COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Another Big Sister of the Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale…. Loads of Malted Wheat for a Curious Malt Foundation and a Light Color, But Our Belgian Yeast Leaves a Huge Flavor and Complexishness.

Pours an clear orange/yellow with good head and lacing. The aroma is floral hops and a background malt. This tastes like a delicious IPA with a hint of Belgian yeast. Super good and surprising. I got this on tap and I didn’t know the style when i was drinking it so I assumed it was an IPA. Really good.

Bomber poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a hazy copper orange with a strong one finger white head that leaves light lacing down the glass.

S - Strong hop aroma consisting of spicy, resiny, hops with a hint of the alcohol that is contained in this one. A little sweetness from the malt and a little yeast? A good nose but not great.

T - Plenty of spicy, resiny, hops that leave a nice bitter feel on the pallet. Lots of sweet malts with a touch of bready yeast. Finishes with a strong, dry, taste from the alcohol. Pretty good taste but a tad on the boozy side.

M - Sticky sweet with medium flavor and body. Moderate carbonation with a good balance of flavors.

D - Fairly good offering. I liked this one but I don’t think I would sit down and drink a bunch of these all at once.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with light head. Aromas of malts, bread/sourdough, oranges and a bit of funk. Flavors of pine, orange marmalade and toasted malts with floral/herbal notes. Biscuity bitter finish.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Citrus, pine, and some bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice pine note.

jsnicholas (135) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle (12oz): Golden pour with one finger head. Quite a bit of malt and sweet in the finish. I know a lot like this, but not one of my favorites.

tmm313 (55) - Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Aromas- Tropical fruit and pineapple dominate. Orange, peach, fresh hops, a little pine, a touch of caramel, and earthy hop spices. Very inviting. After the glass was empty, the residue smelled like bananas. Taste- Sweet tropical fruit, grapefruit, orange, and light pine up front. Resinous pine, some earthy hop spice, grapefruit, and rind on the finish. Awesome caramel backbone flows underneath basically from beginning to end. Palate- On the thicker side of medium. Oily and resinous with nice carbonation. Coats the entire mouth. Nice lingering bitterness without being too much.
