Ar: It smells of very sweet citrusy hops. You would think it is an excellent IPA. Lots of grapefruit scents. AP: Very light yellow like a nice white wine or champagne. No head or bubbles. T: If you didnít know this was a mead, you probably wouldnít be able to pin it down. It tastes more like a quite dry cider with a bit of hops. The hops make it taste much more like a beer, or a lager. However, it makes it taste like the kind of beers I donít like (I canít pin the exact type, but to me it is like Yuengling (not good). It gets more hoppy like an IPA the warmer it gets. The hoppiness depends on the sip. P: It is quite dry and move through your mouth easily and smoothly leaving very little of an aftertaste. The slight aftertaste is of hops and light tart citrus. O: It is very unique. However, it tastes like something that seems common, but really isnít. Actually, it is quite complex.

500ml bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow with small fizzy white head. Aroma is floral and piny hopes, with some honey. Taste is like dry hopped sprite. I found it quite good and refreshing. Sweet honey, citrus, pear, and pine.

JPDurden24 (1495) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2013
An IPA mead is a strange one. Lots of honey with some floral hops in the nose. Taste is honey sweetness with a little hoppy bitterness making its way through. Iíd give it more of a rating, but my palate needs the honey side toned down.

Bottle. Poured clear pale color with good legs. Moderate honey and floral hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth rich texture. Medium honey bittersweet flavor with a rich bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Pleasing rich flavor.

jackl (3867) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle. Cheers to Adam for the pour. The appearance is light gold with a tiny whit head. The nose is strong white grape. Some musty muscat. A bit of honeyed croissant. Grape jellies. The taste is more white grape. Quite sweet. Notes of honey. Hints of herb garden, some mint leaf. Hints of tropical pineapple fruits. Medium body. Syrupy. Sweet indeed. Overall, pretty cool stuff.

emacgee (3875) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2013
This was super interesting. Pours a very very light clean pale color with a tint of green. Foamy sticky white head that dissipates quickly. Very nice nose, light honey like sweetness with a persistent fresh hop character and notes of citrus rind (orange most notable). Light body and dry finish. A little bit astringent and green on the finish. Very interesting though......

DiarmaidBHK (3170) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottle from Liquor outlet. Pours light yellow with light carbonation. Big leafy hoppiness on the nose. Lots of lemony citrus on the tongue. Feels like it has a nice balance to it. Dries out the mouth on the finish. Itís different but itís another solid offering from B. Nektar.

Bottle shared with DiarmaidBHK (Thanks!) - so this is an interesting mix. From my experience, mead people and IPA people tend not to overlap. When I heard, IPA, I thought, "oh theyíll have ruined the mead" and from reading comments, IPA folks are thinking the opposite. I think itís a balanced mix, meaning that its hoppy bitter and mead sweet, but not something that would appeal to most folks. The bitterness becomes more pronounced as it goes on. Overall, I get the negative reviews because its not what I was expecting, but I thinks folks are being overly harsh.
