3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Connecticut Ave again. Pours a deep amber, good foam lacing and residing calmly on top of pour. Aroma is mega-sweet, a little off-putting. Taste then is surprisingly watery in the early palate, followed by somewhat cloyingly malty sweetness and then a mildly bitter hop finish. Not bad, but a bit of a muddled brew, weak where it should be strong (hop presence) and too much malt-sugar-sweetness. Body and mouthfeel are both also too thin. Good to try, but not a regular for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Bronze amber with a solid white head. Nose is sweet and cheesy, a good chunk of resin, grassy and herbal. Flavor is similar, sweet and bitter, some pine, citrus, lots of bitter resin and sugary. Sounded promising but alas it doesn’t really work. Some diacetyl creeps in as it warms a bit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden orange pour with a thin white head. The aroma has a nice bright citrus aroma. A little bit of orange and some light pine and grapefruit. A little bit of soft peppery character as well as touch of lemon peel as well. Fresh and hoppy with a little bit of malt just backing up the hoppiness. Bright and fresh. Lovely stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle labeled as Hop Mania #4 pours up clear amber with copper hues and off white head. The aroma offers up some stunted pine hops, earthy citrus fruit peel and then it rolls into a bit of boozy heat and dark fruity esteriness at the end of the draw. The taste starts somewhat hop neutral and a little malty for a moment and then it picks up muted blunted pine hops. To midway the pine hops move into resiny notes just as orange and lime peel and slivers of sweet malt are noticed. It stays tart with citrus hops as well as pine hops into the after taste. The level of bitterness is pleasing in this one.
