Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Almost half of my Perfect Pint glass is foam. It leaves a thick layer of lace as it falls. The beer is honey golden and almost clear. I smell mostly soft malts with just a little fruit and some grass. First sip is big and brings an attitude. Big hops with grass, floral, and pine. The hops allow some subtleties to come through. Soft malts that are almost saison. Grass and lemon notes. Later more fruit emerges and it is citrus and tropical. The hops become background bitterness and the beer much smoother. The flavor meanders through the flavor spectrum and I love that. This was fun and tasty.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured a gold with a big foam white head and excellent lacing. Medium body with a resinous mouth feel. Flavor is orange peel, lemon, and smooth caramel malts. The finish is orange zest bitter. This beer starts on big on hops, and the malts come on strong as it warms bringing it into excellent balance. Flavorful and quite drinkable.

"pretty good overall, but lacking the punch to contend with the better strong ales out there. it’s smooth, and lulls you into believing it’s not as strong as it is, but it’s a little on the boring side, although it does have both a malt & hop presence. interesting brew."

Nice aroma of yeast, biscuits. Nice ale for a hot summer day. Nothing really impressive about this beer, just your a little above average pale ale . Would not go out of the way for this one.

Fairly clear light gold in appearance. Nose is slightly piney with an almost grape-like aroma as well. Taste is sweet with an orange citrus flavor. Slightly peppery from the alcohol.
