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.

Very strong odor and also very strong flavor. One of them clearly the best beer I ever drank. Good taste and air and does not make me disappointed. 10% makes no difference.

Pours a clear copper color with huge white frothy head and tons of lacing. Aromas of citrus, floral, but grapefruit comes thru strong. Taste is nice light bitterness that grows stronger throughout with a light sweetness. Lots of carbonation with long, dry finish. Overall, a great tasting beer. Not overly complex, but the centennial hops just brings such great aromas and flavor. Very well done.

From bottle. Pours golden and clear with small head. Aroma was a fruity lemon punch. Taste follows by adding a small sweet backbone and a clean bitter finish.

[email protected] horse. A rich nose of mangos and lemons, deep amber in colour with lots more mango in the body and a resinous finish. Dry hopped with el dorado and simcoe

Lovely brew. Thin white head and some skimpy, lasting lace. Bright, copper hued ale. Lovely, spicy, piney, citrusy,fruity and resiny nose. Body is tame for the abv. but really mouthwatering and juicy. Lotsa hops, earthy and fruity, fairly bodacious with a mild malt backing, just the ways i like,m! Groovily fruity, tropical finish with a lesser than expected bite but still very nice indeed. Bottle from statelineliquors.

Draft at Paradiso Georgetown. Clear golden color, solid white head and lacing. Aroma of grass > pine. Taste of hops and scallions. Nice hoppy kick without being overpowering.

Cask (RBESG 2011, London) at White Horse on Parson’s Green. Clear red/amber - white head. Nice freshness, toasted, knækbrød, berries, fruity, nice medium bitterness, amber malts, grassy, light candy sweetness, cheese. OK.

On tap @ Bulls & Bears. Poured a sightly hazy orange/bronze color with a small but thick pillowy white head. Nice lacing as well. Aroma is one dimensional but a nice citrus hop smell throughout. taste is moderatley sweet. Orange and grapefruit flavors. Hoppy and a bitter finish. It’s chewy with a resiny finish that lingers with a bit more bitterness than the first few sips. I like this better than Flying Dog’s Simcoe but not quite on the level of the El Dorado.

Damn fine brew! Lots of citrus, floral, spicy hops in the nose. Tons of rich hop flavor, some grapefruit, floral notes, light honey and caramel. Really a great job in highlighting the hops here.
