Bought this along with Hoptimum, this was far superior. Not saying Hoptimum was bad but this was very very good.

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.

travita (3692) - Frisco, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2013
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.

kkleu357 (156) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2013
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!

beerbaaron (919) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2013
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.

MarinEvelyn (464) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2013
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.

Westmeister (1520) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 9, 2013
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.

Gethinbeer (2070) - Musky, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2013
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.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
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.

phaleslu (5863) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 12 oz. bottle from Greenbush Bar. Pours a mostly clear gold with an inch of rocky, frothy off-white head. Notes of orange, grapefruit peel, caramel and pale malts, and lots of florals. Light-medium bodied, with soft carbonation and a bitter mouthfeel. Simple, solid DIPA.
