Test batch: Centennial Imperial IPA #1

Last week, I got to test out my test batch brewing process with a style I’ve been wanting to tinker around with for a while: Imperial IPA. I  took the opportunity to showcase Centennial hops, which I’ve not had much of on it’s own. I’ve only just cold crashed this beer, so tasting notes to follow. See below for the recipe:
