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.

Hop_Hedonist (290) - Perth, - MAR 31, 2014
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.

GlassBrass440 (176) - 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 (1567) - 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...

chopperharley (3) - - FEB 20, 2015 does not count
Fruity hops on the nose followed by mild hop taste. The aroma was way bigger than the taste. Short hop aroma with dry finish

Caña en el lúpulo el 06-02-2015. color amarillo pajizo con poca espuma blanca. Aromas y sabores frescos y amargos herbáceos, intensos para sus 4.4 vol. Fácil de beber y refrescante.

belgis (231) - 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 (1333) - 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...
