A solid IPA. Nice golden pour with a low white head. Aroma is hoppy and sweet. Flavor is fairly potent with hops and a nice balance of citrus and sweet malts. A little honey to smooth it out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub in Indianapolis, IN. Pours a clear copper colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet caramel malts, grapefruit citrus florals, some earthy pines, and a touch of toast. Flavor is similar. Grapefruit and orange florals and light pines up front with a medium sweet caramel, touch of toasted toffee, and some earthiness in the middle. Finishes balanced and moderately bitter with a light toasted toffee malt sweetness and a nice citrus hopping. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a soft, somewhat creamy, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent DIPA. Nicely hopped with some citrus earth and pines as well as a medium sweet, lightly toasted malt backing. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks decent; malty though. A fairly transparent orangish brown with off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells hoppy and malty with notes of honey. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A forgettable malt bomb of a DIPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Pours a clear, deep amber with a thick khaki head that settles to a ring and leaves plenty of clumpy, hanging lace. Nose involves a nice hop bouquet with spicy, citrus, and tropical fruit notes along with some light caramel and biscuit malt notes. I didn’t get much honey, and definitely though I got more "centennial" hop notes than amarillo, probably because of the name. Pretty sweet flavor wise, but also quite bitter, so a nice balance there. Light to medium bodied, crisp, with a largely bitter finish. A really nice DIPA, lots to love.

Draft @ Three Fires. Sweet musty orange, caramel, and light piney aroma. Clear copper with a small off-white head. Sweet musty orange, caramel, piney hops, and light alcohol flavor. Medium creamy body, soft carbonation. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint glass on tap at three wisemen in Broad Ripple... Amber color with a nice citrusy smell. Goes down extremely smooth for a double IPA, but I can still get a robust hop flavor.
