3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
At bit strong, hoppy, and spiced to be something that resembles a English Pale ale, but that is just a problem to do with putting beers in to styles. Now, as for the beer itself, it starts with a strong hop aroma and a citrusy (maybe lemon) flavor. The hops flavor is initially strong as well but after the beer warmed a bit the hop blast died down a bit and everything balance and married together very nicely. The spicing was nicely done. Over all a nice beer. Serving: Bottle

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is belgiany and overcarbonated. Infected?
Cloudy yellow pour,half glass of head,strong carbonation. Alot of orange fruit aroma and that typical belgian fruit aroma from yeast.
Mouthfull of foamy and belgiany fruity with sweet malt. Another year or two and maybe this would have been vinegar,or blow up first? citrusy finish. Citrusy belgiany beer,not getting the english in this.

Bomber from Fischmanís. 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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 22 oz bottle served in a Great Divide cervoise. Batch #37.
A: Pours a hazy apricot color with a two finger height of white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick cap and collar that leave sticky splotches of lace down the glass.
S: Definitive white grape with some rind and pithy bitterness. Slight dried grass with some honey malt sweetness.
T: Grassy with some sweet honey malts. White grape with a subtle, under ripe greenness to it. The Nelson Sauvin hops really add a nice dryness to the beer.
M: Light bodied with a medium to high carbonation level. Subtle drying finish with some sweet green grape to it.
O: Not really an English style, but I donít really care. Itís a really well put together beer that hits it on all levels, especially with the addition of the Nelson Sauvin hops. Iím looking forward to more beers from the PW guys with these nice New Zealand hops.

22 oz bottle served in a Pipeworks snifter. Batch # 126.
A: Pours a hazy orange color with a pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves some soapy lace down the glass.
S: Orange citrus with some notes of lemon peel and white bread. Not overly malty. It captures the "summer" portion quite well in the nose.
T: Same as the nose. Lots of orange peel with some lemon zest and a touch of grapefruit as well. Very mild bitterness on the back end with a nice white bread sweetness.
M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Sweet and citrusy notes on the finish.
O: The PW boys captured the Summer portion of this beer quite well, but I was missing the English portion of this. Not enough malt body. Having said that it was still a highly drinkable and refreshing summer ale.
