3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taste is thick pine, licorice, citrus peel. Too much caramel malt for me to absolutely love. I miss the floral hops I enjoy in ST beers.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle@home, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Medium/strong, sweet, barely artificial aroma of mango. Copper color with small natural white head and semi hazy liquid. Strong, balanced taste with sweet, over aged, slightly organic, fruits, mainly mango and malts. Medium taste spectrum and long, malty, bit hoppy aftertaste. Medium/strong body body with medium carbonation. Overall, high quality, bit simple, while combining good qualities of American (sweet) and English (sour/bitter) traditions.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orange amber with a thin white head. no lacing. Aroma of orange and mango with a big aroma of caramel malt. Flavor is very sweet up front with the resinous hops hitting you towards the end. Medium body. Sticky texture. Low carbonation. Alcohol present but not aggressive. lasting bitter finish. Not bad but not worth the $16 I paid for the four pack.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is malt and bread, some tropical fruit and pine but too much malt. Appearance is almost dark orange, hazy, off white head, all wrong. Taste is malt bomb, bitterness from that, pine finish, some tropical fruit but way off. Mouthfeel is medium body and light carbonation, malt and bread in the aftertaste. Overall, this is not worth the price.

Poured into a snifter.
3.0 A: Clear medium orange color. One finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is a touch below average and not much lacing is left.
3.5 S: Piney and citrusy hops. Lots of orange with some lime underneath. Clover honey, caramel, earth, and biscuit malts.
4.0 T: The taste is grander than the nose. Sugary with candied oranges, potent lime, and some lemon too. Caramel, honey, moderate bitterness. Again biscuit malts.
3.75 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Nice creaminess to it. Potent bitter aftertaste.
3.75 D: Southern Tier has an awesome big beer lineup and this fits in well. Solid all around.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sweet malt hoppyness that tingles your whole mouth and keeps building to a plateau that fades to hops and a malty caramel sweetness that lingers just right. This is really good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells of sweet malts followed by slight hop scent. Nice medium gold color. Taste is very malty followed by a slight hint of hops at the very very end. Very unbalanced beer. Slight booze flavor coming through through out the Flavor skeem but slightly boosey. Love your beer this one just a bit strong.

Bomber pour at home, with no date on the bottle.
Pours a nice clear orangish color
A bit malt forward for me, but it may be due to an older bottle - but I don’t know since I don’t have a date.
Nice lingering bittering taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is a complex mix of pine, fruit, caramel/mild sweetness and hop resin. The flavor is grapefruit, caramel malts, hop resin, mild sweetness and a mix of spicy, bitter and slight alcohol finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet and piney aroma with strong bits of malt. Ok amber color with some chunks floating around. Nice immediate hop flavor, but quickly fades away to strong malt through the after taste.
