bomber bottle compliments of a friend. orangish color with white head not alot of lacing. the taste was basically bitter hops...ok i said to myself where’s the flavoring or accent..nothing but bitter. kind of a waste of time.

On the border of pale and IPA. Nice and crisp with a lingering floral hop bite. This orange colored brew hits the spot on a warm day. A little tiny bit of citrus us back there too.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber pours clear copper with tan head. This playful aroma seems to be hiding behind the couch and refuses to come out. I get light notes of citrus orange peel and lime like hoppiness as well as some spicy hops and a sense of sweet fruity hard candy. The taste has a moderate level of bitter grapefruit and lime like citrus hops and then rolling into spicy and citrus hop flavor. Into the finish the largely citrus hop bitterness and flavor are joined by a thin river of sweet malts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bomber-pours bright hazy orange with some chunks with a nice soapy white head. big bubbles. nose is very floral, like you put your head in a flower garden with a mix of differnt notes/aromas. lots of hops but not pungent, very fragrent and lite. flavors are litely piney, light sweetness with a touch of toasted grains. finish is sweet with some lite dryness from the hop bitterness. not a bad pale ale here. definately drinkable but wish i had it a bit fresher. nonetheless glad i got to try it. Full Sail is definately a very solid brewery. I have been drinking their beers now for 10 yrs! :)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/1/11
Aroma: The nose is fairly hoppy, grapefruit, pale malts, pine, orange, and citrus
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a fizzy white head
Flavor: The flavor has a light citrusy sweetness, with a big, bitting, bitter finish to it
Palate: This one is medium bodied with fairly short duration, a fizzy carbonation, and a dry finish
This is rating numero uno of September!. As for the beer itself, it is quite bitter for the style, dry and bitting, but pretty solid. Another nice offering from Full Sail. The quality level from these guys seems to be generally fairly high.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours amber orange with an off white head and some chunks at the end of the bottle. Light floral hoppy aroma with very lightly sweet pale malts. The flavor is well balanced, with light floral hoppy notes and bready pale malts. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not really what I expected, moderately hoppy, a bit sour, almost has lager qualities, a bit darker than the usual PA, average to below average, my first selection from this brewer and I was not really impressed
