Very nice. Looked like caramel. Citrusy aroma with some cotton candy. Big piney opening, bit of a lemony note, then finishing dry and bitter. Not too hard in mouth- just a little tickle at the tip of the tongue.

750 mL bottle. Hazy copper pour with a smallish bubbly white head. Aroma and flavor both hold definite malt balance to a bitter lemony hop profile. Might be a touch oxidized but it still worked OK. Ok, nothing great.

26 July 2011, tap at the brewpub. hazy orange with slight lacing. nose is sugary alcohol and lemony hops. hops are astringent but not hugely aggressive. full body and fizzy. really really similar to 120min but not quite as sweet and hops are more astringent. maybe a bit more lemon but not too much. very nice!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
A: The beer pours an amber color with a finger of white head.
S: Citrus peels dominate the aroma, especially grapefruit. Some sweet citrus notes in there, too. A fair amount of piney hops are also there along with some caramel malts and toffee.
T: The beer is just bitter, and that’s about it. Not too much in terms of the hop flavor, maybe some pine. Perhaps a hint of tangerine peel. Some slight caramel sweetness on the back end as well as a bit of pine sol.
M: Medium in body with a medium to high carbonation.
O: Just way too bitter without featuring much hop flavors. At least it wasn’t super boozy like a lot of Dogfish Head beers can be.

Real solid dipa, I sometimes find them too potent, but this is a perfect blend of hops and malt. Try it if you can.

Bottled. Pale straw w/ slight haze. More subtle lemon nose than you’d expect. Taste is a centennial showcase indeed. Where Centennial hope end & lemon additions begin is a fuzzy delicious line to try to draw. Very fun.Wedding gift bottle from Josh C!

750 ml bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a hazy amber color with a one and a quarter finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is pine and herbal hops. Finish is fairly bitter, but not astringent. Flavor is hops, esters, light citrus, and light toasted malt. Medium to full body. A good beer.

Thanks to Steph for this one. Pours a juicy transparent orange, with a small head. It has a weird, almost medicinal nose. Lemon drops and some sugar over a hop-o-rama. Tons of citrus. Flavor unfortunately keeps the medicinal qualities and amplifies the bitterness. Hops are at the forefront, and there’s a little something extra, but I’m not a huge fan.

Pours golden yellow with ample cream colored head. Very nice lacing. Aroma is zesty spice with fruit notes. Taste is malt forward with a bitter sour mix of hops and lemon. Crisp finish with subtle lingering bitterness. Honestly this tastes like a lighter version of ninety minute with Lemons in it.
