Poured from the bomber into a big ass mason jar with a pewter handle securely attached.

A: deep golden ruddy color with a huge rocky 4 finger head that dissipates to a 3 mm disk. carbonation is lightly active. Hazy.

S: WOW. Dank Centennial. This is nuts. So intense. This is what people think of when they talk of C hops. Delicious. There is middling malts, ala crystal or some other two--row hiding. Bitter pine yields to citrus, e.g. grapefruit. white pepper. there is a LOT going on, and it is perfect, Some strange dankness.

T: perfectly follows nose. smooth hops are yielding to bitter hopsplosion. it is a very intense citrus experience, and malt at swallow is minor.

M: Creamy. Bitter citrus. spritely side of tongue. Does not linger nearly long enough, goes a little stale bread at ultimate finish.

O: Expensive. But worth it as an occasional quaff. My gosh this is good.

This is about as good as it gets if you are a hophead. Nothing gets in the way of the floral, citrus and pine smell and taste. Hoppy resin lingers long after the swallow. Hop bitterness stays on your tongue as well. Just a perfect example of a west coast IPA. Damn near perfect beer.
