3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can into a pint glass.
A: Pours a golden amber color with good clarity. The head poured is ragged and downright ugly - it has a soapy-looking texture and fades away pathetically. She’s not a looker, that’s for damn sure.
S: Now this is better. The hops win out here, providing notes of grapefruit, pine, lemongrass, and even some tropical fruit touches. Maltiness doesn’t really come through, but I don’t care about that.
T: A combination of lemongrass and pine needles open things up, changing to a slightly tropical tone in the middle. There isn’t much of a finish due to the dryness. All the carbonation creates an illusion of bitterness on the palate, but when given the chance to calm down, it reveals a nice flavor-to-bitterness ratio, with even a negligible hint of flavor layering.
M: Dry, dry, dry. It manages to avoid a watery pratfall, though, because of the lingering resin qualities. On the other hand, it’s ridiculously fizzy - which makes the brew seem more bitter than it is, among other things.
O: It doesn’t make me hard the way Lagunitas DayTime did, but that’s because Centennial is pretty low down on my list of preferred hops. Still a successful low-alcohol hop vessel, though.
Can. When it comes to IPAs, I prefer Session and White ones. This one is pretty good. Golden in color with a medium head. Aroma is very mild in the hoppy department, not slap you in the face strong which is true of the taste also. Usually hoppy flavor. jmm635 (1017) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Pours a clear orange color with a big white head that fades to nothing. Aroma of citrus hops with a strong malt presence. Pretty good but nothing monumental. gschrade (1099) - Collinsville, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2015
I had this at Global Brew. I thought this was a typical IPA, a little hoppy, smooth flavor. I would drink this again.

(Can). One of the selections for the 2015 St Ceario festival. New packaging from photo shown on RB site. Decent IPA but hard to stand out amongst the many in this class. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Exiledmangoes (1) - - JUN 22, 2015 does not count
Nice hop to its step, comes in a can, supreme drinkability, drink it on the patio while working on your tan, you’re the man

Very nice for the hot weather. The hops give it an added dryness from regular hot weather type beers. Hoppy aroma and a hoppy flavor. Very easy drinking and refreshing. nearbeer (5604) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 25, 2015
Pint on tap. Foggy orange-caramel color with a thin film of foam. Nose is resin and green herb with some caramel and citrus underneath. Tastes the same. Light-medium body has a nice balance and medium carbonation. obguthr (6657) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2015
Lilly and starfruit nose. Clear amber, medium head. Hearty malt, dandelion. Medium body, easy carbonation, low bitterness. Tasty and smooth. Nice intrpretation of the style. fidelis83 (2509) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 17, 2015
Hazy orange to copper pour with a one finger, creamy to soapy off white head. Aroma is planty, citrus, grass, fruity esters, toast and a little biscuit. Flavor is toasty, citrus, grassy, biscuit, fruity esters and a little toffee. Light body, medium to heavy, sharp carbonation. Good stuff, lots of flavor for the ABV, somewhere between American IPA and English IPA in character. callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2015
Hazy orange colored body, medium sized white head, and soapy lacing. Light florals, citrus, and cracker. Simple and pleasant. Medium to light bodied, moderate carbonation, mild bitterness.
