This beer confused me. Started out nice, then ended in the drain.
Poured a nice golden/amber, crisp looking beer. Topped with a fluffy white head; chunked a bit then settled to about 1/4 finger.
Smell: Citrus and floral, something I don't get in English bitters. Confused a bit, but smells nice; floral, citrus, some sweet malt.
Taste: Started out great--nice balance between the floral/citrus and malt. Persimmon and orange zest are calmed down by the malt sweetness and earthiness.
Then the taste when very bad. The hops were gone, the malt was not sweet, and the aftertaste was stale and grainy. The 22oz bomber was too much, 12oz would have been fine.

This beer was a transparent amber in color with a short tan head. The smell is hoppy and sweet. It has a really nice aroma. The taste is malty and hoppy at the same time, very nice balance. The hop flavor is slightly bitter and grassy. This is a pretty good beer! This is now my favorite Boulder Beer brew.
