GABF. Clear amber beer. Very aromatic and bittering hops with a medicinal note. The aroma alone made me sneeze! 3.

5th June 2012
Hazy amber - brown beer, good pale tan head. Light palate, semi dry and crispy. Creamy malt provides silky smoothness. Hops are minty and piney. Whisper of orange. The sage blends in nicely here. The juniper adding a nice subtle fruit. Finishes smooth and malty creamy with fresh hop spice. Nicely thought out IPA - the additions sepperating it out from the crowd. Very drinkable.

"Bomber courtesy of slowrunner split between a friend and I on a relaxing Friday evening. Not big or hoppy as an IIPA is supposed to be, but I found enjoyment from the well thought out additions of sage and juniper that make this beer stand out. The sage is upfront in the aroma and leads to a mild citrus and flowery profile. Soapy amber/copper body with a diminishing bubbly head and streaky lacing. Filling and surprisingly balanced. The malts and herbs seemed to subdue the hops quite a bit. Flavor is full of herbs and flowers along with caramel and fresh dough. The juniper and sage are easily detectable and really add a nice dimension. "

From notes. Amber/gold. Just a few bubbles. All hops in the aroma - resinous, pungent, floral, pine. Flavor is more balanced with malt notes of cookie and caramel. Light/medium body, low carbonation, weak on the palate. Meh.
