3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from State Line. Deep golden pour with orange tints and thin, crisp carbonation. Hints of pine in the nose, along with sweet apricot. Slightly prickly mouthfeel at first, then settles into a full and fluffy feel. Taste is a bit biscuity with a sweet foundation, balanced just enough by a lightly dry finish. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate roasted for the malt, pine and herbs for the hops, light dough and soap for the yeast, with a hint of pepper. Head is small, wispy, slightly off-white with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky but clears up, amber/orange with medium sized light colored particles. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation. An easy drinking and pretty tasty American Pale Ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep, thick cheddar orange with a nose of slightly musty grapefruit and orange. Flavor is flat orange-grapefruit and light pine. Average mouthfeel. Disappointing.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(22oz bomber thanks to ericandersnavy) clear amber with a film of white bubbles. Nose of grapefruit, rye, and rhubarb. Taste of bitter citrus, umami, soft carbonation with an oily, bitter finish that’s not super enjoyable. Smelled better than it tasted.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
Honey yellow with an aroma of honey and lemon, with a light grassy buzz.. Taste is mostly the same, but dialed down and drinkable, with citrus tartness into the finish. $4/22oz

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. It pours orange with a really nice white head of foam. The aroma is slightly citrusy and grassy with a fruity, malty backbone. The flavor is oranges, herbal, and touches of grapefruit in the finish. The malts are nicely balanced. It lacks a bitter punch in the finish, which is good for some people and not good for others. Overall, this was a laid back version of an APA, but still pretty solid.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A murky orange color. The head is dense, off-white and about 2 inches. Malty sweet aroma. Bland flavor like an English pale ale. Very smooth texture. The finish just a little bitter but long.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber pours hazy orange/copper with a thin off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, citrus, floral, and slight pine. Taste is malty with some bready bitterness. Drinkable but nothing special, pretty typical of Full Sail.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light amber with a small lacing head. The aroma is muted, mostly yeast and bread, some malt. The flavor though is better with a nice malty start followed nicely by the bitter hops. A good deal of citrus in the finish which is very dry, crisp and clean. A very nice summer beer.
