2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz Bottle. The pour was a foggy golden copper with a small (1 finger or less) off white creamy head that receded down to a thin film with a small collar and had good streaky lacing.
The aroma was somewhat mild with a light grain malt, floral hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).
The taste was also mild with a lightly sweet malty taste and a hint of caramel at first, and then became lightly hoppy with a touch of citrus at the end. The flavor hung on for a good long while, with a slight increase in bitterness and a more pronounced citrus peel presence as time went on.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry, watery texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this was a light and decent tasting Pale Ale, although the increase in the citrus peel bitterness sort of changed the overall flavor of this brew...

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle (22oz $5): Cloudy darkish orange with huge white head. Very high carbonation which I think amplies the bitterness/harshness making this drink unpleasant.

Hazy brown with massive unstable head. Strong yeasty aroma. Flavour also yeasty and it’s overcarbonated. Maybe some defects in this one. A fair amount of malts in the background. Also some plastic. Not good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber with a killer label! Dark orange amber, translucent to hazy with a thin dissipating head. Aroma of sweet stone fruit and fresh bread leading to a friendly hopiness. It’s a mild start that builds in hop intensity on the palate, then falls away. Good drinking, definitely pine and resin. Better than the IPA!
