Enjoyed this bomber bottle out of a Beligan Tulip glass.

A: Pours a cloudy orangish-copper hue with a white, 4-finger, frothy head that slowly dissipates leaving a great trail and solid lace.

S: Sweet tangerine fruity aroma.

T: Sweet tangerine and spicy flavor with a good hop profile. Ends of the sweet fruity side of bitter.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: This is one of the combination beers that actually works. Complex flavors and aromas.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Glowing slightly hazed yellow body. Loads of cascading lace down to the bottom.

Smells of banana and apple esters with a little spice and a splash of grapefruit.

The taste has more of the banana and apple, citrus, a little clove, then finishes with a burnt plastic that lingers.

Mouthfeel is full and a little sticky. Good carbonation.

Overall I thought it was a very good beer but for the off-putting aftertaste of plastic. The aroma and other flavors were very good.
