2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft... Clear and straw-colored with a small, fizzy, short-lived, white head. The bouquet is a disagreeable marriage of green apple and musky/funky hops. Medium to full-bodied and a touch syrupy with only a trace of carbonation. The flavor offers sweet honey followed by a lightly bitter/mostly sweet finish. Note to B. Nektar: Knock it off. This stuff sucks. Cook up more Zombie Killer. Thanks. -Eric

Sample at the DBLDP on 08/31/2014. Pale yellow-gold color with a minimal white head and sparse legs on the glass. Floral and fruity aroma. Medium body with flavors of floral honey, fruit and slight hops. The finish is sweet fruit and grassy hops. Decent overall.

One of those things you get cuz youíll probably never see it again and you donít want to miss it. Mind-blowing it is not. It tastes like a dry hopped Mead... The only real taste is from the hops, itís fairly simplistic and seems unfinished. Though I believe this has been replaced with some other crazy stuff so... It was definitely worth a try, b. nektar can brew the shit out of anything.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
50cl bottle. Small white head that wholly dissipates atop crystal clear pear juice body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, some honey, floral, light grape, grapefruit. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit/orange, light floral, honey. Light-medium body, light stickiness. The combination of flavors clashes rather than merges for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle from Homer321 - thanks LaSean! Pours a clear, very pale yellow gold with some fizzing bubbles initially that quickly settle into nothing. Looks like a white wine, basically. Aroma of florals, grass, straw, earth, and honey. The flavor has more honey, balanced by grass, florals, herbs, and earth. Light-medium bodied, with a vinous, lightly bitter mouthfeel and low carbonation. Not as hop-forward as advertised, but a decent mead. Underrated.

My very first mead, so itís difficult to rate this. I definitely prefer this to an average sake, but give me a beer any day. I have no idea why this one is marketed as an IPA-style mead - thereís no citrus or bitterness. Itís actually pretty watery and inoffensive. Just nothing noteworthy about this.

Bottle @ The Lets do a Chris O tasting. Pours looking like a white wine, big lychee nose, big lychee taste, fruity and sweet but also lip smacking dry as well, fantastic

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin white wine look, no head. Blossoming lychee and rich bitterness already coming through. Cooling bitterness, cloying at times. Easy going mouth-feel. Light limey finish, oddly citrus.
