Bomber. Orange-brown with a nice white head. Underwhelming aroma and flavor. You get some fresh hop action here but not a ton. Seems a bit reserved. What’s there is nice, but I want more of it. Enjoyable but not memorable.

Tap at Pizza Luce. Orange with thick white lacing trailing. Grassy, lemony hops and light malts. Taste is bitter, but reserved. Medium to lighter body. Good pale ale, hoppiness less than expected though.

Pours a medium orange-amber with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, grass, sweet malts, and caramel. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a very nice APA.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle from Picadilly. Best by 12-29-13. Pours a translucent copper color with a medium white head that has ample sticky lacing and fair retention. The aroma is somewhat mild with musty citrus and chlorophyll . The taste, unlike the nose, is very robust with grapefruit, grass, melons and limes. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes short and clean. Overall: Loved it, but at 8.99 per bottle I consider it a poor value for the money. Surely there must be a way to get fresh hop ales to my table without gouging my wallet.

On tap at an outdoor fresh hop festival. Dank smell on the aromas - kind of mutes the smells from the individual hops. Drinks well and bitter.
