Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a ridiculously thick pillowy white head on it. Nose is light and slightly hoppy with a few fruity citrus elements coming through. Taste is a little bitter with just a hint of sweetness on the back end and some citrus elements poking through. Decent beer.

Bottle courtesy of HypoLuxa at Asahiya.. A lovely golden copper pour with a foamy beige head with staying power. A great tropical fruit hop bouquet wafts from the glass. Medium full bodied with a zesty mouthfeel like a spritzer. The taste is well-balanced between fruity hops, piney notes & biscuity malts. Love the label love & the flavor.

Bomber thanks to michaelinwa. Pours a hazy golden amber color with a small foamy head that fades to a very thin ring. Aroma is very nice. Nice mix of citrus, pine, and grass hops with a big bready and biscuity malt base. The hops are more subdued in the taste. Nice malty sweetness up front and a light bitterness in the finish. Big biscuity taste throughout with some nice citrus fruit and dry hops. Crisp finish. My kinda pale ale.

As far as American goes, this one is a keeper. Very straightforward APA with enough malt, hop, and bitterness to keep a snob like me happy.

Bomber. Gusher, clear light orange copper, big off-white rocky volcano head. Aroma is moderate floral herbal hops and faint malt. Lightly bitter floral citrus hop taste, herbal and grassy, perfectly balanced with light pale malts with very little sweetness. Lively carbonation, light-medium body, moderately hopped. Delicious and extremely sessional. Clean dry finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

For the style, very beguiling, and one of the better ones. Quite complex -- solid malt backbone, but there’s some sort of slight sweetness -- fruity? citrusy? -- mixing in there, too. Hops of course are there, in balance, and ends with a satisfying slight bitterness.
