3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance is soft, a heavily carbonated pale golden orange color with a fine, thick off-white head and thick and bubbly lacing. A very attractive beer, better than I expected. Aroma is of extremely fresh hops with hints of pine and caramel. Flavor is much different than the aroma, almost tart with a light bitterness, grainy sweetness, and a touch of metal.

Sampled at the brewery in Boston. A very malty and not so hoppy ale. Very unique.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Session #33. Best by: 01/15/11. A clear copper pour with a medium-sized antique white head. Good balance in the aroma with some caramel maltiness, cereal grains, oranges, citrus rinds, and spiciness. Thin to medium-bodied. Sweet upfront in the taste with some caramel and cereal grains. A tad biscuity in the middle. Some bittering grapefruits, oranges, and citrus rinds at the end. Slightly dry. A little spiciness throughout. Excellent balance all the way through. Clean and sessionable, though rather subdued and boring for the style.

Pours a watered-down clear copper color with no head. Thin white surface scum. Aroma of honey, candi sugar, and hops. Flavor is a bit weak up front-sweet mostly honey with a clear fresh hop flavor at the back end. Decent beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a rich amber with a medium white head leaving some good lacing down the sides. The aromas are citrus (mostly lime I think), grass, dough and a little pepper. The mouthfeel is watery and lightly bitter with a slight resin. This was very one dimensional when drinking. While the aromas were different for a pale ale the mouthfeel and flavor were not that great. Cheers!

Orange color with a beige head. Aroma of floral hops and candy. Taste is medium sweetness, lightly sour, medium body, average carbonation. Disapointing.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Oak Tree. Session 33/’10 Pours orange amber with a 4 finger foamy off-white head. Very hoppy aroma. Med body/mild carb. Flavor is firm roast caramel with a lot of floral/resin hops; veg hops. And that keeps up through the beer. A nice hop burn builds in the mouth. IBU is 38 per the label. It’s a nice tasting brew, which is fairly different in my mouth.
