Nice bitter smell off the bat.

Golden amber tint swimming coolly below solid initial carbonation.

Deep hop taste with faint alcohol nuances when sipped and breathed onto. Present after taste with hops clinging lovingly to tongue and roof of mouth.

Good IPA, solid ABV.

Complements seafood pasta (clam and shrimp in wine soaked tomato base sauce) well.

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.
