3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy copper amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white rocky head that was mostly diminishing but did have excellent spotty and clingy lacing.
The aroma was of a straw malt, a strong herbal hop and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (over ripe grapefruit).
The taste was bitter and acetic with a mild caramel note in the beginning with the finish being rather bitter, hoppy and pungent with the taste of over ripe fruit. The flavor lasted a decent while after the swallow allowing one to totally get the full effect of the hoppy citrus ending.
Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a nice lively carbonation.
Overall an average Pale Ale with a twist, it is a brew that is just a tad bit on the harsh side of hoppy...

Bomber. Wow.... Totally sub par for a pale. But I am impressed with this amount of hops with 5.1abv.

Bomber. Light citrus aroma. Must have mellowed in the bottle. Nice pale ale. Not to hoppy not to bitter. Somewhat sharp finish. Drinkable

Draft at Amos Howard’s. Pours yellow with a half inch of white foam. Leaves a nice amount of lacing. Nice citrus hop notes on the nose which continue onto the tongue. Finishes crisp and clean. Solid example of style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange-tinged golden ale, mostly clear. Bad label, slightly peppery, lightly fruity aroma. Mostly dry, tangy, not a hop bomb. Pretty malty, but not overly sweet. Thanks to LuckyDog for hauling this back from Caroline.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear light golden amber with a big-bubbled head and tiny dots of lace. Typical hoppy pale ale - light malt gives way to pine hops that, even though they aren’t strong, dominate the brew right through the finish. Decent, but nothing that stands out from the competition.

22oz bottle, greatest cap ever. Deep amber color, froathy white head. Perfume aroma underneath the toasted grains & caramel nose. Mild tastes. Sweet malts, well balanced with the sharp pine hops. A very decent American Pale Ale. (3448)

Really interesting beer. Feels almost like an IPA rather than an APA. Pours a darker golden color with hints of orange to it. Good level of hoppiness to it. Very light and easy to drink.
