Poured into a Chuckanut pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of piney, lightly citrus hops with herbal hints, light biscuit malt. Flavor follows with piney hops and lighter citrus and herbal notes. Light bready and biscuit malt gives good support but stays in the background to put the hop flavors on display. Light to medium bodied. The hops are more subdued in the flavor than in the aroma, which is itself not intense, but like the other ales in this series, the neutral malt body and light flavors allow savoring the single hop flavors without immediate taste burn out. This centennial is my favorite hop so far in the series; I like the piney, gently herbal flavors. Not an intense hop monster, but does its job of presenting the hops well.

From 22 oz bomber to pint glass

Perfect copper-tan appearance, clear, a gentle pour yield a small, sticky head that laces wherever it touches. Floral, centennial hops lead the bouquet, yielding a distinctly tea-like smell. Freshly pressed grains and husky malts round the bouquet. The flavors are even more tea-like, showcasing the exclusive use of centennial hops. Nicely framed by its malt-backbone, the floral, orange-tea-like hops are balanced by honey sweetness and a pastry backdrop.

This is a great example of a single-hopped IPA. By isolating centennial, you can really taste the "Northwest" hop aspects of a Northwest style IPA.

Served from the bottle into a nonic glass

A- Poured a light copper color, semi-hazy, off white frothy head that left dense glass coating lace.

S- Some citrusy and piney notes, slightly fragrant, sweet malt character, and grainy notes. I really had to dig my nose in there to pull anything out. Pretty light aroma. Does not smell like it is double dry-hopped.

T- Some big buttery and sweet malty notes, some citrusy and light piney notes, light bitterness on the finish. A little off buttery and grainy aftertaste that just doesn't seem quite right. *As the beer warmed up some the floral notes and bitterness became more prominent and some of the off flavors subsided.

M- A little slick and oily, soft carbonation, and slightly watery finish.

O- My first disappointment from Hopworks. I got this beer very fresh but the hop character is really lacking and for a single hop beer that should highlight an individual hop that is disappointing.

On draught At the Orenco Taphouse, appearance is burnt gold with a small white collar, light lace.

Smell is nice, some lime, which I find odd for Centennials, some pine resin though.

Taste is more pine, as expected, some bready malt as well.

Mouthfeel is sharply crisp, oily, medium bodied.

Drinkability is solid , a good single-hop IPA. I'm pleasantly surprise by the lime notes.

22oz bottle poured into a large mug. No bottle codes or dates that I can find.

Pours cloudy orange-amber with a smallish pale head, long retention. Smell is generically hoppy, lots of straw. Something very citrusy in the smell.

Taste is mild (and I need to remember this is a single IPA). More of what I'm calling a straw flavor. A little lemon rind bitterness, but not much. Some bready characteristic. It's good, just mild. I might place this more in the Pale Ale category.

Mouthfeel is nice, airy and pleasing. Overall, it's pretty good.
