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.

freretoc (781) - 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 !

Kita (1155) - 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...

madmitch76 (15806) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014

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.

Dunkel lys gyllen farve med lust skum. Lukt av lys malt, sitrus og humle. Smak av grapefrukt, sitrus, humle og krydder. Lett bitter humleavslutning. Vaaland.
