This beer is a slightly hazy burnt orange with an off-white head. The aroma blends resiny and citrus hops with light notes of caramelly malts. The taste is quite bitter, slightly sour, and a touch sweet, but the sweetness comes through more in the aftertaste as the bitterness gradually fades. The palate fuses a soft carbonation, thick texture, a medium body.

12 oz Bottle. Tasted on 12/9/14. Bottle from Gomer's in Kansas City. Pours to a light Amber color with a medium head. Aroma has notes of leather, resin & earthy notes. The taste has pine, resin a darker malt & slight booze. As it warmed the flavors blended better. Overall a pretty good DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle bought outside of Chicago. Pours a clear golden with an orange hue. Aroma of pine and citrus.Flavor is clean with a medium body and rich malty sweetness There is a delicious juicy hop character that blends very well with the malty sweetness. Right up front is lots of caramel and a significant amount of sweetness but it blends perfectly into the high hop flavor and bitterness in this beer. Pine and citrus come through in the flavrwith just a touch of bitterness at the end. This beer leaves a clean palate with fading hops, caramel sweetness, and a hint of alcohol warmth on the tail end. Hop Centric is a delicious and well-rounded beer that is a must try for all DIPA lovers. It is pretty rich and probably too malty for some but it is still a helluva beer.

ChiGuy68 (426) - Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a hazy orangish hue with a frothy light orange head and minimal, streaky lacing. Aroma of hops and yeast with hints of citrus & grass. Heavy taste of hops that is well balanced with malt and alcohol. While this delicious Double IPA brings it with 9.9%abv, it is still incredibly drinkable and welcoming.

Pours a translucent copper with a thick white head. Aroma of bitter pine, sweet caramel malt and alcohol. Taste is sweet and malty, bitter pine and citrus. Fairly balanced but a bit too much of a malt presence for my liking.

Yellow amber aroma, little head with slight lacing. Spicy hop aroma. Hoppy crisp flavor with a small amount of carbonation. Slick and resiny.

Dal9000 (203) - Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Initial mild spice that is not indicative of hoppy beers. A mild orange spice that is smooth on the tongue. Little aftertaste but a taste of allspice continues. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Pours a slightly hazy darker golden color with off-white head. Pine, citrus, and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a little bread. Nice DIPA.

On tap at El Bait Shop. Pours a bright mahogany/ copper color with an off-white head. Aroma is barleywine-like, maltcentric, slight fruity and sweet. Fruit is tropical and bordering on dark fruits. Taste is definitely hop forward with a a clean, piney taste. Deep caramel malt backbone and the fruit is like the aroma, straddling tropical and dark. Medium body with a dry finish an a little acidic burn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
