Tap at Beer Rev, Oakland. Amber orange pour. Plenty of thick pine and grapefruit on the nose, some floral notes and fairly sweet cake dough malt. Big pine resin in the taste -mouthcoating - pithy grapefruit and orange. Fairly sweet caramel to frame it. More grassy hops. Pretty hot. Lingering piney hop oils. Tongue stripping bitterness. This is a big lad.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Tom. Clear-to-hazy orange with a big white head. Faint aroma of onion peel and hoppy floral. Oniony bitterness and a little dry taste. Full body, a little onion spice finish. Interesting and wonderful.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Great British Beer Festival 2013.
Poured a nearly clear dark golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, biscuit and pine. Citrus flavours with some sweet toffee and dates. Leaves with balanced spruce and hop resin and grain. Good, but sweaty cask notes on the flavour. Iím sure it was better at the brewery...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Bev4Less. Pours nice orangey-amber hue. Good sparkling up the sides of the glass and decent lacy little thin white layer of foam on top. Some caramel, bready, and citrusy hop notes come through in the nose, but itís pretty weak. Taste is solid, pine, passion fruit, more caramel and bread, as well as a touch of something butterscotchy... itís nice. ABV well-disguised.
Good stuff. Very simple, but rock solid and good. One could get oneself easily quite shitfaced on this stuff.

At a tasting, thanks Tom, crystal clear deep orange colour, aroma of tangerine, orange marmalade and herbs, flavour of citrus, white fruits, and a hint of spice, some sweet jamminess but not cloying, bitter but not strong enough for a DIPA. Nice and drinkable.
