look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

650ml 2013 bomber poured into tulip 15/6/14 big cheers towards Rutager for sending the bottle

A slight haze in a light orange body, fine sediment being moved around by bubbles of all sizes, three fingers of loose noisy foam falls quickly leaving no lace

S more hops then I expected one can only imagine what a fresh bottles like, canned peaches, lychee, mango, over ripe pineapple, tangerine and lemon, some funk, soft caramel and wet wood round things out, interesting nose smells massive

T not quite the levels of fruit found on the nose but that still leaves a fair bit, some orange peel, sweet and sour work well together, just a little funk, I'm loving the taste but the nose had a little more intensity

M medium bodied with soft carbonation, slightly tart, lots of lemon on the finish

O not sure what I was expecting but this works for me, surprised by the amount of hops in this brew still clear as day

I'd love to try some older bottles to see what happens to it, the funks pretty mellow at this point but plenty of hops works well for this guy
