Bottle purchased in a Central NY bottle shop. Poured into a large stemmed wine glass.

A: Pours a light golden hue with a massive fluffy white head that laces the glass beautifully.

S: Light citrus, peach and fresh cut grass.

T: Citrus juice and grassy hops. Slight cracker biscuit. Great balance of hops and malt.

M: Light, crisp, effervescent, and bone dry. Very easy to drink.

O: Awesome stuff. Very hoppy APA, but superbly crafted. Thank goodness for American breweries not caring much for categories.

16.9oz bottle poured into a pair of shaker pints. Bottled On date (according to my wife) is 2014-09-09, so maybe a bit past its prime. But, since it's not distributed here and it traveled here in my father in law's suitcase, I'm not going to question it.

Pours slightly cloudy (vigorous pour) with a good sized white head that condenses more than fades. Turns into a creamy, lumpy layer more than anything else. Smell is moderate. Something slightly minty about it...not sure. Citrusy, but mild. A little hay or straw.

Taste is straw. MO is better (or fresher). Drinkable, tasty, but not very special.

Mouthfeel is light and good. Overall...drinkable, tasty, but not very special.

Bomber from Wegmans Dewitt NY for $7

Appearance - Gold colour with a large size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Hops, breads/grains, lemon-grapefruit

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste grapefruit and some woody/leafy hops. There is also some light malt.

Overall - A nice light APA that taste a little less fruit than I was expecting. More of a dry earthy woody hop bite than a the fruity juicy one I get with their other hoppy brews.
