hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle... Hazy amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is ridiculously fruity and floral accompanied by tropical fruits, perfume and all other things centennial. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor features tons of heavy, fruity and rindy bitterness with a solid, malty underpinning that holds everything together. Lengthy, bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

BLADT (625) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle pour. Semi opaque good with thin head. Decent lacing. Earthy nose of pine, caramel and booze. Buttery. Smells warm. Full body. The centennial hops shine. Bitter throughout, especially on finish. Drinks warm.

1st June 2014
Hazy deep amber beer, small pale cream coloured head. Palate is crispy. Mild minerals. Crystal malt toffee. Good orangey hops with lesser pine and hop spice. Mild bitterness towards the smooth finish. Good beer but a bit too much toffee malt for a dipa.

Dfonorow (1445) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2014
On tap at Mash Tun Festival 2013. Pour is cloudy orange with a an off-white head. Aroma and flavor are both of sweet caramel, grapefruit, mango, and honey. Hops are fairly mild compared to the malts in the finish.

Dogbrick (8141) - 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 (449) - 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.

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Pours deep orange golden with small white head. Nose is pine, citrus, light caramel malt. Flavor is nicely bitter, nicely balanced and a pretty good showcase of the centennial hop.

Sammy (8663) - 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.
