This ale comes on late, at the finish, and it’s worth the wait. Near amber in color, medium airy head. Aroma of light hops, very faint. Taste brings the hops to the fore, competing with the malt, but kicks in in spades at the finish. well crafted ale.

Bomber. Light pine and citrus balanced with caramel in the background. Crisp and smooth. Earthy with some spice. Lemon finish with a touch of bitterness. Tasty.
