Hazy gold with a good white head. Palate is smooth with fine minerally csrbonation. A light malt base, little cream. Touch of floralness. Little skunk and then robust citric peel bitterness. Fijishes semi dry and showing more hop skunk and bitterness. Hangs together quite well.

fiulijn (18598) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle from Community Food Co-op - N Forest St, Bellingham, WA
Hazy light amber color; medium sized head. Pungent hop aroma (Nelson Sauvin - like), fruity, some passion fruit and other citrus fruits, lime, pungent animal character too. Lean mouthfeel; it has good caramel and toffee flavor, with very strong bitterness and fruity/pungent hop character; long final, with a biscuity character. Canít get the treacle, but this is a modern Golden Ale, excellent.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours very hazy orange amber with a creamy off-white head. Huge citrus/grapefruit nose. Med body. Flavor is a bit off for me - in the sense of not enough barley to support the incredible amount of hop. On the other hand flavor is marvelous for me because of the incredible amount of hop. Itís got a very light floral touch, but most all is citrus and a lot of grapefruit rind. Doom must have been the end of the hop budget. So it finishes dry, incredibly hoppy, but smooth rather than harsh. Iím about off about calling golden syrup treacle, but our cousins do it, and itís technically correct. Damn tasty ale!
