The 22 oz bottle that I purchased was slightly different - it was labeled "First Growth Single Malt Ale." Pours pale cloudy gold with large white head. Aroma of bread. Although there is a bitterness there, it is a very mild hops flavor, almost more of a spring bock due to the balance with the malt. Medium body, easy to drink. Very effervescent.

Hazey yellow pour with a healthy head. Not what I’d expect from APA....seems like more of a farmhouse ale to me. Bitter throughout with a crisp taste. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a hazy yellow with a decent and lasting white head. The nose is light with notes of grass, slight florals, and a little fruitiness. Fairly light on the tongue with grass, citrus, and slight dough notes. Well balanced and easy to drink. Light to medium body with softer carbonation and a short to medium finish. I though this was a sessionable and reasonably tasty brew.

Bomber. Crisp and clean. Citrus with some malty sweetness in the background. Mild bitterness throughout that gets stronger towards the end.
