Cloudy orange pour with a single finger head. Smells sweet with citrus and decaying fruit. Full mouth. Bitter taste with a long candy like finish. Some slight funk. Dry and just a little too bitter. Some sweetness would benefit this a bit. Big time lace.

Glass on tap at the brewery. Cloudy pour with ample head. Sweet aroma with some citrus notes. First thing I noticed about the taste was how much it reminded me of pineapple. tasted almost like those canned ringed pineapples you can buy in the store. After getting used to this flavor, I was able to taste some bitterness and malt character. Interesting drink.

Bomber- I wish I had 3 liters. Pours a dark copper color with a large off-white head. A dank resious aroma, citrus. A lovely flavor: tea, oranges, fresh lemons, huge resin, orange peel, light banana esters. Man, this is amazing. Super drinkable and so damn flavorful. Bursting with hops, but balanced in many ways. Lovely, tea-like, and I love a cuppa. So damn mellow, mild bitterness in the tail.
