Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Sample from batch #244-245-246 at Kurtkeller 004: Pipeworks-tastic 01 on 01/18/2014. Pours a clear orange-amber color with a thick and foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, pine and malt. Medium to full body with a resiny hops character and flavors of caramel malt and citrus. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

jbrana (351) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Sweet and citrusy, with a mild flavor of pine and grass. This beer is kind of like Bell’s Two Hearted on steroids. Very good, and a nice balance of sweet and bitter.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Recent bottle from 20 West. Looks great with a cloudy light orange body and lots of bubbly head. However, only mild hop aroma, and understated citrus taste - though palate erasing.Still decent drinkability.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy floral citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew that exceeded my expectations.

22 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sticky citrus, resin, caramel malt, herbal notes, the hops leave a lasting bitterness on the palate. I like the beer, but wouldn’t want to do a bomber of it myself.

22oz bottle, shared by a local rater. Mostly hazy darker amber color. Minimal bubbly white head, no lace really sticks. Awesome biscuity caramel malt profile. Great piney, citrusy, dank centennial hop nose, and good resiny hop finish. Smooth, crisp, light carbonation, more dry finish, bigger body. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light sweet. No hint of the alcohol. Very tasty and easy drinking. Great centennial showcase.
