First rating on this guy i guess. On tap at Philly location. Pour is hazy amber/gold with a frothy egg shell white head. Aromas of floral hops, soap, sweet malts, and resin. Flavor is resin, soap, piney hops, and some citrus. Very drinkable and full brew.

Draft at Princeton. Pours out a well carbonated, light copper color with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet malts, piney/citrus hops and some light sweet grainy notes. Taste is well balanced, some citrusy grapefruit hops, light sweet malty notes, wet bread and some nice lingering bitterness.

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

3.7 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).

3.7 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.

3.4 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.
