Fresh, crisp and floral. Pours a light red color with very little head. Smells fresh and piney - great hops. Taste is a combo of piney hops and hibiscus tea and it is delicious!!!! Finishes with an essence of guava and crisp hops. This is a surprisingly fantastic brew!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Sonoma Cellars. Pours a very clear orangey pink - almost pink grapefruity - with a pink/white head. Nose is hugely floral, with tangy spices and citrus. Taste is of sweet flowers, tangy pine, grapefruit, some caramel. Herbal tangy and very dry. Almost a belgian yeast presence. Medium bodied with no alcohol noticed. Finishes sweet and tangy with some bitterness. Dry. Very interesting solid effort from a brewery that continues to hit their notes. 14.3

Pink color, big hibiscus note though out that is a bit overwhelming. Refreshingly light, which works better.

When I heard combination of hibiscus and IPA, I had only an unpleasant hunch.
The showy fragrance of Centennal, the color as which you imagine the tropics of hibiscus and the taste are very pleasant.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rosy, orangy color with off white bubbly head that held well and faded into a thick collar, heavy wisps, great legs, and good lacing. Aroma is sweet/floral hibiscus, faint bready malt sweetness, floral and slightly earthy hops. Taste began heavy on the hibiscus, with that dual hop flavor behind that. I really enjoy this, so I guess I’m a big fan of hibiscus. Good body, low-med carb, and low hop bitterness. Not particularly great for an IPA, but immensely enjoyable.
