Fresh bomber from Pipeworks. Thanks to Funky Brewster for all his hard work on this one. Great artwork and I’m rooting for the unicorn. Pours golden amber slightly hazy with thick white head and small lace. Nose is light, fruity with citrus notes and slight peanut shell. Medium bodied with pleasant mild carbonation. Well balanced on the tongue with up front tangy notes moving to a cacophony of hop notes. Bitter almost salty hops move into resinous and slightly citrusy flavors. Terrific beer.

kaserov (801) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 18, 2017
Color amarillo, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa y ligeramente efervescente. Aroma muy lupulado, fruta tropical, cítricos, toques herbales y florales, resina. En boca me resulta algo más aburrida. Naranja, fruta tropical (probablemente mango o fruta de la pasión), base de malta caramelizada mínima, toque herbal y ligeramente medicinal. Amargor final resinoso medio que continúa en postgusto. Bien pero esperaba más, la verdad.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Great orange, tangerine to be more precise, flavour at the start and a lovely finish full of hops. Good aroma and a great appearance and palate as well.

HogTownHarry (7012) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2017
December 4, 2014 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs and mabel - bomber. Hazy gold with a creamy/frothy white head. Simple but appealing aroma - fruity malt, floral bitterness, some alcohol, citrus zest. Taste follows but lacking bitterness and oddly sour - a little out of balance. Airy, average, re-emerging coating bitterness in the linger. Not bad.
