3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Philadelphia location. Hazy golden amber beer. The aroma is loaded with rich pine resin. Nice orangey citrus as well over a lean pale maltiness. Flavour is also loaded with hops. More orange peel and a bit of grapefruit but substantially less resinousness than I typically associate with this hop. Soft bitterness and a lingering fruity/floral character. It’s got a zesty/floral character that I usually associate with noble hops. Solid IPA

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours orange with a white head. Sweet hoppy aroma, with citric and floral notes. The flavor is a bit too balanced. Citric/floral hops accompanied by sweet caramel malt. It’s good, but I was a bit disappointed by this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Philly. Pours a hazy copper (more hazy than their other IPA’s (and most of their standard beers actually) Nice foamy off white head and great lace. Aroma is piney, light mint, orange, good citrus- a bit dull overall- not as refined or bright in the hop dept- good caramel and carapils malts. Flavor is light earth, pine, zesty orange oils, a touch of grass, light citrus overall- good caramel light sweetness- mostly clean finish and a bit raw bitterness from the hops. Pretty good, just not hop forward enough for my liking (or even enough to showcase Centennial fully).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at the Philly location. The pour was amber colored, full sized head typical for the style, good lacing too. The aroma was citrusey hops with some resinous notes. The base beer may have had some fruity elements associated with the aroma, but hard to tell with the citrus there. The flavor followed the aroma, earthy bitter and slightly citrus Euro-hop type of presentation. Slight caramel and fruity ester malty base. Clean, well-carbonated, pretty good drinker - yet unexciting, as this brewer proved to me over several brews, pretty vanilla.

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.
