Pretty tasty for a beer straight up called a pale ale. Nice burst of hops and totally crushable. Put a bomber down in like 10 minutes. Smells super fresh, like all the Mother Earth beers do. Easy drinker, with a pungent hop flavor. Yay. Thank you!

Bottle. Orange with a big head that took time to diddipate. Floral and hoppy aroma that leads to a hoppy aroma. Hops then come into their own.
Medium body and pretty impressive. My first from this brewery.

Pours with just too much head, had to scoop the head out twice. Aroma is lush tropical fruits. A little watery but some nice tropical fruit flavours.

Bottle; amber orange color with a clingy and frothy head. Aroma was great; herbal and citrus with some orange and vanilla like notes. Flavor was vibrant for the style; not overhopped, but great hoppy flavor. Some toasted biscuit backbone. Good stuff.

Wired stale nose. Poured orange and clear. Over done on strange hops. No malt character. Seemed like hop tea. But not in good way. Meh

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Yeasty nose, with floral hopping, hibiscus-like, and small spice. Hazy dark straw color, with a hige soap-sudsy and meringue-like head. Grainy initial, overripe dates, tropical fruit, and flavors thin out quickly in md and final. Medium body. Intriguing nose -- the Chinook and Citra create something new and unusual. Flavors are so-so.
