3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Translucent Amber, a little fiery, moderate to large frothy white head, nice lacing, little
to no carbonation.   Soft floral hop nose, a little bit of pine or spruce.   Light hop flavor up front,
lingers for a bit but then dimishes.   This too is a fairly light Pale Ale.   Clean, flavorful up front
but fades quickly.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Pretty good if you want a lighter example Pale
Ale.   Great for summer sessions.   Otherwise, not a hefty/hoppy Pale Ale.

Bomber. Pours a cloudy gold copper with a small frothy off white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is floral hops grapefruit and pine. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet hop and a bit watery with citrus in the finish. A decent Pale Ale from Full Sail.

Thanks to Rosebud Butternuts for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is decent, but not as good as I expected. I get some grain and grassy hop notes but not too much else.
The flavor is a little bit better. I get some orange and grass notes from the hops, as well as some wheat, biscuit and grain notes from the malt. Low bitterness.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
Not a bad beer, but nothing too special. Thanks for sharing Eric.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; golden orange with a skyscraper of a tight white-foamed head. Aroma is yeasty and citric. It drinks with a musty horse blanket essence, and with a dusting of herbal spice. Despite all that, the beer comes across as a bit shallow, light in body. The head won’t quit though. (#4157, 7/1/2011)

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Wow, a very good beer here. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is hops, touches of malts. Flavor is a nice, clean citrus hop one, with slight notes of malts, but for the most part, a good, decent, extremely well hopped pale ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is crackery and bready with a good deal of floral and citrus hop notes. Nice fresh and crisp hoppy aroma. Pours light golden with a soapy head that lasts. The flavor is more crackery and bready malts with floral and citrus hops, a bitey bitterness, very sharp and lingering fruity and floral bitterness. Solid lingering bite and some resin notes as well. High drinkability level.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sent from Hayduke and it was enjoyed via Facebook chat. A cloudy copper color with a very small soapy head that has a short life. The aroma seemed funky and a bit odd while cold. That definitely improved with warmer temperatures. Cascade hops are noted in both aroma and flavor. Citrus fruit, sourness that is unripe fruit. A hint of pepper spice. For the style this is down the middle. A rocky beginning but a solid finish. It is a nicely crafted beer.
