3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is grassy & citrusy, pungent & restrained on booziness. It’s not especially complex, although it presents it’s self very nicely as a hop forward, fragrant, and enjoyable beer.
The flavor has a nice but never over the top bitter bite. The beer is hop forward, lightly sweet, citrusy and just a touch boozy.

From tap. Murky orange-brown. Large hop nose of pine and grapefruit. Full bodied taste of orange sherbet, shortbread and a nice resin out. Never too bitter. High abv tamed. Lingers on the palate. Great effort.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the old fashioned. Orange color with a foamy head. Fruity, mango, candied aroma. Taste is bright fruity hops and pine and some booze. High hop bitterness, slightly warming. Long finish. Intense hop flavor here but really it is still very complex. Definitely a hop bomb but still quite enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well carbonated. Dry hops and a full palate with intense hop flavor. This beer is more focused on the hops and the malt is underneath. Citrus and herbal finish.

Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The look is clear, thin white head, and golden yellow in color. The smell is citrus, grass, hops, and ok. The taste is a medium bitterness, citrus, fruits, and pine.

Pours with not much head. Lots of flowery hoppy smell. Great full body flavor. What sticks out to me is there is more to it than bitter hops. Can’t explain it, but my whole tongue us hit worth flavors, not just the sides.

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.

Very hoppy, citrus, malt, caramel, fruity. Tastes extremely hoppy, there’s a hop plant in my mouth! a little dry finish. Citrus. Similar to aroma.
