12 oz single can bought from Lifesource in Salem OR $1.80 Pours an ever so slightly hazy gold with a very atractive 3/4 inch white creamy head. Aromas of tropical fruit..certainly pineapple and mango...quite "bright" stil. Taste similar but maybe too sugary sweet..but it certainly goes down well enough. The mouth feel is OK..its medoum thickness and slightly above medium carbonation..it works. I found this a very nice drinkable summer IPA,

HUB GEAR UP IPA
12oz can purchased at Huckleberry's in Spokane. According to the stamp on the bottom of the can, this was canned on December 20, 2016. According to the info on the can, it's 14 ° plato, 6.2% alcohol and has 65 IBUs

Poured into a Big Sky Brewing shaker pint glass, this was a hazy, cloudy shade of golden amber, with a big, pillowy white head. Said head took quite a while to drop and left lots of lace on the sides of the glass. Gazing into the glass, one could see scores of tiny bits of sediment floating about.

Grapefruity and piney hop aromas were on hand to greet the workers at my olfactory, along with a mildly sweet malt scent.

Modestly sweet and bitter hop flavors led the charge, with some mildly sweet, caramelly malt flavor providing a backbone.
Mildly dry at the swallow.

Medium bodied, with a slightly creamy and resiny mouthfeel.

Decent but nothing essential. This would be a pleasant IPA to quaff at a bar a couple times in a sitting, but isn't something I'd exert much effort towards to track down.

Golden amber, on the lighter side of it anyway. Bubbly, tan head with streak lacing. Aroma is light citrus and cracker malt. The flavor reminds me of a watered down version of their flagship IPA. It's not bad, but not as good. Some orange, grapefruit, and herbal notes. The cracker malt gives it a smooth, drinkable quality. A bit thin in the finish, but not a bad aftertaste. I think this beer is decent, but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it.

On tap at CENTRL Office, Portland.
Hazy blonde with loose froth. 3.75
Herb and lots of lemon. 4
Cracker, than pineapple, melon rind, and grapefruit with a clean linger. 4
Crisp, light, salty. 4

Halfway to Vermont. Light malt load makes it easy to session. I hear this is HUB’s new shiny thing; I’d drink it all summer if I could. 4

Pours a hazy blonde with a short white head. There's a nice aroma of tropical fruit and cracked pepper. The flavor dives deeper into classic grapefruit with peach and then hits a dry biting finish. Lots of juicy hops and it's easy drinking, I'd buy a case.
