COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Every year we anxiously await the warmer months to unleash this Double IPA, the summer edition of our YuleSmith seasonals. The flavor imparts orange, grapefruit, and tangerine hop notes with earthy, spicy, and resinous pine undertones. A sturdy malt backbone balances out the profound hop bitterness to create a refreshingly assertive and vibrant beer that offers an unapologetically bold expression of fresh American hops.

Bomber split with my good beer buddy ’Wild Thing’. Beautiful deep orange with a firm thick top of rocky white foam. Heady aroma of citrus. Nice dominanct bitter burr. Superb backbone which is angular I firm but well balanced with marmaled fruit and extra orange peel. Bitterness is superbly integrated making a suoer integrated whole.

King_Alex_II (432) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Kind of creamy honey smell. The taste has a body that combines with the hops to a sweetish taste. A little too bitter tart to be balanced. Aggressive feeling that stays in the aftertaste. Not that good.

sudomorph (842) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2015
04/29/14 bottle found cleaning out the fridge. Pours a clear golden colour with an ample, off white head that sticks to the class. Aroma has faded notes of resin, pine, caramel, citrus, and tropical fruits. Taste is balanced but on the sweeter side. Caramel, bread, citrus, pine, resin, and a drawn ing ending. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Resiny texture in the mouth with a dry finish. I’m sure this was better fresh but it isn’t half bad now.
