After a few sips of those centennial hops, the tongue wakes-up and the pleasure begins. Not too hoppy and just the right balance of sweetness. If you like Sierra' Nevada"s Torpedo - this blows it away.

Fresh Centennial is quite a brew. Coppery red in color, a vigorous pour creates a nice two finger frothy
head. My honker picks up plenty of flowery citrus, as well as my taste buds. Very well balanced,
the Centennial hops dominate up front with gentle transitioning to sweet caramel malt and bitterness. So smooth,
yet it's a hop punch. The carbo is very well done, light and airy. Drinkability is dangerously high.
If your entering the world of IPAs and don't know where to begin. This is the place to start...

Serving: 12 oz bottle poured into an IPA glass.

Appearance: Dark, deep amber and slightly hazy. Thick, dense, rocky head of khaki foam that lingers with good lacing.

Smell: Mild, malty aroma.

Taste: Roasty malt and caramel with citrus rind, resin as well as dank earthiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and slightly oily with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Full flavored, malty, balanced IPA.
