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.

Aroma is yeast malt, hop and a little spice. Appearance has a small but long-lasting off-white head, some lacing and a slightly hazy orange amber color. Flavor is like aroma plus has some malt and fruit sweetness with plenty of hop bitterness but there are some medicinal qualities to the aftertaste. Body is good with just a touch softness. Overall it's pretty good beer except for that medicinal thing
