3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of flowers. Beautiful coppery color with a white head that laces a slight bit. A light version of Lagunitas Lucky #13? Starts with full mouthfeel, floral and citrus flavors/aromas. This is not super hoppy, it’s just hard to find malty sweetness. Good stuff. Really. Beautiful appearance, wonderful flavors.

Bomber poured a clear copper with a small, short lived amber head. Aromas of grapefruit, carmel, pine and some earthiness. Palate was light bodied and slightly resiny. Flavors of grapefruit, pine, and carmel with a lingering, pleasently bitter finish. This is a very drinkable beer!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Clear, textbook-amber ale with a mid-sized, cumulus-like, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma is both floral and earthy and bursting-at-the-seams with fresh, PNW lupulin. Medium-bodied and a touch slick with soft carbonation. More sweet than bitter up front - more bitter than sweet on the backside... earthy, piney. Modestly bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home. It seems like the last time I had this beer, it was in a bomber. I guess they moved it to 12 ounce bottles. Hazy, amber orange appearance with an off white head that has large bubbles. Potent resiny, grapefruity, piney hoppy, citrusy aroma. Very resiny. Soft mouth feel. Mildly bitter, very potent grapefruit citrusy, resiny hoppy flavor with a lot of citrusness. Pretty nice pale ale.
