Very nice color, rich head that left a slight film. Aroma was great lots of flavors that you could smell right after the pour. Taste was pine and hops, great flavor all the way through that stays on the palate well! Very nice double IPA

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
