Pours a cloudy golden blonde with a generous head. Malt, caramel, and grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet, with bread, caramel, and dark fruit, then finishes with some grassy hop bitterness. Carbonation gives this a creamy mouthfeel. Another great beer from a great brewery. high_on_hops (809) - Burlingame, California, USA - APR 11, 2012
Pours a clear medium-gold with a white head and lacing. The aroma is mainly malty, with some hops and yeast too. The flavor is a balance of hops and malt, with a bit of wheat and a sweet, almost honey, aftertaste.

Pours hazy orange with a 1 finger, soapy white head that has good retention and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is caramel, biscuit, syrupy sweet malt, booze and citrus. Flavor is toast, bisguit, light nuttiness, syrupy sweetness, lots of alcohol, spicy and citrus hops. Palate is creamy and slightly syrupy on entry, has a light, but sharp carbonation and slick, but syrupy finish. The hop profile is pretty decent on this one, but it is far to sweet and syrupy and the booziness is way out of balance with the rest of the beer, it drinks more like 11-12% than 8%abv. cubs (10636) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle @ home, courtesy of Jetson! Thanks bro! Fairly hazy, golden orange appearance with a small, cream colored head. Tangy, orange citrusy, very rich malty albeit a bit boozy aroma. Very rich, sweet, somewhat toasty malty, somewhat bitter, tangy flavor. This one may have some age on it- who knows. UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - FEB 29, 2012

Bottle at Håndverkerstuene in Oslo, Norway. Lovely hazy yellow colour with a white head. Alcohol are very rich, disturbing and unpleasant in both aroma and flavour. TheGB (578) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Pours a light amber with a thin 1/4" head. Light aroma of floral hops. Medium bodied, with a smooth palate of hops, lychee fruit and some citrus. Well balance, but not all that interesting. OmegaX (1374) - Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Bottle into snifter. Pour is golden orange with a fluffy white head. Nose is like orange cream soda and a sweet vanilla and caramel. Very floral and aromatic citrus hops. Nice. Taste is similar with a nice bitter finish. Very smooth vanilla undertones bring out and accent the citrusy hops. Good stuff yet again from Southern Tier.

Nice golden color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of floral/fruit hops, citrus, & spice. Flavor of slight sweet malt, spicy hops, citrus, and some caramel; Finish is slightly bitter; Nicely balanced; Overall, more of a strong pale ale - but very enjoyable.

Bomber. Pours a hazy orange with yellowish hues. Frothy off white head. Aroma is sweet citrus, caramel? with some hop bitterness for good measure. Taste is sweet, bready, slight vanilla and citrus notes. Mouthy on the tongue. Good extra IPA!!!
