22 oz. Bomber

Pours a pretty nice clean/clear golden dark orange color, nice carbonation, with a nice quick/fizzy off-white head, which does leave some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with a very nice malt note, citrusy. The taste is very nice hoppy, very nice sweet malt note, with some citrus. Medium body, with a pretty nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very decient Pale Ale, especially for the ABV.

It pours a murky deep golden with two fingers of rocky off white head. Excellent head retention and attractive lacing. The aroma is fantastic. Lots of resinous pine and a hint of spicy cedar. It's simple and straightforward. The taste, well, is a little light in my opinion. Some faint pine and malt flavors are detectable. Then, you are hit with a stiff bitterness in the mid palate and the finish. Surprisingly bitter considering that this beer only boasts 44 IBU's. It is medium/light bodied with vibrant carbonation. It's beautiful to look at, and the aroma is amazing. The taste left me wanting more... Overall though, a very solid pale ale.

Good beer, really solid pale ale with a hint of cedar like advertised. Nothing to write home about though.
