Hop Centric is one of a series of special limited-run beers in styles that are more extreme or unusual. This one is a real hop blast, dripping with the resiny soul of fresh Northwest hops. Don’t come crying to us if it’s too much for you; this one’s for hopheads only! And get it now, cause when it’s gone, it’s gone. Boo hoo. 22.7 Plato 100.1 IBU

22 oz. bomber pours a hazy glowing orange color with a thick creamy off-white head that leaves a nice lace in my glass. Nice hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pine, resinous sticky pine and grapefruit flavors , full bodied with a soft and creamy mouthfeel, not syrupy like most double IPAs, finishes with a lingering bitterness, alcohol very well hidden for almost 10%.

Aroma: the hops are aged and woody. Resinous palate but not overly so for 9.9 ABV. Caramel and malt come through, hints of bourbon and wood chip. Incredible depth and robustness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy amber/orange color; Medium creamy body; Aroma of malt, some yeast, floral hops, & citrus; Flavor of sweet malt, floral/pine hops, caramel, fruit, and citrus; Finish is dry & fairly bitter; Nicely balanced; Pretty decent overall.

Malty and not hop forward. Sweet and old hop. Very much not impressed by this. Yes I’m a Hop Senick, this isn’t hop centric.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 28, 2016
12oz bottle. Small off-white head atop clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, pine, some lemon. Taste is moderately sweet, lemon/pine, some bread/caramel. Resinous medium-full body, some acidity.

Bottle from beer club. The guy who's choosing the beers each month must be getting complaints from the hop heads. Since I'm not a hophead we know where this is going. At 100 + IBU's this is like the hottest sauce at your local wings place, let's do it just to see if we can. This isn't my thing, and I can't recover from the lingering bitterness. But hopheads rejoice and enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

snoworsummer (6071) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Draft. Pours clear copper with a bubbly, frothy beige head. Tastes like booze, bubblegum, caramel malt, citrus hops, and resin. Medium body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like citrus hops, resin, caramel malt, and booze.

trapped (3602) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 5, 2016
Draught @ Albion. Cloudy dark orange with foamy off-white head, light citrus aroma, low carbonation, initially sweet taste followed by medium bitterness, thin body, long sticky sweet finish. Quaint brew, to me the hops were not really "centric".

sinfull (1800) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Clear, amber color. One-finger thick , off-white head. Aroma of citrus , pine and caramel malt. Resinous taste with sharp, hoppy bitterness and some malt on background. Well balanced. A good one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Sampled at GABF 2015 in Denver. From my tasting notes a year late the was golden orange in my tasting glass with a white head. Nose of citrus and fruit. Medium body. Resinous mouth feel. Flavor is tropical fruit, citrus and some pine. Bitter finish. Very nice.

suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Hazy amber/orange pour. Small, creamy, off white head. Plenty of lacing. Big aroma of Cascade - orange, pine. Some malt notes in the back. Taste is malty up front - bread. Big hoppy bite follows with some orange and lemon notes. Big alcohol, big. A little too boozy, and it doesn’t seem to try and hide it.
