Bomber from moms beer run. A smooth caramel malt and light hop pale. Slight herbal hop profile. The malt is the dominant character here. Some toasty grain but a big sticky caramel full body.

pushkinwow (1842) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
Bomber thanks to the Jarretts. Orangy amber with a off white head that disappears fairly quickly. Pleasant light and semi-sweet malt with a floral and light hops presence, orange pulp and a bit musty. Moderate carbonation and mild body, slightly bitter with some orange rind at first, then become drier and more bitter. Decent.

hopscotch (8540) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2013
Bottle... Clear amber pour with a small, fizzy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is moderately malty and a touch rooty - sassafras and ginger. Medium-bodied with average carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced, providing notes of toasted barley and cream soda with a splash of black tea. The spicy hops do a good job of evening things out without stealing the show. Tongue-numbing, minerally finish.

Velkyal (275) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2013
On draft, for Session Beer Day at McGrady’s in Charlottesville. Pours a slightly cloudy dark orange with a thin head that dissipates quickly, leaving little in the way of lacing. The aroma is a soft breadiness and a full on assault of seville orange, slightly earthy and spicy hoppiness. Taste is big juicy sweet maltiness, with touches of fresh bread and a light toffee note mixed with dollops of citric hop bitterness and a long clean, and refreshing, finish. Medium bodied, very well balanced and wonderfully drinkable. More like this please.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 Bottle. Light gold with white head. Nose is grassy hops. Flavor has a tea like quality. Palate is nice and smooth. Well made but a little too mild. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the brewery. Pours a deep gold. Nice slight white head. Fresh, grassy aroma. Taste is very hop forward. Big bitterness. Beautiful crisp finish.

Emeister84 (753) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: APR 21, 2013 Orange, peach, caramel, lemon grass, and floral aromas, with some cocoa notes. Lightly hazy orange with quickly diminishing, off-white head. Some sweetness that shines a little more than do the bitter hops, malty flavors of bread and cocoa. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, and finish is somewhat sweet, fruity, and mildly bitter.

dmac (3754) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle shared here a couple months ago. Poured a muddy honey orange body with a quick fading average sized foamy white head. Aroma was blah, notes of bad orange marmalade, old flowers, and an overly sweet aroma all around. Fizzy carbonation over a medium body with a chalky finish. Luckily the flavor is better then the aroma, notes of seltzer with flower petals, bread crusts and yeast. Blah, this one sucks.
