Satisfying yet not in the style IPA. Maybe if i drank it at the brewery within a couple of weeks of release. Deep colour, a small lasting head. Neutral aroma. Leafy hop taste, no off note just not very citrus. Good drinkability, a tad above average mouthfeel. Someone from the West Coast sent me this - Derek?

12oz bottle from EskimoDave, part of the HopBox mix - thanks man!

Pours a whispy pale golden, clear and way too light for the style. Two fingers of head throw down patchwork lace.

Nose is faint, candied orange rind, pineapple, grassy hops with a dash of sweet citrus, hint of floral.

Enough hop character in the body - sweet pineapple, floral, hint of citrus, leafy without being resiny; but there was the same bitterness in the craft lager I just had - this barely reaches pale ale territory (though it's growing on me). Malt profile is sweet caramel, little heft or roundness to the body. Sharp carb (perhaps a little too so), thin body. Could pound through these and for 6% that's not bad but this is no IPA, an American Pale Ale. Not a bad drinker but the biggest fault as a beer is the malt profile - thin and lacking complexity or presence.

Purchased as part of their new IPA mixpack, Centennial IPA is a member of Phillips' Growhop series. The beer pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a thin head that fades quickly. The aroma is citrusy with some sour tangerine, orange and grapefruit. Some dry biscuit malt flavor leads the way, with citrusy, herbal hops taking over. The herbal flavor stays in the finish, with a hint of resiny orange peel lingering. Overall I would put this a little below Phillps other IPA's but I love that they are putting out a mix pack full of hoppy beers. It is sure to be a regular purchase.

Box was marked best before My 17, 2011
Crisp, clean and clear pale gold. Not much of a head on this and little lacing. Smell was surprisingly weak for Phillips IPA. A pinch of centennial hops and acidity of fresh apples. The taste had the citrus and pine notes and was mellow. No bitterness here. Not overpowering to the senses and didn't take away from anything else. Goes down smooth and is easy to consume a few in a sitting.

This is the mystery IPA in the Growhop mixed 12 pack. It pours mid gold with a big white head. The nose is great with lovely piney notes. The beer is hoppy but lots of malt anchor the midbody. The single hop ( Centennial) shines in this beer and I look forward to other single hop beers in the IPA mixed box. The beer seems lighter than the regular Hopcirle Ipa but it still works well for the style
