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.

"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.

"Livet är ett privilegium för medelmåttor", skriver muntergöken E.M. Cioran. Och det är därför det här halvdana ölet drar åt sig toppbetyg som flugor till skit, frestas man att tillägga. Sitt ni kvar och skåla, själv har jag en värdighet att tänka på.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle. Pours a half-hazy dark orange with a fluffy off-white head that settles on the beer and stays there forever. Lots of sediment in this bottle. Big citrus aroma with lots of caramel, as well. Taste is moderately bitter, with citrus and caramel. Bitter finish.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
The Centennial one, with moussy, yellowish head and misty amber colour like the other ones (though the head formation was notably more spectacular in the Amarillo and Tomahawk versions, but this can be a coincidence). Very, very citrussy aroma, even of orange and grapefruit juice, tonic water, thyme, grass, lavender, tobacco, flowers. Citrussy onset, strong carbonation but still rather thin mouthfeel, velvety, very early spicy, citrussy, floral hop bitterness. I love the perfume of Centennial and this beer puts it into its full glory.
