PhillyCraft (5761) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle with Frank and Bill compliments of Flandersned. Pours a murky orange gold color with no head or lacing. Notes of grape candy, wood, blood orange, perfume musk, and very rich, sugary, honey. I get a little amarillo but mostly dank smelling, and tasting earth honey. As it warmed it smelled like a fine indian black tea. Fuller bodied. Interesting mead for sure.

daknole (10872) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Clear yellow/gold. Very floral, both from the honey and the hops. Smells better than it tastes. I am not a huge fan of this. The hops seem to fight the honey and sweetness. Not a lot of cohesion.

thirdeye11 (6069) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2011
(187ml bottle from Epic Mead Tasting 2011, thanks in part to blutt59 and Mora2000) clear gold/copper with nice coating on the glass, but no real legs. Nose of orange pulp, honey, grapefruit and a bit herbal. Taste of citrus, orange, cinnamon, spicy bite, mildly bitter and easy to drink. Linger of honey and citrus on the palate.

Mora2000 (6155) - McKinney, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Thanks to blutt59 and thirdeye11 for going in with me on 16 Kuhnhenn meads. This was part of an epic 20 mead tasting. A hopped mead? Should be interesting. Pours a golden orange color. The aroma is heavy on the amarillo hops. I get some orange citrus notes as well as a little bit of pine and some honey notes. The flavor is more of the same. I get some sweet, sugary honey notes which go very well with the pine and orange notes from the hops. Medium mouthfeel.

Cavie (4305) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle courtesy the great mead trade of 2011. (thirdeye11, blutt59, mora2000.) Pours a clear yellow gold color. I’m just going to start leaving off the no carbonation thing but you get my idea. Aroma is very hoppy. Hopped smell with spice and earthy leaves. Flavor is very sweet honey with a large flavor and sense of hops. Interesting to say the least. Very interesting.

Bottle at James’ mead tasting. Pours a clear golden orange. Sticky honey and subtle citrus and very light toast. Warm honey and very light toast and hops. Soft bitterness starts early and balances lightly with the sweetness.
