So I was trying this beer for th first time after a Flying Dog Brewery Tour. Nothing like straight from the Factory flavor. Our tour guide said this beer was brewed in the same fashion as the Raging Bitch, but only using one hop variety "Centennial" unlike Raging Bitch which uses three different varietals in the brewing process.
The beer pour golden and is translucent. Ice cold. Carbonation was moderate to heavy like most Flying Dog Beers. During their process they force carbonation adding a little extra zip.
As for the aroma this compared to the other Single Hop Imperial IPAs was the most pungent. I thought it was the most bitter between the two others I tried Chinook and Citra. The taste was light in respect to other breweries that focus on Ales and was very crisp. I ended up buying a growler of the Single Hop Imperial IPA but preffered the Chinook.

Bottle into glass
A - Clear golden color with a medium sized off-white creamy head with good retention, slowly recedes to a thin film on top. Leaves heavy lacing
S - Orange, Grapefruit, booze, light malt
T - Grapefruit and lemon, then orange, bread, alcohol bite, sweetness, and a little caramel malt, got very boozy as it warmed
M - Heavy and creamy mouthfeel, moderate/low carbonation
O - An interesting and enjoyable brew, a little on the sweet side. Began to taste a lot like booze as it warmed up
