Bomber from High Hops. Aroma: pine, floral, molasses. Palate: medium body, bitter finish, sticky textrue, average carbonation. Taste: lightest sweet to great bitterness, but not overpowering. Overall, really solid pale ale; perhaps more bitter than most pale ales, but balance is good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Peanut-accented pine sap and orange jelly and leafy green hop character let down by the absurdly dull malt (Grand Marnier, apple, caramel, peanut brittle). Green, bitter, syrupy with medium sweetness. Pasty / starchy yeast. Pretty simple resin and hop acid IPA that they insist is an American Pale Ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought grass, biscuit, grain into a bit of herbal and floral hops as well, some slight fruity orange, lemon peel in there. Taste is a mix of herbal, grass, some grain, hints of orange peel into more earthy, spicy notes, finishing fairly bitter, slightly dry.
