Pours a light amber color with golden hues and a slight haze. The small off-white head lingers before falling to a thin sheet and leaves little lace.
Full on floral hop aroma with lots of grass, an herbal character, and some tart citrus. Not much malt in the nose, just a hint of toasted grain & bread..
An absolute hop assault that is intense and strong but not overly bitter. Very floral and herbal with a big tea-like quality. Citrus shows up as well but the malt scarce. I was surprised the hops in this were too much for me since I've been into hoppy beers lately. I'm starting to realize I am not a fan of the flavor of Centennial hops. Way too floral for my liking and the alcohol peaks in a little too much.
Full bodied and nicely carbonated. Creamy but too thick in my opinion for an IPA. OK drinkability, higher if you're a Centennial fan, but too harsh for me.
