Comments: A new Massachusetts brewery from Norwood presents this APA named for the regions hardest bowling game.  It’s VERY pale, more of a straw-colored cloud with negligible head.  The aroma is apricot, a bit skunky, with a grapefruit taste that balances the bitter with a palatable, bready aftertaste.  The beer leaves light lacing and sticky mouthfeel.  Better than expected!
