3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small gusher. Medium to big airy tan head on top of a deep muddy yellow orange colored beer. Looks strange.
Smell hops, citrus, pine, grapefruit, gass, honey, pilsmalts and some light sweet barley malts.
When taking a first and last sip, some chuncks of yeast (I assume) floath through the mouth.
Taste is a mix hops, citrus, herbs, bitter, lime, lime sweets and lime sour,
Pretty long hoppy bitter aftertaste with a light grape herby and light sour low aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft watery light spicy/tingly mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller body and a watery texture. Bit out of balance and watery, bit with a nice bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle (Alvinne Webshop) - exactly at BB date.
6- Acidic nettly hop aroma. Bretty funk too. Might have been more receptive if it wasn’t for the "visual" aspect of the pour. But sour is always on a razor edge for me - when it’s good for me it’s great, when it’s bad for me, it’s very unwanted.
2- Monstrous gusher, went off like a fire extinquisher. On pouring, much of the yeast was already mixed in, and much of the pour was foam, so in the end a metric fuckton of yeast ended in the glass, chunks and all. Overlooking the sinky bits, it looked kinda nice with its full persistent tight creamy head when finally in the glass, but there’s no way such a gusher can go unpunished.
7- Nettles and funk in the retronasals too. The taste has some soapiness, and some almost Orval like funky bitterness. Surprisingly full sweet malts. Yeasty - derrrr!
4 Crisp palate. Nice dry bitter finish, a little bit resiny, just a hint of tingle.
13 Not a bad beer, shame that they can’t get it into my glass in one piece.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. This gushed extensively and thus poured a really muddy orange with a massive whitish head. A nice orangey hoppy aroma as you’d expoect from Centennial. Bitter oranges in the mouth with plentiful yeast. It would be better if it hadn’t gushed I’m sure.
