Hazy amber beer, good bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and crisp. Minerals. Sweetish malts, mild cream, whisper of honey. Brief flash of bright tangerine, a more steady orange. A touch of vodka like alcohol! Good tropical fruits before a smooth and semi dry finish. Mild hop spice at the very end. Peel bitter linger. Nice.

brokensail (15211) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Pours amber in color with a finger of off-white head. Kind of past its prime, it seems. Sweet caramel and toffee malt with some bready malt. Floral hops and a bit of citrus, but not all that hoppy. A little bit herbal and piney with some floral notes. Sweet toffee and bread, but overall just kind of meh.

Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Fred’s the man! Pours copper with a creamy/foamy/bubbly light beige head. Hop aroma is dank! It’s not harsh. It’s just very heavy duty. Floral and citrus, probably. Full bodied. It’s got a lot of light roast malt. It’s almost suggesting barley wine. But there is a load of citrus, floral and resin hop. Curl around this and take a nap. Succulent. Finishes both dry and sweet. Taste is just wonderful. Makes my salivary glands ache with pleasure.
