Another one of the beers I wonder why it took be so long to get to, esp. at the price point ($3.99) and the decent ratings.
A really pretty intense hop oil aroma, and since it is something I usually don't favor, this one isn't so bad, but still a mark against it. Additionally, citrus, pine and grass.
Nice color with a reddish hue to the orange amber. Nice dense, almost soapy head with interesting pocking.
Taste also has the intense, excessiveness of the hop oils and it works to make this out of balance, as it covers the other, and IMHO, better flavors elsewhere in the drink. A very brief touch of sweetness. A long smooth bitterness with a touch of dryness.
A little bigger than moderate feel with a soft carbonation. Some malt approaches the advertised Winter Warmer in time, but it pales in presence in comparison to the hop oils.
I usually think of Cenntenial as having the sweet/spicy quality but I"m not finding that here very much.
I like Full Sail, but this one is just not hitting the mark with me.
