COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. We’re not dishing on the latest undeserving Hollywood celebutante counting down their 15 minutes. We’re talking about the big, bold, and beautiful Centennial hops. With huge floral and citrus notes, these high alpha hops are one of the the industry’s few triple threats. They can be used for bittering, aroma, and flavor, which make them perfect for our latest Single Hop Imperial IPA.

Draft at Frisco Taphouse in Columbia, MD, haven’t seen any bottles anywhere in the Frederick area? Served in a goblet, orangy-golden color with small white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops, some herbal notes and some caramel malt. Taste is aroma; adding citrus hops leaning towards orange rind and resin, nicely balanced with the caramel malt. Heavy body, low carbonation, medium bitterness, clean finish. Pretty decent, not my favorite of this line but good.

DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2013
[10/7/13] Draught at Delirium Hoppy Loft in Brussels. Clear deep golden. Aroma of piney hops, a bit stale. Flavor has some sweetish malt, a bit caramelly, and some stale piney hops with pretty light bitterness. Too sweet, not bitter enough and not fresh enough. Still OK.

Lore (2863) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 11, 2013
slightly hazy light amber colour, moderate off-white head; aroma of pine resin, some citrussy notes and hints of honey; taste is fully dominated by hoppy bitterness and resin; not bad, but a bit one dimensional (similarly to the most of the single-hop IPAs)
