I tried. I really tried to like this brew, but I just don't like it. Looks great, pours like a champ, nice color great lasting head. And that's the best part. Where's the nose? I don't get a thing here. Bitter to the end, but not much else IMO, a one trick pony. A little boozy, I can taste the alcohol, and the finish leaves a lot to be desired. I'm fighting drinking this six, but I won't buy it again there are too many others out there to taste or buy. Too bad a great brewery IMO missed the mark, or maybe they hit it. It's a tribute to Centennial, so maybe it's a me thing.

I thought going into it I would love this beer, but... I tried my best to find something about this brew I liked but just couldn't. There's not much nose to this beer whatsoever which is what really kills it for me. Very bland and it tastes just like it smells... Nothing but bitterness with a slight hop taste in there and not much flavor at all.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Color: Copper with a nice off-white head that fades quickly

Aroma: Citrusy and floral hops, hint of roses.

Flavor: Sweet malt, citrusy flavor upfront, then a weird dose of roses! What the F@$K! Fading to a nice bitterness. Full-bodied.

Overall: Aaaaa, I'm not sure I like this either, that rose flavor is really throwing me off. It's not my favorite IPA, of that I'm sure.

Originally sampled on 12 January 2003. I am writing this review from my notes.
Oh-oh, screw top, bad omen! This pours opaque burnt amber with a thin white head. It has a slight hoppy aroma. The taste is more grapefruit than hops. This was a disappointing beer.
