10/15/10. Bomber. Amber/red pour with a nice off-white head that lasts as a ring but doesn’t lace much. Deep sweet citrusy fruit aroma with definite orange and grapefruit combined with some earthy hoppiness and definite toffee/caramel. Rich malty caramel and toffee background that lingers with orange and grapefruit and a hint of cream. Actually quite nice.

Light citrusy nose, a touch eathy and leafy, a little iced tea. Pours golden amber with a creamy lasting head and nice thick sheets of lace. The flavor has notes of caramel, iced tea, light floral hops, a little citrus here and there. Light fresh resiny leafiness lingers in the finish. Easy to drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours a golden body with a white head. Very hoppy with citrus and grapefruit and almost tropical like punch notes aromatically. Fresh hop tones that die out a bit in terms of taste, the punch tones dissipate and the flavor is more grassy, hints of bread, and honey tones. A bit prickly in terms of bitterness and carbonation. Still very good overall.

Bottle thanks to my Secret Santa! Poured a clear gold with an amber hue and a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was quite hoppy with a pine note but also had a strong sweet grain backing. Flavor started with pine but was joined by a relatively strong sweet grains backing.

On tap at Galaxy Hut.
Pours an amber copper with a bit of a white head and some rig lacing. Nose is really sling hops and a good dose of Harpoon yeast. Side note: I need to find out what that is. Taste has slight hops with some pale malts. Light body with low carbonation. Drinks well but is not as advertised.

DeLand, Fl - Abbey, on tap. Pours a deep dark copper, sticky khaki colored head that leaves nice, thick lacing. Strong, fresh sprucy aroma with some fresh floral notes. The flavor has a nice bitter edge to it with requisite grapefruit bitterness and some nuttiness thrown in for good measure and just a hint of minty goodness. Very fresh. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. Another solid entry from Terrapin.
