Golden pour with nice sized white head. Grassy hop nose with some citrus. Flavor is much the same with a bitter dry finish. ajnepple (7063) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2017
On tap at First Draft Taproom & Kitchen. Clear, deep golden appearance with a white head. Mild aroma of bread, toasted grain, pine and resinous hops. Similar flavor, adding moderate hop bitterness and a mild malt sweetness. Medium body. A little bit boring overall. coachd (932) - Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Odd aroma. Fishy, almost like salmon skin. Looks good, tastes very smooth with a hint of hops. Extremely drinkable, but I want more hops.

Pours a clear, deep golden with an off white ring. Grapefruit and Gewürztraminer on the nose. Healthy mouthfeel. Tastes precisely the way it smells. Sledutah (7838) - Utah, USA - OCT 6, 2014

December 18th, 2012 - I love the idea of beer named after a noble carriage of the Federation Fleet, but alas, if there was a label to go with the name’s wit, it didn’t show up in the picture I took of this brew. All I have is about a centimeter or so of lonely beer in a tall glass, a moderate gold, and no head, likely due to overexposure to the air, elements and over consumed. That is to say, I drank first, and asked questions (and took notes) later. The aroma has a distinct smell that makes me suspect this is closer to a double IPA than the single variety in lineage, stuffed with cotton candy, sugar coated almonds, booze, honey and pine, and the lot of it deep and intense. The flavor dials down the sweets that the aroma obsesses over, adding more noble hops, and graham cracker. Marshmallow puffs up in the aftertaste, too. It’s sweet, true, but not too sweet, and neither is it too piney, and wedged in there is a pronounced hops profile that tastes very American (though which breeds and cones I cannot say). The aftertaste loves to linger on the tongue as the alcohol slowly simmers on the taste buds. This is a wonderful beer, and on my calloused tongue it reminds me of Pliny (though unfairly, without all the hype and desperate, groping hands) which puts this beer high up on my IPA list. conshawnery (1) - Pueblo, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2014 does not count
This beer is nice and floral, with an assertive bitterness. One of the best ipa’s I have had in Colorado. Has a nice aroma that reminds me of fresh cut grass, and a wonderful creaminess. I would highly recommend this beer. UncleKorm (1337) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2014
Bomber bottle poured a murky orange hue w/ large creamy white head and excellent lacing. Bold malty hay aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are bold hay, malt, pine, orange citrus, cereal, and grass. Full bodied, soft carbonation, and creamy mouthfeel. Steve_0 (3818) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear orange with a big frothy tan head and great lacing. Huge ganja, garlic, onions, bready, light fruity, and caramelly aroma. Taste is huge garlicy and onion hops - light grapefruit, dank, weed, and bread with a medium bitter finish. Light body with medium carbobation. Not the best choice of hops.

At Dry Dock with Stephen. Pours bronze cloudy light head. Aroma is earthy spicy hops, raw malt, light leather notes. Taste is not very good, dirt, old hay, raw old rye, earth bitterness.
