3.13/5  rDev -17.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep copper color with a thick yellowish white head and a ton of lacing. Smells of cascade hops, some biscuity malts, and a little grapefruit. Tastes of a little citrus, biscuit, and tons of piny hops. Mouthfeel is medium with a thick carbonation. Drinkability is nice.

22 ounce bomber into tulip glass

S - pine, bread, earthy notes

T - sweet caramel malts well balanced and a piney bitter finish with a twist of sour lemon zest.

M - well carbonated with a bit of a linger piney aftertaste

O - this one is excellent. Don't pass it by if it comes your way.

3.56/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Light amber coloring. Substantial frothy head.

S: Very hoppy aroma with a distinct citrus kick to it.

T: Again, very bitter and hoppy but has a bit of a caramel (particularly at the beginning) and biscuity taste to it as well. The tartness really lingers in the aftertaste.

F: Fairly light-bodied with loads of hops and carbonation. Thin but not in a bad way.

Overall: Light and refreshing. A very good pale ale, even if it isn't quite a favorite.

3.93/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear yellowish amber in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some orange highlights. The beer has a finger and a half tall foamy white head that slowly reduces to a medium thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts with slightly stronger smells of citrus/grapefruit pith.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of caramel malts with just a touch of sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit pith hops and just a hint of something herbal. Light amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Very well balanced between the malts and the hops which make this beer extremely easy to drink. This beer would pair with just about any food and I could easily have a couple of these.

3.88/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that gradually died down, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate amounts of caramel malts and citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a really good balance between the malts and the hops. I would have no problem drinking more than one of these in a night.
