JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2013
An IPA mead is a strange one. Lots of honey with some floral hops in the nose. Taste is honey sweetness with a little hoppy bitterness making its way through. Id give it more of a rating, but my palate needs the honey side toned down.

Tmoney99 (14196) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear pale color with good legs. Moderate honey and floral hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth rich texture. Medium honey bittersweet flavor with a rich bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Pleasing rich flavor.

jackl (7563) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle. Cheers to Adam for the pour. The appearance is light gold with a tiny whit head. The nose is strong white grape. Some musty muscat. A bit of honeyed croissant. Grape jellies. The taste is more white grape. Quite sweet. Notes of honey. Hints of herb garden, some mint leaf. Hints of tropical pineapple fruits. Medium body. Syrupy. Sweet indeed. Overall, pretty cool stuff.

emacgee (4661) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2013
This was super interesting. Pours a very very light clean pale color with a tint of green. Foamy sticky white head that dissipates quickly. Very nice nose, light honey like sweetness with a persistent fresh hop character and notes of citrus rind (orange most notable). Light body and dry finish. A little bit astringent and green on the finish. Very interesting though......

DiarmaidBHK (4518) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottle from Liquor outlet. Pours light yellow with light carbonation. Big leafy hoppiness on the nose. Lots of lemony citrus on the tongue. Feels like it has a nice balance to it. Dries out the mouth on the finish. Its different but its another solid offering from B. Nektar.

magsinva (1207) - Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottle shared with DiarmaidBHK (Thanks!) - so this is an interesting mix. From my experience, mead people and IPA people tend not to overlap. When I heard, IPA, I thought, "oh theyll have ruined the mead" and from reading comments, IPA folks are thinking the opposite. I think its a balanced mix, meaning that its hoppy bitter and mead sweet, but not something that would appeal to most folks. The bitterness becomes more pronounced as it goes on. Overall, I get the negative reviews because its not what I was expecting, but I thinks folks are being overly harsh.

Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Draft at soup spoon (from backlog). Smells like an appley IPA. No head and smooth texture. Way too sweet for me. The IPAness was completely dominated by the mead.

Intriguing aroma and thin yellow pour with a too sweet to be hoppy taste and mild mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (4566) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours a clear pale yellow from the bottle with thin ring of white foamy head. Aroma is pure sweet white wine, taste follows with a hint of earthiness. This tastes like a Riesling repackaged, I dont think they hit what they were going for.

wmubronco1992 (709) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow. No head. Aroma of honey. Taste is of piney hops meeting sweet honey. Honestly is kind of a weird combo. Leaves an interesting dry somewhat bitter finish. Medium palate. Mild bitter mouthfeel. I was very curious about how this would turn out, but the anticipation was better then the reality. I didnt think the bitter & sweet worked very well. In the end it is interesting, but not genius.
