Bomber bottle, purchased at State Line in MD and transported by my drinking buddy JP.

Pours lightly hazed chestnut amber, under a frothy and lasting medium khaki head, that leaves thick, large and high blotches of stickage.

Herbal/tea hop nose, with an earthiness that's inviting and makes ya want to give this one a big swig.

Tasty and fresh tasting ale, with ample hop presence and malt to sweeten things up a bit. Hops continue on the leafy/herbal tea theme yet with a bit of a bite. Notes of some soft lime, more tea, and a tea infused finish.

Decent and well crafted, but I'm not in love...too much tea character for me, I like more on the citric side I suppose..

Bottle: Poured an orangey color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of fresh green hops with pungent notes that are somewhat interesting. Taste is also dominated by fresh green hops notes with some pungent notes and some lightly sweet caramel malt that is also noticeable. Body is about average for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad but I am not sure Centennial is the best hops for single hops IPA and too bad I didn't notice the dating on the bottle before buying.

22oz bottle into SN ipa glass. A very warm tip of my hat to Rusel_G for sending this my way.

A: Pours a clear honey colored amber with a couple of fingers of greasy off-white head. Head faded into a fuzzy, greasy film and bubbly collar that left streaks of soapy lace down the glass.
S: Huge fresh notes of centennial hops with just a kiss of caramel malt and alcohol. I get notes of orange sickle, pineapple, and tropical fruits mixed with light notes of citrus rind and tangerine juice.
T: Follows the nose with flavors of citrus, caramel, tangerine, orange rind, pineapple, and slight tropical fruits. The finish is sweet and full of fruit nectar, and the aftertaste is lightly bitter, floral, and lingering.
M: Medium body, slick and fairly viscous mouthfeel, with low carbonation and low bitterness.
O: Definitely a solid ipa but nothing exceptional. I would drink this again, but not necessarily seek it out. Thank again Russell!.
