3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber, again from a boxed win.Hazy orange color; creamy head, of which a thin layer is persistent. The aroma is mostly fruity (orange, grapefruit, grapefruit candies). smooth mouthfeel (too much carbonation); yeasty and fruity flavor; even if the very nice fruity profile is not too strong.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber via Stefan! Concentrated floral hop aroma as soon as top is popped. Lots and lots of sticky lacing that re-forms after sipping in my Gahan House goblet. Collectively the hefty amount of malt does support the intensity of the hop register of twangy bitterness. Even so the body is surprisingly on the thinner side. At 7% (and you feel it) a bit more body would fill this critter out to a real meal.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Deep orange amber with a thick meringue of a head that never quits. Aroma has some toasty caramel and bitter grapefruit, some pine too. Balanced palate between the lightly toasty malts and the floral grapefruit hops. Not as bitter as some of the Pizza Port brews Iíve had this trip, but thatís not to say it lacks assertiveness. If anything, it enhances the drinkability of this beer. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pour is a cloudy copper orange with large bubbles in a light tan head. Nose is biscuit malt, rye and caramel with piney bitter hops behind. Taste follows suit but a more expressive hop sensation adds to the finish and short lingering bitterness along with a smooth body and soft carbonation make it fall down the throat quite easily. Also light notes of citric acid in back behind the cascading malt forefront.
