12 oz bottle poured into my trusty Dogfish Signature glass.

Its really been six years since my last review? Damn, does time goes fast. Pours a nice copper with a half inch off white head that faded after a minute or so and pretty decent lacing down the glass. A very floral scent with some lemon for good measure. Medium body and light to medium carbonation. Crisp and clean. The flowery notes really come out at first with a nice dry hoppy finish. Very well balanced. Overall I am quite happy with this beer. I really like seeing brewers showcase a single hop and do it well.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Flying Dog chalice

A: Burnished copper, with the slightest head that maintains itself for a modicum of time and with some lacing.
S: That's Centennial all right. Ripe mango with a side of pine cone.
T: Watery and light. Comes across as hop water.
M: Light carbonation, and quite watery.
O: Not as good as the Columbus Supper Rations. It grows on you as you drink it though.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a bronzed slight transparency. Slim finger-ed white speckled head left foamy clingy rings. The smell had a big sharp zesty piney spice. Gently letting in some light citrus. The taste was mainly zesty sweet with a slight sharp glossy pine. A mainly piney aftertaste leads to a sweet dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was sharp like an AIPA but a gentle smoothness as it warmed on my tongue. Overall, this was a very good offering from Southern Tier. I’d definitely have it again.

12oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

A- pours a bright amber-orange color with a small creamy white head that reduces, leaving a small layer skimming the top

S- spicy floral hop with some lemon peel/citrus, toasted bread with some earthy must

T- floral hop up front with some earthy spice, underlying toasted malt, citrusy/lemon zest hoppy finish

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish

O- nice citrus/lemon hop notes from the centennial, a nice showcase

A - Less head than the other session beers. Color is a vibrant amber brown clear.
S - Again less aromatic than the other beers but it does smell rather hoppy and somewhat sweet.
T - As others said pretty much hop water. Very little hop presence or lingering hops and hardly no balancing body making it less a beer.
M - Watery and light really disappointing.

Overall skip this one and buy the other two unless your looking for a tick.

I feel like I am back in the U.S. Navy, where we never had "Lunch", but were served "Dinner" instead. Breakfast, Dinner and Supper were the order of the day. And Midrats aboard ship. I spied the entire series while on a brief visit to Country Garden 6-Pack today following a haircut and decided to get some chow.

From the bottle: "Brewed with 1 Variety of Hops and 1 Type of Malt".

I Pop!ped the cap and again commenced an aggro pour, producing ~ three fingers of fluffy, light-tan head with moderate retention. The sticky lacing made me cringe as it was going to need a jackhammer to get it out of the glass when I am finished. Color was Deep Amber/Light Copper to Copper (SRM = > 13, < 17) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was very floral, somewhat sweet, reminiscent of my late paternal grandmother's rose garden with a raspberry bush across the lawn. Fruity and flowery. Interesting. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste really matched the nose! I initially got a rosy, flowery flavor from it, but then I began to also taste red raspberries. This was a really mellow, tea-like flavor for an AIPA, but since it would be my last before hitting the rack, I was really happy with it. At another time of day, it might be said to lack Ooomph!, which is something for which I commonly dun beers. The finish was pleasant, low in bitterness, but not really what I am looking for from the style as a self-avowed hophead.
