Impressive IPA. Deep copper. Nose quite hoppy, very citric. Very good flavor, hops are very powerful, lots of grapefruit, stunning buckets full of perfume, incredibly spicy, has very nice, sticky malts to back it up. Full and creamy. Very, very good.

Amber/copper color, with a small white head. Grapefruit and pine dominate the aroma, with some malt as well. Taste is also grapefruit, with a bit of caramel. Body is thinner than I would like.

Nice coppery color with a fair amount of white foamy head.Foam dissipates fast leaving lacing on the sides of the glass.But the aroma,wow ,kicks you right in the olfactory glands.Intense aroma of grapefruit from the hoppiness of this brew.And I am not even disappointed in the flavor of this IPA.This is a beer that I Must seek out and find more as I only purchased a single.

Off copper color with lasting bubbly ivory head. The aroma just blows you away with flowers and citrus. This one is right up there with the bad-ass IPA’s. Smooth, crisp. hoppy as all get out and dry. Gotta have it. Man, I wish I remember who sent me this. Thanks.

This bottled brew tasted at DrewLaPalooza poured a medium sized head of fine to large sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. Its body was transparent carbonated and brown in dolor. It had a hoppy IPA aroma and a tingly hoppy biting mouth feel. The flavor was also very hoppy with some caramel notes. A very typical IPA that the ho heads will enjoy.

A really good IPA. Very, very floral and complex in aroma and flavor. Balanced and beautiful. Finishes round and perfectly bitter.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2007 really good IPA. strong hop presence. the label is cool too. Rerate: my rating stays the same. I tried this from the tap and it was still great and hoppy. I also noticed some woody tastes too.
RERATE. This pours almost flat, opaque copper color. Tastes exactly like Manayunk Krooks Mills. In fact i think it’s the same beer. both were pretty flat and brown, same aroma, and same exact flavor...down to the lovely citrus/grapefruit hops and slight water down.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This brew is a lightly cloudly brownish amber color. Medium light tan head and fair lacing. The aroma is a little musty with hops and citrus. Medium-bodied with hops, pine and citrus flavors. Kind of mild on the hops scale but a decent flavor profile altogether. The finish is bitter and lingering, with a touch of grapefruit. Overall a fairly worthwhile IPA, despite lacking punch.

A nice IPA. Copper/orange color. Nice head. Good balance between malt and hops. Centennials are interesting change from the ubiquitous cascade. I wouldn’t turn down another.
