22 oz bottle that catches the eye. A lot of information, logos, and labels on this one. Sold me. Pours a lighter copper color with a nice foam head to it. Fresh hops and citrus fruit aroma. It’s a single hop, but a lot of that one hop, which is awesome. Nice grapefruit flavor with an easy hop finish. Damn this beer is good. Solid IPA to say the least. Time to go find the rest of this series. Loved it.

On draught at hub - pours a nice clear copper color with medium thick white head. Nose is both hoppy, syrupy, and boozy. Taste is hop forward with dry citrus finish. Centennial hops are one of my favorites.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Bomber. It pours to a dark golden color. The aroma is very strong pine & citrus hops. The taste is a strong hop flavor up front followed by a good malt balance. Overall an excellent IPA.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Aug. 2013, bottle from Bottleworks, SF) Pours bright amber, crystal clear. Aroma is quite light, sprite-like, hops, lychee and pineapple with an underlying sticky-sweet malt. The taste is where it takes the wrong direction. there is some fruit and citrus from the hop, but very fleeting, followed by a bitter and sweet richness that disappears almost as soon at it appears. Not a bad beer, but a bad IPA and a forgettable experience.
