Tåkete brunorange i fargen med tynt hvitt skum. Appelsinskall, grape korn og humlelukt. Stram bitter humle og grape i smaken. Bitterheten sitter godt igjen.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of Benzai. Pours a clear golden beer with a big lacey white head on top. Aroma is rather old, which is a possibility since it’s an import beer. Enfin, dusty aroma, vague hops in the background and a big, fruity yeasty presence alongside some sweet, caramel malts in the aroma. Flavor is nice and bitter, so the bittering hops are still present here. The malts have faded in the background and the yeast has completely disappeared. Nice comeback here, but won’t take the best score ever. Quite ok!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber bottle: Pours a deep golden hue with a big fluffly head and excellent lacing. The aroma has notes of citric and tropical hop esters, slight pine, light rye and biscuit along with a dash of caramel and pepper. The taste is moderately aggressive with the bitterness with a slight metallic and band-aid undertone slightly balanced by grainy malts. The rye is found towards the finish and is kinda harshing my mellow. This was some nice notes but overall seems to clash, the mouth feel and finish needed to be cleaner and/or the hop profile even more fruity..
