COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On the brink of extinction, they were plucked from obscurity and thrown into the spotlight. Facing ignorance and disinterest, someone saw potential...and knew they would be big. We’re not dishing on the latest undeserving Hollywood celebutante counting down their 15 minutes. We’re talking about the big, bold, and beautiful Centennial hops. With huge floral and citrus notes, these high alpha hops are one of the the industry’s few triple threats. They can be used for bittering, aroma, and flavor, which make them perfect for our latest Single Hop Imperial IPA.

Damn fine brew! Lots of citrus, floral, spicy hops in the nose. Tons of rich hop flavor, some grapefruit, floral notes, light honey and caramel. Really a great job in highlighting the hops here.

Gravity cask @ Beer Temple. Amber color, a bit murky. Aroma’s boast of sweet fruit, resiny hops, oak & vanilla. Flavor is sweet & bitter, nicely balanced, with notes of oak. High alcohol content well hidden. Bitter finish (with some residue). Very good.

Hazy copper color with a white head. Pine and floral hop aroma. Rich mouthfeel, nice caramel malt in the background. As expected, high level of bitterness, but not abrasively so.

GBBF. Cask. Hazy amber beer. Little off white head. Light dry palate. Rich hops - orange and tangerine. Finishes with mild bitterness. Very drinkable DIPA. Sadly my last ever beer in Earls Court - a good one though.

On tap @ Bulls & Bears. Poured a sightly hazy orange/bronze color with a small but thick pillowy white head. Nice lacing as well. Aroma is one dimensional but a nice citrus hop smell throughout. taste is moderatley sweet. Orange and grapefruit flavors. Hoppy and a bitter finish. It’s chewy with a resiny finish that lingers with a bit more bitterness than the first few sips. I like this better than Flying Dog’s Simcoe but not quite on the level of the El Dorado.

Pours a clear copper color with huge white frothy head and tons of lacing. Aromas of citrus, floral, but grapefruit comes thru strong. Taste is nice light bitterness that grows stronger throughout with a light sweetness. Lots of carbonation with long, dry finish. Overall, a great tasting beer. Not overly complex, but the centennial hops just brings such great aromas and flavor. Very well done.

Super fruity aroma. Peach all over, some other fleshy fruits and apple. Sticky sweet. Bit of a mess. Finish fairly fruity. Matches the US IPA style which I find too sweet.
