Thanks to ffejherb for splitting this with me.

Poured a hazy amber color with 1 finger of white head into a goblet. OK retention, nice lacing. Smells of fruits, honey, toasted grains, and citrus. Tastes of floral hops, toasted grains, honey, and citrus zest with some grassy notes in the finish. Medium body, little carbonation. Somewhat thin and watery with some syrup-likeness as well. Pretty toasty and sweet with very little lasting bitterness. Easy to drink and refreshing, but not bitter enough for me to regularly want to choose when in the mood for an IPA.

a. Pours a cloudy golden orange, which settles into a clear golden color. One finger head which thins to a floating layer covering a good portion of the top of the beer.

s. Honey, wheat - not hoppy

t. Honey present int he front, and a grassy finish (like mower clippings).

m. Easy drinking beer. Mild carbonation.

o. Not sure I would revisit, maybe on a hot day with little other offerings. I have enjoyed other beers from this brewer, but this is not their best offering.

22 oz bomber from Liquors inc. poured into a standard Guinness pint glass. Best by 2/11/14

A - pours golden and clear, with a fluffy one finger head. Moves to a thin lace.

S - pine, bread. Not much else.

T - biscuity malts, very faint hop presence. Mild zest. Zest. Yep. That's the first time using that word on a beer description.

M - decent, medium heft

O - good offering, was expecting more hops, but I enjoyed it.

Bomber > Mason Pint

A - Cloudy amber 2 finger white fluffy head, medium lacing.
S - Off aroma. Burnt toffee, estery dark fruit scents, no real good hop aroma detectable.
T - Very sweet malt, some slight banana and fig, stale bread, a little spice, very soapy aftertaste.
M - Chalky and pasty kind of feel, not inviting.
O - This is just lame, idk if this is a bad batch or what, but I'm shocked at the rating it has. It taste like what I would assume would be dirty dishwater.
