a bold and flavorful centennial wet hopped brew, nice to see these guys pushing into idaho, i have liked what they have done in my limited experience with their stuff, it all seems to be professionally done and quite inspired. this is mildly hazy from the tap, huge tall white head on it, the centennial is immediately obvious. sometimes in wet hop beers, the cones take on a different identity than we are all used to in their kilned and pelletized forms, especially simcoe, at least for me, and this year more than ever, but none of that is the case here, its centennial as we all know and love it. its woody, piney, high alpha still, and dense and woodsy and northwestern to me, still drinks like ipa, the wetness only seems to amplify its intensity, not soften it as can sometimes be the case with these. its green but without that vegetal bite, just really fresh, and there are a lot of hop oils swirling around in here. a real basic grain base, pale barley and a little crystal or something, basic but good for the hops, needed structure to support, so well build there. lingering pine and weedy dankness on the tongue, a little grain sugar leftover, a pretty clean fermentation profile, and pretty much a maxed out hop intensity. its nice beer, fresh as can be, and while not super different or anything, its very well executed. a standout from a number of wet hopped beers i had in the same session.

A classic looking pale orange body with an impressive and clingy off white foam.

Kind of bland aroma really. Earthy with hints of citrus peel.

Flavor follows the same path. Again, kind of bland but has an indescribable nostalgic pale ale flavor about it.

Light feel, balanced leaning towards bitter. Very easy to drink.

This doesn't scream fresh hop or boundary pushing, but it is a good beer. More like a classic Pale Ale to me. Cheers.
