Fairly fresh bomber. This pours a slightly hazy, dark golden amber color and topped by a thick head of off white foam that slowly recedes and coats the glass with lacing nicely. The aroma is based mostly in toasted, dry cereal grains and bready malts with hints of citrus and a touch of clean, grassy hops. The flavor follows suit and come across mostly dry and well balanced. The dry toasted cereal and bread malts form the base while some lightly peppery, grassy hops add some bitterness for balance. Hint of citrus fruit come through and add a touch of sweetness while lending to the bitterness from the hops. Medium bodied and easy drinking with moderate carbonation and just really well balanced. This is a nice pale ale that is pretty straight forward, but balanced and enjoyable either way.

Via trade with Dchmela, a bonus extra local beer! The aroma is citrus, bread, caramel. The appearance is translucent amber, white head. The flavor is citrus, vegetable, caramel, metal. The finish is resin and metal. Medium in body. Not bad, not great.

burg326 (3883) - Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2011
22 oz bomber that pours a burnt orange with a throuthy head. Smells like a fresh biscuut and was excited to try it. A decent American Pale Ale and worth a try which will go well with the summer heat.

Fresh bomber. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden amber color with a thick, fluffy head of eggshell to beige foam. Dense, solid walls of lacing coat the glass almost entirely. The nose is very bready, showing a clean, lightly toasted, dry cereal grain base that is balanced with a light dusting of grasses and mild citrus. Flavors largely follow suit, again coming across as balanced and mostly dry. Lightly peppery, grassy green notes cut through the dry, wheaty cereal and toasted white bread elements. Hints of pithy citrus lend further drying, bittering character. The body is moderate in both stature and carbonation, drinking easy because the heft seems more from well-attenuated and unfiltered grain malt than from laboring residual sugars. Good brew. Nothing fancy, just solid and balanced. Boring perhaps, but free of any off-putting qualities.

22 oz bottle. Foggy orange with a puffy white head. Nose is orange juice, lemon tea and dough. Medium light with moderate carb. Taste is citrus peel and pith. Nicely balanced, easy drinking.

From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center Denver 16/09/2010 As Cocoa Beach Pale Ale Fruity hop aroma. Golden coloured a little hazy in appearance pale and hoppy with a hint of dryness in a bitter malt finish.

The aroma does not make one think that anything special is coming. It’s got grassy hops and a dull clean maltiness. The appearance is deep gold with a small head. The taste makes up for a lack of aroma with a big sweet malt punch to balance a robust hop quality. The palate is thick and smooth. Overall a very good beer!
