22oz Bomber poured into a Duvel glass
A - This is a gorgeous beer. Ruby-ish Amber body with a nice khaki head. lacing is fantastic. in terms of looks, this is second only to Nugget Nectar in my book.
S - Not much on the nose. Some mild hop bitterness. Having had both their celebration and fall harvest ale, im really disappointed. It doesnt smell overwhelmingly fresh or hoppy. Disappointing and kind of smells like BMC.... Im a little worried.
T - At first, oddly, I get a lot of caramel malt and sweetness, followed by a phenomenal citric quality. grapefruit and some faint pineapple. Typical of the west coast the finish is dry and bitter. Really nice and makes up for the bland nose.
M - Nothing to complain about! cannot taste the modest 6 percent at all and carbonation helps to dry out the finish.
Notes - I didnt enjoy this at first but after having a few sips, im really satisfied. The nose is just alittle disapointng. I wanna smell fresh hops!!

A: a little cloudy dark orange amber with good off white head and ok lacing
S: smells kinda odd to me, kind of a little spicy and piney with some malt at the end
T: taste is what makes this beer, its very well balanced and super easy to drink. Got a nice spicy and hop taste to it with some sweet malt lingering and a great slightly bitter after taste
M: good mouthfeel but i suck at reviewing mouthfeel
O: for taste is probably in my top 10 wish it was easier to find as its a great price and easy to drink
