3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Short-lived yellowish head, cold hazed orange-ochre beer. Very aromatic hops, fruity, bit resiny, orangezeste, grapes, passionfruit, grapefruit. Bitter, metallic, resiny, but also fruity. Again grapefruitt-:orangezeste. Not much malttbackbone; parsley retronasal. Bit light body, light slickness, quite spritzy. Light - if not in ABV - pleasing IPA.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Falling Rock. Full disclosure: buzzed from beers I bought and shots people around me bought. I don’t think that changes me rating, though. Light amber color with and amazing cream colored head. Laces the glass with styrofoam spray where beer used to reside. Mild skunk weed aroma. Taste is malty and hoppy but not a tremendous amount of either.

Bomber. Clear dark gold with a tall head. Lots of sharp hop aroma with a bitter taste that is strong but not too much. Very good IPA

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark amber with a fading head.
Nose shows lychee, peach, orange blossom, pine and sweet cookie dough-like malt. Nice.
Pretty aggressive flavours. Not much malt, just a soft clean hit. Lots of pine and grapefruit. Sharp aggressive bitterness in the finish.
Soft carbonation could be higher.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Sweet caramel malt, apricot, and orange hops aroma. Hazy orange with a moderate off-white head. Piney orange peel hops and caramel malt flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. Yet another solid predictable IPA

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light orange pour, soapy light head and an aroma of herbal hops. Flavor is also slightly herbal medicinal oranges and hints of caramel and nuts. Hmm, price wasn’t terrible at $6/bomber, but I won’t be back.

Bottle. Orange, pine, and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange and moderately bitter orange peel/quinine flavor. Not bad but nothing that jumps out at me.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber, love the label, pours a hazy orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma of resinous pine, hops, a bit of oxidation and diacetyl. Flavor is buttery, some bitter hops, and the finish is a bit metallic. Bummer.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden copper with a big rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet sugary melon and dank piney peppery hops.
The flavor is is a let down - earthy grassy bitterness, a little sugary fruit, and some cardboard notes. The mouthfeel is light bodied and very watery.
Overall, I was excited after pouring, but the flavors are not bright and a bit off and it’s really watery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, clear to slightly hazy orange-amber pour with lasting white head, aroma brings notes of caramel, toffee, more grains, biscuit, vanilla, slight orange, grapefruit, marmalade type notes, touch of lemon, earth and spice. Taste is a mix of sweet orange, lemon, biscuit, bread, some hints of caramel, toffee, grain, finishing earthy, spicy, this is kind of like a well done ESB vs an IPA.
