UPDATED: FEB 7, 2014 Piny and bitter off the start awaken the mouth. Mid sip banana notes with a mild punch of yeast. Finishes with a flat hop taste that blankets the tongue. Good for a glass.

It must be a seasonal release. I didn’t know at the time that this was the 2013 release. Good. On tap at the Public House.

Bottle pours clear yellow with foamy white head. Very nice aroma of citrus and pine. Taste sweet bready malts with citrus. Slightly bitter finish. Light palate but seems to coat the moth pretty well. Enjoyable IPA.

2013 release. Pours clear gold with rocky white head. Huge orange zest and slightly spicy hops on the nose. More big orange zest up front, and little malt. It drys out nicely on the end with a slight lingering bitter orange. Fantastic.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Bottles and Cans with a "best by" date 2 months out. Pours a pale yellow with a spongey white head leaving very nice circles of lace. Aroma has fresh cut grass and pine with some citrus and bits of straw/earthiness. Taste is of lemons, grapefruit and oranges, with pine and some sour fruit involved. It is light bodied and while not overly bitter, mainly bitter & spicy with some sweet fruitiness. Finishes most bitter, with some tanginess. Not real alcohol presence - would be a mostly bitter sessionable ale.
