Orange/amber colored pour with a white head. Strong floral and orange hop aroma, some peach sweetness, a bit of bread, and perhaps some grass. Very light pine to the aroma, too. There’s a mild sweetness of bread to the flavor. Plenty of pine and citrus bitterness, nice floral notes, lots of grass, and a dry finish. Good grapefruit and orange peel notes.

Bomber shared by Forgetfu (thanks Bill!) poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, grapefruit, earthiness, light orange and light grassiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, grapefruit, orange zest, light earthiness and light grassiness with a crisp dry lingering bitter grapefruit finish. cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle @ Ratman’s. Pours a clear dark orange appearance with an off white head. Über spicy, garlic, onion, hoppy, herbal hoppy aroma. A bit chewy, cracker, grapefruity, spicy flavor. Fun stuff. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2013
651mL thanks to dfroms. Pours a brilliantly clear orange. Larger off-white head. Very thick lacing. Nose at first is all Lipton iced lemon tea, sweet tea, opening up to white grape juice, something like red apple, something like custard. Taste is spicy, some melons, chalk, full bitterness, fresh cantaloupe. Palate is juicy, not too dense, no astringency. Good. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 15, 2013
I once saw Ween play at the Fillmore; it was awesome. On tap. Clear bright orange with a fluffy white head. Nice strong grassy and citrus aroma and taste with some light resiny notes and a grassy finish. Not bad.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2013 Good pale ale love San Francisco and this brewery. Pours a clear dark orange appearance with an off white head. herbal hoppy aroma. jazz88 (2699) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle. A deep rich golden orange color with a nice foamy white head. I was impressed with the hop flavor and feel of this on the palate. It’s hard to believe this is only a 5% abv beer. For what this beer is (style and objectives), this is excellent. Zymurgeist2 (2363) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Massive citrus aroma!! Tons of grapefruit and passion fruit! Explodes like Jimi Hendrix blasting open a set. Deep gold with fluffy white head. As clear as Tracy Chapman belting out a ballad. Flavor of overwhelming grapefruit and candi-like sweetness. Hop flavor lasts longer than the Tom Petty 7-day residence at The Fillmore in ’99. Bitterness is nicely restrained. Would welcome an encore performance with this beer! craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle thanks to Dan. Spicy and very tea-like on the nose, with grassy bitterness and hints of melon and grapefruit showing through a bit more in the flavor. Dry, herbal and floral, with secondary fruit aspects. Crisp and clean. Very nice. Prufrockstar (2259) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Bomber, received as a gift from a bottle shop (whose name I don’t recall and can’t find on the google) I was taken to by a friend in Petaluma. Clear gold amber pour, ample white head, no lacing. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine, caramel, and flowers. Taste big on grapefruit. Clean, crisp, refreshing. Assertive bitter bite. Medium body, moderate carbonation. A nice, unexpected treat!
