3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottom of the can stamped "April 01, 2014."
Iím assuming "born on." This is only the second Central City beer Iíve ever been able to pull off.
I poured this into a pint glass.
The appearance had a semi-hazy golden orange color with a decent transparency about it. Light bubbles are seen rising to fill a one finger bubbly along the side foamy in the center white head. She dissipates at a nice pace leaving a fairly clingy lacing here and there.
The smell had a light floral to light spicy and even a light grassy connotation comes into play to combine fairly nicely.
The taste was basically the same with a decent sweet malt to pick up a crisp but balanced feel running over my taste buds..
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body and yes, this is sessionable. The carbonation was actually a bit kinder on the palate as I didnít get what I expected of an IPAís harshness but still created a fairly decent smooth effect that did compound a certain stickiness.
Overall, well, its a session IPA. Iím thinking Central City did everything they wanted to do with this one and Iím thinking I would have this again as its a flavorful "I.S.A." as indicated on the can.

355ml can. Smells great, but tastes like oily, resiny Mosaic hops and meaty malt. Not a fan at all. Iíll happily stick with their regular IPA instead.

The grapefruit came through strongest for me. Not overly bitter. Citrus fruit. Nice session ale.
