Clear copper/amber with a big and lasting off-white head. Most awesome GD hoppy aroma. Grass, citrus, tobacco, and a little peach. Plenty of malt richness and sweetness, and a smooth velvet mouthfeel. Wonderful APA flavour and bitterness, with that perfect GD balance.

Bomber. Aroma of resin and citrus (though not exactly grapefruit). Amber color with a decent white head. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. The flavor is something caramel with a lot of floral and noble hop. The hop has the lead, and the malt slips away. The finish is decently dry, and the hop continues to build. It’s actually rather soft and smooth for such a hoppy drink.

Tap at Pony Bar. Pours a medium amber with a moderate white head. Big hop nose, lots of grass and florals. First flavor is honey and brown sugar, then more bitterness from the hops. Has a nice, bitter bite to it. Really nice.
