4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

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!

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.

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.
