PBF. Hazy yellow color, small white head. Citrusy-lemony aroma, grassy hoppyness. Nicey grassy, lemony (lemongrass!) flavor. Good backing maltyness. Sweetness. Some alcohol. Strong golden ale? Pleasant, but simple.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Yellow colour, small head. Aroma is very much a Belgian tripel, and flavour much the same. A quite balanced and nice tripel. Pleasant thing.

In the bottle from Tampa Total Wine. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Pomegranate and pine aroma. A bit thin and boring in body. Has even hop flavors throughout- Amarillo or Simcoe? An OK beer, but not outstanding.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml from World of Beer/Tampa. Pours a very cloudy amber with a big white head. Aroma is hops, oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and maybe some peaches. Flavor is grapefruit, peaches, finishes in a fair amount of pepper and a little hop bitterness. Light/medium mouthfeel with a nice peppery warmth. The flavor was a bit of a letdown following the great aroma...

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had a 750 oz bottle. poured a murky, golden color with a medium white head. Aroma was a sweet, grapefruit, cherry, earthy smell. It smelled great. Taste was a bit light in flavor though. grapefruit, with citrus, pepper notes to it. Palate was real watery, light mouthfeel, alcohol warms you up a bit but also clamy. It was decent but i was disappointed in this brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a nice head to it. Has a citrus hop aroma with a little Belgium yeast in there. Taste is the same and it finishes nice and crisp. Not a bad brew but seems more like an IPA than anything. Wasn’t what I was expecting.

Bomber. shared with potbeercollege. poured a hazy squeezed juice color, with a thin white head. big pine and floral aromas. taste: sticky pine, hop bitterness, awesome hop flavor, almost like you can chew on the greens, little grapefruit zest at the end, nice dry finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a bright straw gold with some haze and a turbulent carbonation. Head forms unrestrained and easily occupies half of the volume of the glass, sticky billowy white. First whiff is very nice, intermingling of fresh resinous and citrusy hops and earthy/funky Belgian yeast giving the impression of Mandarin orange flesh, pink grapefruit, hibiscus and white pepper. Flavor retains most of the positives of the aroma, citrusy, with a nice pepper character, dry with some lemon zest. Palate is very nice and dry exhibiting a lively carbonation. Thoroughly enjoyed.
