Our celebratory 100th batch of beer has 100 lbs each of 5 different malts and 100 ounce Centennial Hops additions through the boil. It’s a hoppy made-up style of beer. We will now drink 100 ounces each and take a nap on the brewery floor.

Tap @ BCBB. Deep amber with small white head. Nose is strong centennial-grapefruit, light pine, a bit of caramel, toasty malt. Flavor is similar, good balance, not too boozy or sweet thankfully. Lightly resinous, mostly dry finish.

emacgee (4611) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Soft and clean orange amber pour with 1-2 fingers of khaki tan head. Nose is very nice and very intensely hopped. Lots of citrus and leafy hop character. Flavor is a little combative, dry and strongly bitterer with some graham cracker and toasted malt. Borders on astringent, body would do it well. Very zesty.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 12, 2012
On tap the brewpub and on cask at the Triangle Brewing Black Friday cask beatdown. Nice pour, a deep orange that’s both bright and murky at once. Earthy, son. Thick filmy head, very inviting overall. Very resinous nose, a potent mix of dank pine hops and bright fruit. I got little of the spice that GT did, though it showed up on the palate a bit, less so in the flavors. Certainly came across as an IPA to me, and a fairly well realized one at that.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Tap at Bull City. Clear reddish orange pour. Rocky foam. Nose is hoppy, sticky, anise/spices. Taste is spicy, nutty, very herbal. Sage, white pepper, mineral laden. Solid. Not really IPA though. Saison perhaps with American hoppiness. Will add this as IPA anyway since looks like the brewer’s intent was to make a very hoppy beer.
