look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance:
Pours a nice white head and nice white lacing. The beer itself is a beautiful golden amber.

Smell:
Strong orange smells with bits of malt.

Taste:
Strong taste of orange with some nice pale malts. The malts are a bit on the sweet side but I also get some burnt tastes as well.

Mouthfeel:
Medium-Bodied. Medium carbonation. Typical IPA feel.

Overall:
A very good beer and will probably include it as part of my rotation during the Spring. The beer is pretty balanced overall and goes well with most things.

Centennial is dry and hoppy, the way an IPA should be. The aroma is not overpowering, like some of the higher-rated IPAs. I wish the flavor would linger more, but then again, I see the appeal of it remaining dry and finishing neat. This beer stands alone as a readily available IPA in my area, and it's an excellent option for people who want a clean night cap, without committing to a heavier Imperial.
