3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml bottle shared by Cuso at Bratislava Tasting, thanks!
Amber, hazy body, with a quite small, creamy, off-white head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, resin, orange zest, some biscuit.
Taste follows this, with a pretty strong, dry bitterness.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes very bitter, very dry, zesty, a bit piney, a bit herbal.
Nice one. Lots of fruity hops, but too bitter and dry for me. I prefer it more balanced. Still a very characterful IPA.

Nez fruité et herbeux avec une robe orangée. En bouche les arômes résineux dominent et laissent place à une forte amertume, persistante, peut-être trop.

Bomber from Broue Ha Ha. Nice amber pour with a creamy light biege head. May be drinking this with a bit of cold so the nuance is a little lost but it’s a very nicely balanced resiny and light tropical hop, full bodied bitterness and a smooth and well carbonated mouth feel, becomes dry with a bitterness becomes a tad astringent at first but then just becomes delicious. Yummy.
