On tap at Milltown in Carrboro. gotta love Milltown!

Beer pours bright yellow and is topped by a light once inch head.

Smell is loaded with centennial hops. I mean what else did you really think? Its called Centennial IPA. Smell is loaded with aroma, but a nice dose of bitter as well. Hops are balanced in the nose at least.

I love the taste, but I cant give it a perfect since Ive already had Bell's Two-Hearted. The Centennial hops are everywhere. The hops totally dominate the flavor, but I dont mind. Citric hops are exploding everywhere. Ripe lemon and citrous fruits dominate the tongue, and I like it. Malt bill is really lost in the background, and thats ok.

poured from a bottle...

pours a golden hazy brown...translucent...beautiful actually...

smells of semi-ripe citrus fruits...orange, sweet lemon, and mango...

full mouth of IPA gooodness...this is one of those "goto" IPAs that u constantly keep in yer fridge...

This is a banner IPA for the beergeek masses...IPAs are my fav style...this one is great to intersperse this time of year with Celebration, Two Hearted, Crooked Tree, and of course the new and unbelievable beer Lagunitas Sucks as well as the best value in craft beer...Hop Stoopid...

330ml bottle poured in a pokel glass.

A: Huuuge bubbled fluffy beige head when poured. Maximum retention since it "never" disappears completely leaving many many lacings aroung... Color is orange and cloudy (IPA style)

S: A perfect bouquet of hops. Very grassy and refreshing. An American beer (100%). Some caramel malts but again, basically hops.

T: Follows the nose: Caramel malts and hops. Once again, absolutely grassy and refreshing. Dry as it should be. Its 65 IBUs guarantee a pleasant, mild but considerable bitterness

M: Refreshing light body. Delicious bitter hoppy end

O: God save the American micro hoppy beers, they are just great! :)
