3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Music in Mears. Malts are soft, the sorachi is very front and center with this one. Dry, pine like, a bit of metallic flavor. Dry finish. Not my favorite of the single hop brews, but respectable nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Pours slightly murky orange. Nose is resin, grass, floral, herbs, light sweetness. I cannot describe the nose well because I can only smell Sorachi Ace. Taste is still Sorachi but less than in aroma, resinous hops, caramel malts, decent sweetness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Mikkeller Bar in Seoul. Medium deep amber colour and thin head. Citrus aroma of lemon and pine. Some hop-bitter at start, light body and citrus tastes. Finishes piney flavour of the Sorachi Ace. Overall, I can’t feel the balance so well for IPA, too malty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical - light floral fruitiness with some notes of dill, some citrus - light grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, some caramel and tropical fruitiness with some notes of dill, some citrus - grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness with notes of dill, some citrus hoppyness. Way too much dill in the finish. Curiosity - not enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from The Beerhive.
Big bubbly off white head, good lacing. Body is hazy reddish amber. Nose is a bit vegetal, grass and sweet bubblegum. Flavour is sherbet lemon, grass, bubblegum finish. Light carbonation, mouthfeel is full, a bit oily. Not quite the Sorachi Ace I remember from Brooklyn’s effort.
