3.43/5 rDev -4.5%
Pours a deep amber colour with white bubbly head. Large bubbles, sticks around. Not bad, not great.
Smells quite malty upfront with a touch of pearl barley grain, light toffee. US hops take over midway, grapefruit and lemon with a touch of bitterness. Fairly standard US hop character.
Palate starts with caramel notes and a touch of rye spice. Hops are fruity, with apple, pear and grapefruit providing the biggest bitterness on the back. Touch of spice; the hops are strong but not offensive. Quite nice.
Decent body, slight touch of carbonation.
Not a bad single-hopped APA but it verges on IPA-level bitterness. I also question Centennial as a choice for a single hop but that's just a matter of personal preference (as are so many assessments of single hop beers).

3.75/5 rDev +4.5%
A single-hopped APA brewed by Red Duck with the Victorian Homebrewing champion, using (unsurprisingly) the eponymous Centennial. Tried on-tap at the GABS festival in Melbourne.
Pours a dark golden colour, almost trending towards a pale brown with some hazing. Head is an off-white ring, but relatively solid. Body is light, and the lacing is mild and unremarkable. Looks decent enough.
Bright orange characters on the nose, with a slightly more organic musty, sweaty character following it up. Solid neutral malt forms a basis. There's also a slight hint of white pepper. It's a bit mild all up, but quite pleasant.
Spritzy orange zest on the front, with a sour candy type of aromatic flavour. This all drops out pretty quickly though, leaving the mid-palate feeling a little bit empty and light. Clipped bitterness on the back, while a lingering pale malt character helps extend the hops a little further. Not bad.
Feel is smooth and clean.
Overall, this is very decent stuff. Nice, light and clean and quite refreshing.
