4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange body, rhick white foamy head. The aroma is very full, with grapefruit and orange, some flowers. Excellent palate, medium heavy. The taste is fruity as well, with a slow to start but long to mature and finish aftertaste that has hops and even some nuts. Wow!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml Bomber fresh from Brewery.
Pours a gold-amber ale in my glass. Large puffy white cap with great retention and lacing qualities.
Nose: citrusy, fruity with a deep caramel malt tone ( abundant Diacetyl too which becomes more dominant as the beer warms - butterscotch overwhelms when warmer)
Slick mouth feel. Nice chew of bready sweet malts in front are balanced by light hopping Diacetyl is detectable in flavor more so than aroma but it is some what subdued by the malts . Finishes nicely with an increasing bittering and a great bready-bicuity maltiness...lingering bitterness.
This is not an over the top intense Pale but one that is full of flavor and very drinkable...great session ale but the price is a tad steep for that. I really wanted to rate this higher but in spite of it’s great hopping and malt profile The diacetyl really is unforgivable in a beer marketed as premium with a premium price. They did this to me with the green tea ale as well and I really wanted to like that beer as well..

CAN 473 ml from bunget. Hazy golden, white frothy head. Moderate intensity aroma of tropical fruit, sweet citrus, a bit of dank, some caramel. The taste starts sweet, somewhat empty in the middle, CO2, clean moderately bitter finish. Quite nice, a bit too sweet.

Can from my brother in law. He rules. One time he muled me back about $300 worth of danish beer, now he just mules me random canadian garbage. Awesome. Thanks Tompete! Smells like malt forward grape fruit juice. Similar flavor, a bit astringent, some aspirin. Bitter finish, not bad.

Grapefruit, pine and hops. Cloudy amber with a thin white head, long lasting head. Grapefruit and hops...well balanced malt. Interesting, but not great.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orangée, un peu voilée, elle garde un certain montant de mousse blanche pendant plusieurs minutes. À l’odeur, ce sont les fruits tropicaux (ananas, mangues) qui prennent toute la place. Plutôt douce en bouche jusqu’à atteindre la finale, plus musclée et plus amère. Pourtant, malgré ces caractéristiques et une présence de sucres qui l’arrondit, elle manque un petit peu de puissance. Elle reste cependant très agréable, et bien fidèle à un style qui n’a plus rien à cacher.
