COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spring forward with this refreshing seasonal ale. Notes of toasted malt up front with a bright and crisp Northwest hop finish. It’s a session beer that everyone can enjoy.

Bomber. Poured pale orange gold with thin fast dissipating white head. Thin brief whiff of hop and citrus. Stripy malt and hoppy flavour with a hop finish. Drinkable and not too expensive.

Zymurgeist2 (1197) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 10, 2010
In a tulip glass at Monk’s Kettle at a Ninkasi paired dinner. Pours a brushed gold with a fluffy white head. Lots of buiscuit and bread with a clean meadow scent showing very late. Palate is very bitter and some nice grass hops at the end. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied to slightly thin.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAY 23, 2010
22oz bottle. Rating #68. Slightly hazy medium orange with a little brown and an off-white head. A lot of toasted maltiness right up front which pretty much dominated any other aroma’s that may have been present. Slight bitterness and a bit more toasted malt, but it was not as heavy as the aroma, it also had a bit of citrus to finish it off. (1253)

chadje (184) - California, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Hazy amber,thin head. Piney citrus hop smell. Taste is pretty good, but a very tart and strong bitter tastes that almost ruins. Not sweet enough for my liking for a pale ale.

phaleslu (7173) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2011
22 oz. bottle from curly- thanks, Jason! Pours a somewhat cloudy bright golden orange color with an inch-thick, rocky off-white head that leaves some lace in the Duvel tulip. Aroma of dry grains, toasted malts, fresh cut grass, toasted sugars, straw, and herbs. Flavor of grassy and floral hops, pale and sweet malts, faint soap, and limestone. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, mineral mouthfeel. A little mouth-coating bitterness as well. Decent APA.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Lightly clouded orange hue, delicate but enduring head formation. Herbal, hoppy aroma, a little mint, mild caramel malt. Some caramel but very light on the malt, fair amount of hop citrus in the finish makes this more of a refresher than a serious pale ale. At least it drinks well while there’s a nice touch of orange in the aftertaste.

IrishBoy (3920) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Bomber from BevMo Salinas. Nose is floral and hints of citrus. Very lightly hazy urine yellow with a medium yellow tinged head (should be drunk out of a urine sample cup?) Flavor is lightly bitter with lemony citrus hints.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Clear dark yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is lemon and citrus. A hint of pine notes in there. Lots of Simcoe hops maybe. Tons of lemony aspects to this one. Flavor was lightly bitter, citrus, lemon. Nice drinker.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle. Light orange with a frothy off white head. Bitter citrus aroma. Initial flavors of toasted malt quickly give way to a grassy hop finish with a lingering bitter aftertaste Dry texture with average carbonation. A little heavy for a ’refreshing’ Spring seasonal but not bad.

seymour (1588) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Shared from a big brown bottle into a nonic glass, thanks gregwilsonstl. It poured a clear, light golden colour with substantial white foam, very long-lasting with lace. Strong hoppy aromas, some grains and freshly-cut grass underneath. A crisp, almost neutral malt flavour with strong bitterness balanced against it, resiny and citrusy hop flavours. American profile for sure, but not overwhelmingly grapefruity. It reminded me of Bells Third Coast Beer.
