Notes: The snow is liable to fall any day here in New England, leaving the landscape blanketed in a peaceful and comforting embrace of white.

Pouring an opaque yellow color in the glass, Bomb Cyclone carries intense notes of citrus, coconut, guava gummies, and strawberry bubble gum. There is a pleasant bitterness on the finish that beautifully entices your next sip.

An extra kettle and dry-hopped rendition of our winter seasonal Snow, Bomb Cyclone only comes around once a year, and we will relish this beer the way we do a deep and fluffy snowfall in the dead of winter - enjoy!

2 months old. Can to wine glass.

Look: Pours a full hazy yellow with a foamy white head leaving a good amount of lacing. No floaters.

Smell: Citrusy with notes of lime and grapefruit paired with a subtle orange sweetness.

Taste: A fruit basket with ripe citrus fruits (here again orange, grapefruit and lime), strawberries, white peach and grapes on the one hand, resinous, even piney notes on the other hand. Medium (bubblegum) sweetness, slightly zesty and a bitter finish.

Feel: Full and juicy. Medium carbonation. Very smooth.

Overall: This is a great beer. Very complex, yet so smooth and drinkable. The typical citrusy TH notes are very well paired with other, sweeter fruits that you wouldn’t expect to be combined. However, they feel like a perfect match as they are perfectly balanced.

Cloudy pale yellow-orange with two fingers of antique white head.

Big aroma of orange citrus, pineapple and maybe a touch of coconut.

Very sweet tasting — but not in a sugary way. Somewhat flowery, with strawberry, pineapple, white peach and a wee bit of green herbs. Very pleasant.

Soft, pillowy feel with slow-building carbonation.

Very tasty beverage. Highly recommended.

Canned 01/27/22, it pours cloudy mustard yellow/orange color, with a 2 finger thick foamy off-white colored head that faded very slowly and left excellent lacing coating the glass along with foamy rings as it dissipated. It’s an outstanding looking brew. Smells of tangerine, pineapple, apricot, peach, orange peel, lemon, clementines, red grapefruit, musty grapes, biscuit, yeast, tea leaf, light peppery spices, dried flowers or dry floral hops, canned fruit cocktail and tropical fruit. It comes off as dry hopped and wet hopped, making for a really enjoyable aroma.

Tastes of tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, lime, orange juice, guava, honeydew melon, starfruit, caramel, honey, biscuit, toasted grains, orange creamsicle, faint piney notes, coriander, Razzles candy and then a mix of tropical fruit as it fades. The right amount of sweetness combined the hops and malts, making for a complex beer that comes off dank from the dry hopping with plenty of tropical fruit and citrus hop flavors in the mix. Carbonation is mild and the mouthfeel is creamy, going down easy even with a little ABV bite.

Canned 12/10/21 . A gift from my brother in MA. Thanks , Derek! :)

Opaque orangey-gold , with slight pink tint. About 1.5 fingers of off-white head that leaves a 1/4 ring, thin surface sheeting, and some spotty/streaky lacing.

Smell is fresh, slightly unripe peach , that I can smell from 3' away, pineapple juice, papaya, blood orange, and fleeting hints of fresh-out-of-the-oven bread, & ...hmmmm???..... bubble gum ? Yeah bubble gum.

Taste is unripe peach, but riper than in the aroma, kiwi, a mix of melon (charentais, galia, & honeydew) , fresh Valencia orange juice, and a hint of pineapple smoothie. Light-moderate bitterness.

Feel is juicy, with moderate, very,very fine carbonation bite. Very slight green/hop burn at the back of the throat, as it warms. A little surprised, given it's seven weeks old, but one of the few times I've encountered that where it's a net plus, and enhances the experience.

Overall, just fantastic. That overall effect of the combination of melon flavors is an unexpected wonder. Would have liked to drink this sooner, but the Omicron messed up my taste for a bit, & didn't want to waste this beer. Nonetheless, even at seven weeks, it's top-notch, and an unmitigated pleasure. :)

From a 16oz can dated 12/10/21 into a pint glass.

Pours an opaque orangish yellow with about two and a half fingers of white head. Incredible retention and lacing.

Smells of pineapples, a touch of bubble gum, some oranges and some dank onions and earth.

Tastes of citrus-oranges, grapefruit some pineapple and mangoes. Nice earthy notes as well.

Very drinkable! Oniony aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Full-bodied mouthfeel.

Bam! This is a winner. Incredible drinkability.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Tree House in Sandwich for about twenty dollars. My two hundred and sixteenth brew from these guys. Canned on date of 12/10/21. This is excellent.

Best of the Treehouse Christmas beers, at least of those Ive had so far. The citrus really hits you yet it is as well balanced as an 8+ ABV can get. One of those beers that reminds you how good these guys are.

Pours ultra hazy, gold in color with one quarter inch head. Taste is honeydew melon, watermelon, strawberry, and peach. Heavy body, moderate carbonation, slightly bitter. Has parts of Very Green and Juice Machine. The fruit just oozes out. Easily the best of the season beers. Delicious.
