Pours a nice amber with a small head. The aroma is mild with some malt, caramel and bread. The flavor starts malty with the centennial coming in towards the end of the sip. I was hoping for a bit more bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the brewery. Golden pour, white head with moderate lacing. Centennial hop aroma. The hops jump forward in the mouth but have a Fruity Pebbles character to them. The malt is doing a nice job of propping up the hoppy flavors which fade into a bitter bite. The bitter finish dries out your mouth like the tanins in a bold red wine. I don’t eat meat, but I think a rich, marbled steak would be a nice accompaniment to this brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at new hope. Pours a nice amber color. Aroma is nonexistant, but this was a sampler glass. Taste is sweet and mildly lineup. Not holly enough for the ipa moniker. More a pale ale in my opinion.
