[GBBF 2016, Olympia] - Sadler’s Ales Hop Bomb, 5%. Strohgelb, leicht trüb. Mildes, leicht süssliches Aroma nach Zitrusfrüchten mit einer schmalen Fichtennote im Hintergrund. Mittlerer Körper, kaum wässrig. Im Antrunk fruchtig und bitter: Grapefruit, Nadelholz, Kräuter. Mitte Floral mit Zitronnenote, weiter Nadelholz, im Abgang dann sehr bitter hopig, Ein wenig Harz dazu. Nachhall milde nach Fichtenharz mit Zitrone. Ausgewogenes, vielschichtiges IPA. Gelungen.

Nurmis (343) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours amber. Mainly citrus with floral notes too. The hops is real, but otherwise the aroma feels "thin". On the sweeter side for APA.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2016 Awesome label. Pours pale yellow with perfect white head. Smell is potently citric. Hits of grape, green apple and grapefruit. Taste is tangy and bitter. Hops dominate over the caramel malt. Nice astringent pine and stingy lemon into the finish and long after. Wet finish. It’s not the tropical hop bomb of say Punk IPA or Torpedo but it’s not far behind. Excellent.

500ml bottle from Alko. Clear golden color with white head going down quickly. Low carbonation. Despite the label this isn’t really hoppy. Medium bitterness, light body. Smells bad, cab’t even describe what it is.

Golden body, white head. Aroma is malty and pungent. Quite nice and mediocre.

500ml : Hop Bomb ? Hop fart is more like it . I was fooled by the cleverness in a simplistic name and superb images of hop power on the God damn bottle . This suffers from being too malt nuanced , toffee covered in skunky notes ... Sure hops are floral but the dry accent I crave in APA is acute on my palate Its not a bad beer , but annoying that I bought several bottles. Might make an ok black IPA mix with stout as a redemption !
