22 oz bottle (batch 53) pours a cloudy light golden color with decent white head and some lacing. Aroma made me say WOW! The aroma is full of lemon and other citrus hops, some spices and pine resin. Taste is slightly bitter with a long dry finish. Medium body without too much carbonation. I expect something different from Pipeworks, and this one definitely delivers. One of their best that I have tried so far.

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

Majestic 22oz; super fruity passion fruit and papaya aroma. Orange-tinted golden color with a lacy white head. Tastes medium sweet, lightly tart, and finishes lightly tannic. Very fruity orange and lemon flavors followed by spiced coriander and black pepper.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2013 NOTE: RE-RATED IN 2013 AS ’MAJESTIC’ -- Bomber. Pours a murky pale golden orange, slight head and little in the way of lacing. Nose is basement catty dankness, guava, peach, lemon grass and citrus. Mouth is amazingly fruity, lots of tropics and mellow stone fruits, lemon zest. I don’t care what RateBeer says about it being an alias, while this is basically a lot like the At Her Majesty’s Pleasure... it is a better version of that beer. Like this one a whole lot. P-Dubs in the HOUSE! ;-)

Bottle. Pours a murky dull, gold color. No head to speak of. Nose is wet paper and (seriously) it smells like piss with some hops. Relieved to find that it doesn’t taste like it smells. Slightly tart up front with lemons, some dank hops bitterness and then some muted citrus, fading into malt and some cereal. Finishes pretty quickly, with a slight hint of warmth. One of the stranger beers I’ve had in a while, but decent.

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.

Bottle. Into solo cup. Pretty cold. Dark on the bus. Can't judge color nor clarity. Tastes yum.

it says "end of summer ale" on the label. 23 °F / Feels Like 13 °F right now, i’d say summer’s ended.

Incredibly drinkable and refreshing. Ripe fruits, coriander, funky yeast, and a dry white wine finish. Very enjoyable.

Pours an orange color with off white head. Aromas of sweet citrus and bitter hops. This has some interesting flavors that balance some bitterness, bread, citrus flavors. Not bad.
