3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Poured clear copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex yeast and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium complex bittersweet hop flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer that exceeded my expectations.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can, canned 1/29/13. Can is labeled 6.8%. Clear yellow orange color. Thin white head, little lace. Nice, grassy citrusy hop nose. Medium body. Smooth lighter carbonation, nice crisp character to it. More dry texture. Bitter taste, zesty sweet, with some belgian yeast flavors. Adds a kind of pear, citrus and spicy note. Nice orange citrus flavor, the Citra hop is noticeable here, but the belgian yeast adds a bit of sweetness that I’m not sure I dig. Wouldn’t be a belgian style pale ale though without it, though. Call it an American-Style BPA. Solid.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Very clear and dark golden. Minimal head. Some nice hops hit my nose first. Floral and citrus with honey. Those are tasted with with dry bitterness. Some yeast but just a bit. This is tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber color with good carbonation out of the bomber. Crisp taste with mild spices and hops, very drinkable. Finish is smooth...it loses flavor as it warms up. Probably served a bit too warm. Wouldn?t mind trying this again in the summer.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 Recently re-tried this. It is yeast dominated but can pick up the hops mroe. Tried it again form the bottle and this is really awesome when it warms up.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Pours a slightly hazy orangey color with a slightly off-white head excellent retention and lacing. Nose is some hops, a little dankness, with a hint of straw and Belgian yeast. Mouth is tropical fruity hops up front, then some dough and yeast, finishes rather abruptly. Good, but not great.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not sure what the deal is on this one... Had this via growler when it was originally released.. Aroma was bright with tropical fruit forwardness, somewhat dank and extremely bright... Flavor on the other hand didn’t contribute as much. Semi-sweet crystal malt it seems with a semi-fresh citrus hop sensation that really didn’t live up to its nose. Just shy of medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Pretty drinkable overall with a nose that quite I overcame the flavor. Def needs to be consumed fresh.
