I bought a bottle of Armory XPA in a grocery store. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a shiny deep gold/copper color with a creamy white head. The beer is crystal clear with many bubbles rising in the glass.

Smell is sweet and candy-like, caramel and toffee notes.

The taste is also sweet and sour at the same tome. Caramel and orange juice, but better than it sounds.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp and clean for all the sweetness.

Overall a decent pale ale. In the deschutes family probably better than the Mirror Pond but not as good as the Red Chair.

Bomber poured into a Barrelhouse pint glass

A: Pours a beautiful amber/copper with a nice amount of light pillowy tan head that laces nicely.

S: First thing I notice in the smell is a light malt sweetness followed by floral hops and citrus-y goodness.

T: Citrus and floral backed with just enough malt sweetness. I could swear I'm also getting a little berry in there too. Nice resin and lemon bitterness that hangs around.

M: Very nice mouthfeel, lightly carbonated, a little juicy, a little creamy.

O: Really hits the spot on a warm summer day.
