Bomber from Hayduke. We had this together via facebook chat. We both rolled our bottles to loosen sediment. A lot broke free in mine. The result was a very dingy appearance that was kind of brownish copper. A nice beige head. The aroma is full of citrus fruit and especially grapefruit. The first sip gives the exact same thing. Big bitterness that is grapefruit zest. It is dry and bitter. After that I taste pineapple. By midglass that bitterness had moderated and more fruit took its place. A little malt, too, although this is very much hop forward. Tropical fruit grows toward the finish. And then the last 2 sips bring out some coconut. Where did that come from. I liked this beer. It was totally about the north west hops and they are very good.

(Nitro version) On tap at 8 Ounce Burger. Biscuity malt, faded hint of pine and grapefruit. Creamy smoothness seems to kill some of the character.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance has a slightly hazy orange amber supporting a thin dissipating head leaving spotty lace. Smell has a nice balance of sweet caramel malt and the citrus aroma of the hops. Taste has the citrus hop coming forward and carrying throughout followed by the sweetness of the malt. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. A good pale ale, could almost be if not already an IPA.
