3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. First reviewed 7/26/2011. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip. From notes.
Out of the bottle, this is a hazy tangerine color with a robust, foamy white head that retains nicely and leaves a web of lace down the glass.
Citrusy hops are very apparent in the nose, with a nice honey biscuity malt presence backing it up. A little bit of alcohol on the back end.
The flavor starts with a light sweetness and a dry, biscuity malt. A smooth, clean bitterness sets in quickly before finding some nice grapefruit and a little bit of pine resin. The bitterness cleans up at the end and actually finishes a little bit sweet.
This has a medium body with smooth, creamy carbonation. A little bit of hop residue is left after each sip, and my lips are left slightly sticky.
Although I appreciate how bitter and hoppy this is, the variety of hops here leave a little to be desired. I could go for a little bit more citrus and a little less of the clean bitter flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hop Art pours a murky deep orange color. The head this beer pours is huge and has great retention. The head also leaves lacing everywhere and I mean everywhere. Now before I go any further, I just want to say that I think my bottle was a little old. It was still very good but I could tell some of the ingredients were going a little stale.
The smell has a nice grapefruit smell mixed in with a very sweet caramel malt and floral hops. Good stuff. The taste is full of sweet malt backed up by piney hops that I didn’t pick up in the aroma. Mixed in with that is grapefruit and some peppery spice. The malt is definitely up front here though, so that’s why I think this beer might be a little old. I would love to try a really fresh bottle. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, mild carbonation, and finishes with a slight spicy and bitter taste.

22 ounce bomber that pours a murky golden orange color with aromas of bread, floral hops, malt, citrus, and caramel. Flavor matches the aroma with the malt and hops balancing each other out. Real nice beer.
