3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz Batch #53. Pour has a deep golden color and a covering of thick white head. Aroma has plenty of nelson hops, some light spicing, citrus rind, and a bit of toffee like malt. Mouth feel comes across light and the carbonation is solid. Flavor again leads in with the hops and they get quite dry and catty with some bitterness picking up. The citrus gets a bit muted and there is a light spice that mixes well with the malted side making me feel the English thing going on. They certainly are some zesty hops and the beer showcases them well.

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

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.

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.
