3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. Rating #4. Hazy dark brown color with a tan head. Sweet citrus aroma after a bit of pine from the initial sniff. Nice flavor, more sweetness, but it’s more tropical on the tongue, mild aftertaste at first, but that gained strength as I sat and continued to drink. Pretty nice. (2534)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber pour with a white head. Nose is sweet sugar and caramel with a bit of fruit, some citrus peel, and a light pine note. A hint of butter, some grass, and a hint of alcohol. The flavor is on the boozy side with a fair amount of bitterness. Lots of sugar, caramel, and citrus peel. A hint of herbs and sweet fruit on the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from BevMo. Medium amber on the pour. Nice hopped nose with some citrus and a little sweetness. Pretty good mouth feel. Tasty hop flavors with a decent enough malt bill to keep things balanced. Alcohol is well hidden .

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
clear light gold. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit and orange rind. Flavor is more pine bitter than fruity. Easy on the palette for a 9.5% beer. The aroma is great, but the flavor leaves some to be desired.
