330ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Orange in colour with a thin but long lasting off-white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of pine, grapefruit, toasted malts, caramel sweetness, resiny. The flavour is quite bitter, pine and citrus, lots of hops, sticky. Bitter hoppy mouthfeel, lightish body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy, warming at the end.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky copper color with persistent head. Aroma is a bit fruity and also has a lot of pine. Taste follows with dank, earthy hops and a solid bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. Overall a very nice IPA that showcases the Centennial hop very well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Alla spina. Torbido color arancio con pannoso cappello di schiuma bianco sporco. IPA fruttata e dolciastra che offre profumi floreali e un gusto discretamente amaro e ben bilanciato. Corpo medio, effervescenza gentile, finale un po’ corto. Il Centennial regala note agrumate e "candite" molto piacevoli ma non č il massimo della persistenza.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"nicely done and balanced. spice, floral nose, and orange peel all rolled into one. this one captured more of the hop characteristics you’d find with a hop blend ipa, and was one of the slight standouts."

4oz on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Half hazy orange amber color. Thin ring of off-white head. Some ropes of lace. Good bigger orange citrus hop to this, mandarin. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly slick texture. Caramel malt. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Solid single hop IPA, interesting stuff.

Aroma is citrus and hops. Had a gigantic tan foam head that didn’t leave any lacing. Centennial has notes of jasmine and pine, minor citrus.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Cloudy, dark amber colour with average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Piney, hoppy aroma is perfectly integrated into a caramel malty presetting, sweet-ish, some pineapple, some spruce and resin. Taste is bitter and piney hoppy, explicit, slightly dry and ligneous pineapple note, some tartness, spruce and resin, a touch of glue. Sadly not the freshest example.
