22 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: dark amber with great clarity. Small white head with tiny creamy head laces the glass nicely.

S: Cantaloupe, Honeydew, mango, citrus, grass, and a little lemon. A little sweetness on the end.

T: tons of cantaloupe, honeydew, light lemon, sweet grass. Nice huge Citra hops a little juicy and a decent malt backbone.

M: medium bodied softer carbonation.

O: This beer is great if you love Citra hops. This is one of those beers I think ppl would have loved a couple years ago and won't be as impressed with now. I think it is still pretty impressive.

22 oz. Bomber

Pours a very nice cloudy dark golden yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slight malt, very nice citrus, with some pineyness. The taste is hoppy, slight malt, very nice citrus, with some nice pine notes, picking up some nice bitterness. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a really nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very tasty brew.
