3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
1 litre flip top via bonus in a trade with footy! Thanks! Rudy! Pours amber with a large offwhite head and a beautiful aroma of mostly grapefruit, orange, and some caramel. Flavor is orange, caramel, and a little pine. Pretty well balanced or at least as much as it could be... Lots of carbonation in this one but it was pretty tasty overall.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber courtesy Hellbilly. Pours a light copper with a thick off white head. Nice floral hop citrus aroma. Taste is crisp clean malt and nicely balanced hop bitterness. Very easy drinking Pale Ale, very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Impressive but a bit weird. Has a tangy malt (and/or?) hop presence that I havenít really encountered before. But it works. A fine APA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with a white three-fingered head, fades slowly and leaves a good lace. Medium carbonation and body. Orange-amber color, not completely clear. Very citrusy hoppy nose. Starts slightly sweet but hoppy and finishes citrusy with a bite. Surprisingly good flavor after being frozen solid.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(22 oz bottle). Pours almost all head just like the IPA did. Copper color with ridiculous off-white chunky head. Aroma of orange, resin, spruce. Sour is most prominent-almost no hops. WTF? This canít really be the way their Pale Ale tastes. It tates like a belgian sour. Very disappointing. Either this brewery has problems with their bottling (2/2 times Iím pouring out their beers) or they are loose with their beer styles. Either way, Iím not a fan.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a clear dark gold with some floaters and a half finger white head and spotty lacing. Nose is floral hops for the most part. Taste is malt, biscuits and earthy hops with some tart grapefruit in the finish. Lighter mouth feel. Pretty good pale. I liked it better than their IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
330mL bottle. golden, translucent. bread-like frothy white head slowly diminishes leaving a nice lace. citrusy hoppy aroma is phenomenal: sour apples, grapefruit. Flavour is intense, the hops are perfect. This is a fantastic APA that I wish I could get more of.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale orange/yellow color; Head was average with nice lace; Nose was heavy on the citrus- orange, grapefruit and floral. Citrus dominates the flavors. Nice tartness through out the center of the tongue. The spiciness emerges at the 1/2 mark. A highly drinkable beer of a style I donít normally get enamored with.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick, persistent head over light copper. Cascade hops meets electrical fire aroma, but in a kinda good way. Flavor is a well balanced typical APA but has a tingly, almost smoky character to it in the background. Power of suggestion? I dunno.
