martjoobolut (792) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 6, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 03.06.2015. Pours amber with off-white head. The head stays for a long time. Aroma is malt, caramel, herbal, citrus. Flavor is sweet and bitter, caramel, fruits, grass, citrus, grapefruit. Finish is lingering grapefruit and pine bitter. Overall: doesn’t have a lot of typical sorachi ace character (which I like), but maybe this is because the bottle isn’t very fresh. Still it is a solid IPA.

Wombata (456) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2014
Aroma: Buttery, fresh-cut wood, almost bourbon barrel but more subtle (next day I got light vanilla and wood, a good "soapy" floral, buttery character). Palate: Flavor: Buttery, woody, almost vanilla bourbon character, less sweet, moderately roasted caramel with balanced malt and woody finish. Comment: Interesting stuff. I’ve had around 4 beers that feature Sorachi Ace hops and this may be the most intense version. A really unusual hop.

DarkSideOfBeer (45) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 5, 2014
Riempie la bocca dell’aroma tipico del Sorachi ma nonostante ciò risulta leggermente indistinguibile dopo qualche sorso, gusto che definirei burroso ma birra molto utile per isolare e comprendere questo luppolo giapponese!

Niller (707) - Hammel, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from Voldby. Pours amber with a beige head. Aroma of sorachi hops. Bittersweet taste of tropical fruits, hops, caramel notes, grape. Soft carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Slight long botter finish.

rockana (257) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 27, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2014 Pours cloudy honey like color with big tan head. Floating crumbs. Fruity nose. Aroma is flowery, coconut, citrusy, hoppy. More you drink it it gets less bitter. Nice one!

CapFlu (4548) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2014
Large frothy white head atop a clear, highly carbonated reddish hue body. Nose of the Sorachi Ace hop yet not as vibrant and strong as the Brooklyner version. Somewhat an Irish Red malt flavour with yeasty and bitterness. Okay but I’ve had a few better beers with this hop.

alexsdad06 (5556) - Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2014
11.2 oz bottle 2011 from notes. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have grapefruit citrus, pine resin, moderate sweet bread, light earthy notes. Medium bodied. Finishes with more pine, earth, brown bread, moderate bitterness. Hops seem faded a bit.

Good single hop IPA. Sorachi Ace is a nice fruity bitter hop and worthy of a solo career.
