L: Fairly hazy golden amber with an creamy white head and excellent lacing.
A: Big floral, citrus hops, with some grassy notes and an ample sweet, biscuit malt backbone. Some fruity esters are evident, as well as a slight amount of yeastiness.
T/M: Medium bitterness upfront, moves into some big floral, grapefruit rind hop flavor. Balanced very well by a substantial toasty/crackery malt backbone, touch of caramel sweetness. Full mouthfeel for the style, but still dry, likely a good amount of dextrine malt used. Clean finish, with a touch of yeast and some punchy alcohol notes.
Overall, a big flavored mid-country IPA, showcasing all Centennial hops. Very well balanced, big mouthfeel, but does not skimp on the hop flavor. This is my new standard for a great IPA, anything better than this is truly exceptional.
