bomber into a tulip. Really

wondering if I got a bad bottle. It's insanely over carbonated to a point that makes it almost undrinkable. Finding myself burping after every sip. If it weren't for the carbonation, this could be a decently enjoyable beer.

Cloudy amber hue. Strong cardamom aftertaste.

From the ridiculous 22oz format. Poured into straight pint glass. Poured a very cloudy orange-amber color with way over an inch of off-white head that very good retention and pretty good lacing.

The aroma was neutral at first, but after a minute some pine and citrus hops popped up, with just the faintest hint of malt in the background. The taste was a bit more hop forward, I'd say this tastes more like an IPA than a Pale, and had a bit of sweetness that didn't show in the nose.

The body was a bit thinner than I like in the style, but wasn't at all watery. Drinkability was decent, it went down quickly and easily, but not memorably. Overall, a decent enough brew, one that probably would have gotten a bit higher score if it were approached as an IPA. Worth a shot if you see it.

Had at Top Notch in VT. Difficulty with this review is I am in beer heaven so my palate is expecting a lot from this one. Never heard of this beer when I lived in Oregon. Pours a nice light amber color, with a slight head. Has a florally smell, and the taste is pretty much the same. Slightly nutty and grapefruit taste. Mildly hoppy - kind of a poor mans Sierra Nevada. A drinkable beer likely nice on a hot day. May come back again for this

This stood out due to the artwork and the fact that it's a brewery that just got picked up around here.

Pours a nice copper with a thick, frothy head into my glass. Plenty of lacing lines the edges of the glass.

It certainly is dry-hopped and nice balance of pine and citrus in the nose. There's also a hint of tasty malt underneath.

Very bitter upfront with more of that excellent citrus/pine hop balance in the flavor.

Lingering bitterness "scorches" and coats the back of the throat. There's not much else to enjoy except for some butteriness from the malt.

Too strong to be a pale ale. I'm thinking extra pale. Worth a try at least.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #64 (May 2012):

LOOK: Hazed amber, creamy lacing

SMELL: Juicy grapefruit, piney, mint, nutty grain, leafy

TASTE: Big smoothness, medium body, extra juicy, citric bomb, evergreen, vegetal, dry, biscuity, bitter orange peel, pithy

Starts off strong with a huge hoppy nose. It being a Pale Ale and all, we were surprised to see less balance here, as the hop flavor draws too much from the palate. Hop heavy without a massive hop bitterness.

From a bomber. Pours hazy amber with two fingers of cream white head. Good amount of fine lacing. Floral hop aroma with some dark leather scent. Taste is full resinous moderately bitter hops with a plentiful amount of malt support. Mouthfeel is quite full for the style. Carbonation is a bit less than average which makes it quite drinkable. Overall a fine APA and well worth a bomber purchase and contributes to a good cause as well.

22 oz bottle from "Lifesource" Salem. $3.99 Clear light amber colored ale with a nice thick,bubbly off white head. Sweet malty aromas..caramel, some nuttiness. Taste is very well balanced there is caramel mats and grassy hop but they seem totally intertwined..and none dominate until the end when a nice grassy bitterness takes over. Nice enough on the palate..maybe a smidgen too sweet and sticky in the end. An OK beer somewhere between and amber and a APA
