1.55/5 rDev -58%
Bomber into a pint glass. Dark mahogany color looks more like a brown ale than anything else. Not a color I'd associate with anything billed as a "Pale". Hard pour results in a half finger of head which disappears immediately. Smell is almost non existent. Very faint malts, not much else. First sip, wow, bitter, but without any citrus qualities at all. Just plain bitter. No malt balance. Finish is an unpleasant, lingering bitterness. Reminds me of chewing an aspirin tablet. Feel is thin, watery and carbonated. Drinkability? Nope. Maybe this is an old bottle. Won't be revisiting this one. Drainpour.

A - This is watery brown, not the color of a pale ale, I had to give a vigorous poor to illicit any head. Not a good effort.
S - Faint citrus hops. Breadlike malts. And Spices? Weird.
T - Bleh. Nothing much beyond bitter. Back end is some malt, but it is thin.
M - Watery and thin. Bud Light mouth feel.
D - Sure, you could have more, but why would you want to?

A - Pours a dark, ruby amber color with a massive, foamy, and one fingered creamy head.
S - Piney hops and caramel malt, no more, no less. Pretty mundane.
T - Caramel and earthy malts, piney hops, and balanced with a fairly clean finish.
M - Medium light body with a big watery finish.
O - A watered down English style IPA, meh.

Stella Artois chalice
A: Pours a dirty yellowish brown like color. One finger of bright white soapy bubbled head. I really had to pour it aggressively to get that. But there seems to be carbonation, because I am seeing tight tiny bubbles coming up from the bottom. Leaves some lacing sheeting.
S: I was surprised that this had a pretty faint nose for a wet hop ale. Getting some floral notes. Some weak pine hints. Also, bready malts behind it all.
T: On the tip of the tongue, you get a burst of pine bitterness. Weird soapy like flavors. Not getting bright citrus or pine or other fruits that I was expecting. Just really blah IPA flavors, actually like it's been sitting around for a little bit? Homebrew like quality to this one actually.
M: It's a medium bodied IPA. The malts add to that.

thanks to G311 for this urban IPA. poured into my stone snifter, as always.
a - clear yellow-orange with about a finger width head that dissipates quickly, leaving no lacing.
a - strong hops while the head is still around, but as it fades i'm left with wet dog and dirty gym socks. must be the philly hops? as it warms i pick up a lot of pine.
t - i alternate between a really nice IPA bitter sip and just plain bitterness. not a lot of complexity in this one. plenty of pine and a solid hop backbone.
m - medium bodied and some carbonation.
o - the smell is kinda throwing me off on this one. i love the idea of urban gardening and love that they grew the hops all within the city limits. great attempt but slightly off the mark. not bad drinking, glad to have tried it.

3.43/5 rDev -7%
A: Dark coppery in the glass with a frothy 2 finger beige head that was topped off by a soapy bubbly covering. Small speckled lacing remains with a scarce, intermittent effervesce within. Head retention was solid.
S: Aroma strength was light, caramelized grain with fresh pine blended with some licorice. The hoppiness was short lived on the pour and rather light and meh.
T: Boozy upfront, licorice and raisin followed by some dried flowery citrus. Moderate level of bitterness, kept fairly in check but weakened towards the finish. The malt base was quite nice, perhaps more note worthy then the hopping itself of scotchy caramelized grains coming about on the finishing take. The hop preference left much to be desired on the finish, with the malt picking up the slack. Not my ideal crisp pale, a bit darker and heavier malt wise while the bitterness is fresh and wet and rather light in detection.
M: Mouthful was light, oily slick with an exceptionally smooth and silky feel aided by a void of carbonation. Needs some snap. Warming licorice and citrus juice perhaps gives this some redemption after the swallow.
D: Moderate drinkability, definitely not a pale ale session, drinks rather heavy, but good for a bomber. Alcohol feels about in the 6-7% range though not noted on bottle.

Pours a hazy orange-ish to yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, a nice earthy hop presence, yet a touch mellow. In the taste, a very nice earthy dryer hop all the way through. A small dryness and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry, fresh hop in the aftertaste. A nice mellow dryer hop, somewhat mellow and decent across the board.
