From the bomber into a snifter.

Pours a light amber in color with hues of gold. Head is creamy and marshmallow-like, a couple of fingers thick. Head persists well and leaves a ring of lace around the sides of the glass. 4.25

Smells of floral hops with a slight dank quality, honey and caramel add sweetness. Malty sweetness is abundant. 4

This brew has a delicious sweet oatmeal flavor to it. The malt is a major presence. The hops are equally prominent, giving both floral and citrusy sweetness. The sweetness is honey-like and seems appropriate giving the floral hops and it leads to a finish that reminds me of biting into a ripened orange. 4

Malt-heavy both in taste and feel, this has a burly medium body. The sweetness is enjoyable and balanced by just enough hop bitterness to still keep it on the dessert-like side. 4

I find this beer very enjoyable, but I'm also aware that it's not heavily hop-forward, bitter or anything else some like in their pale ales, even stronger ones.
