Pours a golden color with a medium sized head. Head is off white. Wasn’t sure what type of beer this was when I purchased it! Found out it is an IPA. Tasty. Nice slight hop with a balanced finish. Decent drink.

Bomber. It’s hard for me to go huge on aroma (its pleasant, but it doesn’t blow you away), appearance (nice soft golden orange pour, small white head), palate (moderate density, light carbonation), and taste (easy drinking, and the tea elements stand out), but I need to give this props via the overall score category because this just rocks. Flavorful, interesting, light and easy drinking - this would be stellar on a hot summer day, with food, sharing at a tasting, whatever. Terrapin captured excellence without excess here. I’m very impressed with this beer.

Bomber from ABC in Spring Hill. Pours a hazy yellow with green highlights and a white head. Nose is light wheat bread, green tea, jasmine, and some light grapefruit. Flavor is similar with rice, light wheat, green tea, and mild jasmine. Medium in body with lingering grapefruit rind and green tea.

Asian in the front, light IPA in the back... Sniff it hard and you get the Asian flair from the tea, ginger helps balance but I don’t pick any up on the flavor because of the fresh hop flavor. Body is light, from the rice? I would say take this and use this for exactly what it is, a nice summer brew with an Asian mindset... Great with Pad Thai?

Light brown color, aroma is light and earthy. Taste is very neutral. Hits with hops, light on the palate. Lots of flavors: green tea, citrus, and floral notes but for the most part they equal each other out.

Pint pour if deep gold with full white fluffed head. Nose is somewhat sweet, light hop, citrus. Flavor is light hop, tropical fruit of light pineapple and coconut? Ginger and jasmine are somewhat present with green tea notes. Not great. Nice body with light lacing.

I enjoyed this more than I expected to, to be honest. The green tea and ginger really stand out in both the aroma and taste, and it really balances out the hop bitterness. Pretty refreshing, actually.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours almost clear dark god with a white head. Pine aroma. Notes of vick’s vaporub and spruce. Initial bitter finish jousting with a sweetish floral hop flavor.

Pours thick, hazy orange amber with a white, small bubbly head. The aroma is pleasant, sweet green tea notes almost like honey. The flavor is bring unique flavors of the rice, and then sweet and lightly bittered hops come in as well on a somewhat crisp body. The ending is dry.

Bottle. Hazy orange yellow color, medium white head that settles quickly. Aroma of fresh orange blossoms. Taste is bitter, fruity, licorice candy, scallions. Very nice.
