4.15/5  rDev +14%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This beer is exceptional in many ways. I'm very surprised that no one has mentioned its Belgian Ale qualities. It has the sweet tropical fruit smell and flavor, along with bubblegum, which I've never tasted in a beer that doesn't use Belgian yeast. I really enjoy the hop flavors: it's an explosion of light, smooth fruitiness without the tongue-numbing Pine-Sol experience of so many DIPA's. It's gotten pretty warm and the bitterness has become much more apparent, but I'm still going back for more sips after each sentence I write. My main complaint is the low head retention, but the scorching heat in my room today may have affected that. Super deal for $6.74.

2.66/5  rDev -26.9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Undated bomber at 45 degrees into goblet; twist off cap!
Extremely faint aroma of fruity hops
Head initially < 1 cm, off white, frothy; rapidly diminishing to a partial layer approximately 1.5 mm thick
No lacing
Body is medium orange, hazy: a couple of large lumps fell into the glass when poured
Flavor begins slightly bitter with no discernable taste. This ends with a slight astringency. No malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation.

This is not a good beer. It is contract-brewed in Wilkes-Barre, PA, possibly at The Lion. There is virtually no hoppiness nor any other flavor. The appearance and the aroma are both sub-par; only the palate is as expected. IMHO, pass this one by.
