Citrus, lemon, orange and vanilla on the nose. Very light golden color with a small foam top. Light, citrus hops with other flavors of orange, vanilla and a faint caramel malt. Slight carbonation with a thin texture. Overall, a pleasant ale with nice flavors of orange, citrus and hops. I’d give this a B rating.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ PW. Light, clear, orange-gold pour with a short white head leaving heavy lace. Good head retention. Nose is light toast. Bread, light citrus, grass, sprouts. Crisp, medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Finish has some caramel, biscuit and some vegetal bitterness. Sessionable and quite tasty, but a bit more aroma would suit this APA to the ground.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber pours a cloudy light orange haze. Purchased at Portland’s Whole Foods. Nice combination of bready malt with biting hops on top. This pale ale tops 98% of the competition - I cannot think of a single east coast competitor that trounces this except for Victory’s offering, I would go for a "pick 6" and score! on this one. Very well done.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber pours clear gold with slightly rocky tall light tan head. The aroma offers up spicy hops, sugar sweet malts and a touch of hoppy earthiness. The taste is similar with sweet sugary malts mixing with the spicy and faintly earthy hops. The hops grow a bit in bitterness midway and into the finish.
