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

A:Pours a hazy marigold yellow with a tinge of orange. Rich, white, 2+ finger head, fades to 1 finger and stalls. Lots of fast rising carbonation.

S: Yeasty sugars, perceivable orange citrus.

T: Semi-sweet candied sugar, toffee, chardonnay, fruit tartness along the lines of dates and plums, sour orange juice, citric hop bitterness.

M: Chewey, smooth cream, the carbonation flirts courteously on the tongue.

D: This big bottle will do me for the afternoon, but, oh yeah, it's drinkable -- a little too drinkable.

Poured a clear light gold color with a thick head that last through the drink. The nose sensed some floral, yeast, and citrus aromas.There was nice carbonation. A nice balance of malt and bitterness, with a crisp yeasty flavor lasting on the tongue. Very smooth and a soft aftertaste. Great beer and should be sought out by all.

A bomber at cellar temp, handled as if it were full of nitroglycerin, opens with a threatening pop! and a vigorous surge of large bubbles begins head-building operations immediately in the neck of the bottle. This drink wants out!

A careful pour into a tulip glass evokes a billowing, explosive cloud of soft white foam, decorated by a tiny glowing golden body alive with bubbles. The head is continually fed by a steady stream of bubbles, and holds at over two fingers throughout the drink, lacing the glass in a fashion not unlike shaving cream. This drink is alive!

Smell is yeasty and sweet, with notes of clover honey, hay, crushed red pepper, and unbaked sweet rolls.

Tastes yeasty and tart, with sweet grass, underripe green pears, nutty and dry, with a flavor of spicy pie crust and a touch of astringency and chalk in the last pour from the bomber. Lingering dryness and a note of raw pecans remind the drinker to drink again.

Smooth, rich, and tingly in the mouth with a nice clean finish. Nutty, yeasty character lingers; extremely drinkable and damned delicious.
