COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep in the labs at TG, through the vaulted door, down the steps, and past the room labeled "Beware the Leopard" lies an experiment forgotten. For over a year it remained dormant, calculating the precise moment of return to unleash the ultimate blend of hops. Finally, escape! This unbridled force descends upon the unsuspecting Masses. Can you handle it?

kraddel (9439) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2018
Bottle (bomber) at home. Pours hazy pale yellowblonde. Medium, but very stable white head. Smell is intense, rich, tropical fruits , stonefruits, aromatic. seemingly clean fermentation profile over a creamy maltyness ( pale malts, of course) . Taste is is reasonable balanced, but more towards the hops than an average Pale Ale. Soft in bitterness, highly aromatic in it's pale malts, but mostly fruity by the hops ( stonefruits, bit tropical ) Easy drinker. At this pricepoint ( in the EU ) it's to expensive for what it is. But we've come a long way since I needed to trade (beer+shipping+packaging+import fee+time ) to get the earlier editions of these series. If this availability thing becomes even better in Europe, (and who knows, BE ?) I might frequently buy these.

ALIBALI (2890) - Kiel, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2018
Der Name Programm!! Eine wahrhaft erhabene, schön trübe, Golden Boy Optik. Und der Geruch!!!❤ !!! Fantastisch bubblegumy, mit fetter Maracujaschlagseite und immer frisch grasig. Klasse!! Der Trunk begeistert ebenfalls auf ganzer Linie. Extrem ausgewogen kommt er daher und aufgrund der extrem fruchtigen Grundausrichtung, hat man das ein oder andere Mal das Gefühl es mit einem NEPA zu tun zu haben😉. Subtil auf der MaltsweetySide, verspielt ananasy und nur am Rande von der Alphasäure gestreift. HIGH DRINKABILITY ALARM🚀!!! Bomber from BEYOND BEER HH.16€!!! Its O.K.!!!🙂
