22oz bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a frothy off white head. Nose was full of citrus hops and tropical fruits, rye malt seems to push its way through mid palate, damn tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich aroma is yeasty and woody with a subtle rye overtone. It pours a clear amber with a fairly thick and persistent white head; lacing is minimal. Flavor is yeasty, malty and rye-ish, a little woody but pleasantly so. Texture is not at all smooth - quite fizzy and rough, very pleasant, leaving behind a nice if not strong tingle.

Bottle. Poured a mostly clear golden copper with a nice white head. Nose is mix of citrus hops, rye, spiced notes, and sweet malt. Taste is very similar with a good bit of spiced rye and some sweet malt, citrus hops are less forward than in the aroma. Some grassy noes as well. Body is medium and well caronbated. Overall, a decent ale.

[October 13, 2010]
Bomber from Green’s. This is a cloudy orange with a fizzy white head. Ah,
that delightful grapefruity hop smell is evident as soon as I pop the
cap. Rye is also very apparent without any really noticable additional sweet malts.
The flavor is wonderfully balanced. The more of this I taste the more
I enjoy it. Everything is harmonious. Hops are prominent and refreshing
while the rye is spot on for a dryish, bready balance. Sweetwater
excels in the hoppy ways of American tradition and this is no exception.

Strange mix in this beer between the rye and the hops. It pours into a bubbly haze. The beer has a crisp and fizzy mouthfeel. I always like the rye flavor, which in this is case s mixed with a lemon-bread flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 from greens. Mostly grassy but kind of orange aroma. Flavor is grassy up front and then it fades into a bitterness that i’m not a big fan of. Has a bit to do with the rye and then the finishing hops combining into something that reminds me a little too much of chewing grass or pine cones. Everything up until this point in the drink though is pretty good and bordering on one of sweetwater’s better offerings to date. Just that damn finish then screws it all up.

1 pt 6 oz bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy golden color with a small white head. It has a wonderful citrus hop aroma along with a rye aroma. This is a excellent beer. It tastes of lemon and grapefruit up front followed by a hop bitterness and rye taste. The body is a bit thin.It’s very refreshing. I would buy this one again.
