Tasted from a 22oz. bomber. it poured a cloudy amber with a thick, frothy, lasting head, and lively carbonation. Bright hop aroma and a bitter, yeasty hop taste. Definitely off the beaten IPA path.

Had it from a 22oz bomber, poured a hazy shade of orange, with a cappuccino like foamy head, and a sweet aroma. The taste is hop front and a funk aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange gold pour with a slight haze and a massive long lasting white head. Sweet funky citrus gets your attention as you pour. First taste is citrus funk followed by a little hop bitterness and finishes with sour. Finish is the only part that was not to my liking.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle into tulip.
Aroma: Nose is floral with a citrus scent. Hard to describe some of the ’sour?’ aroma. very wild, some brettanomyces.
Appearance: Cloudy bright orange with rocky off-white head that remains until the last sip leaving laces on the glass.
Taste: On the bitter side, slightly sour.
Palate: Light bodied and very fizzy! Long bitter finish.
Overall: I enjoyed this beer as it is very unique and refreshing. Thinking about cellaring a bottle for a year and seeing how it changes. The only problem I had with this beer was when I opened the bottle it foamed over and got all over my table!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle from 2012 courtesy of agl108. A murky rust pour with tons of chunky floaties and a massive meringue-like head that leaves plenty of lacing behind. The aroma is funky and sour, almost to the point that I suspect it may be infected. Kumquats, zesty citrus rinds, lemon juice, wheat, and yeast feature in the aroma. Thin to medium-bodied on the way down. Caramel and a sweet cereal graininess upfront taste-wise. Some juicy citrus flavors and zesty rinds at the bitter/dry end. Yeasty. Mineral water-like. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden with a thin white head. Aroma is strong citrus. Flavor is hops with an even stronger citrus oil flavor which becomes more apparent as it warms. Finish leaves a little bitter astringency on the back of the tongue. Pretty interesting.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Warm orange color, hazy bodied, fresh green tealike aroma. Seems to evaporate on the tongue, moderate carbonation, mild flavors with some lingering hop bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Strong aroma is crisp and fruity, mainly pear and banana, with a malty undertone. Pours a clear amber with a fairly thick and rather persistent off-white head. Flavor has fruity, yeasty and malty notes, a little fruit sweetness and a hint of hops. Texture, though, leaves something to be desired, on the thin side and barely fizzy. Good as a companion to a meal.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber---> Tulip. Pours a hazy amber orange with a small bubbly head and mild lace. Aroma is very muted funk and light citrus. Not much going on in the smell department. Taste is pretty sour funk and some light clan citrus with yeast notes. Kind of flat on the tongue but not overly thin. Overall a very uninspiring beer.
