Bomber. Lots of classic NW hop flavors- peach, bitter citrus pith, some grass. Resiny mouthfeel, good lacing. Fun beer, esp to share w/ friends. Thanks Drew & Micah!

Maverick34 (2041) - New York, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottled. Brownish tinged pour with a sticky foamy head. Serious hops aroma, the centennial is hitting you with resin etc. Piney malty taste, pretty chewy for a big beer. good.

nearbeer (3427) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 18, 2014
650 ml. Pours a crisp copper-amber with a lasting creamy head. Nose is earthy molasses, orange tea, and apple. Tastes of molasses, apple, minty resin, earthy tea leaf and fresh toasted grain. Light-medium body starts sweet but has an almost annoying wood-bitter finish. Mostly smooth medium level of carbonation

ACHops (591) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 4, 2014
On tap @ Collins Pub. Pours dark orange amber with medium white head. Aroma is light amber malt and earthy fresh hops. Taste is clean sweet amber malt, followed by big bitter hops. Nice pine and grassy notes on the hops, and lots of them. Finishes clean, even after all the bitterness. Fairly malty for a NW IPA. Nice beer.

haddon90 (1383) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slight hazy orange color with a nice, lacing head. Light, hoppy aroma with some citrus notes. Hoppy taste. Not much in terms of citrus in the taste. Dry finish. Not an amazing IPA but decent.

Very hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is minerally crisp. Creamy malt with big crystal malt caramel and a little toffee. Nice malt base! Big and bitter marmalade hops with a contrasting pine. Finishes smooth with a barleywine like salty bitterness and bitter linger. Overall quite barleywine like in character. Nice!
