On tap at a local restaurant, served in a sam adams signature glass.
A - Golden yellow color. Nice two finger white head. Some nice lacing.
S - Light citrus, hops, yeast, and some grassiness.
T - Lemon and some light grapefruit, bitter hops, grass, and a nice malt finish. Very fresh and a nice balance between hops and malt. Drinkability is quite high.
O - I really like this beer, and brewery. I've had a growler of this before and had the same thoughts. Its a nice well balanced PA that's at a great price point. To be able to find bombers of this at under $4 at every beer store in the area is fantastic.

3.41/5 rDev -5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Dirty blonde; hazy. Like that girl you once knew. You know the one.
Smell: Malty; dirty corn husks. Shuck it.
Taste: Not a forward malt. This one smacks the back of the palate. And, via the power of suggestion, it has a metallic "steel" quality to it.
Mouthfeel: Thin and clean to start, but it leaves you with something to think about.
Overall: A good beer. It's drinkable ("quaffable" in the douche vernacular). In other words, a descent session ale. It's good for a reliable romp, but not an earth shattering meet the parents type of beer. Keep it in on speed dial if nothing else hits.

A = a nice cloudy amber. My pint was served extremely cold, probably due to the sub-zero temperatures in the cellar during the cold NH winter. As a result, it had only a slight head. I actually had to wait awhile for it to warm up for the rest of my tasting.
S = Brisk? Can I use that term for beer? Also, a slight scent of citrus and yeast/bread. No detectable hops, light if any, and that makes me happy.
T = Reminded me very much of a heavy pilsner. Crisp, nice medium-light flavor. Very drinkable.
M = Again, like a heavy pilsner, if there is such a thing. It complimented my lunch quite nicely!
O = Even if I didn't seek this ale out, I would order it again if I saw it on a menu. I would even drink it sans food, as it is crisp, refreshing and leaves no "beer-ish" aftertaste. A very nice beer, indeed!
