12oz bottle. Took over 5 years for me to actually try this.

A: Clear golden color with a dissipating white head. Slightly sticky on the glass.

N: Grapefruit and pineapple are dominant over the pine and earth. A little mango and some peach. Very pleasant.

T: Lots more of the tropical fruit flavors. Slightly bitter with more malty of base. Like froot loops. Not the most flavorful,but it’s refreshing.

M: Lighter and not resinous.

O: A classic of the style, but unlike Pliny it doesn’t still stand on its own. Still enoyable, though.

2 month old bottle poured to my SN IPA glass.

A- Golden to orange color with brilliant clarity, pours with a two finger white head. Good retention and lacing, which lasts throughout the glass.

S- Smells of grapefruit and pineapple with a slight yeast character also present. A slight caramel sweetness possibly from the malt in the background.

T- Floral and grassy hop flavors along with some citrus fruit, once again the pineapple and grapefruit from the nose is apparent. A sweet note (possibly caramel malt?) is present on the back end of the sip. Moderate bitterness, but it doesn't overpower or peel your enamel like some in the style. No alcohol taste is present.

M- Medium/high carbonation, low/medium mouthfeel, and a great drying note on the end from the low finishing gravity of this beer really dries things out and makes for a refreshing beer that you want to take another sip of almost immediately.

O- Trying to be as objective as possible with this one, but in all honesty, I just love this beer! It is incredibly drinkable; I could easily drink 3-4 of these in the time it takes me to drink some other IPAs. The flavors of the centennial hops dominate, but there is enough malt to back it up. In addition, the finishing gravity of this beer makes for an easy drinking beer that doesn't fill you up.
