A bomber poured into my pint glass. This beer is a clear copper/brown color. The white, fluffy head is about an inch thick when poured. Settles to a nice surface coating with excellent lace. Aromas wise this baby is dominated by hops all the way, backed by some bready malts. Flavor wise this beer is also dominated by citrusy and floral hop bitterness, once again with a sweet malt backbone. Great flavor! Has a crisp and creamy, full bodied and sort of chewy mouthfeel. Moderate to high carbonation. this beer coats the mouth and feels a bit oily when doing so. One of the more hoppy APA's I have ever had. Very easy to drink indeed. This fine beer certainly reminds me more of an IPA than most APA's I have had. A very fine beer here indeed!

A: A dark reddish amber color. Big head and extravagant lacing to boot. Eye appeal is at pinnacle level, superior if you will.

S: The wet hops play the game well, and a matter of fact ends up as the MVP. Very hoppy indeed. The malt coagulates with the hops and form an essence of bliss.

T: A big bang on the forefront. Hops in nature come forward, then settles with some mild spice and tones of pine and citrus. Magnificent!

M: Bite a plenty. Little thick on the forefront, sippabilty is not a problem. Crisp brew with some punch sums it up nicely.

D: American Pale Ale or IPA is the question at hand. Hopheads will love this concoction. Its intense in flavor and will do the trick if you're looking for a fix.

Recommended to craft beer lovers and hop fans, both far and near.
