Can. Good aroma of citrus and a hint of pine. Medium/light mouthfeel, with a fairly bitter finish. The malty backbone is fairly robust and a bit earthy/dusty.

Sporadic uneven spots of lacing along the sides. Good retention. Smelled wet Cascade hops, Irish Spring soap, floral hops, pine, lime and some buttery caramel malts. Tasted slightly different than the nose. Got buttery malts, lime grass, honey, grass hops, soap and caramel. Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Buttery abrupt finish. Didn’t really like this one at all. Would not have it again on purpose.

Bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness and a hint of fruitiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of caramel, earthiness and a hint of fruitiness with a smooth dry lingering earthy finish.

pinkzambia (1394) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Tap: Semi-cloudy copper color with a small off-white head and sticky lacing. It has a grassy, leathery aroma. Malty hop balanced taste with a mild hop finish. Not bad.

stevoj (1699) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Aroma of citrus/oranges at the pop of the flip top (can). Pours amber with thin head and sticky lacing. Taste is hops, malt, citrus, dry palate, lingering finish. Highly drinkable and enjoyable.

IndianaRed (2184) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 25, 2013
On tap at the Boise brewhouse. The same hazy orange/amber as its big brother, "Devil’s Pick" Small corase light tan head that had to be coaxed a bit from the tap. (cheaters!). Faint malty aroma lacking any big fresh hop notes. Some wet brown paper bag and grassiness. Flavor is mildy hop flavored and a balanced malt backbone. Nothing off-putting but basic and steady. I’d like to see something a little more risky in a small brewhouse that is doing well otherwise in its market, but a pale ale is a pale ale mostly. And this is one.

Very wheaty light body, with a hint of yeast, bitter but without a hop profile, slightly off flavor.

Ostomo517 (73) - Norton Shores, Michigan, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Pours a nice deep copper . Aroma is very citrus. Palate is a unique malt flavor I can’t put my finger on but I really like. Accompanied by a nice hop presence. A solid PA.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bomber from Hayduke. We enjoyed it together via facebook chat. I rolled my bottle to loosen the sediment and it poured hazy golden brown with a golden tinted head. The aroma was passion fruit and caramel and was not huge. When tasted the fruit was a little thin and some grapefruit was tasted underneath. Passion fruit was more prominent. Malts were noticed but were light. Mid glass some fruit roll ups were tasted and later the finish was akin to a bitter. The final sips included the foam and were creamy. This was a nice pale ale and was unique in its hop profile.

Share with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured a dark rich clear copper color with a medium sized off-white head. The nose is caramel malts with some floral hops. Medium in body and smooth in the mouth. The flavor shows passion fruit and roasted malts. Finish is bitter. It gets better as it warms. A tasty and easy to drink beer;
