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.

Crisp and bright pale ale. Very fruity (pear, orange, apple and grapefruit). Bread crust and crackers in the malts. Floral bitterness with a citric bite. Very mild sweetness. Lingering grassy bitterness. Refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shared a bomber at Max’s. Poured a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is of citrus (oranges), pine, Lots of hoppiness on the palate along with the grain and bread. Medium bodied beer with a dry finish. Tried this beer because I loved the LTD lager series so much.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bomber from EZ. Poured a slightly muddy orange/amber body under an average to smaller off white foamy head. Aroma of lemons, wet bread, earth, lemon zest, crusts. Palate was meh..thinner mouthfeel with stingy carbonation and an acidic finish. Flavor of lemons and mud. Overall a lemony earthy beer that is under average at best.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold-orange with a large-grained head. Wonderful, aromatic nose with floral and resinous qualities; there’s also faint grapefruit in the mix. Crisp and rich on the tongue, with definite herbal hop flavors and citrus/resin notes playing well against the darker roast malts. This is, to me, a perfect balance; rather than an 3Xtr33m hoppy mess, this is delicate and robust all at once. One of my new fave beers.
