Pale amber in color with with quarter-inch head that dissipates. Strong lacing. Aroma thick in grapefruit and citrus and a mild spiciness. Medium body with lemon, citrus, and grapefruit bitterness. FInishes a bit thin on the bitterness. Mild alcohol warmth. Smooth overall, but lacking a big punch. A bit one-dimensional, but easy to drink and pleasing.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 30, 2010
12oz bottle courtesy of Frankenbrew. Pours a brilliant clear golden amber with a soapy white head thate recedes to a wispy cap and leaves some streaks of lacing. The aroma is wonderful with pithy citrus hops paired with resinous floral hops. Grapefruits, lemons and pine trees all rolled into one. Light bready malts in the background. The taste also has the sweet but slightly bitter citrus, grapefruits coming out a little more. The backbone is lightly toasted malts and a big, bitter finish just full of sticky pine resin and a little alcohol burn. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and sticky with hops. The carbonation is moderate but the beer just sticks on my tongue after each sip. This is a fantastic beer. One of the best IPAs I remember tasting. I’m starting to wonder if Central Waters is my favorite brewery. The hits just keep on coming...
