A nice, deep, coppery Amber. I feel like there's good hop flavor hiding somewhere in there, but it's muted. Wish it packed a little more punch. A decent session beer.

Deep bronze with a thin head flows she. Some soft pine tree and tropical whiffage going on in the nose. Tastes is refreshing, gentle hops with a cereal malt spine, some grass and mangoes. Session flavour? I think so!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a copper-orange with a one finer off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus, sweet malts, caramel, floral hops, and some light fruits. Taste is similar to the aroma with pine cone, citrus (a lot of orange), sweet caramel malts, and some tropical fruits. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a slightly dry, semi-moderate bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty tasty, well balanced XPA that has some interesting flavors

Nitro pour into pint glass at Town Hall Lanes. Orange, maybe copper color with a steady, dependable head. Taste is better than other beers I’ve had on nitro. Maintains a decent freshness and a solid, if unspectacular flavor. Some sweetness and a present bitterness at the end. Worth a shot if you spot it at your local bar establishment.

Bomber. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. A nice light fruity nose. The flavor is big oranges, hell a bit of resin, lemons, biscuit, a mellow caramel malt, some British yeast. Quite good. A big PA.

On nitro at Stouts. Really nice foam head and cascading reorganization of the nitrogen gas. Slightly dark amber. Clear. Massive amount of lacing. Floral and slight citrus nose. Buttery, floral hops and a slightly sweet finish. Would like this a little better attenuated, but it is pleasant.

Pours a finger and half of head on a hazy straw colored body.
The aroma is just lots of pine, but good.
The taste is nicely balanced pine bitterness and honey sweetness.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
Very drinkable and tasty.

Bomber bought at Super 1 in Post Falls, ID. Aroma is floral, perfumy hops, fairly muted. Pine comes through after it sits a bit. Pours hazy orange with a medium off-white head with decent retention. Taste is citrusy and quite bitter. Slightly foamy mouthfeel. Decent beer, but it doesn’t seem all that experimental to me.

Nitro tap at red cow, pours a clear copper/orange with a large creamy off-white head. Aroma of sweat fruity caramel malt with some citrus hops. Taste of smooth sweet cereal malt some fruitiness from the hops but no bitterness. Reminds me more of an ALT. Not bad but not much of a pale ale, still don’t understand these on nitro.

~Fruity like guava aroma with pine, citrus and bready malts.
~Pours a slightly hazy amber color with lasting creamy white head.
~Guava fruit comes through in flavor along with citrus and some resinous pine. Well balanced with bready malts.
~Medium bodied with medium CO2, hoppy bitter finish that lingers.
~This is one of the better pale ales I’ve had in awhile. Really like the fruitiness that the hops offer and that the malts aren’t dominated by the hops.
