COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A tractor-trailer sped 2400 miles through the night to deliver American Oak barrels to the Fort George Brewery, staves still engorged with Kentucky Bourbon. Seventy-two hours after being emptied at the distillery these barrels were harboring a winter wonder, working their alchemy on the hop and barley elixir nestled within. With the addition of more hops as the beer left the barrels, North VII was born – fully aromatic and pungent with vanilla, bourbon, oak and flowery lupulin magic.

On tap at the brewpub in Astoria, OR. Aroma: malty, citrusy, and slightly skunky, with hints of banana, orange, and caramel. Taste/Palate: sweet and creamy; finishes slightly bitter. This may be the most interesting beer I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.

Poured from the tap at the Brewery in Astoria. Aroma is fruity, orange like in scent. First flavor is very "wine-like" to me. Has hints of butter, cream and caramelized banana. Definitely has a Belgium after taste to it, but not your typical Belgium skunk...more like a pleasant sweet skunk.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2014 25/X/14 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle from a trade @ The Autumn Gathering formerly known as RBBAG Mons (Gent) - BB: n/a, but pretty fresh, straight from the States! (2014-1266) Thanks to bigmanlavos for the trade!

Clear orange beer, big irregular yellowish head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, grapefruit, pineapple, sweet, grassy, passion fruits. MF: ok carbon, full body. Taste: bitter, some orange peel, citrus, very resinous, piny notes. Aftertaste: citrus, fruity, pineapple, bit malty, grapefruit, bitter, sweet, some orange peel, caramel. Probably one of the best B.A. ipa’s I’ve ever had (even if that’s not really a lot).

Thank you tderoeck! Tasting glass from 650 ml. bottle consumed @ “The Tasting formerly known as Mons RBBAG I (2014)”. Hazy orange, creamy white head. Very fruity, orange nose, light herbs, juicy grapefruit, vanilla. Taste is creamy orange, light peel, very fruity, biscuit, vanilla, lollipop, lots of sugar, biscuit, oak, sugar, light bitter in the back. Thick creamy body. It seems like I really like BA IPA’s. This is awesome.

Bomber. Aroma of pine and oak, citrus and hops. A nice bright flavor, grapefruit, oaky components that add depth. I really like this.

bhensonb (11512) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bomber from the late, perhaps lamented, LetsPour.com. Pours hazy orange gold with a slight white head. Aroma of treacle and citrus. Sort of a bakery aroma. Full bodied I’d say. Flavor is woody, fruity, citrus, woody, maybe bourbon. Yea, some bourbon. And the oak really come through in the finish. If this isn’t dank, it’s got to be close. Ton of hop. No trace of heat. Head bending flavorful ale. Woot. Other words of approbation.

On tap at bier thirty. Pours out a muddy golden topped with a small sand head. Nose is pine caramel malts oak barrel and citrus. Taste is as the nose with barrel citrus and a good bitterness and sweetness on the end.
