Centennial Zest Ale

Recommended Posts

This past summer when I first began using Mr. Beer, I had a Goose Island IPA and was hoping to try to replicate that in some fashion.  Well, I'm not sure it's as good as Goose Island, but it's not too far off, imo.  I basically took the Horse's Ass Ale recipe and just included 1oz of Centennial hops and 1 lemon zest.  I tried it this past weekend after it conditioned for 26 days and was really impressed.  Kinda tastes like a "light" IPA.  Poured light copper, a slight hoppy/lemon-y aroma, a little bit of lacing left along the glass. Just a thin head remains throughout.  Crisp, dry finish, honey and lemon taste are both very subtle.  Really enjoyable -- and very basic recipe to make.
