Silent is a appropriate name, the smell is barely audible, taste has is almost Silent. Could be good for a really Hot Dry Texas day, if you like it dry and crisp on the end this one is for you. Silence is Golden to some but for now I will pass on this one.

A: Had this in a bomber I brought back from a trip to Washington. Pours an orangish color with very good sized foamy white head. Good lacing down the glass
S: This was kind of interesting, not sure if it was just me but the smell kind of came and went as I was drinking it. Not too overpowering. Smells of biscut, with citrusy hop scent
T: Malt is overpowered by very bitter hoppiness. Malt kind of comes and goes as well.
M: Slightly dry finish, medium bodied beer
D: Could have a little more maltiness to it, malt is most of the time drounded out by bitter hoppiness.

So the bomber format needs to have great beers in it given price. Silent treatment is a lot of citrus flavor, oranges are very noticed. Poured into an ok poured body/head/lacing and gives off just a lot of citrus flavors and aromas.
This would be a really good beer in a better format but in a bomber sorry PASS.
I can't lie I"m grossly discounting this one for the price and being in the crappy bomber format without being a beer worth that.

A: This poured a cloudy gold with a little white head.
S: It smelled like faint orange hops and bready biscuit malt.
T: It tasted like faint copper and bready biscuit malt, with a little orange and honey. It had a clean, mild bitter aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with moderate carbonation.
D: This was an ok pale ale. The scent and taste and body were all fitting for the style, but really not that great. Easy to drink, but subpar.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a pleasant coppery-gold color with about 1/2 inch of white head that had low retention and good lacing.
The aroma was fairly neutral and balanced at first, but after a moment a nice piney hop scent became apparent. The beer was mostly balanced with a gentle malt base scent. The taste was, for the most part, the same, with the biggest difference being a bit of a citrusy/grapefruit bite at the back of the tongue.
The body was nicely medium, pretty typical for the style, and had a dry finish. Drinkability was good enough, my pint went quickly, and there was just a bit of the grapefruit lingering aftertaste. Overall, a solid, unremarkable example of the style. It might be a everyday fridge brew if it were local to you, but probably not worth a lot of effort to obtain. Worth a shot if you see it though.

Im willing to tag this as an over-hopped beer, but of course, some people like that. In this case the hops are very fresh, very green, and derived from local Cascade and Columbus varieties each of which I think of as the 57 Chevy of hops. If the beer had wheels youd call it a hop rod.
The racy carbonation produces a bright white head and generous lace on a predominantly clear body of burnished copper. The taste is strongly hopped the whole beer is a highly charged hop magnet though the lines are uncluttered and still clean enough to retain drinkability. The aroma however hints at hops momentarily but is otherwise oddly yeasted. 5.0% ABV.

I picked up a bomber of Northern Lights Pale Ale at a grocery store to taste, review and enjoy. I poured this beer in to a pint tumbler.
Pours a rich gold color and is slightly hazy. A rich foamy white head forms, and is extremely resilient.
The smell is fairly weak but it has a hop aroma, and a bit of a fruity smell.
The taste is well balance between hops and malt, with a little citrus (grapefruit) flavor on the side.
The mouth feel is clean crisp and refreshing.
This is a very drinkable beer. Its light and refreshing with a nice flavor. I would definitely have Northern Lights Pale Ale again. Ill probably visit the brew pub soon as well.

A: Pours a clear burnished copper with two fingers of white head that fades into a thin layer with little lacing.
S: Grapefruit notes along with dry pine aromas dominate with some underlying notes of sweeter citrus and caramel malts.
T: Grapefruit, citrus rind, and dry pine flavors dominate here in an earthy, dry, and only lightly bitter flavor.
M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer is pretty light and drinkable for something that is fairly hoppy.
O: A solid pale ale overall that is easy to drink and enjoy, though it lacks some of the hop pungency that I like in my hoppy beers.

The beer was served in a standard pint glass. It was clear copper with an off-white head.
The nose was fresh and was bursting with cascade hops and a nice biscuit smell.
The taste was not quite as good as the smell. It was pleasantly bitter with slight piney taste. It may be a smidgen out of balance, as the malts seemed to go MIA at times.
Nice low levels of carbonation, but the mouth could be a bit creamier. Still a mildly sessionable ale.

Rich and warm toned hoppy beer. Appealing classic amber color in the snifter. Plenty of suds and lacing.
The fruity flavors are quite pleasant. Some kind of mix of hops and malt, and well balanced. A hint of orange peel, but not the highly bitter notes. Slightly tart with hints of caramel. Grainy flavors. Quite nicely hopped without the overdose. Modestly bitter aftertaste.
Thoroughly drinkable. It's hard to call this anything special, but it does a good job of providing a rich, hoppy mouthful. From the 12 oz bottle bought at Mayfair Liquors in Denver.
