Courtesy my Secret Santa. Thank you, sir. Meh. I was expecting a lot more from a beer calling itself a hop bomb from the west coast. Aroma was OK. Piney hops and and sticky malt. Pour was a nice burnt orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was sticky and green with the pine and grapefruit hops very muted and muddled with a weird flat ginger ale flavor. Hard to explain. Nice carbonation. Definitely drinkable but there’s a lot better out there.

Flavor is moderate citrus and fruity hops and bitterness, stone fruit, light caramel malt notes, biscuit malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle to glass, slight hazy golden pour. Mainly malty aroma. Thick sweet malt profile balanced by moderately intense hop bitterness. Not bad, not a standout except maltier than most.

Acobreada com pequena formacao de espuma. Amargor persistente, mas algo desagradavel, apesar de agradavel na boca no primeiro gole

Light haze on this gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Fluffy malts bring just a trace of creamy sweetness. Hop spice and pine. Marmalade with a suggestion of fresher orange. Finishes light and hop spicy. Decent.

Citrus and pine mostly. Not bad but also nothing special, especially given how much I like a couple of the regular and session strength hoppy beers they do.

(En fût à la brasserie): Des sucres céréaliers se joignent à des agrumes foncées et un bonne infusion de thé asséchante. C’est juteux, peu résineux et très terreux, presque sulfureux.
