COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Holy Hop, Batman, this beer has aroma." Hops are casted nine different times, it’s a breath-deep-and-shudder-with-pleasure kind of scent that’s all from the Citra hops. With a high alpha acid of 11%, Citra has a cacauphony of flavours and aromas --Citrus, passion fruit, grapefruit, lime, melon, lychee fruit, pineapple, mango, and papaya – and dominates this beer.

Smashbombs olfactory tropical explosion shockwaves your face every time you lift the meringue foam towards you. It’s like the ecru-coloured top of a beer pie before it gives up and grips the glass. You can see the Victory malt’s signature in the amber lights in what is primarily a deep golden beer. And, yes, don’t be fooled --there’s malt going on here, too, as you’ll see in the firey body of this ale that makes Smashbomb Atomic look like it radiates its own energy.

With the first taste, Smashbomb’s 70 IBUs are pronounced. This brew is a little bitter, but bitter like a grapefruit with three tablespoons of sugar on top. It’s also incredibly drinkable. The oddity that’ll keep you tipping the glass is that as this citrus peel front subsides, you actually gleen the sweet flavours of the Victory and Crystal malts. Then, as the bread-puddin’ bicuity sweetness of the malts are chased by the dry, tropical flavour of Citra and the fruit punch bouquet is all in your face with each sip, it’s all is so damn intriguing, you’ll be driven to keep on sampling...and sampling.

Trolleo (3726) - Manchester / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 19, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2019 Bottle in Craft Room. Peach galore, tropical notes and mango as well. Clear golden color with medium to big sized white head. Nice and fruity, but also has that old peach side. Medium body, average carbonation. Nice and drinkable, but too much peach and caramel. Wish it was fresher.

GDTRFB (6779) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 23, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2019 Pours deep gold into a tulip. White soapy head with good retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Pine aromas. Soft with caramel and pine turning crisp in the lasting pith finish.

AgentAle (2209) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 23, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2019 Aroma is citrus, honey, and clove. Taste is subtle. A mild creaminess, honey and very subtle earthiness. Surprisingly, not that hoppy .

One of the coolest looking cans I have seen! Pours a deep gold color with a slight haze. One finger foam head with amazing retention. Nose is subtle but has some pine and floral notes. Taste is some caramel and citrus. Slight hops on the finish. Overall, medium body, fairly easy to drink. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmgreenuk (12944) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 18, 2018
Bottle at the Rehab Station, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Poured a hazy medium amber with a lasting frothy white head. The aroma is toffee caramel malt, light fruit, light resin hop. The flavour is moderate sweet with a smooth, rich, toffee malt, fruity, light metallic, light dry floral hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average to soft carbonation.

ricardostercios (336) - - OCT 13, 2018
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2018 Color naranja, translúcida. Espuma blanca escasa con buena retención. Aroma escaso, a resina y maltas. Sabor más maltoso de lo esperado aunque enseguida aparece el amargor agradable que iba buscando. Textura oleosa y chispeante.

3.3
ogivlado (9690) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 24, 2018
Canned 473ml. -at Svijet Piva Zagreb. Golden coloured, small to medium sized white head, light citrusy nose. Moderate malty, biscuity, light caramel, slightly citrusy and herbal with dry bitterish finish. Pretty boring.
