3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz growler, served at around 45F. Kegged in November 2012 if memory serves.
Pours cloudy amber with a two finger off-white head that leaves nice rings of lacing and recedes to a light cap.
Aroma is oranges, orange marmalade, citrusy hops, melon, caramel malt, a hint belgian-y. Good strength.
Flavor is orange marmalade, melon, fruity hops, decent bit of caramel malt with some sweetness, average bitterness, light alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy, oily, good carbonation.
Strikingly similar to the Ezekiel’s Wheel...almost makes me wonder if it is Ezekiel’s, but the keg is marked as Cannon Dragger. Lots of fruity hops and almost a Belgian character. Pretty good, but awfully expensive for what it is. I know they’re an upstart, but their pricing is pretty extreme.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber bottled on 3/13. (hand numbered)
Slightly hazy orange under a tall, creamy, off-white head.
Citrus and pine hop aroma.
Well balanced flavor between the malt and the hops but this could pass as an APA. Decent beer with no flaws, just lacks adventure. This came off the store shelf about 10 days ago, might be tired.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orangish amber with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma is balanced between bread malts and subtle hops. Taste is very well balanced between bitterness, malts, pine, and hints of citrus.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy dark burnt orange color with off white head. Aromas of caramel, pine, and citrus. Malt forward flavor with some pine and citrus with lots of bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. Decent beer, but too malty for an IPA for me.
