4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler Fill from The Filling Station. This beer reminds me a lot of a light version of their Imperial IPA. Itís definitely a pale ale but leans ever so closely to an IPA. Big piney tropical notes on the nose, very hoppy aroma for a pale. Taste follows... lots of papaya, tropical fruit, bananas, and a semi-sweet malt back. Absolutely awesome pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Honey gold with small foamy head. Aroma is floral and fruity. Taste- resinous hops, fruity and floral. Well balanced with crackery malt. I also seem to get some rye. Solid pale ale...hopped up enough to be considered an IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Hazy gold. Thin, sticky, lasting, white head. Very fusty, minty, herbal, orange hop. Bit of banana sweet, which is fine by me. Taste is fusty bitter. Fairly dry. Full palate. A little greasy. Herb oiliness. Finishes light dry, and long, resinous, bitter. Very nice. Iíd put this at 8%, if I didnít know better. Big and tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Mostly clear orange copper, firmer off-white lasting foam. Tropical fruity floral hop aroma. Quite floral, fruity hop forward taste, mild lightly sweet pale malts behind. Average carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. Grapefruity finish. Well crafted, but more of an IPA makes it: NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a thick head. Floral and honey on the nose along with a lot of toast, dark toast and malt. Tasted malty, refreshing and lots of bitter hops, floral and citrus. A bit sweet. Not a revolution but a superb example of the style.

On the upper end of really really good, flavorful aromatic pale ales. This beer seemed super fresh and hoppy as all get out without being overly bitter and still low on the alcohol. Very well done."
