I like the color of this beer a lot. It's a nice light amber color, clear, but not crystal clear. The head was a bit disappointing; small and bubbly, rather than creamy.
Smell was a bit subtle, but nice; classic centennial. The smell didn't carry over to taste though and I had to really work to taste the hops. It also had a touch of sourness to it and the carbonation didn't seem quite right. Not a bad beer at all, but I was disappointed, given what I'd read in other reviews. To be fair, this had been bottled 2 months ago. I'd like to try it again fresh and will re-review if I do. Overall, a decent ipa, but nothing to get excited about.
