On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room, Sacramento. Pours amber with a clinging off-white head and a citrus and banana aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a dry bitter finish. There is an extra layer of yeast influence, as this is the standard Hoptologist recipe with the addition of Belgian yeast.

Bottle: The aroma consists of tropical fruits, pineapple, candi sugar, and citrus/grapefruit. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a small soapy off-white head. There’s a good amount of thin webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with tropical fruits, faint banana, and candi sugar. The finish has moderate spice, grapefruit, and a hint of lemon peel. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation.

joeneugs (3108) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 26, 2013
22 oz. bomber fresh. It pours a dark orange color with a small off white head that lingers. The aroma is not what I expected. Lots of lime and candy sugar. Some mild florals and caramel malt. The flavor is sweet and candy like with lime, citrus, caramel, florals, clove and a rather off putting phenolic and alcohol character that makes this a bit difficult to drink. Barely passable as something that I would drink…. poured out about 6 ounces of the bomber. I was hoping for a drier, hoppier beer.

bytemesis (2952) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving a ring of foam and decent lacing. Aroma is an interesting mix of citrus, mango, belgian yeast, touch of funk. Flavor is about the same, light sweet, medium bitter, yeasty. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. In my opinion this one is too far on the "Belgian" side. The hop presence is limited to a single note "bitter" rather than the citrus/floral medli that you get from the regular hoptologist.

27 sept 2013, bottle. Light gold, clear, occasional bubbles. Nose is golden syrup, pine hops, some sweet yeast. Med body and mildly fizzy. Grassy hops, cereal malt, mild bitter finish. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jazz88 (2542) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle. A dark golden color with a white head. An intense dry pine aroma and finishes with a touch of Belgian sweet candy aromas. Rough, dry, bitter and intensely hopped on the palate. What’s not to like.
