Clear amber pour with a big white head. Aroma of toffee, carmel and hay. Bittersweet flavor with caramel, toffee, grassy hop bitters. More sweet and roasty malt flavored than most pales. Still very well balanced and plenty of hop flavor to go around here. Styles (2016) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Courtesy of footbalm. Darker golden, huge rocky head, nice lacing. Aroma has nice balance, decent hop character, dry biscuity malt background. Flavor on par, bigger citrus character throughout, malt not as prevelant. Finishes really dry. Nice session. hman43 (1955) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2013
The aroma pleasantly strong with a sweet smell like citrus with a blend of other bread aromas. It has a deep golden, hazy color with a off white fluffy head that has medium body to it. It has a pleasant taste of malt that is reminiscent of bread and cereal. It is creamy and lively with a slightly bitter aftertaste. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Poured into a pint glass.
3.5 A: Moderately hazed medium orange color. Three fingers of beige frothy head. Retention is good and moderate amounts of lacing are left.
3.0 S: Bready malts. Earthy and herbal hops with notes of cat piss.
2.0 T: Lots of yeasty breadiness. Not a lot of other flavor aside from a light neutral maltiness. Herbal hoppiness. Light bitterness. Nothing can get through the yeastiness and thus this needs to be cleaner. As it is, it sucks.
3.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy, but also too chewy.
2.0 D: Not a fan of this. I’m finding out that pale ales need to be filtered for me to enjoy them.
Serving type: bottle

A good copper pour and a lasting creamy head. Smells all nice and hopped up. Full nectar with creamy residual effers. A foundation of malty blubber is encroached upon by cutters from the hoppy kind. Eventually a balance is met and there is happiness in the hive. Good stuff.

Bomber. Hazy golden orange with a medium off white head. Grainy and pit fruit aromas. Tastes a bit like overripe and/or canned peaches and pineapple juice with some bready notes. A bit sticky. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Quite enjoyable and flavorful. Two demerits. First, Way too high ABV for this style. Second, I seem to be detecting a slight alcohol burn. Onslow (1552) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Pour from a 22 oz bottle. Amber brew with off white head. HOppy aroma - herbal, a little citrus, a little earth. THere is a little cheesy sour in the aroma that maybe suggests my sample has turned a bit. Taste is very hops forward - a little sweet malt at the very start of the swallow but quickly over shadowed by bitter hops. Herbal hops and earthiness, long dry bitter finish - definately as hopped up as many IPA’s. But a bit coarse and unpleasant in the process.

Draft sample at the brewery. Gold/light copper pour. Sweet, grassy aroma. Taste is bitter up front. Hints of pine and tropical fruits. Nice slight roast malt balance. UncleKorm (1337) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2013
