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)

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.

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.

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 .
