12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a moderately clear amber color. The head is about one finger high and white, with a somewhat rough-looking texture. It retains itself alright, though, and leaves some lacing on the side of the glass.
S: I've noticed how I kind of like catty IPAs, and this one fits that mold. The hops also provide melon, mango, and herbal notes. There is a touch of sweetness, as well.
T: The first sip strikes me weirdly with its finishing herbal hop tones. After another sip, it smooths out nicely. There are twinges of juicy tropical fruits on the front end; I wish this was more pronounced. Otherwise, it's a simplistic, enjoyable small IPA.
M: I look for these kind of beers to be crisp and light - and this fits that criteria well. I'd enjoy it more if some of the finishing astringency was cleaned up a touch, but this still has good drinkability.
O: Good, not great. As much as I love trying these session IPAs, there's only one so far I can say I loved (DayTime). Not to mention, session IPAs don't make a huge amount of sense from a monetary standpoint. Having said that, between All Day and Centennial, I'd choose this one every single time.
