22oz. Bomber

On the bottle it sez 4% ABV.

Pours a very nice slightly cloudy golden orange color, nice carbonation, with a nice one-finger creamy off-white head, with some pretty nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is hoppy with a nice malt note, slight pine/citrus notes. The taste is slighlty sweet, hoppy, next little malt note. Medium body, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall a pretty tasty brew, glad to have seen it at Harmon's. Would buy again.

Poured a nice unfiltered amber with a one inch off-white head that dissipated quickly. Scent was of grapefruit and other less definable citrus. The taste was hop forward, with a pale ale level of grapefruit and citrus flavors, a hint of pine and a tiny bit of malt on the finish. Hops dominate the flavor over malt due to the lightness of the beer. The mouthfeel was light, a bit watery and easy to drink. The carbonation was fairly low. Overall a good session beer, quite hop forward for a light beer and with a good deal of pale ale/IPA style flavors to keep the beer from being anything but boring. My new go to session ale.
