Really like this everyday IPA. Its honest. Pours a deep orange with a nice head that holds through til the end. Aroma is hops- a sweeter citrus as the malt is fairly apparent. The taste is smooth and clean. Not too heavy in the body and a nice bitterness that lingers and lingers. A solid beer from Central Waters, When I’m in the mood for a no frill IPA this is one at the top of my list.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange amber color with a nice off-white head. Aroma is mild pine and citrus with a malt background. The flavor is more pine and citrus hops with a creamy malt and bitter piney finish. Medium bodied and creamy palate with a nice medium carbonation. I could do with more of this

Thanks to exiled for sharing this beer.
The beer pours a golden orange color with a white head. The aroma is citrus hops but not as strong as I would have liked. The flavor is citrus hops with some medium bitterness. The flavor and aroma are both slightly subdued. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Great beer! Jes the way I like it. Poured with a smallish fine foamy off white head and some lace. Color is a clear amber. Aroma is malty, yeasty, earthy hop. Flavor’s the same and very nicely balanced for an IPA. Finish is great and balanced as well. Body is goood and ditto carbonation. Easy session beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper body with some light sediment floaties under a frothy one finger white head that slowly receded. Nice fresh piney and lightly citrusy aroma, with minimal interference from the malt. Quite bitter and biting up front, but unfortunately the malt bill can’t handle the IBUs enough to balance things out at all. Rather rough and brash at first, the middle to finish is rather lacking. There’s very little malt presence here, making it taste more like a hop tea than an IPA. Rather short moderately bitter finish. Mouthfeel is on the thinner side with moderate fizzy carbonation. OK I guess, but nothing to write home about.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle shared by AleDude. Pours clear copper with a medium tan head. Smells a bit old (and I know it is) with some grainy sweetness, but it still has a good citrus and pine hop character. Flavor is still nice and bitter with citrusy and piney hops and a clean finish. Solid. One thing I will warn against is the yeast. My sample was a clear copper, but AleDude got the back half of the bottle and it was anything but clear. Pour carefully, kiddies.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Semi hazy orange pour. Small white head. Pine and citrus hop nose and taste, plus sweet malts. Solid, not spectacular.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. copper/orange color with thin white head. definitely some floaties in there, suggesting this beer is unfiltered. always nice to get your B vitamins from your beer... not much hop aroma, but a whiff of pine with some sweet malt. taste is definitely a bit hoppier, mostly piney with some citrus as well. bitterness definitely stays on the palate long after swallowing. a pretty average ipa i would say. lacking in complexity but definitely drinkable.

Smelled delightful, but poured with a load of sentiment that eventually sat on the palate.
