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.

jbeatty (1098) - 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.

freretoc (828) - 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 !

Renobob (830) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 21, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Grosse attaque sur le houblon, amertume bien présenté tout le long de la dégustation. Arômes d'herbe et de fleur.

Kita (1192) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear deep golden color with medium soapy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of pineapple, passion fruit, peach and caramel. Taste starts with light sweet but rich caramel malt, follows by fruity freshness, spicy mouthfeel and heavy bitter finish with roasty aftertaste. Incredibly rich for session IPA...

Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet grassy, wet hops, caramel malts, sap, leafs, flowers. Taste is mild and slightly dry grassy, hay, lawn, pine needles, sap, caramel, wet hops, bark. Medium to longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Nice enough.

Hotel tasting with Colin Theydon Bois. Almost clear gold beer, good fluffy white head. Palate is light, airy and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Airy malts, semi sweet. A little malt dust. Lemony citrus balanced by dry floralness. Light dry finish. Mild bitter linger. Fine but not that exciting for an 8 wired beer.
