forced head that dissipates quickly. Nice fruity hop aroma. Mango and tangerine. Flavor is grassy and fruity. Bitterness is not overdone which is nice, but the body is a bit thin. Clean finish.

McNeillR (1678) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Pale clear golden. Soft glint of a white head. Peachy lemon and greasy grass nose. Stern bitterness, lime and pine with a pulsing carbonation. Long riding bitter finish. Decent enough for the ABV, perhaps not the price...
