3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A lot of hop expression here and for Cascade’s weaker brother, Centennial gets a rare spotlight and does not disappoint. Like a baritone solo that no one saw coming, it puts out some big bitterness, neroli, light phenols, bushy aromas. The 10% is appreciable but not defeating, and without much warming or indication of fusels. A tidy beer at 10% highlighting a largely unsung hop well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was a pale amber, whitish cover. Aroma is strong herbal hops, light toast. Taste is similar, not my favorite hop ever, the herbal bite overpowers any malt subtleties.

Draught (or cask?). Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, some floral hops as well as bready malts. Flavour is quite much the same in a nice balance. Simple, but tasty.
