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.

Refreshing hoppy brew - assertive bitterness which is great for me - low malt - fruity/herbal edge - great taste for lower abv - would like more complexity - nice one.

A perfect session IPA. Would rank alongside a truly meaty double IPA, but with a clean palate and head for a long day

explosivedog (357) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 15, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours very pale with small quickly dissipating head. Aroma is big hops; there’s plenty of grass, orange and tropical fruit. Taste is mango and a little orange. Only problem is it is very watery, and the aftertaste is slightly metallic.
