3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice foam head. The aroma is of grapefruit, slight malts, and floral hops. The flavor is refreshing. It is full of a sweet sugar citrus character, grains, and hops. I do not taste the malts until the aftertaste, which lingers in the mouth mildly with a hop flavor. There is also a bitterness that is not potent. The only thing that was off putting here was the impact on my palate. It is not harsh to it but the palate was affect more than I anticipated. Overall this was a nice beverage.

Worded as an IPA, but thankfully listed as an APA. The hoppiness is more felt in the finish, and lends it orange citrus flavour. Good drinkability, easy drinking so that I could finish the bomber. Bottle from recent trip to Champane Cellars.

Bomber: Glad to support the Kalamazoo Marathon! Because 1) I lived in Kalamazoo for 5 years, and 2) I’m a runner as well. So on the the review. Aroma has got a nice upfront floral hop note, gently spicy, with a little bit of grass textures mixed in there as well. Appearance is a clear golden with a medium white head that diminishes quickly. Taste is quite alright, A nice fruity hoppiness makes this really drinkable. Palate is medium carbonation with a slight zing in the aftertaste. Overall, Pretty solid Pale Ale. Cheers!

Pour from 22 oz bottle. Medium amber brew, clear with off white head that soon passes. Aroma of hops dominated - resin, floral blend, a bit of grass and crisp fruit, overall a little cidery. Taste is very fine - lightly sweet malts can be found at the start of the swallow but then the hops kick in - floral with grass and a little resin. Crisp fruit / green apple tones. Fine lingering finish. This is excellent!
