22oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium yellow with a light reddish hue and a small (1 finger or less) white frothy head that was mostly lasting, eventually receding down to a thin film and possessed some good spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a grain malt, floral hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange).
The taste was lightly malty and bitter sweet with a hint of caramel from the onset, progressing with a mild citrus sweetness and a bitter hop finish. The flavor lasted an average duration with a fruity hoppy taste settling in on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body, watery and a tad dry in texture with a lively carbonation.
Overall a very good Pale Ale, which possessed a decent hoppiness that was set off slightly by a mild citrus sweetness...

Bomber to snifter (shared by me with the group; thanks burg326). Good; a cloudy orange with AMPLE off-white head. Smells lightly hoppy with some malt notes. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a solid mouthfeel. Decent beer. cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Draft @ CBBC. Pours golden with a creamy white head. Nose is of citric, lime hops and some toasted malts. Slightly drying, toasted malts medium-to-low bitterness, round mouthfeel. A bit of lemon fruitiness in the flavor as well. Drinkable slightly off-the-wall APA. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2010
Cloudy dark orange color bit the brewer said it is usually clear and a bit lighter. Aroma is light, caramel malt and light hops. Flavor is smooth sweet and hop balanced, crisp finish. BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2010
On tap at CBBC, pours cloudy amber. Unexpected, but very nice bitterness that pushes through a solid malt base for a pale. Medium bodied with medium bitterness, on top of a light carbonation with a nice finish with a touch of bitterness to wrap it up. Overall another good drinkable beer for the Florida heat.

22 oz bottle. Foggy orange with a puffy white head. Nose is orange juice, lemon tea and dough. Medium light with moderate carb. Taste is citrus peel and pith. Nicely balanced, easy drinking. Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Fresh bomber. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden amber color with a thick, fluffy head of eggshell to beige foam. Dense, solid walls of lacing coat the glass almost entirely. The nose is very bready, showing a clean, lightly toasted, dry cereal grain base that is balanced with a light dusting of grasses and mild citrus. Flavors largely follow suit, again coming across as balanced and mostly dry. Lightly peppery, grassy green notes cut through the dry, wheaty cereal and toasted white bread elements. Hints of pithy citrus lend further drying, bittering character. The body is moderate in both stature and carbonation, drinking easy because the heft seems more from well-attenuated and unfiltered grain malt than from laboring residual sugars. Good brew. Nothing fancy, just solid and balanced. Boring perhaps, but free of any off-putting qualities. tgncc (3129) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Via trade with Dchmela, a bonus extra local beer! The aroma is citrus, bread, caramel. The appearance is translucent amber, white head. The flavor is citrus, vegetable, caramel, metal. The finish is resin and metal. Medium in body. Not bad, not great. juiceisloose (1473) - Windermere, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Fairly fresh bomber. This pours a slightly hazy, dark golden amber color and topped by a thick head of off white foam that slowly recedes and coats the glass with lacing nicely. The aroma is based mostly in toasted, dry cereal grains and bready malts with hints of citrus and a touch of clean, grassy hops. The flavor follows suit and come across mostly dry and well balanced. The dry toasted cereal and bread malts form the base while some lightly peppery, grassy hops add some bitterness for balance. Hint of citrus fruit come through and add a touch of sweetness while lending to the bitterness from the hops. Medium bodied and easy drinking with moderate carbonation and just really well balanced. This is a nice pale ale that is pretty straight forward, but balanced and enjoyable either way. PorterPounder (7889) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Orlando, Fl - Whole Foods - 22 oz bomber. Pours a murky dark orange with a nice sticky white head that leaves a nice coat of lacing and sticks around a while. Aroma has a slight spruce bent to it - but otherwise is pretty neutral. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some light citrus notes, a bit of spiciness. Smooth drinking and a good companion to pizza. Mouthfeel is nice and crisp.
