3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Old notes from October.
Month old bottle poured into a snifter
This is my first experience with a wet hop brew so I wasnít sure what to expect. The aroma is nice and bright although I assumed a beer of this style would have a massive hop aroma similar to opening a bag of hops on brew day. The label says grassy and citrusy and I definitely get both with the grassy being more upfront. The taste is super clean and easy to drink with little to no bitter aftertaste. This would make a great summer beer which fortunately, or unfortunately, lasts year round down in Florida.

Bomber. Rich orange pour with a spotty foamy white head. Nice bold aroma of grassy and sweet floral hops. Smooth palate, clean with soft edges. Nice bold hop punch but well balanced. Great beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA (best before December 30, 2013). Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine, pineapple, and grapefruit rind. Well-balanced flavor of piney and grassy hops with notes of toffee and caramel. Bitterness does not linger too long on the palate. This is a well-balanced, easily quaffable pale ale that stands near the top of the heap.

Creamy green aroma. Taste is incredibly fresh, notes of green vegetables, mint and lemon. Finish is light. Excellent taste but lacking depth of body.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer has a clear amber color with a large off-white head and smells like pure hops: resin, floral, and grass. Although the scent isnít too overpowering, the taste hits you hard with a heavy bitterness with a mild sweetness, but these two flavors blend extremely well, leaving you wanting more. Also, the palate very nicely complements the flavor with the thin texture, light body, soft carbonation, and a slightly bitter but definitely long finish. This beer is definitely great and light despite a nice large flavor. Very well done.

Bomber->SA. Clear bright copper with big frothy offwhite head. Aroma and taste a strong pine and citrus hops over malt. Somewhat watery. Lingering bitterness. Taste is a bit off-putting. OK, but disappointing.

Big citrusy hop aroma. Dark golden amber with lacy white fine head. Nice, if somewhat subdued citrus flavor. Smooth, slightly acidic finish with no real bitterness. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Copper with a thick off white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is like the bottle says: grassy and bright. Also features some citrus and caramel malt notes. Taste is grassy and citrusy but malt seems breadier than in the nose. Slight metallic twinge. Palate is full body and prickly carb, disappears quickly from the mouth. Has potential but a little off.
