good seemingly one-hop IPA. Centennial packed, though, so it’s ample in flavor, aroma, and bitterness. Not wuite a standout, but good.

Bottle. Copper, clear, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, moderate resiny hops. Flavor of toffee, a little toast, moderate piney hop character. Fairly high caramel character for an IPA, although some resiny bitterness lingers in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty, jamy, old hops, grapefruity, resinous, sugary, ABV evident. Copper colour, medium, dense off-white head, lacing. Good bite, noticable sweet, spicy, ABV noticable. Medium body, soft carbonation, bitter finish.
Decent, but not aromatic enough for a higher mark.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours amber with a soapy etched top with some creamy hills. Smells mostly of tea and resin - uninspired. Flavor is much the same, malty with a sharp, monotone bitterness. Medium bodied on heavy with moderate carb and a dry finish. Not impressed.

Bottle from Central City Liquor store, Surrey
Amber color, hazy, medium sized head. Powerful hop aroma, caramel, lightly cheesy, puke; interesting. Semi-dry mouthfeel; strong caramel flavor with a toffee touch; strong bitterness, with resins and some fruits.
Quite heavy on the malts, but fairly good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden-amber. Light frothy head. The hops are a bit floral, a bit peachy but not all that fresh. Sweet malts are up front, a dash of alcohol as well, and then the rather old hops come knocking. Really fresh this is probably better but there’s no date on the bottle.
