Vestergaard (675) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2015
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours an orange amber with a small, white, dense head. Aroma has a lot going on, sweet bourbon-like vanilla, herbs, dill, caramel, sorachi ace hops, malty backbone, mint. Taste has some hoppy bitterness up front, but also a complex mix of the dill spicyness and the bourbon-like sweetness. Ends off very smooth and sweet. Really complex beer for being a single hop ipa! Love this hop! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

markextrae (1591) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2014
bottle at a bar, poured a murky amber colour with a white head. lot of malts in the nose, caramel, small hint of pines, grass, flowers, some bitter grapefruit and citrus, recognize the sorachi, but have seen beers that are brewed better with the use of this hop, kind of a murky mouthfeel, but maybe it’s because it’s just a bit to old. nobody will know

martjoobolut (1248) - 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 (472) - 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 (47) - 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!

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!
