3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an orangish hue. Nice dank aroma, mostly grassy hops with light sweetness coming through. Flavor is way hopped. Very very grassy with a hint of pine. Not much honey goodness here. Finishes a bit dank and bitter. Liked the regular hopnoxious meads better.

This one poured a still golden color with no head. Aroma was of dank and fruity hops, and honey in the background. Flavor was a nice blend of honey sweetess and hops flavor and bitterness. An interesting marriage of flavors.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Glass at the Brewpub. It totally escapes my mind how someone could give this one less than a 4. Pale golden, solid color. Aroma is mix of hops, ripe orange and alcohol, very refined, could spend 15 minutes just smelling it. Flavor is similar to aroma, very rich, multilayered, hops and citrus. Palate is very robust, warming and moreish at the same time.

Una hidromiel interesante, aunque no la mejor que hemos probado. Un fantástico aroma, color dorado transparente, sin gas. El lúpulo apenas está presente y deja un ligero amargor que no convence. Mejor las variedades que llevan frutas y especias. Aun así agradable.

Aroma was that of a wet hopped ipa, pine, citrus bitter grapefruit smell. Taste was completely different, the combination of ingredients did not meld together well, it was a mess.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This thing was brutal. Aroma of pine sol and turpentine. Really smells like if I held a match to it that it would start on fire. Taste is quite bitter and piney with a solvent chemical burn aftertaste. Bad

Good base for this mead, I would like this if it was on it’s own. The hops kinda kill it unfortunately. Bummer

Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear dark golden color with good legs that lasted. Moderate to heavy dark honey and floral aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth rich texture. Medium to heavy dark honey sweet flavor with a rich sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Pleasing rich flavor.

Bottle thanks to George. Pours a clear pale gold with no head whatsoever. Aroma is very hoppy with pine, citrus and menthol with a sweet honey backing. Flavor has citrus and bitter pine up front with a honey backing and a menthol aftertaste. Menthol was a bit off putting.
