Random find in Geneva, OH during a camping stop on the way from MA to Chicago. Reviewed from notes at the campsite.

A- Bomber poured to two goblet glasses with a clear golden-apricot body. White head up to two fingers with a thick creamy texture and good retention. The frothy thick ring deposits plenty of lace sheets.

S- Citrus hops off the top with notes of orange, lemon and grapefruit zests. Pine and floral hops behind that with a light caramel, biscuit and bread base.

T- Again, citrus hops take precedence on the taste buds with grapefruit, orange, tangerine and zestiness making way for some pine and floral hints. Cereal, biscuit and cracked light grains as well as a yeast bread and fruit esters.

MF- Light to moderately thick bodied with a frothy, foamy texture. Carbonation is on the high side but fairly smooth. Clean, bitter finish.

Mostly citrus hops with some pine and floral backing it and enough malts to make a difference. Solid IPA after a long day of driving.
