Bomber. Pours a cloudy amber with medium frothy off white head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is a bready malt yeast and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt and light bitter hop with honey. Easy to drink with light bitter finish, a good American pale ale from Clown Shoes argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 27, 2012

Bottle from total Wine in Tampa. Good amount of head. Smooth mouthfeel, bottled August 2012,
but a little skunky. Likely why there were so many bottles of this and their IPA around the USA. DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2012

22oz bomber pours slightly murky amber with a semi loose tan head of foam. A pale ale? Hmm. The aroma offers up malts, biscuit malts, a dap of nuttiness and I swear I’m getting a Brett like aroma off in the background. Maybe it is just a sharp tart lime like quality. The taste is similar where there’s malts and biscuit malts and a malt like nuttiness riding over the top of tart grapefruit and tart lime like notes. Very interesting beer where in the finish the tart and bitter lime to grapefruit notes keep this from getting too malty into the finish. Interesting odd beer that doesn’t hit a home run but doesn’t strike out either, maybe a sneaky full swing infield single.

Conyers, Ga. - Sigman Bottle Shop - 22 oz bomber. Hazy dark orange pour, slight snow white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma is perfume-like and sweet with some candy fruit essence to it. Flavor is similar in nature withe some artificial candy-like fruitiness, a hint of molasses, some cotton candy. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Not quite cloying, but would gave been happy with only 12 oz of this, PhillyCraft (8193) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Draft at Barcade, pours hazy copper with light to medium head, not much lacing. Notes are pale malt, belgian yeast, grapes, saison shampoo, and hops. Drinkable but lacked citrus and sessionable qualities for most pale ales.
