Great clean aroma. Enormous head that quickly begins looking like soap suds. Slightly cloudy but nice golden color. Not bitter, but tart, easy going down. Right amount of carbonation. If this is considered an IPA, it’s my favorite... probably because it doesn’t taste like an IPA.

Pours a pale, cloudy orange. Aroma is that grassy peppery saison with some citrus in there. Taste is wonderful. New Holland did the right thing here, didn’t overpower us with hops, giving the beer very solid hop flavor and bitterness, but not too much. This raises the typical bland and mild saison (in my experience) to a new level. Excellent brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not a bad spring or summer brew (depending on how hot your summers are...). Light & crisp citrus zest with a nice floral overtone that lasts while complimenting the bitters in the aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle. Light orange color, with a medium, beige head and solid lacing. The aroma is big resinous and citrusy hops, lemon zest, salt, and some funk. Musty and chalky sweetness, and mild, buttery hop bitterness that lingers through the finish. Medium body, acidic, silky, and surprisingly smooth. Overall, this is a nicely funky, hoppy, easy-drinking beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 6-12-2012 @ 800 Degrees (Fort Wayne, IN). This draft beer pours a small ivory head that was mostly lasting, transparent body, spotty amounts of lacing, very little carbonation, and a golden hue. The Aromas consist of malt, wheat, funky yeast, hops, fruity, and spicy. This beer taste sweet, bitter, malty, yeasty, spicy, and pine hops. The Palate is tingly and semi-dry. This beer is light-medium bodied. In conclusion, this beer is quaffable, a "hophead" beer and is worth trying.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber poured into a shaker. Pours a slightlt cloudy burnt orange with full thick head. Aroma is very fruity. Loads of tropical and citrus fruits with a bunch of Belgian yeast and a little bubblegum and spice at the end. Taste is light bitter. Belgian yeast and herbal and citrus hops dominate. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Soft carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Not my favorite but very enjoyable.
