3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle served in a snifter. Batch #52. Wow the number 1 in English Pale Ale, well, Holy hell. The aroma is full of lemon and other citrus hops, some spices and pine resin. Taste is vinous and grape like. Also has a dank old hop taste. Citrus notes. And I looked at older ratings and indeed this is an old bottle (not happy about that fact) A long dry finish. Medium body. Would love to know what this would have tasted like in Nov of last year.

Murky burnt plum brown, minimal head. Very earthy, grapefruit and slightly cheese rind. Taste is citrus with some grape skins. musky and dry. Pretty smooth for 7% minimal bitterness. (how old is this?)

Pours a rather cloudy, golden-yellow, with good-sized head. Some floral hop aroma. Flavor is fairly smooth, with hops and malt sweetness, along with some strange spice tangs in the background--coriander and orange peel, perhaps? Doesn’t really taste that much like a pale ale. More like a witbier or something on those lines. Interesting but not my favorite.

Bomber batch #53 pours a cloudy yellow with a thick white head, decent lacing. Smells of melon, grapefruit, orange, alcohol. Tastes of orange peel, grapefruit,abit of maltiness in the middle with a slight chalky finish. Very smooth& drinkable. Would be great on a hot summer day.

Aroma is tropical fruit/resinous hops, fruit and an undercurrent of malts. The flavor is tropical fruit, fruit, biscuit malts, light strawberry/berry sweetness and a dryish/tart finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Fischman’s. Pours a cloudy, somewhat foamy pale yellowish-golden with a spongy white head leaving nice lacing. Aroma has sweet grassy hops, pine, citrus and toffee. Very nice and inviting! Taste is of sweet toffee, spicy pine, some lemony citrus and some herbalness. Quite light and effervescent. Finishes very dry, light and sweet. A very tasty offering from Pipeworks. Not sure how true to "English Pale" style it is, but it is tasty.

Straw colored pour with enough suds to wash a truck. Yeasty doughy nose and taste. Quite enjoyable taste but champagne like carbonation.

2000th American Beer Reviewed! From bottle at the FoBAB documentary party. Actually the last Pipeworks beer I tested, but I just want to enter ratings while I have time. Very pungent tropical fruit aroma, maybe gooseberry. Slight foam on top of a dense beer. Nelson Sauvin hops plus the citrus make it quite fruity, with kiwi on top of the nose. Malt does not quite back up the hops, so they stand by themselves.
