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. Niko100 (2980) - Chicago, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2015
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.

2014 draft at HopCat Indy. Sweet/spicy floral nose. Not as hoppy as expected & booze is subtle, but dangerous! Delicious, dangerous brew! kermis (14478) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2015

Bottle shared by Kermis. Slight hazy amber with nice off white head. Lots of herbs and spices, French herbs, basil, light dry sausage, garlic, grass, sweet malts and some nuts, curry. Medium sweet with alcoholic and herbal bitter finish. Over medium bodied with nice fitting carbonation. Decent stuff, slightly too much alcohol but nice aroma. A LOT of herbs though.

From bomber, hazy orange. aroma of cardomon, sweet citrus, mandarin orange. Flavor is similar spiced citrus fruits with some dark fruit mixed in, hats of banana, alcohol, and malts. Really complex ale, pretty good, would probably buy again DWestrick (803) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2015
