was poured in a 4 hands mason style jar. pour was deep amber with a dark creamy head. light lacing.

very fruity with heavy citrus and deep pine.

a bit less fruit in the flavor and a bit more pine and resin. bitter grapefruit and pine syrup. quite malty through out.

mild to moderate carbonation, slightly resin like.

very decent, was easy to put down. very bitter.

Served on tap at the Royale

A - pours a reddish orange color with a nice head, akin to a puffy cloud with holes in it

S - nose is juicy grapefruit hops with grainy malts

T - taste opens up with citrus flavors upfront. These move on to a cereal and grain malt base but are overtaken by bitter grapefruit hops. The hops finish off this beer and leave a grapefruit rind bitterness on the tongue.

M - full and well carbonated

D - overall, this is a good, hoppy red ale. The flavors were very fresh and bright - solid effort put forth by 4 Hands with this one.

This can is near the end of it's shelf life and so I'm expecting that some of the "brightness" of the aroma and flavors has faded. (But it has been refrigerated for most of its life and so should still be drinkable.)

The beer pours out into a Duvel glass a nice, reasonably clear copper-red color with an ivory 3/4" head. The head recedes fairly soon to a thin layer of foam and a nice leggy 1/4" ring around the glass. Sipping leaves a nice pattern of lacing that includes patches and and speckles of foam some of which remain stuck to the glass while a few slide back down to the liquid.

The aroma is faint but clearly Centennial, with some pine resin showing along with a touch of citrus. There's also some nice caramel malt in here.

The flavors are basically what would be expected from the nose with the caramel malt backbone supporting the pine resin and a touch a citric hop character.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and there is light prickly carbonation. The finish begins in the mix of malt and bitterness with the malt fading faster, leaving the bitterness to disappear into dryness.

As I expected this beer is on its down slope from its "sweet spot" and normally I'd not have bought it. However, given that it is canned and has been kept cold most of its life I decided to gamble a bit. Based on experience with Centennial in other beers (e.g., Founders, etc.) I'm giving this beer scores that may be a bit higher than what this particular can deserves but making a note that the beer is worth a second try at a younger age with score revision if needed.

Received as an extra from Stringer_Bell- thanks! Appearance is a somewhat murky dark red with a thin layer of head the leaves thin lines of lacing. The aroma has a deep earthiness with grapefruit, wood, tea leaves, and rye. The taste starts with a malty sweetness which quickly gives way to deep earthy hop tones. Notes of caramel, rye, grass, grapefruit, and pine wood come through on the flavor. The taste is progressively bitter as it passes the palate and have the most bitter tones at the end. Mouthfeel is moderate with appropriate carbonation. Overall, this doesn't feature the brightness I would want with a centennial single hopped brew, this is a nice earthy and malt forward IPA.

12oz can, no apparent freshness date
A - fluffy ivory head holds excellent retention atop a red-copper colored ale
S - big aroma with spicy, floral, piny, citric hops, bready malt, caramel
T - juicy grapefruit, pine, caramel, toasted grain, bread crust, spicy Centennial hops
M - thinner side of medium for body, modest carbonation
O - I knew I would like this one. I love bitter, red IPA's, plus with this one brewed with Centennial hops, it's just an added bonus for me! I'll probably buy this from time to time. Very enjoyable!

Crystal clear ruby red color with a decent white head and md lacing.

It had a nice citrus hoppy nose to it and, as expected, a nice caramel malt sweetness.

Great balance between the malt and hoppy bite. Citrus and pine.

Medium and smooth mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

I found it to be a real solid hoppy red.

Pours an uber hazy copper orange color, moderate cap of off white froth, some sticky lacing. Bready, malty and light caramel from the get go, solid pine, grapefruit and herbal hops, kiss of rye like spice. Bready to begin, lightly sweet, hops provide solid bitterness, pine and grapefruit, some spicyness. Medium bodied, lightly chunky, slightly creamy, dry. Solid intro to the brewer in a style im picky about.
