22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a small white head. The aroma is mildly sweet malts, light toast, grassy and a hint of citrus. The flavor is grainy pale malts, grassy, light citrus and mild bitterness to the finish. Pretty basic stuff.

Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear copper color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate floral hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations were exceeeded.

Bomber to snifter. Looks solid; a transparent orange with sticky white lacing. Smells doughy and somewhat well-sweet and hoppy. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A decent beer.

Bomber from Bruisin Ales. Straw, grass, bread, and a little caramel in the aroma. The pour is an amber-gold color with a white head. The flavor starts off with sweet grain, stale bread, and biscuity notes leading to a very hoppy, and lengthy, grassy finish. It’s dry and scratchy on the palate. This is unique and a little odd. I like it but honestly think I like their Piedmont Pils a little better.

One of the newer bottle offerings in the area. They’ve had this on draft at their tap room before, but the first they’ve bottled. Glad they did. 22oz bottle, split with my wife, poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear pale gold. Light bubbles rising throughout. A nice frothy white head rest atop, leaving behind great sticky lace all over the glass. The rose is lush with ripe oranges, lemon, lime, tangelo. Really a citrus bomb. I like it. Fresh, crisp mouth that aides drinkability and is refreshing at the same time. The citrus carries over to the flavor as I get grapefruit, bitter orange rind, and a snap of lemon on the back end. The bitterness in this one is fantastic. A nice addition to this style. This could be a MIPA (Mild IPA). Crisp smack of bitterness, but it doesn’t linger, leaving the palate scorched. 4 types of NZ hops were used in this one, including one of my favorites - Jade - and you can tell. Great beer. One I will share with others in upcoming trades, no doubt.

Wow. This is one hoppy beer. Really strong hoppiness to the beer in both taste and aroma. Very clean and easy finish, and really cleans out the palate. Really glad I found this one...

Draft at the source. Clear golden color, white head, solid lacing. Aroma of meadow grass. Taste is bitter lemongrass.
