look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: 22 oz brown bomber with a blurb about the beer on the side of the label, no freshness date.
Appearance: Clear copper-orange colour with a hearty off white lace that leaves small patches all of the glass.
Smell: Fairly bristly hoppy aroma with a fruity back round, rather malty underneath the hops with hints of caramel.
Taste: Beefy medium body with a moderate carbonation and smooth and creamy mouth feel. Aggressive prickly hop bitterness with a juicy fruit character both from the hops and yeast. Suggestions of tangerines and pineapple on the tongue, caramel maltiness middle to end though has difficulty getting through the big hop presence. Hop flavour leaves an everlasting finish of raw herb and a touch of earth that helps dry in the end.
Notes: Hopped with a single variety of hop called Centennial, well structured to make for a great American IPA with an outstanding balance and drinkability.
Serving type: bottle
