On the brink of extinction, they were plucked from obscurity and thrown into the spotlight. Facing ignorance and disinterest, someone saw potential...and knew they would be big. Were not dishing on the latest undeserving Hollywood celebutante counting down their 15 minutes. Were talking about the big, bold, and beautiful Centennial hops. With huge floral and citrus notes, these high alpha hops are one of the the industrys few triple threats. They can be used for bittering, aroma, and flavor, which make them perfect for our latest Single Hop Imperial IPA.

Not a bad beer, but not a great IPA in my opinion. Not much aroma and not very smooth for being a single-hop.

Cask at North Bar, Leeds. I had this while being told that I hadnt secured the job I wanted, so I may mix up my emotions and characteristics of the beer, for which I apologise in advance. Aroma is of disappointment. No, sorry, I mean hops. Lots of hops. Floral, piney hops. Taste is BITTER. Sorry, that was me again. I mean BITTER. Floral, resiny, piney hops, big, brash, bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is warming. Nice, but not really my thing. The taste of personal failure...

On draft at Tap 25. It pours orange with a very floral, piney aroma. The flavor is extremely floral with lots of rose petals, some apricots and a piney/woody bitter finish. The alcohol is very noticeable and a bit distracting. Pretty brutal finish too. Love the Centennial flavors, but its a bit tough to drink.

On tap; this seems to have potential but misses for me. The nose is strongly Centenial and nice. It poured really cloudy dark yellow. Taste is just off for me, its syrupy and somehow still seems thin. The alcohol is hot and not subtle at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ok, this was a gift from the salesman to prove to me that Flying Dog can make some decent beers. This one isnt all bad, but not great either. Typical from this brewery, on the thin, weak, and meek side. Single dimensional, the 10%abv. gives you a warming feeling, and probably saves this beer. Im glad I didnt waste money on this.

Draft. Pours court with a thin head. This its the lightest ten percent ipa that Ive ever had. Smooth like a champagne. Enjoyable.
