WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, - SEP 28, 2012
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 from Taylor in 2014 fall CANBIF. Clear copper with an off white head that mostly fades. Muted and slightly wet hop with a chewy malt presence, moderate carbonation and mild body, slightly stale caramel presence as things dry out and a mild hop bitterness.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 5.3% ABV
Beautiful amber color, clean, with small head. Aroma of refined sugar, vegetables, metallic. Dry mouthfeel; simple caramel flavor with a hint of vegetables and iron (tomato); no discernible hop quality, and a metallic finish.

vadie (1231) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
Jaune pale avec un petit tête blanc que rétréci rapidement mais en laissent les belles dentelles. L’arôme d’houblon très fraîche avec un peu de pin. Quand elle se réchauffe il a un peu de l’arôme caractéristique de Hoyne. Je ne sais pas exactement comment le décrire, mais un peu comme l’arôme d’une brasserie, le malt usé dans la brassage, peut-être. Le goût est très bonne. Léger in bouche et très fine et équilibré, d’houblon fraîche et du pin.

Lagerboy (1936) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
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)

kramer (5828) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2013
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.

Bomber. Pours amber. Hoppy light easy drinking beer worth trying out. Does this come in 6 packs ?

RD400F (226) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2013
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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
