Bottle thanks to a mysterious stranger! Lightish amber colored. Decent off-white head. Citrus aroma with little hints of malt. Light-medium bodied. Nice mixing of malt and hop with the hops slowly overcoming the malt in the finish. Really pleasant beer and would drink again.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy amber body, short-lived white head. Bread and some bitter hops in the aroma, overall it's subdued. Subtle caramel and bready malt with a refreshingly bitter hop flavor. I was initially taken aback by the flavor, thinking the beer was bad or poorly produced. That's not the case, as the flavor's just different that most other hoppy beers I've had (just like the comm. description states). The hops have a nice piney, earthy, musty character. Dry, piney finish.

12oz bottle. pours a hazy yellow color with a thin white head, aroma is mixed with fruit and sweetness with hop notes, the taste is overall more fruit like than hops but is still very enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clean hop dominated aroma, medium malt hop balance in the taste, nicely blended, high carbonation gives it a harsh mouthfeel, taste gets a little thin at the end. Still a high quality brew thatI wish would be distributed down by Milwaukee

Pours orange amber with a small white head, traces of it last throughout. Aroma is citrus and pine. Taste is sweet to bitter. Sticky mouthfeel. Overall this is a decent APA, nice balance of bitters and sweetness.

Drat at Baggataway, Pours amber with tan head and great lace. Notes of toffee, light roasted malt, some hop aromas and flavor - grass, pine, light citrus. Decent hop bitterness on the finish but not enough hop flavor for my taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught Hill Top - Stevens Point, WI: slightly hazed amber with a thin white head that leaves thin icing on the sides of the pint glass. Piney hop aroma that is just right for a good APA. Flavour is well rounded with a solid malt bill, good hop presence and a lingering bitterness, all delivered on a well carbonated and lively palate. An above average pale, from a previously unknown brewery to me, time to try some more.

Poured into a pint glass.
3.5 A: Clear medium yellow color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is about average andd a decent amount of lacing is left.
3.0 S: Grainy and lightly bready malts. Some toastiness and light neutral malt sweetness. Barely perceptible earthy hoppiness.
3.0 T: Tastes like the nose. Mainly grainy with some breadiness. Toasty with a moderate sweetness and light earthy hops.
3.0 M: Lighter medium body. Perhaps a touch too much carbonation. Neither very creamy nor crisp.
3.0 D: Not bad, but screams average throughout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright, golden body with a thick, fluffy white head. The aroma is pretty hoppy, but has a nice malty sweetness underneath. Citrus fruit, plants, caramel, grains, and malt. The body is exactly what you’d expect, average thickness to avoid being too filling. The flavors are good, though in consistent. At times I found it bitter, then sweet, and back to bitter. It really is interesting to see it go back and forth. The hops are used generously and offer good flavor. The malt base isn’t much to write home about, that’s rarely the reason I drink a hoppy beer. The malt has a definite purpose, but it is not the focus. Another well-crafted offering from Central Waters.
