A: Very clear pale orange pour with a small white head and a bunch of lacing.
S: Huge hop aroma. Citrus, grass, pine and spicy.
T: Hop flavor front row and center! The strong citrus flavor of the hops and high acidity make this beer taste a lot like grapefruit juice. Pine is also a big note, and just a little spicy. Malt flavor is almost completely obscured by the lingering bitterness of the hops. I would by no means call this a balanced beer, but if it's pure unadulterated hop flavor you are after, you probably can't do better, especially in this price range.
M: Surprisingly light body and good carb.
I drink this beer fairly often. Lovers of hop flavor rejoice. This is definitely not a beer for the faint of heart, or really anyone who is not already an IPA lover. Double IPA is truly my favorite style and I find it a little overwhelming, but I keep coming back to it if I ever have the taste for Centennial hops. Cheers!
