Pours a bright golden copper colour with a thin off white head that dies instantly. The aroma is rich and zesty with light tart hop aromas, lemon zest, orange rind and slightly spicy hops. Toasted wheat malts, biscuity and caramel malts up front with light sweetness. Tart, a bit musty and dry on the finish with moderate bitterness. Light alcohol presence on the finish. Very complex.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber - pours a big fluffy head with a darker golden haziness and plenty of carbonation - almost effervescent. Aroma is similar to a hefeweizen full of tropical fruits. A mouthfeel is soft and bready. Obviously a big wheat flavor presence is dominant, however complementary to banana, papaya and breadfruit flavors. Upfront is bread then fruit then a spice then hop and then a long finish of crisp blonde ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy (first glass) to heavily particulate-laden (last glass) pale gold with one finger of soapy white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, patchy moderate lacing. (3/5) Nose is doughy wheat, mild banana and other fruit, oak, lightly boozy. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter, very mild tart. (7/10) Medium body, soft carbonation, slightly oily, dry and slightly boozy finish. (4/5)
Not hot, but gently warming, particularly in the belly. Despite the moderately high IBU (42) I’m not getting a lot of identifiable hop character, and the bitterness is quite mild and well-integrated into the overall profile. Quite drinkable despite the beefy ABV. (15/20)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle from Boise Co-op. Pours out with a beautiful fluffy head, cloudy amber body with lots of particulates. Nice bready aroma, thick and heady. Taste comes out stronger, still bready, but with a lot of body behind it. Smoother than the average BW, ABV hides well in the background. Burn comes on very late, in the stomach.
