1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours turbid canary with big fluffy 3-finger white head. Nose is very floral and spicy, with hops, pale malt, and a touch of sour mashy rock sugars. Tastes very spicy, fruity, tart, floral, with some funky and acidic notes throughout. Very dry, champagny, but I wonder if the degree of tartness is by design or not. Minor edit to add that the repour has little head and the tartness increases with the repour. This one gets even worse with exposure to air.
