Bottled. A golden beer with a bubbly off-white head. The aroma has notes of citrusy and spicy hops with some malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of spices, malt, caramel, bread, and hops, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks pinball for sharing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a slightly hazy, medium burnt orange, not much head. Nose is pine and tropical fruit, slightly pissy. Mouth is medium bodied, begins bitter, then bittersweet, then an abrupt dryness, riding a slightly malty backbone that is defined by a fruity/piny hops profile (peach, mango and passion fruit). Some toasty notes and bread dough at the finish. Very nice APA. Definitely going to get some more of these.

Excellent beer when not looking for one that goes to eleven. Appearance, aroma, taste well together. All three have a solid orange citrus character. Hop taste is prevalent but not highly bitter. Very drinkable pale ale.

22 oz. bottle. Hazed orange pour with a thick white creamy head on top. Aroma of bright amarillo hops, citrus, slight gumball, mild caramel malt. Flavor is bright, crisp, refreshing. Balanced, with a fair amount of hops. Medium bitterness, like malty sweetness. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Pretty nice.

Solid little APA from Brickstone. Doesn’t stand out like crazy, but is extremely drinkable and a great example of the pale ale style. Every so slightly spicy and bitter, but with a more bold citrus presence than anything else.

Sampled at Brickstone. It poured a cloudy yellow color with a small white head. The aroma was peachy, grapefruity and citrusy. The taste was a little bitter, citrusy and crisp grapefruity hoppiness. It had a crisp hoppy finish. Very good!
