The beer was quite good. I bottled about 4 gallons and took it home for my son's first birthday party. There was about 3 or 4 other beers available, but mine seemed to disappear before the other beer was touched. Anyways, I am a hop head so this could be tamed down a bit. The citrus from the Centennial was also quite evident so maybe pull back on that a bit as well. But overall, I was quite happy and will be making this again with slightly less Centennial and possibly less Amarillo. Makes a good summer beer as is, though.
