The body of this beer was very clear, and the color was a lovely shade of golden amber. The head was two finger thick, and very sturdy. The smell was quite a bit more subdued, considering the fresh Centennial hops, that were supposed to be showcased here. The taste changed the disappointment I felt in the smell rapidly. There was very juicy, citric hop bitterness exploding on the tongue from the beginning of each sip. The beer stayed citric mid palette, and finished with a peppery blast. The body felt just right for the style, and the malts were simple, and were in a supporting role. This was an enjoyable IPA for me.

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.
