This is an APA that won’t knock you’re socks off. It is just about perfect for the style however. So if you are looking for the next bigger, hoppier APA this ain’t it. It is just a well executed APA with no bad character whatsoever. Pours a light amber with a good-sized white head and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma is citrus floral hops. Taste is mildly bitter citrus hops with an ideal amount of sweet malt. The perfect session APA for me. The problem is that it is hard to find in Oregon. I bought the last bottle at the store today.
Just bought another bomber. As good as the first. Exceptional APA. Buy some now. Especially at the low 4.8% abv. Great session beer.

Slightly hazy golden with a spongy head. Aroma is floral and a little dank. Taste clean with citrus and grain notes. A bit of metallic feeling around mid-palate, and again on tongue afterwards, but fleeting both times. A nice pale ale, but I suspect my sample was a bit old. Would probably be amazing fresh

Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is grass, lemon, citrus hops. The taste is clear and crisp like a pilsner. Light and refreshing with a nice dirty hop bitterness. Not much malt going on here. A good regular pale ale for a summer day.

Świetny aromat chmielowy, cytryna, grejpfrut, winogrona, bardzo czysty i zachęcający. W smaku wytrawne, z wyraźną goryczką w stylu amarillo (pestka grepfruta), za którą nie przepadam, ale tu była ok. Finisz za to lekko męczący trawiasty. Niemniej jednak nie przegięte, orzeźwiające, idealne na plaże itd. No i dla hopheadów...

Quite a surprisingly nice beer. Medium golden copper with a medium head. Pleasant hops and malt aromatics with good hops bitterness with character, medium malt flavors, and a bit of earthiness from the oak barrel fermentation.

12oz bottle. Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is weak. Citrus, pine, moderate bitterness, watery mouthfeel. Nothing special but it's very drinkable. Would be pretty good on a hot day.

Sampled on draft at the Santa Barbara Airport. Pours out a nice golden copper color. Aroma is light and sweet of oranges and citrus. Hops are evident once you take a sniff. Taste is good, really clean and light but still very flavorful from the hops and slightly sweet caramel from the malt. This is a great example of a simple American Pale that really can be appreciated by many different people with different tastes. Reminded me of SNPA for how simple good flavor can really be sometimes. This is the kind of beer I would love to homebrew.
