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.

The aroma is full of caramel, dried fruits and butter. The color is murky and reddish caramel. The taste is full of dried fruits, caramel and butter. Very reminiscent of a barley wine, oddly enough. A nice beer though.

Bottle in Seattle. Thanks Julie. Darker mahogany brown, soapy foam. Earthy caramel. Clean IPA. Tasty, Sorachi Ace better here than most anywhere. Butter, earthy, a little spice. Nice.

Mörkt bärnstensfärgad med stort vit skum. Doftar och smakar faktiskt ganska mycket kokos! ? Ok beska men lite för maltig

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has some caramel and something I cannot really describe, herbal/medicianl/liquorice/root beer. Taste follows with the same notes, slightly sweet at first but gets more bitter towards the finish. Soft body and carbonation. It’s more like an amber ale but it doesn’t really matter as long as it’s tasty.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2015 Bottle bbe 12.02.17. Orange beer with a nice off white head. Aroma is dominated by coconut, pine and malty sweetness. Taste is hoppy with coconut, caramel and pine, medium bitterness. Very nice IPA that is pretty special in aroma and taste thanks to the Sorachi Ace hops, could be a little bit more bitter. A great relief from the majority of citrus flavour dominated IPAs.
