I had a draft at the Cincinnati Bearcats basketball game. RIvertown has recently signed on as a sponsor. I found it outstanding. It had a dark rich amber color, great smell, solid taste.

Don't call it Hop Bomber unless it's hoppy. This is a below average APA with absolutely nothing to recommend it. Very cloudy. Muddy flavor. Just not very good. Trying to come up with something, anything, positive to say. I guess it's drinkable, if paying a lot of money for a mediocre homebrew is your idea of drinkable. Should be avoided, even in a pinch.
