3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Holiday Wine. Pours amberish gold with a 3 finger foamy, clingy ringy white head. Aroma is rather perfumey over light malt. Medium plus body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is pale malt, but a little roasty, and a lot of grassy/spicey hop. However, the whole flavor thing is almost a unity - this is really tastey, and the aroma continues perfumey/floral. Then as it all washes away it goes grassy flavor. Dry. Leaving bitter in the mouth. Never had anything that this reminds me of. Good stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The pour is a light orange color with a fluffy white head on it.
S: This is very sweet on the nose with a sugar character and a bit of bread. The hops are appropriate for a pilsner, floral and a bit of spice.
T: The flavor is incredibly short lived, absolutely unlike any other beer that I’ve come across. Sweet and bready with a hint of coconut and then...nothing.
M: Medium bodied with a smooth, medium carbonation.
D: Not a bad tasting beer, but the shortness of the flavor baffled me. I’m not sure what caused that, but it at least made this beer more interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden with a tiny off white head. Aroma had quite a few grassy hops, pale malt and hints of caramel. Flavour had loads of grassy hops, pale malts, caramel and a solid bitternes towards the end. Dry and clean. Lovely take on the style.

Tap at La Jolla. Clear yellow pour. Malty aroma, light fruit, honey, wheat bread. Flavor is crisp and clean with an earthy hops to go with the nice caramelly malts. Not bad at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
fresh bottle from Texas Liquor (in Carsblad, Cal.) Very easy to drink hoppy beer. An understated bitterness that was most pleasant during a long luncheon. Mild hoppy aromas. Some citrus, medium mouthfeel, and one-quarter inch of retained head on cloudy lightly orange body. Satisfying, not heavy, sure not a double IPA and cannot be held up to that sort of hop assault.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours with a clear golden body and a large white head. Aromas of bitter, spicy, herbal noble hops. Very pungent hoppiness. Light sweetness, and breadiness. Some fruit coming from the hops as well (I guess, it isn’t the lager yeast). Taste is bready, nutty, herbal, grassy, spicy, sticky noble hops. Very abrupt and clean finish. Finishes [thankfully] nice and dry, with a lingering delicate malt profile. Well crafted, but I don’t absolutely love it. Not bad though. Lively bubbles.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Imperial pils, it is an oxymoron. This one is sweet, like a pils version of a malt liquor.
