Clear light amber - certainly sweeter and a bit more simplistic than their other ipas, but this is actual to the benefit of the beer, as it becomes an excellent showcase of the hops - aroma is bursting with tangy citrus (grapefruit, orange), which the sweet malts add a nice balance to - the flavor is the same - simple, clean, medium-high sweetness serves to balance the strong citrusy tang of the hops - simple but delicious - I’ve enjoyed pretty much every IPA I have had here.

From growler into Rader chalice. Pours a gold copper color with large head and lace. Aroma of straw hops and bread. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of grapefruit juice, straw and pine hops, slight pepper, citrus, bitter grapefruit rind. Overall flavorful, bold and tasty. NachlamSie (3600) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2014
10 oz. pour at the brewery. I’ve said this about basically every IPA
these guys make and I’ll say it again, they’ve got this down to a science.
The pour is crystalline and a beautiful shade of red. The nose is
powerfully and cleanly hoppy. This showcases Centennial perfectly.
It’s piney and herbal with a distinct bitterness and a drying finish.
The malts are non descript. The beer is just so clean. I love Centennial
as much as the next guy, but this one is just slightly less complex
than their Mosaic Single Hop and certainly less fulfilling as their
IPAs that feature a blend of hops. However, this is a fantastic beer
and is the most ideal vessel for giving people an idea of what Centennial
hops are all about.
