3.42/5  rDev n/a
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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 n/a

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.
