Pours a very clear golden. Lacing all the way down.
Typical Centennial hop aroma, citrus (orange) with a slightly catty background. I know there's Cascade in there too, but the Centennial dominates.
Balanced IPA, beautiful hop flavor, but nice malt backbone backing it up. It's plenty bitter, but not abrasive. Perfectly dry, but the mouthfeel is chewy and full.
Overall, in a world filled with breweries filling their line-ups with IPA's and half of them being awful, it's great to be reminded that there are still some world class beers in the style.

On tap at BC's Pizza and Beer
A: Pours a deep golden yellow with nice white head that fades and laces nicely
S: First thing I get is the malt sweetness, followed immediately by tropical and citrus hoppy goodness.
T: Big citrus hop kick, a little almost tropical fruit like notes in there, all well balanced by malt sweetness. There's a bit of grapefruit bitterness on the finish that hangs around.
M: Medium body, medium carbonation, very refreshing
O: I spend so much time trying new stuff that brews like this from right in my back yard often get ignored. Drinking them for the first time in a while is like sitting down with an old friend. Very tasty brew that hits the spot.
