4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow, this is a model tiny hop bomb. Huge aroma, lots of head retention, great body, sweet/bitter balance, citrusy and strong piney aromas. And very lean as a sub 4. Effervescence is good but shy of lively -- pretty much perfect. You can’t get much better than this for summer beer. I really can’t imagine any tweak to this beer that could make it any better. Summer perfection right here.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber thanks to Jimmy. Pours bright yellow and fairly clear. Nose is citrus and nicely floral. Taste gives a nice hop profile but there is an overall thinness and lack of body and backbone to this beer. Sort of like drinking water with some hops added.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Zeitgeist. Very pale strew coloured brew. The nose is fairly bright and hippy. A little bit of light pine and a bit of grapefruity citrus. A touch of light lemony citrus along with some spicy/noble hoppiness as well. Sessionable brew with notes of lemon and spice as well as some zestiness. Bright and fresh. A simple Sessionable brew with loads of hop-forward character. Lovely stuff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours gold with a fizzy/creamy white head. Nice aroma of citric/resin hop over caramel. Near med body. Flavor is a little thin, the caramel is a bit up front, but it’s very, very bitter. Citrus and resin to me. Quite tasty.

Clear golden in color.... Aroma of citrus hops... Flavor is slightly water with mild bitterness from citrus hops on the palate, but not that remarkable hop character... Not bad

Clear gold color with a small head. Aroma is grapefruit and grass. Flavor is moderately bitter, but crisp. Slightly astringent. I want this to come in six packs.

Pours a light yellow color with a small head. Aroma has oranges and a grassiness to it. Flavor has bitterness up front but it’s a light drinking beer. Carbonation is very noticeable with other floral notes. Surprised that it was only 3.8%.

Pours with gorgeous light gold color and a swiftly fading white head. Very floral aroma. Strong bitter resin taste that's fades quickly to a light hop aftertaste

Thanks to Chris and Merideth of the beergeek.com. Poured crysal clear and golden-amber with an airy white head. The aroma is ... well .. WOW! Rich with hoppy resin. Wicked and woodsy, this is a textbook example of west coast vs east coast .... this one rife with some big-time acids, striving in the west coast way for over-the-top citrus. The east coast guys seem to go more for bigger beers without the bite. Interesting, delicious. (#4613, 6/9/2012)
