COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Holy Hop, Batman, this beer has aroma." Hops are casted nine different times, itís a breath-deep-and-shudder-with-pleasure kind of scent thatís all from the Citra hops. With a high alpha acid of 11%, Citra has a cacauphony of flavours and aromas --Citrus, passion fruit, grapefruit, lime, melon, lychee fruit, pineapple, mango, and papaya Ė and dominates this beer.

Smashbombs olfactory tropical explosion shockwaves your face every time you lift the meringue foam towards you. Itís like the ecru-coloured top of a beer pie before it gives up and grips the glass. You can see the Victory maltís signature in the amber lights in what is primarily a deep golden beer. And, yes, donít be fooled --thereís malt going on here, too, as youíll see in the firey body of this ale that makes Smashbomb Atomic look like it radiates its own energy.

With the first taste, Smashbombís 70 IBUs are pronounced. This brew is a little bitter, but bitter like a grapefruit with three tablespoons of sugar on top. Itís also incredibly drinkable. The oddity thatíll keep you tipping the glass is that as this citrus peel front subsides, you actually gleen the sweet flavours of the Victory and Crystal malts. Then, as the bread-puddiní bicuity sweetness of the malts are chased by the dry, tropical flavour of Citra and the fruit punch bouquet is all in your face with each sip, itís all is so damn intriguing, youíll be driven to keep on sampling...and sampling.

Lots of citrus on the nose. Clear bronze/orange colour with lots of carbonation. Head fades fast. Tastes quite citrusy with floral notes and pine. Pretty good IPA.

teddybeer (2344) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle. Orangish colour with a creamy and dense off-white head with very good retention and nice lacework. Aroma has notes of resins, light citrus, very fruity and mild caramel. Flavor has notes of different fruits, mainly peaches, oranges, grapefruits; very good maltiness, strong notes of resins hops. The final has a moderate bitterness with a good duration. Very fresh hops, incredible in spite the high distance toured.

355ml bottle from Bierkompass

Bottled(?) 11/06/2013 - Pours orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, exotic fruits, pine, resinous notes and caramely malts. Taste is hoppy, citrusy and fruity with loads of pine, resinous notes and some caramely maltiness. Finish is lingering bitter, hoppy and fruity with notes of gooseberries, citrus, grass and pine. Quite nicely hopped IPA. Would love to try this from a fresh bottle, as itís very good from a slightly older one too.

Douberd (2607) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2014
Bottle at home, 355 ml, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6% Pours a crystal clear beer, deep orange golden in colour, with two fingers of off-white head. Good retention, big wall of lacing left around the glass. Aroma is fruity, with tropical fruits, citrus, orange peel, little mango. Taste of light malts, fruity and very bitter, pine, citrus, a bit of orange peel again. Very intense bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, good carbonation, very dry on the palate. Wow, this was far better than what I was expecting, crisp IPA with very high drinkability.
