2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a gold-orange with a large head. Aroma is of citrus and spice; A little weaker aroma than expected. Flavor is boozy, fruity, and then boozy again, with room for little else. I was hoping for more hop bitterness. Palate is slightly oily, with low carbonation, thin overall. I’m sorry but this is so overhyped. Not bad, but just not the messianic figure that it’s made out to be. My humble opinion. Overall, fair to good.

Pours a beautiful gold, with white head. Aroma of hops and sugars. Taste is hoppy with a mix of complex sugars. A Belgian IPA...very interesting. Thumbs up.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden orange color with a small white head that is gone quickly. A pineapple Christmas tree aroma. Ridiculously fruity as well. The flavor is very spicy Belgian flavor with tons of piny hop goodness. A little bit of that pineapple flavor, but also some apricot doused in the overall sweetness. It is relatively light, but very drinkable and delicious for the high ABV. Finishes dry and bitter. I love it.

Bottle. Pours a smoggy sunshine color with a small foamy head. Flavor is initially a bit chewy and yeasty, but quickly forms a bouquet of fresh hops with lots of citrus zest. Finish is complex and lingering with hints of spice. Medium bodied, a bit chewy. Nicely done.

Pours a cloudy light haze with a thing. Some interesting notes of yeast and spice through in the nose. Flavor has tastey notes of tangy citrus, a bit of funk. The finish is rather dry and tangy. Overall, very enjoyable.

Bomber....obviously. Pours a resinous gold with not much head. Smell is of spice and barnyard funk. Very sweet flavor....to the point of being cloying. Malty, spices, some grass, and some toast. Finish is smooth and enjoyable, though this was better when it came out than it is now, for sure.

Ja wirklich sehr belgisch und sehr gelungen. Kräuterig trocken mit einem wunderbar langen Nachtrunk gesegnet, ist dieser Tropfen trotzdem schön tripelig spritzig und dabei auch noch extrem gehaltvoll. Toll. Getrunken in der Schankwirtschaft HH vom Fass. 0,2l/6Euro.
