3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a bright amber color with a finger or two of white head and some mild lacing.
S: Definitely hearty and bready, much more so than a 5.5% would usually seem. Some citrus and floral hop aromas, mostly orange and lemon peel, and some pine is present as well.
T: Again, the bread is center stage here. There are plenty of floral hops which really seem to characterize the beer. Still, a good citrus bite is there and gives some oranges and maybe grapefruit. Bitter and piney on the finish.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation and a crisp, dry finish.
D: Not the best of the Bootlegger’s offerings, but a solid pale ale that you could drink with ease.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Hi-Time. Pours gold with a creamy/foamy white head. Aroma is citrus, a hint of floral perfume, and roasty malt. Med body. Flavor is citrus/floral followed by excessively roasty malt. Finish is just a bit too malty for my preference. But the hop certainly helps.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Dutchdrebus. Hazy orange golden color, average sized white to off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is resinous hops with a decent malt base. Tastes about the same: malts, resinous hops, resinous hoppy bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. I like this, but I really like resin and resinous hops. Can understand people disliking it if that’s not their thing.
