Thanks to Suttree for this one. Clear amber with billowy off-white head. Nose of bubblegum, pine, resin, juicy fruit gum...soap...could be the glass... Good carbonation, medium light body. Sweet juicy fruit start balanced out and then some by biting serious hop presence. Long lasting bitter/carbonation induced tingly tongue sensation. Not perfectly balanced, but still, very enjoyable.

Bomber from Bruisin’. Pours a hazy orange with a good head. Aroma is definitely in the IPA territory. Though the hops aren’t super defined, this has plenty of citrusy and piney goodness to make me happy. The flavor is pleasingly bitter with a dry finish. Good even hop delivery in the mouth and some subtle fruity undertones are noted. I like this one. It’s solid.
