2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From tap at Fermentoren/Aarhus. I donít know if this was simply not a fresh batch, but what a dissapointment. Some citrussy and grassy notes but other thatn that almost nothing interesting to notice. Of course it did not help that it was served way to cold, but anyways this simply did not do the trick for me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 itís because itís just a bit to old. nobody will know

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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: doesnít have a lot of typical sorachi ace character (which I like), but maybe this is because the bottle isnít very fresh. Still it is a solid IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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).
Flavor: Buttery, woody, almost vanilla bourbon character, less sweet, moderately roasted caramel with balanced malt and woody finish.
Comment: Interesting stuff. Iíve had around 4 beers that feature Sorachi Ace hops and this may be the most intense version. A really unusual hop.

Riempie la bocca dellíaroma tipico del Sorachi ma nonostante ciÚ risulta leggermente indistinguibile dopo qualche sorso, gusto che definirei burroso ma birra molto utile per isolare e comprendere questo luppolo giapponese!
