bomber bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass

Pours very clear. A dark butterscotch color with very little bright white head, and very few bubbles rising. Decent lace.

I get a little bit of a burnt toast smell, not much else.

Taste is mostly malt, slightly burned taste, then a touch of hop bitterness. Nothing spectacular going on here, but not offensive at all.

Mouth feel is thin body with a dry finish.

Overall, just okay.

On tap at the brewpub in Alpine.

Appearance: Clear amber with a small and short-lived head. No lacing.

Aroma: mild light malt with a hint of honey.

Flavor: sweet up front and only mild bitterness later on. A hint of honey. The flavor builds over time peaking in the finish. Very malty for APA style.

Feel: Light-medium body with near medium carbonation.

O: a mild but tasty and enjoyable APA.
