Biscuit laced with funk and light fruit dominate the nose.
The beer pours hazy gold with a giant rocky off-white foam cap.
Ripe fruit first strikes the palate with a hint of sweetness, funk, some orange, a hint of bubble gum, and spice as the beer grows dry to finish slightly tart with a spicy bitter emphasis. The bitterness is a crisp quinine like bitterness rather than a heavier resiny or grapefruit rind bitterness.
The body is very creamy with a fine soft effervescence.

25.4 oz Bomber.Finally I get to review a Lost abbey product I have heard so much about.Inferno ale at 9.0 surely gets the job done but the taste is not quite there.A little Hoppy with a touch of grapefruit and a lot of carbonation.You can feel the alcohol burn when you drink it.Maybe better suited as a winter beer.Watch out for the heartburn.Ok beer but at 10.99 a bottle you want more than ok.Probably would not get this beer again.Not even Black Sabbath could make this and excellent beer.Motley out

Hazy darker orange color with a one finger head with good retention.
Sweet aroma of overripe oranges and herbal hops.
Flavor of Cointreau liquor, pears, light tartness, herbal notes, pineapple and candi sugar, yeast, lemongrass, grapes and some spices.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 8.5% abv is harmonic with the overall beer and it has a warming effect.
Good beer with good complexity, but not mind blowing, partially is due to the fact that we generally have high expectations on Lost Abbey’s brews.
