Poured from a 12oz can with a canned on date of 8/27/18; into a pub glass.
Appearance- an oily gold with clean bubble streams; a thin soapy white head that leaves wonderful lacing.
Smell- very floral, freshly mowed grass and hints of peach and pineapple!
Taste- reverse of the nose, with peach and pineapple up front with a touch of floral and grass!
Feel- mild sweetness followed by just the right amount of bitterness; a little alcohol lingers.
Overall- a very good IPA that has an interesting nose to flavor profile!

12 oz can in a Tervis at the 2018 Dublin Irish Festival.
Pours amber with a tall, soapy, white head.
Moderately strong aroma with hops and little else.
Moderately high bitterness with plenty of grapefruit peel in the taste and aftertaste.

12oz can, filled 05-15-2018. Deep golden body is capped with a thick, creamy ivory head. Nose is earthy and piney Centennial hops with some citrus and caramel. Huge Centennial hop bitterness: grapefruit pith and zest with earthy pine resin that overpowers a bready caramel malt backbone. Fuller body, very resinous and sticky, pine lingers. I love Centennial hops, so I enjoyed this one.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 5/15/2018. Pours slightly hazy medium golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pineapple, citrus peel/rind, light pepper, pine, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey/caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/piney hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pineapple, citrus peel/rind, light pepper, pine, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey/caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pineapple, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey/caramel, and herbal, floral, grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/piney hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/sticky, and fairly crisp/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/piney hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish, not overly aggressive. Spot on Centennial showcase. Very juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank/earthy balanced hop complexity; nice bready malt backbone, with minimal residual sweetness. A very enjoyable offering as expected with the rest of the series.

Thrilled to be 6th reviewer of this flower bomb. (My fiancé wears flower bomb, so I'll share this with her)
a) Clear golden body with thickly lacing and lasting head.
s) Flower Bomb! Delicate, perfumey, flowery, powdery.
t) You've got to enjoy all aspects of a flower shop to like this boudoir of beer. Flower, nectar, perfume, humidity, earth, potting mix.
f) minerally, clean finish, never cloying, but odd and strange and feminine.
o) Must try for the novelty.

12oz canned 4/26/18 (22 days ago) poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass at fridge temp 7% ABV. The beer pours bright golden amber in color with off white head. The aroma is piney with some grapefruit mixed in. The taste is grapefruit and a touch of caramel with a moderately bitter piney finish. Mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. Overall, very good. This probably wouldn't replace any of the other centennial hopped midwest IPAs on my list but it's fresh any very nice.

Darker yellow with white head.
Pine, medium bitterness, caramel malt, light mint, sweetness, floral

Overall doesn't standout like the other variants but pairs well with food

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 fl oz can on June 3, 2018. The newest Hero takes flight to Centennial, the Lord of the “C” hops, allowing the fresh citrus and earthy characteristics to soar.

Drank this one straight from the can on a September Michigan evening in the woods. Decent aromas of biscuit malt and piney /citrus hops coming fromm the mouth of the can. Flavors are well baalnceo, with grapefruit pith, pine, and grassy hop notes riding a solid backbone of malt. The only catch is with every sip I was reminded of Two Hearted and how much I already love that one.
