4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma of this brew is to die for due to the strong scent of diacetyl and resin and floral hops, and the color is the clearest amber with a large white head. The taste is a very balanced mixture of a touch of sourness, a mild bitterness, and a slight sweetness. The palate could not improve at all and fuses a medium body, average carbonation, slick texture, and a slightly bitter finish in such a way that it only accentuates the flavor.

Shared a 22oz bottle with friends and co-workers. This one poured a hazy orange color with a medium-sized white head. Aroma was plenty of hops, lots of German hop notes - cereal characters on the nose that remind me a bit more of a pilsner than an IPA. Flavor had notes of sweet citrus, nice grain balance in here. Alcohol is pretty well masked for tettering at 9 and a half. Pretty darn good, I liked it.

Bomber from Belmont Station. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A sweet fruity hop nose with some honey. Big flavor of German hops, and it noticeably so with deep sweet lemon and honey, very grainy. Frischen Aromen. Ich konnte viel trinken. Vielleicht werde ich. Auf jeden Fall ist es gut. A big fluffy palate. Superbly drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Decent head. Light golden. Balanced. Earthy hops, some pine, biscuity malt, slightly creamy. Fairly long earthy bitterness on the finish. Pretty good for what it is...

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Bright, golden pour. Bit of a fizzle, not much. Very nice viscous mouthfeel. Drinks like the better American IPAs I’ve ever had, but without any over the top, acidic hoppiness. Instead, this is an exceptionally well balanced, malty beer with some evident pilsner-like characteristics, yet some resiny burn of a big IPA. I love the finesse. (#5209, 8/24/2013)

Bright 24 karat pour with a massive ivory crown that left excessive lacing inside the glass. Evergreen, lemongrass, and leafy crisp hops along with grapefruit pith and bitter orange peel. Honey, caramel, and candied citrus in the backbone. The German profile is definitely unique and distinguishable. Quite different than west-coast varieties but a nice change of pace. Solid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: Clean, clear golden orange body, clarity off the charts. Foamy white head gone in seconds to a collar. Aroma very grassy and fruity like Fruity Pebbles. Tastes like Fruity Pebbles, too, with heavier hops. Hop oil, lupulin strike with zesty fruity and citrus collage. Mildly bitter, more towards the back end. Oily and a little sticky, heavy carbonation. Interesting but quite tasty.
