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.

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.

Flaska från Mikkeller webshop. Mycket vacker dimmig bärnsten med ett maffigt vit skum. Väldoft speciell doft, granskott, blommig men söt som av körsbär också. Fin sötma som sköljs över med en högst balanserad beska. Perfekt nivå på kolsyran. Mycket bra och lite annorlunda. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 Zavaros, sötét réz, minimális habbal. Illata kapros , gyümölcsös. Alma és mazsolás jegyek. Közepesen keser? és szénsavas. Jó.

Bottle to Sam Adams Boston Lager tulip sorta deal, beer pours an odd sorta dark yellow amber orangey color with a yellowish white head. Strange. It’s cloudy as well. Aroma is dill pickle, pine, citrus and somewhat floral with some malt and caramel in the background. Flavour is vegetal and dill pickle with a nice dose of grass. Malt is there but faint with biscuit and cracker being most up front. There’s lots of familiar flavours and different ones too. Beer is palatable and refreshing, co2 medium, balance is bitter biased. Overall...interesting but I can’t see myself ever using this hop in a homebrew...it’s too weird.

danlo (1503) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2015
330ml bottle from Mikkeller webshop. Orange amber colour, frothy white foam head and aroma of bubblegum, woody, vanilla. Taste is malt caramel, grainy with herbal, spice notes and grassy, woody bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, woody bitter finish. Interesting, quite drinkable.

Tap. Pours slight hazy dark amber with small thick and creamy white head. Aroma is packed with fresh spicy hops. The dill stands out. Grapefruit, slight pine, some caramel malt and slight coco. Taste is spicy dill and sweet coconut finish! Fruity hops, grape, malty sweet backbone. Finish is dry with hoppy bitterness and has a minty touch. Medium to full body for style and oily hops. Really complex for a single hop! One of the best iv’e had.

Tap @ fermentoren. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma is pretty herb-like hop forward with notes of classic pine notes, dill, fresh hops, caramel, citrus fruits and some malty notes. The taste is pretty fresh and bitter with notes of herbal hops, weak dill, caramel, citrus fruits and a weak eucalyptus note as well. pretty smooth and drinkable. Interesting hop.

brnandersen (2298) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2015
33 cl. bottle, poured in to a Tulip. B.B.E. Feb. 17 - does not look retired to me. Hazy amber colour with a golden tint. Dense, creamy off-white head. Fruity aroma with caramel malts, lemons, coconuts and herbal notes. Distinct Sorachi Ace. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a an average carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with lingering c.itrus fruits. Lovely single hop IPA.

From tap at Fermentoren/Aarhus. I don’t 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.
