3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Share courtesy of MikeJslc. It pours with a clear copper body that supports a white head of foam. The aroma offers up some sweetness, malts, biscuit malt, a bit of sweet orange hard candy and faint resiny hoppiness. The taste has a resiny hop character and seems to lack hop depth and flavor which prevents it from tying in with the various malt notes. I get a bit of esteriness here and there too as a bit of grapefruit citrus notes pop up near the finish. This seems disjointed.

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.

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

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.

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!
