Dégustée chez Janick en compagnie de Marc-André, Stéphane et Roger, Cheers! De cette bière peu foncée aux reflets orangés, émanent d’étonnantes arômes mentholés et épicés. Je perçois du gingembre, beaucoup de fleurs, des herbes qui par moment me rappellent la lavande et même du dentifrice. En bouche l’alcool est bien présente et le liquide est un peu lourd, malgré la forte présence d’herbes qui devraient normalement attendrir mon palais. Très épicée, assez effervescente mais fatigante à boire, le fond de mon verre s’est retrouvé dans le buisson pour faire place au Magnum de Cantillon qui m’interpellait curieusement davantage...

Apparently bottled 7/17/2015 enjoyed 8/22/2015 in a Hopslam tulip/snifter. Look - Finger of off white head. Settles to a ring and leaves blotchy lacing. Fine, medium, and large bubbles. Bright but translucent dark orange body. Smell - Ginger. Biscuit. Booze. Floral. Nose deep in it picks up dank hop and grapefruit. Banana. It smells chewy. Taste - Ginger overpowers everything else. Caramel. Biscuit. Floral. Booze. Feel - Heavy. Juice up front, dries up quickly. Spice and alcohol burn. Overall - I drank this earlier than planned because figured was hop forward like most Floyds. Hops on nose. Ginger beer. I wish Alpha Kong and Alpha Klaus would switch names.

Hazy amber/orange color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of sweet malt, yeast, caramel, & fruit/citrus; Flavor of sweet malt, yeast, caramel, molasses, fruit/citrus, hops, and spice; Warm finish; Considering the alcohol it’s fairly well hidden; Quite sweet & somewhat strange offering.

AzProTrader (3) - Powell, - AUG 19, 2015 does not count
2014 draft at HopCat Indy. Sweet/spicy floral nose. Not as hoppy as expected & booze is subtle, but dangerous! Delicious, dangerous brew!
