Pours a clear reddish amber color with off-white head. Pine, citrus, caramel malt, amd some spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a piney malty note.

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.

Reddish amber hued with a fingernail of beige head covering the majority of the top. The taste is a blend of dark bready malt and citrus like Centennial hops. The malt is in the forefront. The hops appear more in the fade. The body is lightly sticky.

A - Fine red clear beer with an off white head, mild lacing.

S - Honey sweet, floral notes, a bite of pine, with a smidge of lemon citrus.

T - Strong bitter bite up front, slight pine and lemon, malty sugar sweetness.

M - Serious hop crunch, strong dry on the close.

O - A bit more of a punch in the nose than I expected. Hop is front and center. So it is a good thing.
