3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
APPEARANCE: Very orange/amber. Little to no head, with almost no lacing, yet constant bubbles.
AROMA: A noticeable fruity smell. Sweet, citrus and a light malt smell.
FLAVOR: A light hop taste, with a more noticeable fruity, citrus, and maybe almost apricot or peachy, kind of note. Some lightly malt finishes the taste off.
PALATE: Definitely a light to medium-bodied beer with and ever so slightly creamy mouth feel. No heat (of alcohol) whatsoever.
NOTES: At 6.5% this falls out of what I would usually session, though I could easily drink this a session beer. It’s a bit crisp, and could take a few down without a second thought on a hot, humid Cleveland day.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Very pale golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is quite bright and fruity with a nice lemon peel citrus flavour. Soft of soft and a little bit of cascadey citrus hops. As it warms, the hops sort of shift from herbal to citrusy with a nice assertive hoppiness. Bright and zesty with an almost lemon verbena character to the hops. Very bright and zesty with a lot of nice soft hoppiness. The beer is appropriately dry with a bit of tropical pineapple character. Lingering soft bitterness. It’s a decent soft hoppy IPA.
