Bottled: unk (rubbed off)

It's a lightly toasted golden raisin with a solid sheet of fine whipped toasted cream foam atop. Smells of resin, pine, some grain and a little metal. Nice and assertively hoppy on the nose, has what I consider a classic PNW smell. Flavor follows suit with resin, pine and some body oder...Maybe a bit of grapefruit pith and a solid amber like malt character with a bit of biscuit. Medium bodied with slightly soft carb and an off dry finish. The beer reminds me of Bitter American from 21st Amendment, and since it's on the shelves around me, and canned, it would be my go to over this one. Good though.

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.
