On keg, but did smell a bit old initially, then as it warmed up, the sorachi influence came through on both the aroma and flavour. A good IPA, but not as good as the Brooklyn version.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at craft beer co holburn. Hazed bright orange coloured pour with a lasting off white froth. Aroma is odd mix of sharp lemon citrus, little hot alcohol, dill, sandalwood. Not classic sorachi on the nose. Flavour is composed of spicy citrus lemon, hints of coconut, lime, light grains, little bready. Sharp and zesty lemon in the finish with a little wood tannin in the finish. Aggressive relatively clean hop bitterness. Palate is grainy, high carbonation, little spritzy, to drying finish. Sorachi ace seems to have changed a bit for the negative. Maybe this isn’t the vest showcase for this hop. Maybe a hint of Brett in this .

Lemon grass & juniper berry nose. Distinctive smooth vanilla & gin taste with an earthy bitterness. Good use of this unique hop.

Bottle. Hazy bronze body with a thin white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, cat litter, Refreshers and flower petals. Flavour of dusty malts, lemon and tomato juice. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A hefty 7.8% ABV but it’s very well disguised. Nice beer.

Bottle from Junkyard Nottingham. Wonderful flavour, hate using the word unique but this beer is. Lovely long after-taste with an easy drinking quality. At 7.4% you wouldn’t know. Yum!
