2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour out of 500 mL bottle, thanks Steve! Clear yellow pour with no head, aroma brought notes of big dank, pine, grass, hints of grapefruit, touch of earth, hints of honey and floral notes, interesting. Taste is sweet orange, grapefruit, some slight pine, biscuit, honey, slight vanilla, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter.

Very meady, not very hoppy. It’s a very nice mead with some hops. That’s about all the is to it.

One of those things you get cuz you’ll probably never see it again and you don’t want to miss it. Mind-blowing it is not. It tastes like a dry hopped Mead... The only real taste is from the hops, it’s 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 it’s 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 - there’s no citrus or bitterness. It’s actually pretty watery and inoffensive. Just nothing noteworthy about this.

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.
