2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber - pour is fizzy but headless - it kind of looks like cream soda, which is ironic because it kind of smells like cream soda, too - very syrupy sweet nose, with a lot of vanilla and sugary character not unlike the cheap syrups some people like to put in their coffee - there is also a fair amount of booziness, light plumy fruitiness - mouthfeel is simultaneously spritzy and oily - very syrupy sweet up front - the fruit is fairly strong - some tanginess and acidity late try desperately to balance, but fail to get the job done - very boozy, alcoholic finish - I don’t know why I keep buying these lips of faith beers - I can’t remember the last time I really enjoyed one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours like a semi fizzy apple juice with some off white head. Smells of plum, apricot, sweet malt and a bit of spicy alcohol. Taste is mostly just sweet fruit with just a hint of spice. They hide the 10% really well. I could see this brew being dangerous as it goes down easily. The mouth feel is a bit of carbonation but largely oily. Laces really well on the sides of my glass.

Tap at Happy Gnome. Pale golden pour with a smaller white head. Wow - the plum and apricot hits you square in the face. Very sweet - overly so.

(22oz bomber) clear yellow-orange with fine white bubbles. Nose of fruit, sweet, bit funky. taste is quite sweet, stone fruit, seltzery carbontion, nice soda-like linger which is fine for this beer. Would probably be good on a hot day when very cold.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 crystal clean pour. no head lingering head, but well carbonated. smells of interesting fruit flavors and sativa plants.plum comes through on the nose as well. taste is round and not anything amazing. Lingering finish on the palate is malty and tastes like plum. not a lot really going on here, but at 6.50 a bomber its worth sipping.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler. Pours a golden hue with a thin white ring barely there. Aroma of fresh yeast, rich ripe fruits, plums and apricots for sure. Taste is thick and syrupy fruits dominate followed by a load of alcohol. Interesting. Needs some carbonation to maybe lighten it up. Distinct wine like finish. Dry and fruity. As it warms it becomes more wine like.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Honey pour, struggles to form a white fizzy head. The smell is tangy and fruity with a slight funk, yogurty, slight herbal/floral hops, very perfumey. Flavor is tangy, quite a bit of tangy medicinal qualities, metallic, children’s multivitamin-esque. Just not hitting the mark for me. Too medicine-like.
