3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 22oz Bottle. Pours golden with a trace of amber, has a generous slightly off-white head that dissipates pretty quickly. The aroma is overwhelming with hop freshness. To anyone that has ever homebrewed, it is like openeing a pack of hops and sticking your nose in the package. The flavor however is slightly off to me. I LOVE HOPS, don’t get me wrong, but you need a little more malt body than this to carry off this amount of hoppiness. It is very close though, and I did enjoy it.

Hazy amber color with a nice beige frothy head. Strong hop aromas with grass and wood notes. Flavor is sweet with caramel traces and refreshing pine notes; good bitterness. Low carbonation and thick body.

Old rating. Excellent sessionable big hop pale. Lots of citrus and grassy hops over moderate bodied malts. Crisp, bitterness. Love the fresh hops really bringing juicy tastes.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Une magnifique bière au nez qui explose de notes de houblon frais, d’épices, d’écorce de citron, pointe de caramel. Bouche tout aussi délicieuse avec une mousse onctueuse, une grande fraîcheur, un arôme de houblon frais persitant et une longue finale sur une magnifique amertume. Un régal...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear pale amber with two fat fingers of rocky white head, good retention, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is earthy, grassy, mild pine, pale malt, mild citrus, black tea. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter, mild black peppery spice. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry finish. (4/5)
Obviously I’m slow on the uptake, but there’s no way I can be effectively reviewing a wet-hopped beer right now. Shouldn’t have bought it in mid-January, when it was fresh four months ago. It’s still just fine, mind you, but I don’t feel like I’m really appreciating the fresh hops. Good, with a green hoppy bitterness, but without being great. (15/20)

Got as an Xmas present. Poured nice light Amber with nice off white head. Aroma beautiful floral citrus hop essence. Flavor perfectly balanced. Amazing session brew. Downed whole bomber way too quick. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper in color with a nice creamy looking head. Smells mildly hoppy and mildly malty. Taste is a nice blend of hoppy and caramel malt. No real bitter finish that I can find personally, tastes pretty sweet in the end. A very easy drinking beer, not really special but very nicely made. I enjoyed it it pretty well.
I had it from a bottle

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep copper color with white head. Aroma is a little bit grassy and hops and a little malt. Taste is a little bit hoppy but really just kind of the standard pale ale. I expected more. It's good but nothing spectacular.

Refrigerated brown bomber, best before December 31, 2014, poured into a snifter. Clear light amber with small white head. Aroma is fresh grass hops, medium body, low carbonation, and little small-bubble lacing. Taste is grapefruit hops, grassy hops, and caramel malt backbone. Solid american pale ale.

22 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a beautiful light gold with a one finger head that steadily dissapates. The taste was quite impressive. Very, very fresh hop taste with little bitterness. Impressed, would get again and recommend.
