Bottled. An amber beer with a lazing thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with a lovely hoppy and grassy notes which also includes notes of grapefruit. The flavor is sweet malty eith notes of grapefruit and grass, leading to a dry and very bitter end. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of Kramer 17801. Clear, pale amber golden with a nice, off-white head. Fresh aroma of citrus and pine. Quite full-bodied with sweetish malt which is completely overpowered by the piney aroma hops also leaving a solid bitterness. 290407 fiulijn (20492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2011
Hazy amber color; medium sized head, compact. The aroma is still very nice, fruity; then comes a strong, mellow aroma of brewing cereals; unexpected, but pleasant. Good body strength, caramel flavor, lightly soapy; strong bitterness, still some hop resins, but no fruits. Strong and long final. Solid brew.bhensonb (15190) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Unfortunately, another bottle that I maybe spoiled, keeping it too long (since Oct ’09 till July ’10), waiting to share it...
Bomber from Half Time. Pours hazy light amber with a decent creamy near-white head. Aroma is very perfumy to my snoz. Med body. Damn but it is floral. With of course a decent mildly roasted caramel backbone. But it is incredibly floral. So it’s not exactly bitter, and that caramel sweet is detectable, but it’s certainly hopped all to heck. It’s suggestive of a rose petal, but that’s probably not what the floral is. There’s a lot going on in this, and I think it gets a little citric/resin as my tastebuds and nose get used to the floral. Amazing. I think I’ve never had anything so floral at the start. Ratman197 (14826) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2011

Lightly hazed golden ale with a thin white head. very sweet malt caramel aroma, light and restrained, a bit buttery. In mouth, rich pinhous hops come out well, with smokey malts, like a fine scotch, long in mouth, warming, and smooth. Rich bodied.

(Bottle) Pours a cloudy burnt orange body with an average beige head. Aroma of pine, citrus, toasted malt, toffee, and butterscotch. Flavor of piney hops and caramel malt with a dry, bitter finish; good balance. hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2005
22oz bottle shared courtesy of weeare138 (thanks!). Poured a medium amber color with an averaged sized lightly off white head. Aromas of oranges, citrus, light pine and some caramel. Tastes pretty much the same as the aroma with somewhat of a buttery quality to it. I found the aromas and tastes to be a little on tame side for the way I like my Double IPAs. Alcohol content hidden (I didn’t detect any at all). jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2007
