Brewer Description: (from website) Booming Rollers is a showcase for the juicy awesomeness of Citra hops. These new wave American hops impart a remarkable aroma and flavor, which we’ve amplified with the dark stone fruit character of New Zealand-grown Motueka hops. Some Centennial is thrown in to balance the tropical fruit party, and the malt body is just assertive enough to support Booming Rollers’ snappy bitterness. It’s a party in your mouth and all the beautiful people are invited.

Intro: A 200ml pour on draft at Mikkeller Bangkok into a mini stemmed Mikkeller tasting glass.
Appearance: It was a clear golden copper colour with a one finger white head and good lacing.
Aroma: More subtle than I hoped for, but there is citrus fruit, grapefruit and pine.
Taste: Similar to the aroma, it was bitter with grapefruit, citrusy lemon and pine along with some biscuit malt.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was just ok for me. I tried Blam! Blam! right before Booming Rollers and for me, Blam! Blam! was easily my preferred choice.
