3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle at the brewery. Toasted malt, grainy, fruity/floral hop character, clean yeast. A nice easy drinking pale ale.

Bomber. Sweet malty aroma without much in the way of hop. Hazy gold with a huge, white head. Head overflowed a bit when I poured it, so pretty lively; must be bottle conditioned. Nice lace. Initial impression is that there might be a flaw, or age. Very dry for a pale ale with a fairly good hop zing...especially for an APA. Quite ordinary.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured into a pint glass.
3.5 A: Moderately hazed medium orange color. Three fingers of beige frothy head. Retention is good and moderate amounts of lacing are left.
3.0 S: Bready malts. Earthy and herbal hops with notes of cat piss.
2.0 T: Lots of yeasty breadiness. Not a lot of other flavor aside from a light neutral maltiness. Herbal hoppiness. Light bitterness. Nothing can get through the yeastiness and thus this needs to be cleaner. As it is, it sucks.
3.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy, but also too chewy.
2.0 D: Not a fan of this. Iím finding out that pale ales need to be filtered for me to enjoy them.
Serving type: bottle

22oz bottle split with Anndiesel. Unfiltered dulled brown-tan. Steady, creamy beige head. This is is really nice. Creamy, subdued carbonation, a solid, well made APA. A touch heavy and lingering in the finish, it lets you know this is a pretty big beer at heart, despite the creamy body. Grassy grapefruit hop tones are steady throughout, adds a spicy balancing bitterness. Caramel, rich malt tones. Solid, respectable offering.

(22oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear medium gold, offwhite bubbles. Nose of sawdust, funky, white wine grapes. Taste of cracker, butter, old, bit aged, nothing impressive.

It was okay, it didnít compare to the look and smell. Left me feeling a little disappointed. It did have a very creamy and think head.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ The Eastburn... Poured amber/golden-orange with a white head, mild lacing. Faint aroma with bread-like malt. Low bitterness, quite sessionable and quaffable. Hints of lemon peel, vanilla sweetness, creamy, bready, big malt flavors. Hops offered spice with hardly any bitterness.
