Pours a cloudy gold with nice white head. Aroma is surprisingly malty, but not without its hoppy goodness. Taste reveals a bit more hop flavor, but still not a ton. An ok fresh hop, but somewhat of a let down.

Pours a hazy pale yellow/orange with a hube white head...very light sediment...very nice lacing and retention. Aroma has very light citrus and milldly spicy grassy notes...some light maltiness...bit of hay. Flavor definitely has pronounced hop notes...grassy...and firm pils or light malt backing...a bit sweet and faintly boozy. Mouthfeel is light but creamy...reminds me of a kolsch...and the finish is grassy and spicy.

Faint hazy orange yellow body. Mild hoppy aroma. The body is much more satisfactory. Mild bitterness with a strong hoppy body. Very dry and bitter finish.

earthy spiced aroma with notes of orange, juniper/sweet xmas tree, animal feed graininess and peaches.
the flavor is the same along with an odd herbaceous finish and lingering aftertaste.
evolves on the palate but not in a particularly good way. 7/4/6/3/14

Pour is a dull murky yellow with a large white head. Aroma is floral hops with some pine. Flavor is at first fruity and perfume like with bone dry malt bringing things up after the swallow. Very hoppy for a lager style and easily drinkable.

Bomber shared by Marcus. Pours hazy dark gold with an off-white creamy/bubbly head. Aroma is sort of dusty noble hop - suggests green veg a bit. Med body. Very hoppy. Malt quite submerged by hop. It’s coming our as very fruity and floral in the end. Nice.
