3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber, drinking now. Ruby haze, bubbly head and nice lacing with tobacco and orange on the nose. Very very fresh hops, of course, that aren’t too strong, I think this will be really appreciated by fans. The flavour is extremely well balanced with sweetness from the malts and bitterness from the hops... the former is actually stronger than the latter, so yes this definitely fits the American Pale Ale designation. Love the resins to be found here, that’s the real star. Solid.

Bomber. Clear lighter orange copper, foamy white head settles and fades. Fresher aromas of mild citrus herbal hops and sweet pale malt. Sweet caramel biscuit malt taste, light juicy citrus leafy hops, some earth. Average carbonation, light bodied, moderately hopped. Nice fresh sessional pale. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose is just mildly hoppy, especially for a wet hopped beer. The nose is actually a bit metallic smelling with a little caramel malt. The flavor is pretty light in the hops department as well, some green leafy hops, minimal bitterness. This one just doesn’t thrill me at all, wet hop beers are supposed to be much brighter and juicier than this. Lighter bodied with a fizzy carbonation level and some light lingering sweetness. Pretty boring stuff, I was hoping for much more.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
650ml bottle to glass, pours a bright transparent amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma....smells like a fresh bag of hops...piney, herbal...but not much in the was of citrus. Malt presence not very forward. Taste is mild grassy hop, slight sour/bitter, burnt rubber. Palate is off balance, but expected. Mouthfeel light, co2 medium. Overall...expecting more for some reason but...it’s just a pale ale. Leaps and bounds better than the average pisswater but easily forgettable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wet hopped IPA. Expected bolder, fresher taste, found it started to taste watered down the more you drank it. Pours amber with with a nice frothy head. Smells of grapefruit, pine, citrus. Palate is smooth texture, lower carbonation. Taste is very much citrus and pine. With a fairly wet finish. The finish was almost tasteless, giving it that water down aspect. Not bad but not great.

500. Thanks r! Very cool treat. Pours a crystal clear golden medium amber. Rich hoppy nose, showing peppers and green leafy freshness. Very well executed for bottled fresh hop. Creamy medium body with bright crisp carb. Lightly toasted caramel with peppery plantlike fresh hop mid palate. Mild finish.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2013 650mL bottle, pours a very hazy copper with a small white head. Nose brings out some metallic notes, some fresh hops, and some bready malt. Flavour brings out fresh doughy malts, somewhat metallic notes, and floral hops. A bit too metallic, but nicely flora. Easily drinkable, but rather standard pale ale.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong lemony, piney, resiney hop aroma dominates.Some caramel malt aroma behind hop. Sweet aroma both from hop and malt. Grape or grape seed like ester.
Clear amber color. Off white head with good retention. Leaves good lacing
Bready malt comes first, then strong leafy, grassy, hay like hop flavor, then grainy malt. Hop flavor lingers long. Balance towards hop side.Mid-high hop bitterness. Caramel malt matches well with hop character.
Mid body with moderate carbonation. Very little alcohol warmth. Grassy astringency from hop lingers long.
Made me feel like drinking whole hop juice, expressing whole hop character very well. Could be a little more sophisticated.

Smells kinda like grapefruit. Tastes like drinking a pine tree, in the best way imaginable. Fairly bitter after Taste. Very impressed.
