3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample tray. Yellow. Soft fruit scent; orange and peach. Flavour jumps right out. Spicy hop, nut and fruit. Very interesting. I want more. Should have bought a bottle to contemplate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Faint pine aroma. Darker straw colored with receding white head. Sappy, resinous hops begin and yield to a caramel malt background. Finish is crisp from bitterness. Body is on the lighter side, making this a sessionable beer. Decent hop flavor overcomes lack of aroma. Enjoyable.

Light yellow-orange pour. Nice balance on the nose, slightly hop-forward. Tons of grains in the flavor. Almost too much. Still quite bitter from the hop content.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy pale orange, thick foamy white head fades quickly. Aroma of lemon, grass, floral hops, grain. Taste is also grainy with lots of mild citrusy hops and a light bitter finish. Somthing missing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 22-oz bottle this poured a hazy orange with a medium sized foamy off-white head. Nose is mild and of citrus and floral hops. Medium body with a lively mouthfeel. Flavor is mildly bitter and this carries over into the finish. Very easy drinking.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber served in a lager glass. Pours golden yellow with a bit of a haze and little head. Aroma and flavors are standard mild pale ale-esque. Light fruit and malt. Decently bitter and crisp finish. I’m getting the last of the bottle here so I think I will need to retaste at some point

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. Seemed a lot like their IPA-lite. Dry, bitter, but mellower all around and with a gentler aroma. Piney and citrusy with a touch of caramel but mostly paler malts and some toast. Medium-light bodied and zesty carbonation. Definitely a good option if you are having a couple.
