.Poured into a Turbinator style glass.

A: Big two finger head that quickly dissipates into an annulus, nice wispy lacing . Golden hue with haze.

S: Grapefruit and bitter citrus. Spicy yeast and gentle toasty malt.

T: Follows nose. Grapefruit and other bitter citrus blends into creamy dry estery/white peppery yeast. Very interesting quaff due to simplicity and good ingredients.

M: Creamy. Dry. Spicy finish. Very faint booziness at ultimate out breath. Don't burb....it ruins this pleasant finish with an astringent quality.

O: One of my favorites. Will seek out more as space in my tasting schedule is limited with the varieties I have available to me with new things coming around all the time.

For me, this is the gold standard of IPAs. A revelation when I first tried it years ago, and still a reliable top-tier tap choice despite the massive increase in quality local competition throughout the country. There's a reason it has become as popular as it has without a ton of marketing money behind it. Complex, balanced, gorgeous Centennial nose — perfect for anything from a single bottle to a few pints.
