Birra assolutamente fantastica, non troppo amara, sentori fruttati e coinvolgenti. La migliore delle 4 single hop della brew dog a mio parere. davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 12, 2011
On tap at the local taphouse. Great beer, very tasty. Aromas of caramel, vanilla, and oak. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and very long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Dark yellow, cloudy, with a frothy head. ComradeK (1250) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2011
330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy copper gold, with a moderate beige head, which lasts reasonably well, leaving behind a good film of lace. It is an intensely aromatic beer, with sweet blackberry and tokay on the nose, as well as a touch of honey, all overlaid on smooth caramel malt. Despite all this sweetness on the nose, it is intensely bitter up front, with some pine as well as some quite unusual hop flavours, including redcurrant and perhaps a hint of plum. This develops into a silky smooth mid-section, as soft caramel malt blends with hints of port and jam. A very fruity finish has berries as well as more caramel present. This is a very unusual beer. The difference between this and the Citra version is pronounced, showing the immense variety that can be achieved with hops. Rather than delicate bitterness, this beer presents a range of sweet, fruity flavours, which blend very well with the base malt, despite being very unusual flavours to encounter in beer. I love the weirdness of this beer, and it certainly does stand out more than the Citra version, but it is perhaps just a little less well-integrated. bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2011
Keg via a jug during a Tom tutored tasting at the Euston Tap. Amber/gold with a white head. Pungent aroma of pineapple. Lemon tea like citrus bite that is not full on but still very distinctive. I’ve only tried this hop once before in a strong dark mild brewed for a mate’s 50th birthday by Steel City. This is a very different presentation but also surprisingly distinctive. mR_fr0g (12957) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2011
Bit of an unusual not this. Hazy golden orange colour. Aroma of exotic fruit, lime and melon. The flavour is delicate and complex. There are flavour of line and coconut and slightly spicey. This is probably my favourite of the ipa is dead range.

Keg, Sheffield Tap. Moudly orange covered in sex. Gorgeous. But wrong. Like fingering your cousin on a camping holiday Marthinus (276) - DENMARK - APR 28, 2011

Orangey amber colour with a slight haze. Mid sized, firm head. Lychees, nettles and blood oranges -loads of blood oranges- on the nose.Flavour is blood oranges and grapefruit; loads of grapefruit. Long, bitter finish.
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2011 Honey brown-gold opaque. Solid white head. Good lacing. Honey, herbs, cloves, cinnamon, mouldy orange, pomander!. Full mouth feel, smooth round finish. Alcohol numbs mouth and tongue. Smooth, rich, delicious, very interesting. I’d love to try some more beer made with Sorachi Ace... its wacky!
