3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap (squealer). Darkish amber with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of pink grapefruit, over-ripe peaches, caramel. Taste is quite muddled with the aromatics standing out less than some others in the series and the bitterness less clean. Along with the caramel and light biscuit, there’s peach, some mango, subdued citrus, some pepper and a fair bit of soap at the end.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I pretty much dig this Centennial Single Hop IPA. It has a very characteristic dark hoppy aroma. Not too overruling but a rather special combination of caramel and grapefruit-like hops.
