COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Centric is one of a series of special limited-run beers in styles that are more extreme or unusual. This one is a real hop blast, dripping with the resiny soul of fresh Northwest hops. Don’t come crying to us if it’s too much for you; this one’s for hopheads only! And get it now, cause when it’s gone, it’s gone. Boo hoo. 22.7 Plato 100.1 IBU

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2006
A slightly hazy orange beer with a small orange head. The aroma is very hoppy and grassy, while the flavor is sweet hoppy - but a somewhat herbal hoppiness, that doesn’t quite do the trick for me. The mouthfeel is slightly sticky.

oh6gdx (20313) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2006
Bottled. Dark hazy orange colour, mediumsized creamy off-white head. Aroma is hops and yeast. Flavour is hoppy, grassy and alcoholic. The alcohol and hops reaches their peaks in the finish and leave a wellbalanced flavour afterwards.

omhper (19370) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2006
Bottled. Deep amber, minimal head. Fruity, flowery hop aroma. Dry and surprisingly light bodied. Very drinkable for it’s size. Pleasant lightly resiny notes mingle with sweaty grapefruit. Very bitter finish. Fresh and (given it’s size) very drinkable with all focus on the hops.

anders37 (16691) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 2, 2006
Hazy orange colour with a tan head. Hoppy fruity aroma with hints of resin. Malty flavor that is well balanced with the hoppy resin flavor. Dry bitter aftertaste. A nice one.

Slight haze on this amber beer, good off white head. Slightly soft and slightly syrupy palate, Sweetish caramel malt backbone. Nice semi sweet hops. A little mango and orange with a trace of grapefruit. Cool pine notes. Minerals. Finishes soft and smooth. Hugely drinkable tasty beer delivered in a lovely palate. Delicious!

fiulijn (14533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 12, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2009 2009-11-10, draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 8-5-8-5-17=43
Dark amber color, bright. Powerful and balanced hop aroma, with resins and fruits, light soap, but in a pleasant way. Good body strength, full caramel and malt flavor, with enough sweetness, as I like; it has a very strong bitterness, with strong resins and light fruitness. Bold but at the same time well balanced. Excellent.

2006-01-27, bottle, 7-3-8-5-15=38
Amber color. Hoppy aroma, with some hospital alcohol. The hoppiness is huge, aggressive, barely balanced by the malt, but I love hops…

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2006
(22oz. bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy amber body with an average off-white head and good lacing. Potent aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, and light notes of breadiness. Flavor of caramel malt and hops; descent balance, although the hops seemed a bit weak for an IIPA. Bitter finish.
