UPDATED: MAY 3, 2014 Love this double. Central Waters is definitely one of my favorite breweries. There?s a great cloudy amber color. The bitter hoppiness makes you want more. Definitely always a great choice!

Pours clear, dark ruby reddish amber. Medium white head, partially lasting. Big aroma, lots of hops, lots of malt; caramel, citrus. tropical, pineapple. Medium to full body. Bold hop finish, resiny. Quite nicely balanced and surprisingly very easy drinking. Really nicely put together.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours mostly clear orange with thinner white head. Smell is big orange and grapefruit citrus hops with a mild light sweet malt backing.Taste is more big citrus hops, light sweetness and a noticeable alcohol punch that may be more accentuated by the massive spicy bitterness. Nice double ipa that doesn’t hide the booze greatly, but still doesn’t feel like a 9%er.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper colour with a thin white head and clinging lace. Sweet tropical fruit aroma. Malty flavour, sweet fruit and honey. Tangy bitter finish. Alcohol cuts through the sweetness at the end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep golden pour with a thick white head. The aroma is great - dank hops with a citrus and papaya along with a fairly peppery alcohol nose. Sweet malts but they’re cut quite a bit by herbal/spicy hoppiness. Lean and dry with a long lingering finish. Warming intensifies the hoppiness and brings out a bit of peppery flavour. Lovely.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle thanks to phaleslu. Pours a hazy copper with a fluffy white head of foam. Good retention. The aroma is grassy and herbal with some leafy notes to it as well. Taste is dry and sort of peppery with a touch of heat coming across on the back of the throat.
