3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The appearance is a slightly hazy orange color with a medium white head, and the aroma blends resin and floral hops with caramel and toasty malts. The taste is quite bitter on the front, but that fades fairly quickly to a mild bitter level; also, a slightly sour and slightly sweet flavor persists throughout the flavor. The palate fuses a medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, and a slightly bitter yet somewhat sweet finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Aroma of grassy hops. Slight citrus. Fairly clear reddish color. Minimal head. Taste is also grassy with some notes of lemon. Not bad and quenching. I think I just don’t care for wet hops.

Had this after 2 double ipas so maybe my palate was ruined but it was thin and watery and plain old sucked.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber at home. Kind of mild hoppy aroma, with some pine, fruit, and brown sugar standing out. Bitter, fresh, and focused. Straightforward flavor profile, dripping with fresh hop oils. A decent fresh hop IPA.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft, pours an amber with quickly dissipating head. Hops are pretty earthy to the smell. Taste is fairly bitter and consistent through. Medium bodied. Drinks well alone.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma Is strong hops, grains, light citrus. Very full. Medium brown, a little cloudy with a thick white creamy head. Taste is hops and grains all the way. Bready, thick. Got tedious and a bit sour near the end , but A good beer nonetheless.

A: pours dark copper with a finger of off-white/light tan foam which falls to a sheet of the same over several minutes. Cobweb lace. Excellent clarity.

T: Oily and hoppy. The resin hops are strong on this one. Plenty of english endorsed malt profiling here as well.
M: Medium on heavy for the style with low carb. thick oily finish.
O: Good beer, but not my favorite harvest ale.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours amber/copper in color with medium off white head and great legs. Aromas of toffee, bread, pine, citrus rind, floral notes, petrichor and a bit of spice. Taste is salty caramel, toffee, pine resin, lawnmower trimmings, spice, fresh ground pepper, citrus rind, and more resin. Finish starts sweet and rapidly moves into a lasting bitterness. Juicy mouthful and very refreshing. Very complex earthy but bright beer. Outstanding.
